The capturing of the legendary Pokémon Zapdos was an event that occurred in the original run and anniversary run of Pokémon Red.

Pokémon RedEdit


In Generation 1, Red caught Zapdos (named AA-j) with the Master Ball at 10d 7h 49m. As Red's party was full, AA-j was sent to the PC. The subsequent attempts to withdraw AA-j directly led to Bloody Sunday.

Anniversary RedEdit

In a similar event, Abe caught Zapdos (named SSJ), again with the Master Ball. As Abe only had 5 Pokémon on his team at that point, SSJ joined the team immediately.
