This tiny brown Pokémon's most famous feature is that it seems to be perpetually buried within the earth, usually having only its head visible. Another one of its most distinguishing characteristics is its big pink nose.
They dig underground quickly, and can cause small tremors. Diglett can pull their heads underground at the speed of light.
It burrows through the ground at a shallow depth. It leaves raised earth in its wake, making it easy to spot. Diglett has very thin skin, and thus if Diglett is exposed to light its blood will heat up, causing it to grow weak. This could be why Diglett prefer dark places, sticking its head up only when the sun is not bright.
Diglett live in tunnels and caves under the earth. They also sometimes live in burrows near forests where they maintain the soil. On occasions, they have been shown to live in the canopies of forests. Diglett are frequently kept on farms to till the land. Diglett are native to Kanto.
Diglett feeds on plant roots.
