The Pokédex states that groups of Empoleon are led by the one with the biggest horns, as the horns "attest to its power".[9] It also says that Empoleon can "swim as fast as a jet boat", and that "edges of its wings are sharp and can slice apart drifting ice".[10] The Pokédex also describes Empoleon's tendency to defend their pride, and that they "would slash [anyone who hurts its pride] with wings that can cleave through an ice floe",[11] as well as "decimating anything that threatens its pride", despite "[avoiding] unnecessary disputes".[12] Empoleon is notable for its appearances as a playable character in the arcade and Nintendo Switch versions of Pokkén Tournament.[13][14]

It's also possible that part of the name is derived from "shadoof", which is a device used to irrigate water. Its Japanese name may be taken from "beaver", and "deppa" (出っ歯), meaning "protruding tooth".

Jerrad Wyche of The Gamer called Bidoof "the clear cut worst Normal-type of the Sinnoh region",[26] while Keane Ng of The Escapist said Bidoof was "everyone's favorite bucktoothed, ubiquitous, and completely useless and trash-tier Pokémon".[27] However, leaning into these memes, Game Informer's Alex Stadnick described its appearance in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl as a "cultural revolution",[28] showcasing this disparity.
