(Japanese: サ・ファイ・ザー Thu-Fi-Zer) was the result of a Team Rocket experiment created by fusing the three legendary birdsArticuno, Zapdos, and Moltres—in the Pokémon Adventures manga


As an Articuno

Prior to the creation of Thu-Fi-Zer, Team Rocket stole an Eevee in order to research the Eeveelutions, Vaporeon, Jolteon, and Flareon, which was a mere beta-test for this creature.

As a Zapdos

Red's Gym Badges triggered a fusion machine and created this Pokémon. Red tried battling Thu-Fi-Zer with his Ivysaur but the fused trio sent him flying. Sabrina commanded it to attack Red as he served their purpose. Before it can do so, Blue interferes with Charizard only for Blue to meet the same fate as Red. Red came up with a plan to defeat Thu-Fi-Zer which involves Green's Clefy to evolve into a Clefable. He does so with the use of a Moon Stone. After evolving, Clefy attacks Thu-Fi-Zer with Metronome which resulted in Clefy using Comet Punch, Hyper Beam and Fury Attack. Despite the damage that Thu-Fi-Zer took, it became barely hurt and was able to send Red, Blue, and Green flying out of the Silph Co. building. 

As a Moltres

It was about to destroy Saffron City until Red, Blue, and Green survived the fall with Saur's vine created web. Using their starter Pokémon, they battled with the beast and attacked with SolarBeam, Flamethrower and Hydro Pump, respectively. The battle caused Saur to evolve into a Venusaur which caused the starters's attacks to become stronger. After a long battle, they managed to defeat Thu-Fi-Zer. After being defeated, the three legendary birds separated to their original forms and left.

Personality and characteristics

Thu-Fi-Zer was proven to be unstoppable as it has the powers of the three legendary birds combined. This was proven as it was able to easily knock back Red's Ivysaur without suffering a scratch. Even Sabrina commented on how she wanted its power.

  • In the English language version of Pokémon Adventures, it does not have an official name. However, Coronis of coined the term Zapmolcuno, a portmanteau of the legendary birds' names; this reflects its Japanese name, サ・ファイ・ザー Thu-Fi-Zer, a combination of the legendary birds' Japanese names Thunder, Fire, and Freezer.
