Bidoof will be breaking out, and Shiny Bidoof is coming—BIDOOF!

Trainers,

Bidoof are coming. We have no idea where they’re coming from or what their aim is, but during the Bidoof Breakout event starting Friday, June 25, 2021, Bidoof will be appearing more often in the wild, they might know attacks they can’t normally learn, and Shiny Bidoof will be making its Pokémon GO debut! How many Bidoof will you catch? When will it end? Read on for more details. Good luck—you’re going to need it.

Date + Time

Friday, June 25, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. to Thursday, July 1, 2021, at 8:00 p.m. local time

Features

  • Bidoof will be appearing more often in the wild, in raids, and in encounters after you complete event-exclusive Field Research! If you’re lucky, you might encounter a Shiny Bidoof!
