Bidoof (Japanese: ビッパ Bippa) is a non-player character in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time, Darkness, and Sky. He is a member of Wigglytuff's Guild. He stars in his own special episode in Explorers of Sky, entitled Bidoof's Wish.

Background

201 Spoiler warning: this article may contain major plot or ending details. 201

Bidoof lived with his mother, a Bibarel, and his two siblings in a dam before going to train at the guild. He aspired to be the best explorer ever, so he left his hometown to be an apprentice at the Guild. Bidoof was the newest member of the Guild before the player and their partner came to train, and was always making some sort of mistake. Because of his incompetence, he was only trusted with basic chores and errands.

Once, on a trip to Treasure Town, Bidoof met a Snover that had been running from some Pokémon. The Snover had a map to Star Cave, which they wound up exploring together. At the end of the cave, Bidoof finds out that Snover had been working with the Pokémon that were chasing him the day before to mug him, but he was saved by the Guild. Wigglytuff finds a way for him to go further in the cave, where he meets Jirachi. After battling a sleeping Jirachi, Bidoof wishes for some new apprentices to join the Guild, who turn out to be the player and their partner.

Personality

Bidoof is seen as a kind, helpful Pokémon, though not very experienced at exploring. He can be said to be of a low intelligence, as is evident when he reveals the guild members in the player's "Graduation exam". He is loyal, and will believe his friends, and was the first to declare that he believed the player's partner's story about Dusknoir.

His character was fleshed out in Bidoof's Wish, revealing that exploring has been a life long dream. His naivity is shown as he is duped by a band of theives into being alone with them, giving them the chance to rob him. His goodness is also further proved when he finds Jirachi and is granted a wish. He turns down the oppurtunity to instantly become a great explorer, and instead wishes for "a buddy or two" that he could help, show around and give support to. this may explain his reaction when he first meets the player.

In the games

In Explorers of Time, Darkness, and Sky, Bidoof was the one who gave the tour to the player and their partner. He taught them much of what they know. On the expedition, Bidoof was grouped with the player and their partner. He, like Sunflora, also kept a diary of events that happened to him throughout the game. Later, during the guild exam, he was the one in charge of covering the hole, and the only guild member who didn't battle the player and their partner, except for the aforementioned duo.

Trivia

  • Due to Bidoof's Wish being before the story, it is possible for Bidoof to be deleveled, as he can be raised to above 14.
