Pokemon Scarlet and Violet reveals new “garden eel” Pokemon Wiglett
The Pokemon Company and developer Game Freak revealed a new Pokemon for Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, the “garden eel” Wiglett.
Here’s a rundown on the new ‘mon, as well as new video:
Category: Garden Eel Pokémon
Height: 3’11” (1.2 m)
Weight: 4 lbs. (1.8 kg)
Ability: Gooey / Rattled
Boasting an exceptional sense of smell, Wiglett is able to pick up scents from over 60 feet away. It has a skittish disposition and is constantly cautious of its surroundings. When it notices the scent of other Pokémon, Wiglett burrows into the sand to conceal itself.
Wiglett pokes a part of its body out of the sand to feed in the ocean. It’s still unclear what the rest of its body hidden in the sand is like or how long it might be. It’s said that Wiglett’s resemblance to Diglett might be a mere coincidence—a result of its adaptation to its environment.
Pokemon Scarlet and Violet are set to release on November 18th, on Nintendo Switch. Also players can receive a special Pikachu, which knows the Fly and has Flying Tera Type, this early -purchase gift will be available until February 28, 2023.
