Wiglett’s wobbly evolution gets wacky in even more Pokémon Scarlet and Violet leaks

Slippery little things, these eels.

The newest iteration of Pokémon game is just around the corner with Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, and a few Poké-fans have allegedly gotten their hands on a rom of Pokémon Scarlet. Whether it’s new game mechanics for players to sink their teeth into or unique creatures that players can find, fans are receiving a bit of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet information before they’re supposed to — Wiglett’s evolution would be one such example.

The garden eel Pokémon Wiglett might raise a few brows as some compare it to Diglett, but its evolution is similar. Wiglett evolves into a new Pokémon called Wugtrio, which has a similar model to Dugtrio. Three Wigletts appear conjoined in a central point, with all three eels poking their heads from the same lump of ground.


The leaked image offers little in terms of information, such as whether this was found in the wild or in a trainer battle, which would give fans a bit more information to be gleaned from the data. As Wiglett’s Pokédex data has not been revealed just yet, with its move types and Pokédex number, so Wugtrio remains very much a mystery for the time being outside of its official model. How, or when, Wugtrio evolves from Wiglett is currently not known by the community,

Fans need to note that, when it comes to leaks, it’s best to treat them as little more than rumors until verified. For Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, fans should wait until the developer or publisher (The Pokémon Company or Nintendo, respectively) authenticate the claims. Alternatively, they can verify the leaks’ accuracy when Pokémon Scarlet and Violet releases for the Nintendo Switch on November 18.
