Pokemon GO: Bidoof event announced

Bidoof will be featuring with special research in Pokemon GO.

Pokemon GO is approaching arguably its busiest time of the year and is creating a special event for Bidoof.

According to its Pokedex entry, the Plump Mouse Pokemon constantly shaves logs with its front teeth in an attempt to whittle them down and tends to nest alongside water at any given opportunity.

That being said, Bidoof can be located almost anywhere in Pokemon GO and is, arguably, one of the most common Normal-type species in the wild – even before this event took place.

Despite being a fairly weak Pokemon, it will eventually evolve into Bibarel, a Beaver Pokemon that can learn Water-type moves, making it strong against Fire-type species.

This makes Bidoof’s highest form of evolution highly sufficient during Trainer Battles and can be a handy companion if given a high enough appraisal by your respective team leader.

That being said, let’s get stuck into what trainers can expect on Bidoof Day.
