Niantic has confirmed that Shiny Bidoofs can now be found in Pokemon Go, at least until July 1.
This was revealed as part of the launch of the new Bidoof event, which includes several running rewards.
A message from the PoGo team reveals: “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! Our preliminary research suggests that the rate at which Bidoof will be appearing in the wild will increase over the course of the event.
“On certain days of the event, Bidoof you encounter will know attacks that they normally cannot learn. On Thursday, July 1, 2021, from 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. local time, you can use a Charged TM to teach Bidoof any of these attacks.
“After the event, you can use an Elite Charged TM to do the same. During each of the times listed below, you can encounter Bidoof that know the following attacks.”
But while many of these new rewards are now active and Shiny Bidoofs can be found in Pokemon Go, more is being planned.
Niantic has teased that they will be launching something new on Monday, June 28, as part of the current Bidoof event.
“Keep an eye out for more details on what’s to come Bidoof-wise on Monday, June 28, 2021! Ready or not, the Bidoofs are coming. It’s an inevitable fact—an indomitable truth, even—and we must prepare. Let’s GO!”
We already know that new bonuses are being planned for this week that will increase 4× Catch XP, but this isn’t scheduled to happen until Tuesday, June 29, 2021.
There will also be a change in movesets, with Ice Beam becoming available on Tuesday.
So until Niantic makes its announcement on Monday, we won’t know exactly what is being planned.
Trainers looking out for Shiny Bidoofs have not been given any hints on how to increase their chances at an encounter.
However, they have been informed that Shadow Bidoofs can be unlocked by taking on Team Rocket Grunts.
We also know that there is a big incentive to evolve your Bidoofs this week as part of the new Pokemon Go event.
Not only will you unlock a new shiny if you have found the special Bidoof variant, but evolving Bidoof anytime during the event will unlock a Bibarel that knows Hyper Beam.
Gamers should also know that they can also unlock Bidoof Gift stickers by spinning PokéStops and opening Gifts during the timed event.
