Part 211: POKEDEX #145: Zapdos

HP:90 Atk:90 Def:85 Spd:100 Spc:125 Total:490

Hoo boy, here's the titan of lightning. This one is pretty goddamn scary. Has the same Special as all of the birds, but has terrifying Speed to go along with it, with a pretty good Attack stat. Oh, and it can learn Drill Peck, which instantly makes it a really good Flying type. And it gets all the good stuff that Electric types get, but without the Ground weakness. This is the reason Rhydon and Golem excel in the metagame, to stop this destroyer of teams in its tracks. It's just the right combination of typing, movepool and stats that makes this birb a force to be reckoned with.
