Zapdos seems like it has 4 wings in it's X/Y model. The black ones on the back are separate, they're not connected at all to the yellow wings. I saw this in the Pokedex and wonder if It's true.

omg? again

Have no clue why this is flagged.

I'm on my phone so I can't quote, but in the Biology section of this link, it states the black wing looking things on Zapdos are simply a layer of black feathers, and therefore it only had two wings like most of its other previous designs.

Hope I helped. :)

Zapdos seems to have 4 wings that are connected to 2 muscles.

enter image description here

As you can see, the black wings arent connected to the yellow wings, but move with the same motion, that means Zapdos has 2 pairs of wings and 1 pair of muscles to operate said wings.

Nice source XD
I actually think that those might be shadows of the wings, but I'm with you on this one.
