Dugtrio (ダグトリオ) is the 51st Pokémon in the Pokédex. It is a Ground-Type, and it is known as the Mole Pokémon.

Dugtrio can use one of two Abilities: Sand Veil, which increases its Evasion by one stage during a Sandstorm; or Arena Trap, which prevents opposing Pokémon from running or switching out unless it has Levitate or is a Flying-Type. Dugtrio's Hidden Ability is the Sand Force Ability, which increases the power of its Ground, Rock and Steel-Type Pokémon by 33% during a Sandstorm.

Diglett can evolve into Dugtrio at Level 26.

Dugtrio is in the Field Egg Group, and its Egg takes approximately 5,120 Steps to hatch. It takes Dugtrio One Million Experience Points to reach Level 100.

[edit] Anime/Manga Information

[edit] Anime

Wild Dugtrio would make an appearance in Dig Those Diglett after Ash and company pursued some Diglett into the woods. It was here in which they understood why no one's Pokémon wanted to exit their Poké Balls when commanded.

Poncho would also use a Dugtrio in The Underground Round Up to help defeat Team Rocket, and get the Voltorb and Electrode to a meadow.

Katie would use a Dugtrio in her battle against Ash in Shocks and Bonds. It would defeat Pikachu, but lose to Glalie after Ash had it use a Headbutt on the ground to force Dugtrio to pop up from the underground, then hit it with an Ice Beam.

[edit] Movies

Wild Dugtrio make appearances in Giratina and the Sky Warrior, along with the Pikachu Shorts "Pikachu's Vacation," "Pikachu's Rescue Adventure," "Pikachu & Pichu" and "Meloetta's Moonlight Serenade."

[edit] Manga

Giovanni would use a Dugtrio to take on Red at Viridian Gym in Chapter 38. His Dugtrio would break the switches on each of Red's Poké Balls, preventing Red from summoning any of his Pokémon from them......except for his Pikachu, Pika.

The Underground Man would use a trio of Dugtrio to assist the Sinnoh Gym Leaders during their fight against Team Galactic at Spear Pillar in Chapters 411 and 412.

[edit] Pokémon Information

[edit] Competitive Battling

Dugtrio finds itself in the Over-Utilized and Uber Tiers of Competitive Battling thanks to its Ability Arena Trap and its very high Speed. While it isn't the strongest Pokémon in terms of Attack, trapping the right Pokémon will hurt your opposition (such as a Pokémon locked into an Electric-Type move due to a Choice Item), allowing it to get a KO or to set up with Hone Claws before a counter gets put into play.

Dugtrio is the fastest user of the move Memento, a great way to sacrifice itself to allow another Pokémon to set up.

It's a good thing that Dugtrio is fast, because its overall bulk is horrible due to low Defenses and an abysmally low HP. If it gets hit by a priority move it will be in trouble.
