Zapdos' Thunder

The user stops until a target is in the field. It hits all targets in the field and splits the damage against all of them.
This attack will damage even Ground-types. Does not work against Zapdos.

This attack is used by the Zapdos in Route 17.

As the description implies, Zapdos will stop in place, and then use Zapdos' Thunder whenever there is a target on screen. Even though this move is classified as an Electric type move, it can still effect Pokemon that are Ground type.

A Ditto that has transformed into Boss Zapdos is unable to make use of the move and cannot target Zapdos. However, if you use your own Zapdos, it can still be damaged by Zapdos' Thunder and Zapdos' Drill Peck.
