[edit] Background

Main Article

Zapdos is the Legendary electric Bird of the Kanto region. Zapdos is said to nest inside thunderclouds, if it's stricken by a lighting bolt its power will increase.

[edit] SSB for 3DS

Zapdos appears in the background of the Prism Tower stage on the 3DS version of the game. It does not interfere with the fight in any way and is simply part of the background.

[edit] Effect

Once released, Zapdos will unleash a powerful electric shock, damaging all nearby fighters. Zapdos will vanish shortly afterwards.
