Pokémon Legends: Arceus features a wide array of sidequests known as requests, each with its own mini-story or small objective to complete. Early on in the adventure, they are simplistic, often requiring you to fetch an item or research into a specific Pokémon. You will want to complete these tasks to receive helpful items to aid you in your travels, so as soon as you see a request marker, take it on. If you head into the Galactic HQ and interact with the bulletin board in Professor Laventon’s study, you will be able to accept requests that are a little more unique in comparison to the more trivial pieces of content. One of these requests is called Bothersome Bidoof, so here is a guide explaining how to complete it in Pokémon Legends: Arceus and the locations for where to find all three Bidoof.
How to complete the Bothersome Bidoof request in Pokémon Legends: Arceus
Bidoof has become a meme, even featured in an official parody of “Never Gonna Give You Up.” The Bothersome Bidoof request is essentially a game of hide-and-seek, as you need to track down three Bidoof that think it’s okay to munch on the village’s woodwork. To initiate the quest properly, you will need to speak to Tsumugi, who is located next to the Jubilife Village main gate. After speaking with her, the three Bidoof will come running into the village to cause mischief, so you are then tasked with chasing after them. Before you go looking for the cheeky Pokémon, you will need to add a Bidoof to your party to distract them. If for some reason you don’t have a Bidoof on hand, go over to the Pastures to add one to your party.
Now that you’ve added Jerry the Bidoof to your team, it’s time to go hunting for Craig, Steve, and Brenda. Here are the locations for each of them:
The first member of the Bidoof gang can be found right next to Galactic HQ, munching on some shelving next to the building’s scaffolding. Simply throw your Poké Ball containing Bidoof next to it and begin to approach it. If you were successful, the two Bidoof will smile at each other, presenting Tsumugi with the opportunity to capture it.
The second Bidoof can be found right next to the pasture’s fencing, so follow it down until you see the Pokémon having a snack. Repeat the steps from the previous encounter to give Tsumugi a chance to catch it.
The third and final Bidoof can be located opposite the Farm area, right next to some Barrels. Just like with the previous two, send out Jerry to make the wild Bidoof happy.
Upon obtaining the final wild Pokémon, a cutscene will play out, revealing that the naughty Bidoof are now members of the Construction Crew. Tsumugi will reward you with a Rare Candy, completing the request in the process. That’s everything you need to know for this guide about where to find Bidoof in the Bothersome Bidoof request in Pokémon Legends: Arceus. Check out more Pokémon Legends: Arceus guides for more tips:
