From Dragon Quest Wiki

Zapmeister is a recurring trait in the Monsters series that increases the power of the Zap family of spells and other lightning-themed abilities while also cutting the MP cost of said techniques considerably. The exact power increase varies between games and it should be noted that Zapmeister does not penetrate an enemy's elemental resistance—that is reserved for the Crafty Zapper and Ultra Crafty Zapper traits.
