You can take as long as you like getting ready for your first battle with a legendary bird. A good place to be would be around level 18. Take a few apples, one or two oran berries, a max elixir, and around three reviver seeds.

You need to rescue Shiftry.

Boss battle: Zapdos[edit]

Be prepared for a hard battle if you or your partner are water types. Bringing along an electric or ground type Pokémon is recommended if you want a team member that will have an easier time enduring Zapdos’ attacks. Even though Zapdos is an electric Pokémon don’t use ground attacks. His added flying element will nullify them.

An easy way to defeat him is to lower his stats, and then keep him motionless by throwing sleep seeds or stun seeds at him. Having a magnemite will help, because he can take all the damage while you throw gravelrocks from a distance, and even if your magnemite is defeated, he will never leave the team.

  • One good strategy against Zapdos is to recruit an Elektrike and have him absorb all the attacks as a decoy as the rest of your rescue team attacks him.
