Zapdos takes Super Effective damage from ROCK and ICE type Movesets due to its dual ELECTRIC and type.
The best Pokemon to fight Zapdos is Golem with Rock Throw/ Stone Edge moveset.
Zapdos takes not very effective damage from GROUND type attacks!
The odds of capturing Zapdos are greatest while the target ring is at its smallest diameter. Scoring Great or Excellent Throws will increase your odds, and throwing Curveballs will improve them further. But work within your abilities—if you don’t think you can hit Excellent Curveballs reliably, go for easier throws instead of missing the target ring completely.
We Would highly recommend using the golden razz as the base catch rate is 3% (With Golden razz, catch rate is 5% + etc bonuses such as curveball)
