Why is Zapdos so Hard to Catch?
Zapdos is a foreign sounding word that should elicit curiosity from many who encounters it for the first time. Many will say it sounds like some sort of animal from another continent which may be half the truth of what it really is. For PokÃƒÆ’Ã‚©mon fans all over the world, they know exactly what it is.
Zapdos is one of the three legendary birds spoken of in the Kanto. It is portrayed as a large bird with spiky feathers sticking out in different directions, giving the illusion of electricity. It’s genderless and when it flaps it wings, it generates electricity which legends say creates thunderstorms.
Among the many PokÃƒÆ’Ã‚©mon monsters, the Zapdos along with Articuno and Moltres form the first legendary birds of the hit series. They are also referred to as winged mirages as they seem to appear out of nowhere and vanish just as quickly without a trace. Many hunters covet to have them under their control as they form a very formidable trio that can beat a lot of PokÃƒÆ’Ã‚©mon monsters.
The Zapdos is so elusive and hard to catch because no one seems to know where to find it. Some sightings report they usually appear just before a thunderstorm leading to the belief that they reside in thunder clouds surrounded by electrical storms. In addition, there are only very few PokÃƒÆ’Ã‚©mon’s who can go head to head with it.
Capturing a Zapdos usually requires more than just one monster with ability. Hunters who have been successful or lucky enough to catch one used a variety of attacks using several monsters’ abilities. Zapdos don’t like being captive and will fight to the end if need be. The worst encounter for hunters on their trail is to find it alongside the other legendary birds which make it thrice harder to catch.
