Update [Thu 29th Sep 2022, 14:10 BST]: The Pokémon Company has just dropped a brand new trailer for Wiglett, yesterday's rather unusual discovery. He's coming to Pokémon Scarlet & Violet this November, and now we know a little bit more about this strange creature.
According to the official Pokémon Scarlet & Violet website, Wiglett is a Garden Eel Pokémon, and he's a pure Water-type. The white eel's page also reconfirms that this Pokémon isn't related to Diglett, but it does share a common mystery — what does its body look like under the sand? And just how long is it?
We... kind of love the little guy?
Original article [Wed 28th Sep, 2022 10:40 BST]: The Pokémon Company has been sharing details on the upcoming Pokémon Scarlet & Violet via a fake webinar this morning, and we've got a look at what looks to be a little Diglett-type guy.
We managed to grab a few screenshots of the worm-like Pokémon, which looks to be found at the beach.
During the webinar, the 'researchers' call the new Pokémon 'Wiglett' and that it's a coincidence that it looks like Diglett. However, it's not a Paldean form of Diglett, but instead, it's an entirely new Pokémon.
That's all we know about this new, white creature, but we'll be sure to update this post as we get more details!
