Answered Feb 19, 2012by Shining Yin edited Nov 27, 2020by Giga~Blade X My predicted Move set for Zap dos once it goes OF(If it does): Item really varies on what you prefer, run Life Orb with Roost, and Choice Specs with All-Out Offense Variant.
I have to admit, I feel strange passing up Air Cutter, Heat Wave, and Tailwind. However, your move pool becomes limited, so I put in EVs in Attack to allow for Drill Peck.
Drill Peck thankfully gets STAB and can hit any foe in a Triple Battle. Light Screen provides team support, and makes me feel weird about using a Defense lowering nature.
So the other moves are pretty predictable, Thunderbolt for STAB, you could go Thunder, but I think Thunderbolt is better for the accuracy, Heat Wave covers your Ice weakness better than Ancient Power, Ancient Power is there for that nice boost in all your stats if you get lucky, if you don’t want Drill Peck then go for Hidden Power because Zap dos is definitely a better Special Attacker, or Roost to heal up. The best moves for Zap dos are Thunder Shock and Drill Peck when attacking Pokémon in Gyms.
This move combination has the highest total DPS and is also the bestmoveset for PVP battles. Zapdos's strongest move set is Thunder Shock & Drill Peck, and it has a Max CP of 3,527.
