Dugtrio (Japanese: ダグトリオ Dugtrio) is a Ground-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

It evolves from Diglett starting at level 26.

In Alola, Dugtrio has a Ground/Steel-type regional form. It evolves from Alolan Diglett starting at level 26.

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, though on rare occasions may fight over which head gets to eat first. 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 kilometers), triggering tremors and earthquakes. It is capable of burrowing endlessly. 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. For a brief time, Fissure was its signature move. Druddigon is a natural predator of Dugtrio.

Alolan Dugtrio is nearly identical to its counterpart, except each head has a mop of golden hair formed from modified whiskers. The left head has a bob-cut, the right head has curly "shoulder-length" hair, and the last one has flowing hair that touches the ground behind it. This hair is made out of thin, yet heavy strands of steel and it grows slowly and continuously throughout Alolan Dugtrio's life.[1] The hairs act as sensors that can detect vibrations from long distances underground. The Alolan Dugtrio is regarded as a feminine deity of the earth and taking its hairs is thought to bring bad luck.

Trivia

  • Dugtrio and its pre-evolved form share their category name with Drilbur. They are all known as the Mole Pokémon.
  • Dugtrio has the highest base Speed stat of all Ground-type Pokémon.
  • Due to being embedded in the ground, Diglett and Dugtrio have special interactions with certain mechanics in the Pokémon games.
    • In the Pokéathlon, Diglett and Dugtrio are unable to jump. In Hurdle Dash they dig under hurdles instead of jumping them, in Lamp Jump they cannot move, and in Disc Catch they can only move but not jump to catch the discs.
    • Since Generation V, when Diglett and Dugtrio are sent out, they merely fade onto the screen instead of dropping down like all other Pokémon.
    • In the Poké Transfer, Diglett and Dugtrio run between bushes rather than jump.
    • On the "Compare" screen of Pokémon X and Y's Pokédex, if the player taps the menu sprite of Diglett, Dugtrio, or Mega Gengar, the Flying-type Pokémon will give up and disperse before even trying to lift it.
    • Diglett, Dugtrio, Sandygast, Palossand, and Mega Gengar are immune to Telekinesis.
    • If a Z-Move animation, such as Supersonic Skystrike, results in showing Diglett or Dugtrio in the air, it is shown still embedded in the ground.

Origin

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

Alolan Dugtrio's hair may be based on Pele's hair, a thin volcanic glass formed near Hawaiian volcanoes. The lore of taking its hairs references the modern Pele's Curse.

Name origin

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