Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Trailer Reveals New Pokemon Wiglett

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Trailer Reveals New Pokemon Wiglett - News

by William D'Angelo , posted on 01 October 2022 / 1,350 Views

The Pokemon Company and developer Game Freak have released a new trailer and details for a brand-new Pokémon Wiglett that will be in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.

View the Wiglett trailer below:

Read details on Wiglett below:

  • Category: Garden Eel Pokemon
  • Type: Water
  • Height: 3’11” (1.2 m)
  • Weight: 4 lbs. (1.8 kg)
  • Ability: Gooey / Rattled

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 Pokemon, Wiglett burrows into the sand to conceal itself.

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. It’s said that Wiglett’s resemblance to Diglett might be a mere coincidence—a result of its adaptation to its environment.

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet will launch for the Nintendo Switch on November 18.

No, was what the announcement explained. In-game it is initially mistaken for a regional variant but then concluded its a separate Pokemon entirely.
Its intended as an example of convergent evolution.

Its long white body and red nose make me think of one of the squirming grubs that freaked me out as a kid playing in dirt.

This may actually become one of my least favorite Pokemon ever.
