The go-to Pokemon for this battle will be Golem (rock/ground), Rhydon (rock/ground), and Piloswine (ice/ground). You'll want to have a powerful Golem or two (or three), and make sure that they have Rock Throw as their fast move, with either Rock Blast or Stone Edge as the charge move.

Even with this, you will need a group. Golem still remains as one of the most effective counters in the fight, so keep in mind to bring the Rock/Ground Type Pokemon along when you fight against Zapdos. If you're looking to get one step closer to completing your Pokedex then catching Zapdos will be of utmost importance. Do this all correctly and you'll beat Zapdos and get a chance to catch him. Nearly any area has Pokemon Go players who communicate when and where to hit Legendary Raids. Here's how to do that.
John Hanke revealed earlier today that Niantics has finished developing Moltres and Zapdos, and the two birds will be debuting on Pokemon Go later next week. Gym Raids are a new feature to the game, released in late July, that focus on forcing you to team up with partners to attack Gyms and take them down together. Once Zapdos starts the animation you want to start prepping for the curve ball, then toss right when it's coming to an end so that it hits just as the circle appears again.
