Dugtrio is a set of Diglett triplets sharing a single body. Each head 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. As shown in the anime, it sometimes lives in hollow trees in forests. It maintains the soil and plants trees to revitalize wooded areas. Druddigon is a natural predator of Dugtrio. In Generation II, Fissure was its signature move.
Alolan Dugtrio is nearly identical 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 and it grows slowly and continuously throughout Alolan Dugtrio's life. The hairs act as sensors that can detect vibrations from long distances underground. The Alolan Dugtrio is regarded as a feminine deity of the earth and taking its hairs is thought to bring bad luck.
