The marketing for Pokemon Scarlet and Violet continues to gather momentum as we approach the RPG duo’s launch in November, and The Pokemon Company and Nintendo have more to reveal, as you may have expected. Having recently revealed three new Pokemon that’ll be introduced with the Gen 9 titles, they’re now revealed another one- or at least partly revealed it.
Recently airing a mock webinar, “researchers” revealed a new Pokemon species in the Paldea region- a white, long, mole-like Pokemon that burrows out of the ground. The Pokemon is called “Wiglett”, funnily enough, but we don’t have any other details (such as its Type matchup). It was shown on the beach, suggesting that that could be its preferred habitat.
Of course, comparisons with Gen 1 Pokemon Diglett will be plentiful, given its mole-like design and its name, but The Pokemon Company confirms that this is a brand-new Pokemon, and not a Paldean variation of Diglett.
