Pokédex entries

Red
Blue
Lives about one yard underground where it feeds on plant roots. It sometimes appears above ground.
Yellow It prefers dark places. It spends most of its time underground, though it may pop up in caves.
Gold Its skin is very thin. If it is exposed to light, its blood heats up, causing it to grow weak.
Silver If a DIGLETT DIGS through a field, it leaves the soil perfectly tilled and ideal for planting crops.
Crystal It digs underground and chews on tree roots, sticking its head out only when the sun isn't bright.
Ruby
Sapphire
DIGLETT are raised in most farms. The reason is simple - wherever this POKéMON burrows, the soil is left perfectly tilled for planting crops. This soil is made ideal for growing delicious vegetables.
FireRed It burrows through the ground at a shallow depth. It leaves raised earth in its wake, making it easy to spot.
LeafGreen Lives about one yard underground where it feeds on plant roots. It sometimes appears aboveground.
Emerald DIGLETT are raised in most farms. The reason is simple--wherever they burrow, the soil is left perfectly tilled for growing delicious crops.
Diamond
Pearl
Platinum

Diglett are raised in most farms. The reason is simple— wherever this Pokémon burrows, the soil is left perfectly tilled for planting crops. This soil is made ideal for growing delicious vegetables.
Sun It chews on plant roots underground. Farmers whose vegetables are vulnerable find it can be quite a pest.
Moon Many farmers cherish and nurture Diglett because its droppings enrich the soil it lives in.
Ultra Sun It travels through tunnels that it digs underground. It hates sunlight, so it comes out only after the sun goes down.
Ultra Moon Around their crops, farmers plant the kind of tree that Diglett like to eat as a way of getting Diglett to plow the fields for them.
