We've come full circle, these are just Digimon :laughing:

Not that I'm complaining, they look awesome :grin:

They make me think of Megaman Battle Network.

Another new Pokémon reveal. I'd post the clips, but I'm on my crummy Wi-Fi, so I can only load a screenshot without risking losing a month waiting.

Despite the misleading subtitles, this isn't a Paldean Diglett, but it's classified as a new Pokémon entirely, with some sort of connection to Diglett.

It's called Wiglett. No, really, it is.

The subtitle does seem to suggest Digletts will be extinct though

Does it evolve into WigTrio? We already have Alolan Dugtrio.

Eh, I'm hoping that because it's not a regional form, they go in a different design direction then three of them slapped together.

Diglett pre-evolution, I assume?

Disclaimer: Rest assured, we do not have white larvae with red noses digging around in our Iberian beaches. We do have sand fleas though, but they look nothing like that.

I wouldn't put my money on that either. It'd be weird for it to lose the ability to stretch on evolution.

Maybe it's stretchiness remains under the surface. After all, we know Dugtrio is secretly huge

I reckon it's a Pokemon that has evolved to have a diglett looking lure on the end of its tail, and the rest of the huge pokemon is hidden beneath the sand, ready to explode out and attack.

That's a very rubbish item pack. Even 15 Quick Balls would be preferable.

Alright, seeing as Wigletts are apparently meant to be (or just resemble) Garden Eels, it's time I talked a bit about their presence and influence in Iberia.

Spoiler

We don't have them. I have no fucking idea what a Garden Eel is.

So yeah, hope that helped.

I hope they have decided to get rid of the stupid hats. Or at least not have them from the off.

I assume you mean the type indicators used with the Terastal mechanic?

If so, that's not happening, far too late in development to change that, and it provides a purpose in letting you know what type a Terastalised Pokémon is.

Oh, well in that case, you'll be able to take it off like in every game since Sun/Moon, so hardly an issue.

I've been there with Sword/Shield, the default outfit is so crummy there, I think it was done on purpose to get people to wear anything else.

14 minutes long trailer! But the last 5 minutes are skippable as they are just about customisation of trainer and bonding with Pokémon through baths and food.

Farigiraf is funny. :D
