Pikachu is definitely the more adorable Electric-type creature in Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu and Eevee. But if you're after power and fighting strength, then you really can't go wrong with the legendary Zapdos. In this Pokemon Let's Go Zapdos guide, we'll be walking you through how to find Zapdos in Pokemon Let's Go as easily as possible.
Where to Find Zapdos in Pokemon Let's Go
For those not in the know, Zapdos is one of the four legendary Pokemon that appear in Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee. You can find Zapdos at level 50, and the electric-type bird Pokemon has Drill Peck and Thunderbolt as their main two forms of attack.
To find Zapdos, you’ll want to firstly head to the northern section of Route 10, above the sole Poke Center in the area. Make your way over to the small river, and use Sea Skim to surf down south.
You only need to go a short ways south before you can hop onto dry land, and find the doors of the Power Plant dead ahead. Within the Power Plant itself, you’ll find a ton of Voltorbs, Electrodes, and Magnetons. Your aim here is to work your way to the back left corner of the Power Plant, where you’ll find Zapdos in a wide open area.
When you engage Zapdos, you’ve got 5 minutes to defeat the legendary Pokemon in combat, before you can try and capture it with a Poke Ball. Pikachu’s electric attacks can chip away at Zapdos’ health, as can any water-type Pokemon you’ve got in your party.
After the battle, the 5 minute timer will vanish, and you’ve got all the time in the world to catch Zapdos. We hope you’ve brought some Great/Ultra Balls and Berries with you though, because it’s a tough creature to pin down.
