Biology

Dugtrio is a set of Diglett triplets sharing a single body. Each head has brown skin, black eyes, and a large, round, pink nose. Dugtrio's three heads think the same thoughts and act cooperatively. In order to make burrowing easier, each head will bob up and down to loosen the soil. Dugtrio can tunnel under the earth at 60 mph (100 km/h) to a depth of 60 miles (100 km), triggering tremors and earthquakes. It is capable of burrowing endlessly. For a brief time, Fissure was its signature move.

Dugtrio lives in tunnels and caves under the earth. As shown in the anime, it sometimes lives in hollow trees in forests. It maintains the soil and plants trees to revitalize wooded areas.

The Alolan Dugtrio appears to look much like other Dugtrio apart from the golden hair each head sports. One head has a bob-cut, the second has curly "shoulder-length" and the last one has flowing hair that touches the ground behind it. This hair is made out of thin strands of steel and it grows slowly and continuously throughout the Dugtrio's life. The Alolan Dugtrio is regarded as a feminine deity of the earth and taking its hairs are thought to bring bad luck.

Trivia

  • Dugtrio and its pre-evolution share their category name with Drilbur. They are all known as the Mole Pokémon.
  • Dugtrio has the highest base Speed of all Ground-type Pokémon.
  • In the Pokéathlon Hurdle Dash, Dugtrio and Diglett are seen to go underground rather than physically jump out of the ground.
  • In Generation V, when Dugtrio and Diglett are sent out, they merely fade onto the screen instead of dropping down like all other Pokémon.
  • In the Poké Transfer, Dugtrio and Diglett run between bushes rather than jump.

Origin

Dugtrio appears to be very similar to the artificial moles used in the Whac-A-Mole arcade games.

Name origin

Dugtrio is a combination of dug (past tense of dig) and trio (a group of three).
