Worming its way to Pokémon Scarlet/Violet
Pokémon Co. revealed Wiglett, a new Pokémon for Pokémon Scarlet/Violet, just yesterday, but now they’re back with another promo video for the Pokémon. You can get a closer look at Wiglett above.
It’s said that Wiglett’s resemblance to Diglett might be a mere coincidence—a result of its adaptation to its environment. Wiglett is a Garden Eel, Water-type Pokemon that is 3’11” tall and weighs 4 pounds. Wiglett can use the Gooey/Rattled ability.
Wiglett may look like Diglett, but it’s actually a completely different species of Pokémon. 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.
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.
