Bidoof (ビッパ) is the 13th Pokémon in the Sinnoh Pokédex. It is a Normal-Type, and it is known as the Plump Mouse Pokémon.

Bidoof can use one of two Abilities: Simple, which doubles the effectiveness of the modifications to its Statistics, causing Work Up to increase its Attack and Special Attack by two stages instead of one (for example); or Unaware, which ignores any and all Statistic Modifications by its opponents. Bidoof's Hidden Ability is the Moody Ability. This Ability takes effect at the end of every turn, increasing one random Statistic by two stages but reducing another random Statistic by one stage--the affected Statistics also include Accuracy and Evasion.

Bidoof gain the opportunity to evolve into Bibarel starting at Level 15.

Bidoof is in the Egg Groups Water 1 and Field, and its Egg takes approximately 3,840 Steps to hatch. It takes Bidoof One Million Experience Points to reach Level 100.
