Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Thunder Shock has slightly more DPS than Charge Beam

  • Thunderbolt is more flexible and consistently outperforms Zap Cannon in relevant match-ups.

  • Thunder's low power renders it the worst charge move.

Rating Explanation

Of the initial 4 legendary species released in Pokemon GO, Zapdos was arguably the best. With the introduction of Raikou, Zapdos is no longer the Electric king. Raikou possesses better bulk and more powerful moves that overcome Zapdos’s slight Atk advantage. By no means is Zapdos bad; players just have a better option now.

Zapdos’s Flying typing gives it an advantage in a small subset of matchups, but the extra weaknesses, particularly to Ice, can render the dual typing more of a curse than a blessing.
