Ever since April Fools’ Day this year, The Pokémon Company has been showing a lot of support for the legend-worthy HM mule, Bidoof, who made its debut in Generation 4. Bidoof has accompanied many a trainer through Sinnoh, using helpful moves to help players navigate the overworld.
In a tweet, The Pokémon Company announced that as of this year, July 1 will now officially be Bidoof Day. Bidoof Day will be dedicated to all kinds of “Bidoofery”, and fans are encouraged to stay tuned for excellent beaver content.
This news has been gnawing at us for a while…
July 1 is now officially Bidoof Day!
Join us this Thursday for a day of Bidoofery, and stay tuned to our social channels all week to find out the many ways you can celebrate Bidoof with us. #BidoofDay pic.twitter.com/oRJtSMvTx7

Other games like Pokémon GO have been celebrating in their own way, with things like the Bidoof Breakout Event happening from June 25 to July 1, 2021. Players will be able to encounter Bidoof and its evolution Bibarel that have special moves, such as Shadow Ball, Thunderbolt, or Ice Beam.

This announcement is very well-placed, ahead of the release of Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, which have been promised to be faithful remakes of the original Generation 4 games which first released in North America in 2007. Persons who remember that time fondly have been looking to recpature their nostalgia, by watching the anime and even re-buying older games they may have sold.
