Dugtrio (Japanese: ダグトリオ Dugtrio) is a Ground-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

It evolves from Diglett starting at level 26.

In Alola, Dugtrio has a dual-type Ground/Steel regional form. It evolves from Alolan Diglett starting at level 26.

It is ecologically similar to Wugtrio; however, the two are separate species.

Biology

Dugtrio is a set of Diglett triplets sharing a single body, although no one knows what its body looks like since it's perpetually buried underground. Each head is incredibly tough with a smooth surface, and has brown skin, black eyes, and a large, round, pink nose. Dugtrio's three heads think the same thoughts and act cooperatively, though on rare occasions may fight over which head gets to eat first. In order to make burrowing easier, each head will bob up and down to loosen the soil. Dugtrio can tunnel under the earth at 60 mph (100 km/h) to a depth of 60 miles (100 kilometers), triggering tremors and earthquakes. It is capable of burrowing endlessly. Dugtrio lives in tunnels and caves under the earth. Dugtrio is considered important for agriculture as its digging aerates the soil and makes it suitable for farming. As shown in the anime, Dugtrio sometimes lives in hollow trees in forests. It maintains the soil and plants trees to revitalize wooded areas. As mentioned in Pokémon Sleep, the three triplets of Dugtrio is known to sleep together, never separating from each other. The trio's teamwork remains strong even when sleeping.[1]

In Generation II, Fissure was its signature move.

Forms

Dugtrio has a regional form: Alolan Dugtrio.

Alolan Dugtrio is visually very similar to its counterpart, except each head has a mop of golden hair formed from modified whiskers. The left head has a bob-cut, the right head has curly "shoulder-length" hair, and the last one has flowing hair that touches the ground behind it. This hair is made out of thin, yet heavy strands of steel, which grows slowly and continuously throughout Alolan Dugtrio's life.[2] The hairs act as a defensive measure, as well as sensors that can detect vibrations from long distances underground. In the Alola region, Alolan Dugtrio is regarded as a feminine deity of the earth, and taking its hairs is thought to bring bad luck.[2] They can also be found in the Coastal Biome of Blueberry Academy's Terarium, where Alola's island life is simulated.

Alolan Dugtrio and its pre-evolution are the only known Pokémon that can have Tangling Hair as an Ability.

Wugtrio was once considered a regional variant of Dugtrio due to their resemblance, but it has since been reclassified as a completely separate species.

"A Mole Pokémon. 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 Pokémon, a characteristic that can be counted on in combat. Its Sand Tomb is an effective attack that prevents opponents from escaping."

Trivia

  • Dugtrio and its pre-evolved form share their category name with Drilbur. They are all known as the Mole Pokémon.
  • Dugtrio has the highest base Speed stat of all Ground-type Pokémon.
    • Of all Pokémon to have the highest Speed stat of their respective types, Dugtrio is the slowest.
  • Due to being embedded in the ground, Diglett and Dugtrio have special interactions with certain mechanics in the Pokémon games.
    • In the Pokéathlon, Diglett and Dugtrio are unable to jump. In Hurdle Dash, they dig under hurdles instead of jumping them, in Lamp Jump they cannot move, and in Disc Catch they can only move but not jump to catch the discs.
    • Since Generation V, when Diglett and Dugtrio are sent out, they merely fade onto the screen instead of dropping down like all other Pokémon.
    • In the Poké Transfer, Diglett and Dugtrio run between bushes rather than jump.
    • On the "Compare" screen of Pokémon X and Y's Pokédex, if the player taps the menu sprite of Diglett, Dugtrio, or Mega Gengar, the Flying-type Pokémon will give up and disperse before even trying to lift it.
    • Diglett, Dugtrio, Sandygast, Palossand, and Mega Gengar are immune to Telekinesis.
    • If a Z-Move animation, such as Supersonic Skystrike, results in showing Diglett or Dugtrio in the air, it is shown still embedded in the ground.
  • Dugtrio's body has been described inconsistently throughout the franchise's history. Originally, it was three Diglett forming a group of three, but more recent Pokédex entries claim it split from a single Diglett into three - sometimes separate, sometimes sharing a body.
  • Despite being the only species seen within the halls of the Grand Underground in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, Diglett and Dugtrio cannot actually be caught or traditionally encountered in any of the Pokémon Hideaways.
  • Kantonian Dugtrio and Wugtrio have exactly the same base stats in the same distribution. Their pre-evolved forms also evolve starting at the same level.
  • Alolan Dugtrio, Wugtrio and their pre-evolutions share two Abilities, being Sand Veil and either Gooey or Tangling Hair, the latter two being variations of each other.
  • Despite being described as three Diglett in some sources, their official weight is listed as being well over the weight of three Diglett.
  • In Generation IX, prior to the Version 2.0.1 update of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, Kantonian Dugtrio was unable to learn Helping Hand via TM, while its pre-evolution could.
  • Dugtrio is the only Ground-type Pokémon consisting of multiple bodies.

Origin

Dugtrio appears to be based on artificial moles used in the Whac-A-Mole arcade games.

Alolan Dugtrio's hair may be based on Pele's hair, a thin volcanic glass formed near Hawaiian volcanoes. The lore of taking its hairs may reference the modern Pele's Curse, while its reputation as a feminine deity may be a reference to Pele herself. The darker soil surrounding its body may be a reference to black sand, which is found on beaches near volcanoes. Its Steel type may be a reference to another kind of magnetic black sand found in placer deposits. It also resembles a stereotypical Southern California surfer with tanned skin and blonde hair.

Name origin

Dugtrio may be a combination of dug and trio (a group of three).
