A DIGLETT THAT DWELLS IN THE SEA?! NOT QUITE! DISCOVER WIGLETT, A BRAND-NEW POKÉMON DISCOVERED IN PALDEA!
Bellevue, WA — September 29, 2022 — The Pokémon Company International has revealed details about a newly discovered Pokémon found in the Paldea region of the Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet games: Wiglett, the Garden Eel Pokémon! It may look like Diglett, but it’s really a completely different species of Pokémon!
Boasting an exceptional sense of smell, Wiglett is able to pick up scents from over 60 feet away. It has a skittish disposition and is constantly cautious of its surroundings. When it notices the scent of other Pokémon, Wiglett burrows into the sand to conceal itself.
Wiglett pokes a part of its body out of the sand to feed in the ocean. It’s still unclear what the rest of its body hidden in the sand is like or how long it might be. It’s said that Wiglett’s resemblance to Diglett might be a mere coincidence—a result of its adaptation to its environment.
