Diggersby (ホルード) is the 11th Pokémon in the Kalos Central Pokédex. It is a Normal/Ground-Type, and is known as the Digging Pokémon.

Diggersby can use one of two Abilities: Pickup, which gives Diggersby a chance of finding an item after battle, provided that it isn't holding one at the battle's conclusion; or Cheek Pouch, a new Ability that restores its HP in addition to the effect of said Berry when it consumes one. Diggersby's Hidden Ability is Huge Power, which doubles the power of its attacks.

Bunnelby can evolve into Diggersby at Level 20.

Diggersby is in the Field Egg Group. It takes Diggersby One Million Experience Points to reach Level 100.

Pokémon Information

Competitive Battling

Diggersby resides in the Borderline (BL) tier of competitive battling, meaning it is usable in the Overused (OU) tier but banned from Underused (UU). Thanks to Huge Power, Diggersby is a destructive wallbreaker capable of tearing apart teams with its STABs. It has surprisingly good coverage with Return and Earthquake hitting many Pokemon hard, while coverage like Fire Punch and Wild Charge can take care of defensive Pokémon that would otherwise wall it. Swords Dance gives Diggersby a means to destroy defensive cores, and Quick Attack is a nice form of priority that can somewhat remedy Diggersby's relatively lackluster speed while knocking out faster, frailer threats. Diggersby can opt for a Choice Scarf set that allows it to act as a strong revenge killer while still retaining strong power. The main downfall of Diggersby is its speed and bulk, which are both relatively lacking and makes Diggersby vulnerable to the fast and hard hitting Pokémon, particularly ones that can tank a boosted Quick Attack like Mega Metagross.
