This tiny brown Pokémon's most famous feature is that it is perpetually buried within the earth, always having only its head visible. Another one of its most distinguishing characteristics is its big pink nose. Its height is 0'08" and weight is 1.8 lbs.
What Diglett looks like underground is a mystery, a fact that has sparked many fan interpretations over the years. Based on its height and weight, it is unlikely that the part of Diglett which is hidden can be much bigger than the portion that is visible.
It burrows through the ground at a shallow depth. It leaves raised earth in its wake, making it easy to spot. Diglett has very thin skin, and thus if Diglett is exposed to light its blood will heat up, causing it to grow weak. This could be why Diglett prefer dark places, sticking its head up only when the sun is not bright.
Diglett live in tunnels and caves over the earth. They also sometimes live in burrows near forests where they maintain the soil. On occasions, they have been shown to live in the canopies of forests. Diglett are frequently kept on farms to till the land. Diglett are native to Kanto, but can be found in Sinnoh.
