PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Counter is the best Fast Move for Fighting-type attackers, and Galarian Zapdos makes good use of it.
  • Close Combat pairs well to fulfill a Fighting-type role.
  • Brave Bird lacks synergy unfortunately. 
  • Ancient Power is a poor move. 

PVE Overview

Galarian Zapdos features a very different profile from its Kantonian counterpart, offering Fighting-type damage instead of the iconic Electric-type coverage from Kanto Zapdos. With 252 ATK, this Pokemon boasts respectable damage output for attacking Raids and Gyms. Unfortunately, Close Combat is not the most efficient Charge Move for Fighting-types, and is the main reason why Galarian Zapdos doesn't rank at the top of Fighting-type attackers.

PvP Moveset Explanation

Counter + Close Combat and Brave Bird 

Galarian Zapdos has a very limited moveset with almost no flexibility in its moveset choices. Fortunately, Counter is one of the best Fast Moves in the game, offering a strong combination of damage output and energy generation, along with valuable coverage. 

Close Combat threatens massive damage, but applies a harsh self-debuff on the user, making it difficult to use. Brave Bird has the same profile, but costs slightly more energy and offers Flying-type coverage instead. Ancient Power is unfortunately a poor choice due to its pitiful damage output. It ties with Close Combat in terms of energy cost, making it unimpressive to use for baiting shields. 

PvP Rating Explanation

Great League: 3 / 5

Galarian Zapdos packs a devastating closing potential and a largely unresisted STAB combination. Thanks to Counter being an excellent Fast Attack, Galarian Zapdos has no issues farming down opponents to begin sweeping teams with Close Combat and Brave Bird. However, it is held back by its poor bulk and being a Fighting-type that struggles against the ever-present Walrein. The unreliability of its Brave Bird also restricts its Flying-type side, as Galarian Zapdos struggles to counter Grass- and Fighting-type Pokemon. It does have Ground-type resistance with Rock-type neutrality though, which helps it punish Galarian Stunfisk a bit better than other Fighting-type Pokemon.

Ultra League: 3 / 5

Its bulk is better and can reach its Charged Attacks a bit more consistently. For example, it no longer gets oneshot by Trevenant's Shadow Ball after a little Shadow Claw chip. Its closing potential is still terrifying and can definitely take over games, although its consistency is still shaky. Galarian Zapdos also still runs into issues with Walrein in this league, and Nidoqueen, Talonflame, Cresselia, Tapu Fini and Giratina being common are still obstacles it needs to overcome.

Master League: 3.5 / 5

Very few Fighting-type Pokemon can match Galarian Zapdos's stats, so it towers against most of its direct competition. Its closing potential is still scary as ever and there's quite a few Fighting weak targets to prey on, while its deadly Brave Birds can send most of its potential counters reeling. With that said, being a Fighting-type Pokemon in Master League comes with a combination of weaknesses that is challenging to cover, which makes it hard to fit onto a team without stacking weaknesses in some way.
