Pokemon is ready to take on the year with some of its biggest projects yet. In just a few weeks, the franchise will break the mold when it steps out with Pokemon Legends: Arceus, and the game will even get a special anime of its own. And later today, Pokemon will be putting out a little anime all about Bidoof.
And yes, you did read that right. Bidoof is living his best at the moment, and that is all thanks to fans. The beloved beaver is getting an anime special of his own, and the original piece will explore Bidoof’s last stand.

The update came straight from The Pokemon Company as the brand confirmed its plans to hype Bidoof. At 9:00 PM EST, fans can head over to the company’s Youtube page to watch Bidoof’s Big Stand. At this point, fans know little about the special, but they do know it will focus on its titular hero. The project will follow Bidoof as he tries to find his niche in the world, but he’ll have more trouble doing so than he expected. So if you’d like you can find the episode’s synopsis below:
“A bumbling Bidoof with a tendency to bite off more than it can chew finds itself between a rock and a hard place as it embarks on a journey to find its place in the world.”
This special will kick off 2022 in a big way, and of course, Bidoof is enjoying the ride. There is nothing else for the Pokemon to do than embrace his Internet fame at this point. After all, Bidoof has become an almost mascot for the Pokemon fandom online, and his popularity has surged accordingly. So if Bidoof gets his own marketing push this year, well – you shouldn’t be all that surprised!
