It helps if you go as a pokemon that's at least at a higher level than Zapdos. Another useful trick would be holding the Friend Bow when you defeat it atop Mt. Thunder.
After that, it's just random chance whether or not it decides to join your team. At the midpoint, save at the statue -- if it doesn't join, just turn the game off and try again.

What I did is I just went up to Mt. Thunder peak and I defeated him. You don't need a friend bow. All you need is LEGENDARY ISLAND friend area!

I'm sorry but both you guys are wrong. All you have to do is have a one star sized one Pokemon team to clime Mt. Thunder and LEGENDARY ISLAND is obtained by recruiting Zapdos after doing this. Note that Zapdos has a 30% recruit chance. To raise it get a friend bow which add 10% or/and a Pokemon whose level is 90 or above which add 24% chance. Do both and all together your total is a 64% recruit chance of getting it. Hope it helps.

Hint: Moltres and Ardecono also live in Legendary Island and also have a 30% of being recruited.

He is right. To boost the recruit rate, give zapdoes a yellow gummi by throwing it at him, give moltres a red gummi, and give articuno a blue gummi(i might be wrong about blue gummi).
