The Pokémon Company just revealed a new Pokémon who strongly resembles Diglett, Wiglett!
The reveal came in a webinar inspired event, called the “World Pokémon Ecological Society”. Wiglett pops up at the end, and through the commentary we learn a little bit about it. The most striking detail is that despite looking like Diglett, it’s just “...a coincidence that they have similar bodies”. Wiglett appears to be an entirely new species and not a regional variant of Diglett!
You can watch the whole event here or view a video of the Wiglett portion from Serebii below:
Author’s Note: Gotta say, that is one bizarre way to show off a new Pokémon! Don't get me wrong though, I like this method a lot! As for Wiglett itself, I think they're pretty neat. I like wormy things in general, and I'm interested in seeing if it evolves into anything. But what do you think? Please let us know in the comments below!
