Catching Zapdos

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)
