(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. To this end, Team Rocket captured Zapdos at the Power Plant, Moltres at the Indigo Plateau, and with its energy reserves spent on saving Red's Gyara, Articuno had also been captured. With Mewtwo on the run and its creator Blaine having defected, this experimental monstrosity was Team Rocket's trump card.

As a Zapdos

Red's Gym Badges triggered a fusion machine and created this Pokémon when Sabrina's Kadabra called upon Zapdos and Articuno to join Moltres in Sabrina's battle. Red tried battling Thu-Fi-Zer with his Ivysaur but the fused trio sent him flying out of the building with ease. Sabrina commanded it to attack Red as he served their purpose and could now die. Before it can do so, Blue interferes with Charizard only for the two to meet the same fate as Red and his Ivysaur. 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 he'd obtained on Mt. Moon. After evolving, Clefy attacks Thu-Fi-Zer with Metronome which resulted in Clefy using Quick Attack to close in on the legendary bird, and then Comet Punch, Hyper Beam and Fury Attack on it in succession. Despite the damage that Thu-Fi-Zer took from this barrage, it was barely hurt and was able to send Red, Blue, and Green flying out of the Silph Co. building with a Sky Attack

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 Vine Whip, Flamethrower and Hydro Pump, respectively. In the midst of combat, Red's call for it to attack caused Saur to evolve into a Venusaur, and now stronger than ever, it launched a SolarBeam and the three managed to defeat Thu-Fi-Zer. After being defeated, the three legendary birds separated to their original forms and left for the wild.

Later, it was revealed that all three birds had been recaught by Green on her journey to overcome her fear of birds.

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 Serebii.net 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.
