Shiny Bidoof Pokémon GO is a special version of everyone's favorite HM mule. If you're looking to get your hands on a Shiny Bidoof in Pokémon GO, you'll be disappointed.

Shiny Bidoof Pokémon GO: Is There One?

Bidoof is currently featured in the Sinnoh celebration for the Kanto Countdown event. From Jan. 12-19, Bidoof and other fourth generation Pokémon, will be appearing more frequently in the wild. Unfortunately, Buizel is the featured Shiny, so you won't be able to get a Shiny Bidoof just yet.

Shiny Bidoof data has been previously found by dataminers, but it's still not available in-game. It was expected that Shiny Bidoof will come for a Lunar New Year event last year, but we still don't have word of an official Shiny Bidoof release.

A Shiny Bidoof is slightly lighter than a normal one. If a normal Bidoof is a light brown, the Shiny one is more of a honey yellow-brown.

As for combat, Bidoof and its evolved form Bibarel don't fare very well. Bibarel is a Normal and Water type that has low CP, so it's only marginally usable in Great League. It doesn't have the same bulk as other Water types, and the awkward typing does more harm to Bibarel than good.
