When is Bidoof day?

Bidoof Day is July 1, but fortunately many of the activities, products, and events taking place will allow you to celebrate over the span of several days—even weeks! pokemon.comCelebrate Bidoof Day on July 1 with Activities, Rewards, and More

It's that time again! With the final remnants of June 2021 slowly slipping into the past, July is looming large on the Pokemon Go stage, ready to take its time in the spotlight! So what does this month have in store? Well, it's honestly expected to be fairly straight-forward based on the official announcement, with normal events and recurring bonuses. This isn't to say that it's set to be a bad month overall, as we do have a few important dates on the calendar for some very... nice events.

So let's get to it and break down July 2021 in Pokemon Go!

Rufflet and its evolution are rare Pokemon, though not extremely useful. Aiming to catch it with Pinap berries is recommended, as this will help to avoid having to walk it in order to obtain its evolution, Braviary. Players will also be given a free Remote Raid Pass each week via the breakthrough. Could this be a standing trend moving forward? 

Raids Start: July 1, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. local time

Raids End: July 1, 2021, at 8:00 a.m. local time

...yes, seriously. Bidoof will be the featured Five Star raid boss for a few hours on July 1st during Bidoof Day.

Raids Start: July 1, at 8:00 p.m. local time

Raids End: July 16, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. local time

Raids Start: July 16, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. local time

Raids End: July 23, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. local time

We will also have a not-yet announced raid boss starting July 23. We will keep you all posted as soon as we know more!

Raids Start: July 1, 2021, at 8:00 p.m. local time

Raids End: July 16, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. local time.

Raids Start: July 16, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. local time.

Raids End: July 23, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. local time.

Raids Start: July 23, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. local time.

Raids End: August 6, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. local time.

Interestingly, we have no new Mega Evolutions announced for July 2021. This could just be because of the fact that Go Fest is the central concept of the month, but it does make one wonder if Niantic intends to take a mega-break.

While it's likely that this is not a complete list, Niantic has given us information on at least a few upcoming events:

Hard to imagine that it's been five years, but here we are! 

Complete up to 100 battles during the event and enjoy 3x stardust. It's a nice event, but we've seen it before.

Well here we are again, it's always such a pleasure!

Go Fest is, as always, the premier event of the year, and it's time for us to nab Meloetta, along-side many great Legendary Pokemon!

Pokémon GO Fest 2021 may be just around the corner, but that doesn’t mean you’ll have to wait to enjoy exciting events in July! Read on for what we have in store.

Double XP for Research Breakthroughs will also continue throughout this month as part of the Season of Discovery!

In addition, the following Mega-Evolved Pokémon will be appearing in Mega Raids.

GO Fest & More July 2021 Events Coming Soon to Pokémon GO

Bleeding Cool News 02 July, 2021 - 06:12am

July 2021 is GO Fest month in Pokémon GO, but that isn't all that's happening in Niantic's hit mobile game. Here is the first series of hints we've gotten about what is to come this month.

Niantic posted the following vague breakdown of July 2021's Pokémon GO content over on their official blog:

Pokémon GO's anniversary celebration: From Tuesday, July 6, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. to Thursday, July 15, 2021, at 8:00 p.m. local time, Pokémon GO will be celebrating its five-year anniversary! Stay tuned for more details in early July.

This ten-day event is the longest we've gotten since May's Luminous Legends X and Y events. While I believe all Pokémon GO trainers can agree that the build-up to GO Fest 2021 has been uneventful when compared to GO Fest 2020, perhaps Niantic has been saving that content for their fifth-anniversary event. It would certainly fit the event pattern that Pokémon GO has switched to since the introduction of Seasons, which has leaned more into long stretches of low-key events and off-time leading up to more major events.

GO Battle Night: On Sunday, July 11, 2021, from 6:00 p.m. to 11:59 p.m. local time, the second GO Battle Night of the season will be happening! Complete up to 100 battles, and receive three times the Stardust for winning battles, completing sets of battles, and ranking up in the GO Battle League.

Imagine the thumb callouses that 100 GO Battle League bouts would yield. Stay tuned for coverage of this event.

Pokémon GO Fest 2021: The largest event of the year is nearly here, but you still have time to buy your tickets! Pokémon GO Fest 2021 will take place on July 17 and 18, and each day will provide a unique experience. Trust us—this is an event you won't want to miss!

During GO Fest 2021, there will be a series of major Shiny releases on July 17th, a Special Research that will culminate in an encounter with Meloetta, and raid battles featuring every Legendary ever released in Pokémon GO on July 18th.

Pokemon GO Snapshot of Bidoof not working? Here's what you're missing

PiunikaWeb 02 July, 2021 - 05:05am

Bidoof is a special research questline released as part of the Bidoof Breakout event on Pokemon Go. During this event, you will be able to teach Bidoof a bunch of moves that it can’t normally use.

The event offers you a selection of paths unlike on previous research quests. Completing certain challenges within results in you receiving different rewards.

Unfortunately, the Bidoof Snapshot task is acting as a barrier to quest progression as Pokemon Go players report that it just fails to complete.

Complainants say that while they indeed are able to take a Snapshot of a Bidoof and save it, the completion of the task doesn’t register at all. Hence, they’re unable to claim the reward.

Thankfully, there are a couple of user-suggested workarounds that may help for now.

If the above workarounds turn out to be fruitless, then you may try re-enabling camera and storage permissions for Pokemon Go and try taking the Snapshot again as a last resort, just as Niantic support has suggested.

While an official acknowledgment is still awaited, we are hopeful that if there indeed is a bug, it will be addressed soon given the large number of complaints.

That said, the Bidoof Snapshot issue isn’t the only new problem on Pokemon Go as there are also several reports saying that they’re unable to find the shiny Bidoof at all even after hours of pursuit.

It’s unclear if this indeed is an issue. But considering that there are scattered user reports saying that they indeed managed to get hold of a shiny Bidoof, it is likely that the Pokemon is pretty darn rare and hence hard to catch.

Still, we will continue to keep an eye on both of the issues for further developments and will update this article accordingly so stay tuned to PiunikaWeb.

Simply love being surrounded by technology as it's a constant reminder of how far humans have advanced as a race. Every new development feels exciting, which I convey to others through writing. And after a day's work, gaming just feels therapeutic.

Pokemon Go Choose Bidoof Cup - Best Moveset and Best Team - Optic Flux

Optic Flux 02 July, 2021 - 01:02am

The Choose Bidoof Cup has just arrived in the Pokemon Go Battle League and you might be surprised, but the only Pokemon you can use is Bidoof. Battle League allows you to take part in fantastic PvP battles with other players worldwide, from the beginner’s Great League to the high-tier Master League.

Curious to find out more about the sneaky little ‘mon?

Here are the best moveset and team so that you’ll score a win.

Starting July 1, Bidoof will be available with the Superpower move, a sleek Fighting-type Charged Move that’s also one of Bidoof’s weaknesses. The move will grant you a huge shot at success!

Take Down has a higher energy gain that’ll allow you to build up that crushing Charged Move Superpower.

The Choose Bidoof Cup comes with a few rules as follows:

The Choose Bidoof Cup allows you to use only the same ‘mon, so there are a few things you should know before starting the competition.

First, it’s better if you get all your Bidoof close to the 500 CP limit. Stats are important, so don’t forget about that. For example, a Bidoof with high HP means it’ll be able to outlast one with a higher Attack.

Finally, the moveset is essential, as previously said. The Superpower will be your secret weapon!

Cute and adorable Bidoof might be one of the strangest ‘mon choices, but you’ll still get the best time ever, fighting together.

Pokémon GO Fest 2021 Will Feature Mix Of In-Person & Virtual Events

Screen Rant 01 July, 2021 - 07:43pm

In 2020, the traditionally free Pokémon GO Fest became a paid ticket event that players could enjoy over a weekend from their own homes. It included challenges to complete and rare Pokémon to catch, and enough fans found the ticket worth it to pony up the cash. The event was the highest single moneymaking opportunity for developer Niantic since Pokémon GO launched in 2016, which probably contributes to why they're going forward with a hybrid model that lets everyone participate even if they're not present at the physical events this time around.

Residents of more than twenty cities across Europe, the United States, and New Zealand will not have to worry about digital tickets, as they'll be able to attend a physical Pokémon GO Fest event. Niantic has revealed the full list of locations on their website, and it's reproduced below. In the US, it covers major metropolitan areas like New York, Seattle, and Austin among others. The massive list of locations is meant to stop fans from traveling too far outside their hometown, as Niantic is still trying to keep things safe for all its players. Anyone who wants to attend the event needs to preregister on Niantic's official website, as spots are also limited.

As the world continues to slowly get back to some version of normalcy, events like Pokémon GO Fest are great to see. Even if it's a limited event when compared to most years, those who are ready to venture out of doors can enjoy the feeling of a crowd again as they hunt down shiny creatures and take in the majesty of the great outdoors. With PAX West also confirmed to return later this year, fans of various conventions could be booking travel just like in the pre-pandemic era before they know it.

Pokémon Go is available now on iOS and Android.
