For Pokémon GO users, July 1st has been designated as Bidoof Day by Niantic and The Pokémon Company. For the first time ever, the event will feature a Special Research narrative with choices that impact the story’s ending. Bidoof is a popular Normal-type Pokémon, and players who don’t have one will want to get one on Bidoof Day to take advantage of the higher spawn rate.
Pokémon GO keeps its followers amused with events and promotions on a daily basis, and the forthcoming Pokémon GO Fest has just received additional details. The event, which will take place on July 17th, is just the second of its type.
On July 18, all Legendary Pokémon will be accessible in raids. While Legendary Raids will not need users to acquire a paid Pokémon GO Fest ticket, they will be required to attend five-star raids at specific times to guarantee they capture the Pokémon they seek.
Legendary Pokémon will be accessible in four distinct time slots, according to Niantic, and will feature uncommon captures like Mewtwo, Articuno, Lugia, and others. Players will also be able to purchase a $5.00 Pokémon GO Fest ticket, which is a special pricing to commemorate the game’s fifth anniversary. Players may look forward to Shiny Corsola and Okinawan Shirt Pikachu later in July, in addition to Pokémon GO Fest and Bidoof Day, but the catches do have certain region-specific requirements.
The Pokémon Company teased “Bidoofery” and “mystery” in its announcement of the July 1 Bidoof Day on Twitter. The official Pokémon GO website is far less mysterious, outlining exactly what the unique event would entail.
Bidoof will be the sole Pokémon available to battle in one-star, three-star, and five-star Raid Battles, according to the site. Bidoof captured on Bidoof Day will have Superpower, and players will be able to utilize it “During the event, you’ll be able to use a Charged TM to teach Bidoof Ice Beam, Shadow Ball, or Thunderbolt.
After the event, you can teach Bidoof Ice Beam, Shadow Ball, Superpower, or Thunderbolt using an Elite Charged TM.” The features accessible during the Bidoof Breakout Event from June 25 to July 1 will also be available, implying a higher spawn rate for Bidoof in Pokémon GO and a better chance of catching its Shiny form.
The festivities for Pokémon GO’s Bidoof Day don’t stop there, as it’s been announced that the event will be the first to give players choices that can affect the story’s conclusion. “For special prizes, complete a free event-exclusive Special Research narrative,” Niantic writes.
“This will be the first Special Study in which you will make decisions that will impact the plot of the research as well as certain aspects of your event experience!” In addition to receiving an exclusive Bidoof Hat avatar item for completing the study, Pokémon GO users will get an exclusive Bidoof Hat avatar item for completing the research.
After stating that some of the safeguards put in place to combat the coronavirus epidemic will be removed, Pokémon GO came under fire. Last year, the game’s basic gameplay was overhauled, increasing the distance required to reach PokéStops and Gyms. Players would no longer need to congregate around real-world places, making the game more accessible to those playing at home. Following rumors that the game might be reverted to its pre-pandemic state, players are asking Pokémon GO to preserve these additions in the game.
