Side Game Locations

The side game locations seem kinda odd. Could anybody fix it?

worthy trivia?

"up to generation IV, Zapdos is the only dual-type pokémonthat learns thunder via level-up." --Trulyelse 07:31, 11 August 2010 (UTC)

Because of the very small amount of Pokémon that learn Thunder by level up..... no. —darklordtrom 23:49, 12 August 2010 (UTC)

Nazca Lines

Thiss may be coincidence and I'm not sure if it's just me... Zapdos seems to resemble the hummingbird in the Nazca lines. Is this worthy trivia? EpicShadow 18:06, 10 September 2010 (UTC)

Tengu

Zapdos' very long beak resembles the very long nose of a tengu, a japanese legendary creature with avian characteristics.Robbie (talk) 14:51, 3 March 2016 (UTC)

Just simply having a long beak isn't enough to make the connection.--ForceFire 02:39, 4 March 2016 (UTC)
Look at side views, Zapdos's upper beak looks very much like a nose. It also has menacing looking eyes which are how tengu are often depicted having.Robbie (talk) 16:07, 4 March 2016 (UTC)
Zapdo's beak looks like Shiftry's nose, a confirmed tengu pokemon.

Zapdo's face also looks like a tengu mask.

Tengu have avian characteristics and Shifty doesn't. That means there would have to have been a tengu bird pokemon from a previous generation.Robbie (talk) 19:07, 21 March 2016 (UTC)

How is this possible in Generation I? The edit history indicates that this is due to a transfer involving Stadium, but if it involves another game, that should be mentioned with how it would only require 2. Andy Snype (talk) 02:19, 17 August 2019 (UTC)
