Bidoof – they’re lovable, have big teeth, and considered to be a god thanks to a meme. This Plump Mouse Pokémon has reached a new level of fame this year by getting its own day. The Pokémon Company announced that July 1st will be known as Bidoof Day and its 2021 edition is already packed with more Bidoof to max out your Pokémon storage. Here’s what to expect for the first Bidoof Day!

 

Pokémon GO

Continuing its Bidoof Breakout event, even more Bidoof bonuses are happening in Pokémon GO! This one-day event includes a Bidoof-themed Special Research, the Bidoof Cup in GO Battle League, and more. Full details can be read on our previous coverage of the announcement.

 

 

 

Pokémon Masters EX

First teased on Twitter, Bidoof will be visiting Pokémon Masters EX! They’re starring in a log-in bonus, giving players up to 1,200 Gems. Full details have been shared in a press release:

Celebrate Bidoof Day! To celebrate the Plump Mouse Pokémon, a log-in bonus will be available from June 30 at 11:00 p.m. Pacific Time until July 7 at 10:59 p.m. Pacific Time. Players that log-in to the game for three days throughout this period will be able to earn up to 1,200 Gems, enough to add up to four sync pairs to their teams. The amount of 400 Gems given per day was chosen as a tribute to Bidoof’s Pokédex number of 399.”

 

 

Pokémon Trading Card Game Online

Sure, Bidoof has made multiple appearances in the Pokémon TCG over the years. For Bidoof Day, however, their face will grace digital card sleeves, a deck box, and a coin in Pokémon Trading Card Game Online. These items will be available as a special log-in bonus from Thursday, July 1st at 12:01 a.m. PT, to Wednesday, July 7th at 11:59 p.m. PT.
