Diglett used Dig by Macuarrorro

“The attacker digs underground in the first turn, then pops up in the next turn to attack.”

The Dig move is an attack used primarily by Ground and Rock Pokemon who dig into the Earth for the first turn and then rise up to attack the opponent. Throughout each generation, it has always been acquired as TM28.

Though effective in avoiding attacks; Dig does not always make the user invulnerable. Ground-Type moves like Earthquake, Magnitude and Fissure can still damage the Pokemon using Dig. And since it is a Ground-Type move; Flying-Type Pokemon are not affected by Dig.


Diglett used Earthquake by AClockworkKitten

“The user sets off an earthquake that hits all the Pokémon in the battle.”

 Earthquake is a powerful Ground-Type move that deals damage to all non-Flying-Type Pokemon. It has always been acquired through all Generations as TM26.

Both the Power and the Accuracy of this move are at the max number of 100. Hence why the PP is only 10. Any opponent using Dig that is hit with this move will most likely receive double the amount of damage by it.


“Its head pokes up approximately eight inches out of the ground. However, its real size remains a mystery to this day.”

 Though it can be likened to the green hills seen in Mario games, the Diglett is a living and breathing creature. Its head is the only part of its body that pokes out of the ground; leaving trainers and Pokemon professors alike wondering what the rest of its body looks like.

At level 26 it evolves into Dugtrio; where three heads now sprout simultaneously out of the ground. Whether or not these heads are attached to one body or it evolved into three separate types of Digletts is also a bit of a mystery.




“Lives about one yard underground where it feeds on plant roots. It sometimes appears above ground”
