Pokemon Go is celebrating the series’ most meme-worthy monster, Bidoof, with its own holiday. Bidoof Day will feature an incredible XP bonus, as well as a chance for players to score a Shiny, and more.

With Go Fest on the horizon, Niantic is taking a look back at some of the series’ most popular monsters. Closing out June, the mobile title will honor Sinnoh’s favorite beaver ‘mon with the Bidoof Breakout celebration on the 25th.

The fun will not end there as the Gen IV Pokemon will also kick off July with Bidoof Day. The hilariously unique event will feature a special version of the Normal-type that can learn several powerful TMs. Here is everything you need to know.

Pokemon Go Bidoof Day start date & time

Bidoof Day officially kicks off on Thursday, July 1, 2021. The special 10-hour celebration will run from 10:00 AM until 8:00 PM local time. Those that can’t get enough of the Sinnoh ‘mon should also tune in to the Breakout Event which kicks off on June 25.

While the limited-time celebration is only for a few hours, the entire game will be taken over by the Diamond & Pearl character. From wild spawns to Team Rocket, players will have plenty of opportunities to catch a Shiny version and evolve it into a Bibarel.
