The Pokémon franchise has had many iconic mascots since its release, which have become both an internet phenomenon and a staple for many of its games. Pikachu, Eevee, and Charizard are just a few of this group, however, a singular Pokemon has transcended both memes and media since its debut in Gen Four.
We're of course talking about Bidoof, the little Plump Mouse Pokemon with nerves of steel, being more nimble and active than it looks. Bidoof has become such a level sensation, it has gone from just a Pokemon to being considered a god-like Arceus for many players.

To celebrate this, Niantic has announced a new event where for the first time, Bidoof will be the protagonist appearing massively for an entire week, so you better get ready for this Bidoof breakout.

As for the Pokémon featured, of course, it will only be Bidoof. The Pokemon Plump Mouse will appear more often in the wild, in raids, and in encounters once you complete the event-exclusive Field Research.
According to the event details, the speed at which Bidoof spawns in the wild will increase during the event, so don't be scared if your map is completely covered in Bidoof all 473ur you. And if you're lucky enough, you might even encounter a Shiny Bidoof.
During certain days of the event, special Bidouins will begin to appear with moves that these Pokémon cannot normally learn. Check out those dates below:
- June 25-26: Bal des Ombres
- June 27-28: Thunderbolt
- June 29-30: Ice Beam
Then on July 1, players can use a charged TM to teach Bidoof any of these attacks. And once the event is over, you can use an Elite Charged TM to do the same. To top it off, if you evolve Bidoof anytime during the event, you'll get a Bibarel with the Hyper Beam move.
