The shiny Bidoof is a special type of Bidoof that Rusty spots and tries to capture shortly after defeating Bug Catcher.


The shiny Bidoof resembles an ordinary Bidoof, with the same bucked teeth and fur style. The major difference is its fur's color, which is a lighter brown compared to other Bidoofs.


The shiny Bidoof was hiding in the bushes on the route where Rusty challenged the Bug Catcher to a battle. After the Random Bystander fled, the shiny Bidoof jumped out at Rusty, exciting him. He tried to throw a Poké Ball to capture it, but instead ended up trapping himself in the Poké Ball. The shiny Bidoof fled as Rusty told Pikachu to get help.
