There is an Earthworm Pokemon, Orthworm, wriggling around in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. Here’s everything you need to know to catch one.
Giant worms moving around in the sand of the desert might sound very Star Wars, or even Dune, for trainers.
However, there is a giant Earthworm – eight foot long, in fact – waiting to rear its head in the Paldea region, and it’s no pushover. It is No. 296 on the Pokedex.
When attacked, Orthworm wields the tendrils on its body like fists and can pelt an opponent with a storm of punches.
Let’s take a look at where this Pokemon spawns, so you can go battle (or catch) it for yourself.
Orthworm is sensitive to sound and lives in deserts, so don’t be scared if you’re running in the sand and one appears in the overworld.
