So I want to know if I should run a timid or bold zapdos for my team. The moveset is:
1. Volt switch
2. Heat wave
3. Hidden power ice
4. Roost

Here's the rest of my team if that would help to answer this question:
Garchomp (Physical sweeper)
Suicune (Tank)
Excadrill (Hazard setter and rapid spinner)
Volcarona (Late game special sweeper)
Espeon (Status reflector and special sweeper)

Have you copied the moveset from here: https://www.smogon.com/dex/bw/pokemon/zapdos/
What generation and format are you using.
It's gen 6 OU, and no I didn't copy the moveset from that page but I guess a lot of people use a similar set.

I would definitely go with Timid nature for Zapdos. 4 HP/ 252 SpA/ 252 Spe. with Life Orb. If you want to use it as Revenge Killer then I would go with Choice Specs. Zapdos with 252 Spe + Timid Nature has 328 Speed and 349 Sp.Attack. Or, you could use Modest nature with which 383 Sp. Attack. Zapdos with your moveset should be purely used for sweeping, not taking hits.
Hope this helps!
