After you heal and save, use Fly to go to the Rock Tunnel Pokecenter, and then head north on the path to the water and Surf south to the shoreline by the Power Plant.  When you hop onto the shore you will be attacked by a trainer.

Pokemaniac Mark has a Level 29 Rhyhorn worth 838 XP, and a Levle 29 Lickitung worth 789 XP and $1392.

Inside the Power Plant you will find a treasure ball with a Max Potion on the path.  Shortly after that you should pull a Magnemite -- and as we do not have one of these, you should capture it!  As you work your way along the path you will pull a Magneton as well, so capture that!

In the corner down the center hall is an Electrode pretending to be a treasure ball - capture him!

In the far southeast corner is a treasure ball with TM25, Thunder, in it.  Be sure to grab that. In the northeast corner is a Thunder Stone that you will want to grab, and that is on the way to the Legendary Bird Pokemon Zapdos anyway!

-- Capturing Zapdos --

Make sure that you save before you try to do this capture!

The previous advice from the other two holds true here -- it is almost all luck, but do what you can to increase the odds in your favor, and then just start tossing balls until he is caught!  I will say though that of the three, Zapdos has to be the easiest to catch!  I got him in three throws, which is either amazing improbably luck, or he is just easier to catch...  The only trouble I had with him was getting his health down, because of his infuriating Protect ability.

Watch the video for this section, it shows the entire engagement from start to finish: 3 Ultra Balls, three minutes and thirty-five seconds... Priceless.
