I guess I should be paying more attention to the Pokemon Go news. It says right in the newsfeed that you get a chance to catch Zapdos for finishing up field research quests. Somehow, it still took me by surprise when it appeared.
Not a bad surprise, but it did take just about every Ultra Ball I owned to finally catch it! I’m not a raider at all, so I’ve not really had a chance to catch cool Pokemon like this. It was a really awesome way to start the week in Pokemon Go. 🙂
