How rare is a Galarian Zapdos in Pokémon Go?


The most challenging birds to see and catch are the Galarian Legendary birds, which include the Galarian Zapdos. The Galarian Zapdos is rare because it has a 0.3% base catch rate and a 90% flee rate.

You can increase your chances of catching it by using a Razz Berry, making curveball throws, or using the circle lock technique, making sure that you have an excellent throw.

But, because the Galarian Zapdos’ catch rate is low, it is advised that you use a Master Ball to catch it.

To get the Galarian Zapdos to spawn, you will need to activate the Daily Adventure Incense. In order to activate it, you need to attach a Pokémon GO Lure Module to a Gym or a Poke Stop in windy weather.

This is because it is a Flying-type Pokémon, and it aligns with windy weather.

After activating the Daily Adventure Incense, you will then need to keep walking all around the attached Poke Stop or the Gym.

Once you spawn the Galarian Zapdos, you can catch it and add it to your record 💃.

Can the Galarian Zapdos spawn with regular Incense?

The Galarian Zapdos can be spawned by Incense, but only by Daily Adventure Incense, not by regular Incense. The Galarian Zapdos, being a Legendary bird, has a 0.1% chance for spawning, meaning the more you spawn, the higher your chances of seeing and maybe catching it.

This is why only the Daily Adventure Incense can be able to spawn the Galarian Zapdos.

The Daily Adventure Incense feature can only be used for 15 minutes per day but sometimes goes up to 45 minutes.

If luck is on your side, you will see the Galarian Zapdos within the stipulated 15-minute window, or you will wait till the next day and attempt to catch it 😟.
