Diglett (Japanese: ディグダ Digda) is a Ground-type Pokémon.

Biology

Physiology

This tiny brown Pokémon's most famous feature is that it seems to be perpetually buried within the earth, all that's usually seen is its head. It also has a big red nose.

A big mystery is what Diglett looks like under the ground, with many fan interpretations appearing over the years. The only thing known is that they have feet, as mentioned in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon, although not even the Magnemite knew until Diglett mentioned its feet.

Gender differences

None that can be seen above ground.

Special abilities

They dig underground quickly, and can cause small tremors.

Behavior

Habitat

Diglett live in tunnels and caves under the earth. They also sometimes live in burrows near forests where they maintain the soil plant trees to revitalize wooded areas.

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food Diglett may also eat dirt, as some ground-dwelling creatures do.

In the anime

A Diglett in the anime

Diglett first appeared in Dig Those Diglett. These Mole Pokémon were causing trouble for a construction crew that planning on building a dam. The foreman insisted that the Diglett were to be exterminated, but the Pokémon of the trainers that happened to be in the area refused to fight them. The reason was that the Diglett and Dugtrio were helping to plant trees in the forest.

Diglett were also used by a man named Poncho in The Underground Round-Up. He used them to dig tunnels underground of a town that was infested with Electrode. The tunnels sent the Bomb Ball Pokémon to an open field where they'd live in peace.

Diglett appear in the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time & Darkness special as members of the Wigglytuff Guild. They sounded the alarm whenever intruders stepped into the Guild.

In the manga

In the Pokémon Special manga

Diglett makes a cameo in the Red, Green & Blue chapter in Raging Rhydon as a Mt. Moon wild Pokémon.

Trivia

File:Diggletsfeet.gif
Diglett mentioning having feet in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon.

Origin

Diglett appears to be very similar to the artificial moles used in Whac-A-Mole arcade games, as referenced by its full health phrase in Mystery Dungeon Red/Blue. There is also some similarity to worms.

Name origin

Diglett's name seems to combine dig and piglet. Its Japanese name simply refers to the word dig.
