Wiglett (Japanese: ウミディグダ Umidigda) is a Water-type Pokémon introduced in Generation IX.

It evolves into Wugtrio starting at level 26.

Biology

Wiglett is a long, white Pokémon that seems to be perpetually buried within the earth, leaving only its head and part of its body visible. It has beady dark blue eyes and a large, round, pink nose. Although Wiglett has a stated Pokédex height, it is unknown how long it really is underneath the sand, or what the rest of its body looks like.[1]

Wiglett lives in beaches and seas, where it burrows into beach sand.[2] It pokes part of its body out of the ground to feed. Wiglett has an exceptional sense of smell, which has a range of over 60 feet (20 meters). Wiglett is a timid and cautious Pokémon; it hides in the sand when it picks up the scents of other Pokémon, such as Veluza, nearby.[1]

Some researchers initially confused Wiglett for a Paldean regional form of Diglett due to their physical resemblance, but they are separate species and differ in habitat and diet. It is theorized that the two species ended up having similar body plans as an adaptation to suit their environments and burrowing behavior.[1][2]

Scarlet This Pokémon can pick up the scent of a Veluza just over 65 feet away and will hide itself in the sand.
Violet Though it looks like Diglett, Wiglett is an entirely different species. The resemblance seems to be a coincidental result of environmental adaptation.

Trivia

  • Wiglett was revealed on September 28, 2022, on a mock webinar titled "World Pokémon Ecological Society".[2]

Origin

Wiglett appears to be based on garden eels. The fact that it physically resembles Diglett may be a reference to convergent evolution or parallel evolution, which can lead to separate organisms independently developing similar or identical characteristics and body plans.

Name origin

Wiglett may be a combination of wiggle, water, or white, and Diglett.

Umidigda may be a combination of 海 umi (sea) and ディグダ Digda (Diglett).
