Dugtrio (ダグトリオ Dagutorio) is a Ground-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I. It has a Ground/Steel-type Alolan Form introduced in Generation VII.

Biology

Physiology

Dugtrio is literally a trio of Diglett. Although they look the same, the heights are varied. The middle body is the tallest, the left body is the 2nd tallest, and the right body is the shortest. The holes that Dugtrio make are bigger due to the increase in size during its evolution. It's brown and it looks similar to a mole, but with a large, pink nose.

The Alolan form of Dugtrio has developed golden magnetic "hair". The middle body has the longest and curliest hair, while the left body has shorter blond hair and the right body has the shortest and straightest hair.

Behavior

Like Diglett, Dugtrio loathe sunlight. Nonetheless, Dugtrio are more aggressive than Diglett, and they'll try all kinds of methods to attack its enemy or opponents who are digging holes underground from all directions. Druddigon is a known predator of it.

Regardless, Dugtrio are very friendly with humans. Kanto Dugtrio help people with agriculture while the Alolan Dugtrio are worship as the Goddess of The Land.

Natural abilities

Dugtrio are capable of burrowing over 60 MPH. This strength to do so sometimes triggers earthquakes or tremors.

Alolan Dugtrio have hair that will keep growing. This "hair" is actually thin yet heavy stands of steel,and can be used to detect nearby seismic activity.

Habitat

Dugtrio live underground in caves. PK004: Pikachu's Rescue Adventure, shows they live in hollow trees as well.

Evolution

Dugtrio is the evolved form of Diglett as of level 26.

In the Pokémon Stadium 2 stage, a Dugtrio can be seen on the Ground Terrain situated next to a large rock. Cubone & Pokémon Fossils can also be seen on the Ground Terrain.

Trophy Description

"A Mole Pokemon. It has three heads that seem to all think the same thing. It lives in caves and is skilled at digging--no matter how hard the ground is, it can dig up to 62 miles below the surface. It's among the fastest of Ground-type Pokemon, a characteristic that can be counted on in combat. Its Sand Tomb is an effective attack that prevents opponents from escaping."

Trivia

  • Dugtrio is the first Pokémon to appear in the combined form or in a group (the others being Magneton, Exeggcute, etc.)
  • Dugtrio's Alolan form resembles a full family.
  • When Dugtrio uses Supersonic Skystrike (Flyium-Z) when flying there is a little piece of earth under it.
  • It has the highest base speed of all ground types.
  • It shares its category with Drilbur.
  • Fissure was formerly its signature move.

Origin

Dugtrio is based on the mechanical moles on "whack a mole" games.

Alolan Dugtrio is based on the phenomenon of Pele's Hair, when volcanic glass solidifies into long golden strands. It's also likely a visual pun on the music genre hair metal due to its Steel-typing.

Etymology

"Dugtrio" comes from "Dug" and "Trio", referencing its ground type and the fact it has three heads.
