An event celebrating Bidoof Day is coming to Pokémon GO.
On the Pokémon GO blog, it was announced that an event celebrating Bidoof Day will be taking place. The Bidoof Breakout event will take place on July 1st. During this event, Bidoof will appear in the wild at an incredibly high rate. Bidoof will be the only Pokémon to challenge in one-star, three-star, and five-star Raid Battles, with there being a chance to run into a Shiny Bidoof. Mega Raids will not be available during the event. Bidoof caught during the event will know Superpower, and can learn Ice Beam, Shadow Ball, or Thunderbolt from a Charged TM both during and after the event.
The Biddof Cup will be available in the GO Battle League throughout the Bidoof Breakout event. Only Bidoof will be eligible in this cup, with only teams of Bidoof being allowed. Players will be able to complete an event-exclusive Special Research story for special rewards. This will be the first Special Research in which the choices made by the player will affect the research's story and some parts of the event experience. Completing the Special Research will reward players with the Bidoof Hat avatar item. Team GO Rocket Grunts will use Shadow Bidoof on their teams more often during the event.
The Bidoof Breakout event will not be the only Pokémon GO event this week. July's Community Day, featuring Tepig, will take place on July 3rd. During the event, Tepig will show up in the wild more often, with there being a chance to run into a Shiny one. Those who evolve Pignite (Tepig's evolution) during the Community Day will get an Emboar that knows the Charged Attack Blast Burn. There will also be an event-exclusive Special Research story.
Pokémon GO is available now for mobile devices.
