Zapdos, the last of the legendary bird Pokémon, will be leaving Pokémon Go tomorrow, and it’s unknown when he will return.

The lightning bird was the last of the three legendary bird Pokémon to be released into legendary raids following Articuno and Moltres. Zapdos has been available since Aug. 7.

Currently, there are no plans for these three legendary Pokémon to return in the future, and only Lugia will remain as the sole legendary Pokémon in the game after Aug. 14 when Zapdos takes its final bow.

Players hoping to get Zapdos will need to act fast to add this creature to their Pokédex. Be sure to find a large group of players to tackle the legendary raids littered around the world and bring your most powerful Rock-type Pokémon to take Zapdos down.

Once players defeat a legendary Pokémon in a raid, however, the fight isn't over. Players will be given a small amount of Pokéballs in order to try to catch it. If you fail, you will need to try and beat the Pokémon again to have another chance.

Time is running out for any players who haven’t caught Zapdos yet.
