Zapdos is a Legendary Electric/Flying-type Pokémon that first appeared in Pokémon Red and Blue. Along with Articuno and Moltres, it is one of the three Legendary birds. In Super Smash Bros. Melee, it can be spawned from a Poké Ball and attacks by using Thunder Shock, which involves Zapdos discharging sparks around it, dealing weak damage and knockback to opponents that end up near it. It is possible for them to get stuck in the sparks, racking up damage.

In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Zapdos occasionally appears in the background of the Prism Tower stage.

Zapdos flaps its wings, and summer storms appear, throwing lightning every which way. It's said that you can hear this legendary Pokémon coming, as its wings make a very distinctive popping sound as it flies. In addition to electrical moves like the dreaded Thunder, it also wields a vicious move called Drill Peck.
