Wiglett is a Water type Pokémon introduced in Generation 9. It is known as the Garden Eel Pokémon.

Wiglett was revealed in a spoof presentation from the "World Pokemon Ecological Society", which looked at how Pokémon adapted to different landscapes.

Although Wiglett bears similarities to Diglett, it is in fact a completely different species of Pokémon. Boasting an exceptional sense of smell, Wiglett is able to pick up scents from over 60 feet away.​
