They are three Diglett huddled together, although what they look like underground is a mystery. They may be fused together, but that is uncertain. They are known, however, to have feet, like their pre-evolution.
They tunnel under the earth at 60 mph (100 km/h), triggering tremors and earthquakes.
Its three heads bob separately up and down to loosen the soil nearby, making it easier for it to burrow. Each triplet composing a Dugtrio trio thinks exactly like the other two triplets. They work cooperatively to burrow endlessly. In battle, it digs through the ground and strikes the unsuspecting foe from an unexpected direction.
Dugtrio live in tunnels and caves under the earth. They also sometimes live in burrows near forests where they maintain the soil and plant trees to revitalize wooded areas. They also have been shown to live in trees as high as the canopy. They are normally native to Kanto.
Dugtrio feed on plant roots.
