Sample Static Zapdos EV Spread

Since the Kanto bird trio are getting distribution events around the world now and access to their hidden ability (zapdos= Static, moltres= Flame Body, articuno= Snow Cloak), I thought I post an EV Spread I created last week. This by no means perfect and is meant to mainly show how I thought Static Zapdos could be used.

zapdos
Zapdos @ Lum Berry
Ability: Static
EVs: 252 HP / 96 Def / 72 SpA / 4 SpD / 84 Spe
IVs: 0 Atk / 30 Def / 30 SpA
Modest Nature
 Thunderbolt
 Protect
 Hidden Power [Water]
 Tailwind
 
Other Options: Roar, Roost, Heat Wave, Light Screen

This Zapdos was built mainly to use HP Water to OHKO Groudon in the Rain and have some bulk as well. The Lum Berry is so you can wake up immediately from a Dark Void from Smeargle and use Tailwind.
