Anyone who plays Pokemon competitively knows that Zapdos is better than Moltres and Articuno. Would you agree?


Legendary birds (Japanese: でんせつのとり Legendary birds) is a collective term used to refer to the trio of Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres. They are also known as the winged mirages (Japanese: まぼろしのつばさ phantom wings).

Being the first Legendary trio, they set the standards for future trios; that is, they all share similar attributes and—in the case of most of the future trios—are considered equal among themselves.

In the anime, Professor Oak states that Articuno and Moltres combined powers of ice and fire are the source and cradle of the oceans, and that Zapdos' electric energy creates the currents and streams, which is why the three ancient creatures are closely bound to the guardian of the ocean, Lugia.

Base stat comparison


The strongest out of the 3 legendary birds is Zapdos for the fact that electric types are better to face flying bird types. Although Articuno and Moltres have distinctive abilities but the core is still flying. Articuno is ice/water/flying and Moltres is fire/flying and Zapdos is electric/flying.

We all know that electric Pokémon are better to attack flying Pokémon and since both Articuno and Moltres are at the core flying type Zapdos has a distinctive advantage over the other two.

Articuno would only win if Zapdos was to take down Moltres first then Articuno uses icebeam while Zapdos is basking in victory.

Ice type is weak in Electric type
Fire type Weak to Ice type
Electric is stronger than Fire type!

Therefore Electric type Pokemon is the strongest where Zapdos is an electric type legendary Pokemon.

Disclaimer: Although we proved that Zapdos was the strongest among the legendary flying type Pokemon still, in winning a gym battle it will depends on the Pokemon trainer's ability and strategy.
