[Update Thu 1st Jul, 2021 15:00 BST: The Pokémon Twitter account had another Bidoof surprise for us this morning. This important YouTube announcement could change the face of Pokémon games forever.]
Finally, The Pokémon Company is giving the best lil guy in Pokémon his dues: July 1st is Bidoof Day, according to the official Pokémon Twitter account.
"Join us this Thursday for a day of Bidoofery," reads the tweet — but what exactly is "bidoofery"? We'll tell you what we've seen so far:
- Pokémon GO had a Bidoof-themed event, including new Shiny Bidoof (ends today)
- Bidoof's Big Day is an episode of the anime that's centred on, you guessed it, Bidoof (available until 2nd July)
- Pokémon Masters has a Bidoof Day bonus of free gems
- A Bidoofy bonus for Pokémon Trading Card Game Online gives players Bidoof card sleeves, deck box, and coin
- A mystery "Bidoof surprise" on Twitch
- Whatever this is
Happy Bidoof Day, everyone!
