UU Special Sweepers: Zapdos or Zoroark?

0 votes

Yesh, I will be making another UU team soon, and on my last one I had like 1 special attacker. I'm going to level it up this time. I've narrowed it down to 2 pokemon for the job. The Thunder Bird, Zapdos. Or Night Fury Zoroark. Please provide solid answers, oh and if you could please give me a set!
Thanks!

PS. I am starting with these two. Oh and please, solid answers!

Please unflag this. This isn't an in-game opinion question. Both these pokemon are special attackers
It follows the rules? Who flagged.
I have not flagged as i am  going to answer but i suspect the only reason is that your team is not there, we need the rest of your team unless your starting with these two.
Please edit this in so i can answer
I'm starting with these two.

ZAPDOS

The Thunder Bird has great power. Good typing, powerful Sp. Atk and Spd are all in its favor. It can run great coverage sets, and has access to reliable healing with Roost.

Zapdos @ Leftovers
Nature: Timid
EVs: 252 Sp. Atk, 252 Spd, 4 HP
Moves: Thunderbolt, Heat Wave, HP Grass, Roost

ZORUARK

The Night Fury can disguise itself, and when used correctly can be deadly. With its powerful move, Night Daze, and its awesome special effect it can deal out lots of damage.
Zoruark
Suggested Nature: Illusion
Suggested item: Focus Sash
EVs: 252 Sp. Atk, 252 Spd, 4HP

Night Daze
Nasty Plot
Counter
Flamethrower/Taunt

DT's set.

I would say Zapdos Over zoroark and Zapdos has a bigger base stat.Its special attack stat is just 5 pints ahead of zoroark.So ZAPDOS!!

recommended moveset for zapdos:

Here is my Current Zapdos Moveset on my UU Team:

Zapdos@ Choice Specs

Trait: Pressure

EVs: 4 HP, 252 Sp. Attack, 252 Speed

Timid Nature:(-Attack, +Speed)

U-Turn
Thunderbolt
Heat Wave
Hidden Power [Ice]

Thanks Darkgoku!
I do have a fault with the set. If you've given Zapdos all special attacking boosts, why U-Turn?
U-Turn makes Zapdos Scout, chosen over Volt Switch to strike opposing Lead Azelf and Mew.
