Have you ever thought what Diglett might look like if it were a worm? Well, even if it doesn’t, bad luck because Pokémon Scarlet and Violet will be introducing Wiglett.
Wiglett was revealed during the World Pokémon Ecological Society webinar (via Serebii). “I’ve never seen a Pokémon like this,” says the off-commentary. “Could it be a Diglett? It resembles Diglett, but its coloring is different. Could it be a regional form unique to Paldea?”
The new Pokemon looks very similar to Red and Blue’s Diglett, but now in a more elongated shape. It’s actually based on the common garden eel rather than a worm, but, you know, it is called a wiglet.

“They must be an evolved form of Diglett,” says a second voiceover. “Rather than evolving into triplets like Dugtrio, they adapt to a marine environment with a different shape.”
“They share certain anatomical similarities,” the video’s voiceover reads. “Since their appearance is so different, it must be a completely different species!” the video continues. “This is the first time we’ve seen this Pokémon.” The voice then names the Pokémon “Wiglett.”
“Although they appear to be the Paldean form of Diglett, we have learned that they live and feed differently,” they continue. That settles it – Wiglett is a whole different type of Pokemon and definitely not a dodgy looking Diglett.

“According to the research, it’s supposed to be a coincidence that they have similar bodies, since they both burrow into the ground and into the sand,” they reveal.
