Currently there is just one word on the minds of every Pokémon GO player in the world: Bidoof. July 1st is officially Bidoof Day in the hugely popular mobile game, but it’s already been a few days of celebration with this as the capper. The infinitely TM-able Pokémon has been in the spotlight lately, spawning more frequently in the wild and with special moves and other bonuses throughout. And now it all comes down to this final day, which will also bring its own Special Research quest for all players to complete. To help you along, here’s all of the Bidoof Day Research tasks and rewards in Pokémon GO.

Bidoof Special Research Tasks and Rewards

Below we’ve listed all of the tasks you need to complete to finish up the Bidoof research quest and gain all of the rewards. As with all Special Research, you can complete this at any time. However, given the tasks assigned you will certainly want to try to complete it before Bidoof Day is over. Follow along and try to get them all done while it’s easier, and you get 4x Catch XP along with a good chance to catch Shiny Bidoof.

This is the first Research where players can make a choice during it. However, this should not change the tasks you encounter. It only alters the story you receive from Professor Willow and a few items which we have marked in bold.

Note: All encounters can be shiny

Which to Choose – ‘Choose Bidoof’ or ‘Bidoof…?’, ‘Nerves of Steel’ or ‘Nests near Water’

As this is the very first time Pokémon GO players have to make choices as they make their way through the Special Research tasks, many are wondering which to choose between the four options. You get two choices total, between “Choose Bidoof” and “Bidoof…?” as well as “Nerves of Steel” or “Nests near Water”.

Thankfully the choices don’t alter things too much, just changing the flavor text you receive for the story and the less important items like berries. The tasks remain the same so all you need to do is look at the above and decide which is better for you. So if you’re wondering which to choose, just go with the one that gives you the items you prefer as listed above.

And that’s all of the Bidoof Day Research tasks and rewards in Pokémon GO, along with which choices to make along the way. This will conclude the Bidoof themed celebrations, but July 2021 has a lot more ahead for players. Watch for our upcoming Community Day and GO Fest guides for more help.
