The Pokémon Company International has revealed details about a new Pokémon discovered in the Paldea region, in which Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet are set : it is Wiglett, the Conger Pokémon. 

Despite its resemblance to Diglett, it is a completely different species of Pokémon.

With his exceptional nose, Wiglett is able to smell smells from 20 meters away. He is nervous in nature and constantly attentive to his surroundings 

When he smells another Pokémon, Wiglett hides in the sand.

In the ocean, it makes a part of its body pop out of the sand to feed. The shape and length of the part of the body that remains hidden in the sand are still unknown. 

Its resemblance to Diglett is said to be pure coincidence caused by the process of adapting to its habitat.

  • Category: Grongo Pokémon
  • Type: Water
  • Height: 1.2m
  • Weight: 1.8 kg
  • Skills: Viscosity / Fear

Wiglett will appear in Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet , available from November 18, 2022 exclusively on Nintendo Switch consoles .
