Trainers can find the Generation 1 Ground-types Diglett and Dugtrio in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet, who inspired the brand new Water-type Pokemon Wiglett. Here’s how trainers can find them in Generation 9.

Pokemon Scarlet & Violet introduced a new category of Pokemon that fans have dubbed ‘Convergent Pokemon.’ These Pokemon resemble those from past Generations and regions but are not considered alternate forms, like Toedscruel and Wiglett.

While the Pokemon that Toedscruel is based on—Tentacool—is not present in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet, Wiglett’s inspiration Diglett and its evolution Dugtrio can be found in Generation 9.

So, here’s how players can find these two Mole Pokemon burrowing around the wilds of the Paldea region.
