July 1st is Canada Day. And Bidoof is a beaver, so I guess that's why it's also Bidoof Day

Imagine the absolute mayhem that would happen if they decided to randomly add Bidoof and Bibarel to SwordShield today.

I wish I could get that shirt, it's so ridiculous it becomes genius

Because who needs Crab Thursdays anyway! sniff sob

Here's to renaming all my captured and kept Bidoof to "Biderp" in Pokemon Go.

(Or Peanut Butter if I find a shiny male. Brownie points if you get the reference!)

Bidoof is now Canada's national Pokemon. I approve.

@Tyranexx I don’t know PB has been getting his trunks handed to him by Badoof. You might want a cooler name.

Peanut Butter!! Now we need Rusty and Badoof day

Bidoof, Bidoof, Bidoof is on fire

Happy Bidoof day then??? I wish that T shirt was on sale in the early 1990's, would love to have wore that to a rave back then

All hail our beaver overlords please spare us fragile humans

It should be Krabby day #CrabNewsThursday.

@TheAwesomeBowser We don't need no water, let that poke-y-man burn

There has been an important development: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yiGEo1vpvpM

@Ryu_Niiyama Gotta root for the underdog! Besides, I'm also a fan of the actual substance. It's so complementary.

@Tyranexx ok favorite Peanut Butter brand? This may determine if we can remain friends or not. (Kidding, mostly)

@Ryu_Niiyama Jif or Crazy Richard's if I wanna dig deep enough for the latter lol. Though I'm usually not picky about the form.

Happy Bidoof Day and Happy Canada Day!

Raid Logging is now live in Pokémon Go | Dot Esports

Dot Esports 01 July, 2021 - 02:13am

Niantic has finally enabled Raid Logging in the most recent update for Pokémon Go.

This feature will be an internal method used to help Niantic improve the performance of raids by viewing submitted results. The setting itself will only record a limited amount of data, simply storing a single raid that is deleted after 24 hours.

This is a setting that players will need to enable if they want to share data with Niantic, and here is how you can do that. 

Once enabled, players can follow the same steps to upload automatically saved raid data to help Niantic improve future raids by showcasing issues they encountered when playing the game. Raid logs can be submitted even if players are unable to complete the Raid Battle and the logs can be submitted along with support tickets. 

Players can also skip raid rewards again with this update, so overall, Niantic focused a lot on raids with this version of the game. 

With 213 you can now skip the raid rewards again pic.twitter.com/qztldYqiRE

Players can use the same method to disable Raid Logging if you want to stop sharing data. Doing so will also delete any saved raid log data that hasn’t been uploaded.
