When you first read this name, you may think I’m talking about Diglett and Dugtrio. Oh, don’t worry; they’re in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet too. This time, though, the focus is on the newly added Wiglett, a Water-type version of Diglett making its first grand appearance in this game. Not only does Wiglett exists, but it has an evolved form reminiscent of Dugtrio. If you’re interested in learning more, continue reading to discover how to evolve Wiglett into Wugtrio in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.
How to Evolve Wiglett into Wugtrio in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet
To evolve Wiglett into Wugtrio, you’ll have to reach level 25 with the Pokemon. You won’t have to equip any items or battle specific Pokemon beforehand. Below are a few ways to raise your Wiglett’s level:
- Fight against other Pokemon using traditional battling. While not the fastest method, it’s reliable!
- Engage in Auto-battles by pressing R to send out the Pokemon in your first party slot.
- Battle any Trainers, Gym Leaders or other high-EXP battles for large boosts in experience.
- Use EXP Candies for quick and instant experience boosts. (Bag > Other Items > EXP Candies)
Once your Wiglett reaches level 25 using any of these strategies, your Rotom Phone will appear, followed by the evolution screen. From here, your Wiglett will turn into Wugtrio!
Where to Find Wugtrio in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet
If you want to avoid investing time or hard-earned EXP candies into levelling your Wiglett, you can catch Wugtrio in the wild instead. Much like Wiglett, Wugtrio spawns along sandy beaches in various Paldean Regions. Some notable spots include West Province’s Area Two beach, the coastline south of Levincia and the northern shore in North Province’s Area Three.
