Zapdos

Zapdos – Lightning – HP110
Basic Pokemon

[L] Assault Thunder: 10+ damage. If this Pokemon became your Active Pokemon this turn, this attack does 70 more damage. This attack’s damage isn’t affected by Weakness.

Weakness: Lightning (x2)
Resistance: Fighting (-20)
Retreat: 2

Zapdos has been winning a LOT over in Japan.  I don’t know if it will have the same success here post Team Up, but here’s a list I’m going to start with:

So I’m going with the Shedinja version in an attempt to recycle Zapdos over and over so you can potentially get off 7 or 8 attacks (maybe more?).  Not sure exactly how well this will work, but this is just theorymon right now.

If you want to try to sell me on a card over something in the list above, feel free to make an argument in the comments below!

  1. This makes me want to play it with Zeraora and Pikachu and Zekrom. But for budget, I feel like it might play well with Raichu BUS

  2. And I’ve already thought of a couple of changes. Probably + 2 Tapu Koko SM 30 and -2 Shrine. Gotta have a free retreater. I hate cutting the Shrines, but that’s the only place I can see where a cut can be made.

    And I know everyone is playing this with Jirachi, but I really think Jirachi is being overrated. But we’ll see!
