 Anime/Manga Information
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.
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.

 Pokémon Information
 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.
