Players can get the 2x Stardust bonus by catching any Pokemon, not just Rufflet. Stardust is one of the most valuable parts of Pokemon Go. So players can look forward to collecting more Stardust and powering up their Pokemon to higher levels.

We recommend using a Star Piece to help you gain 50% more Stardust along with boosted Stardust from the bonus.
