Zapdos counters in Pokemon GO are kind of hard to come by. Just like its fellow legendary bird counterpart Articuno and being that Zapados is an electric-type Pokemon, it would be very wise to use a rock-type Pokemon to combat it.

However, unlike Articuno, Ice-type Pokemon are super effective against Zapdos. Rock and ice attacks are highly effective would deal an immense amount of damage.

Pokemon like Golem, Tyranitar, Weavile, Rhyperior, and Mewtwo are the perfect matchups to handle this raid. Those are only a few suggestions, but you may seriously want to consider having one or two of those Pokemon on your person if you plan on going up against this five-star raid boss. Be very careful because your room for error when matched up with this fierce bird is very slim. Zapdos is highly resistant to Ground, Fighting, Steel, Grass, Bug, and other Flying-type Pokemon.

Zapdos will be availible for capture in-game until Oct. 2. For now there is no distinct time for when Zapdos will appear for capture, so make sure to do your best to get out there and try to catch 'em today!
