Pokemon Sword & Shield got its first DLC, The Isle of Armor, as part of the Expansion Pass on June 17. One of the addon’s sidequests asks you to find a whopping 150 Alolan Diglett hidden around the island – and we’ve got the location of every single one here.

After stepping out of the station in the Fields of Honor, players are tasked with making their way to the fighting dojo. Along the way, a mysterious NPC can be seen standing by a bridge, and will ask you to help hunt down 150 of his Diglett who have ran (or dug, rather) away and gone missing.

Hunting down that many monsters may seem like a daunting quest at first, especially since Alolan Diglett has three little hairs sticking out of its head and can easily be mistaken for blades of grass. If you’re stuck on where to find them, then you’ve come to the right place as we’ve got all the locations below.

Talk to the man by the bridge to begin the search.

All Alolan Diglett locations

You don’t have to collect all 150 before you return to the owner – you can come back any time to find out how many you still need to discover by interacting with the sign next to him. It lists what hasn’t been found yet by area, so if you lose your way at any point, it’s easy to pick up where you left off.

Returning certain amounts to the man will earn you some pretty sweet rewards – a whole horde of Alolan Pokemon. For the full list of prizes, check out our guide here. You can find the locations for all the missing Alolan Diglett below:

First Gen 6 species coming to Pokemon Go revealed: Greninja, more

Niantic have confirmed that Gen 6 species are coming to Pokemon Go on December 2. Now, thanks to a datamine from the PokeMiners, we have a list of Pokemon originating from the Kalos region found in the game’s code.

Those Gen 6 Pokemon are as follows:

  • Chespin, Quilladin, Chesnaught
  • Fennekin, Braixen, Delphox
  • Froakie, Frogadier, Greninja
  • Bunnelby, Diggersby
  • Fletchling, Fletchinder, Talonflame
  • Scatterbug
  • Litleo, Pyroar (both forms)
  • Espurr, Meowstic
  • Klefki
  • Noibat, Noivern
Gen 6 Pokemon DatamineGen 6 assets found in the Pokemon Go code…

That’s already 21 of the 72 new species the Kalos region introduces. However, just because the assets of these Pokemon have been found in the Pokemon Go game files, doesn’t necessarily mean they will be available on December 2.

According to the Pokemon Go blog we can expect to see all of the above minus Scatterbug, Espurr, Meowstic, Noibat and Noivern. Meanwhile, Klefki will only be appearing for trainers in France.

That means the other five will be coming at a later date. Given they are already in the code though, this shouldn’t be too far away. Alternatively, they could be appearing on December 2 but Niantic didn’t announce them to leave a surprise.

It was also announced there will be a mysterious Pokemon appearing in one-star Raid Battles. This could very well be Scatterbug, Espurr or Noibat.

What we know about these new Kalos Pokemon

The Kalos starter Pokemon – Chespin, Fennekin and Froakie – are definitely available from the outset. They follow the usual grass, fire and water typings but their final evolutions introduce some interesting combinations.

Chesnaught is a grass/fighting type, Delphox fire and psychic and the ever popular Greninja is water and dark. In terms of weaknesses to resistances, these typings favor Delphox and Greninja.

Elsewhere, Noibat will require a massive 400 Candies, the same as Magikarp. It will be interesting to see if consequently Noivern plays any type of role in the game’s meta.

The Gen 5 rollout is still yet to be complete and has been going on for well over a year. The Gen 6 Pokedex is a lot smaller though, which means its entire rollout should take less than a year.
