How do Diglett and Digtrio use Scratch, Slash and Cut? They don't have any claws! Do they have claws underground?

*yawn*
Hmm how else would those pokemon be able to dig through all that dirt?
Oh second thought, I don't want to know XD.

Bottom line is they must have some kinda of appendage to dig themselves through rock and dirt, so logically they might as well have claws.

We'd kinda have to know what Diglett look like below the ground first

Hm, I always imagine it as a worm kinda. But obviosly it'd have to have claws. We don't see diglet on the show often. Rarely actually. Hmmmm... ::thinks about it:: maybe right below the ground level, it has four feet with claws (i'm imagining the star mole thing, who's nose looks like a star) lol, I dunno.

Better question to ask: how does it use aerial ace o.o;

At least if you're rushing at the enemy at an extremely high speed (which they do have) and stretch the head out to touch the enemy this way, the speed adds quite a bit of force... perhaps it slashes that way *making stuff up* o.o;

I thought they used their teeth.

I thought they used their teeth.
if that's the case, it would be crunch and bite ^_^;

Hmm... if there's 3 heads... does that mean Dugtrio gets to use Crunch 3 times every turn? Hmm... even with that crappy sp.att, attacking so many times with such a high powered move makes it pretty powerful! ^^;

... sure there was no cheat used, or metrenome resulting in fly? o.o;

Doduo & Dodrio can fly because they are birds with wings!
In the pokedex in a version it says they can fly bud not well

Wings? Where?

They supposedly have wings but in Stadium 1/2/Colosseum they run and start to hover. They look like Yoshi when they do that (you know when Yoshi hovers for a bit by kicking his feet). What's weirder is when a Diglett, Dugtrio, or Onix uses Fly in Stadium 1/2...

And I've also thought that they may have had sharp teeth and used it for scratching ever since R/B.

Diglett and Dugtrio have Arena Trap and not Sharpedo's ability... (which is the only reason why the Wobuffet/Dugtrio combo works)

I would love to see how they can fly across Houen/anywhere... Real life chicken has wings, right? Let's see them fly across 2 blocks then.

Diglett/Dugtrio are in this game though. However, questions like these are usually in the Pokemon General section...

Well, if a Dugtrio is just three conjoined moles, then it must have some way of digging around in the ground. They wouldn't use their heads, as they would bang into something and give themselves brain damage. But if they did have claws, they would be able to dig around in the ground and everything.
The thing is though, where would the claws be? They wouldn't be underground, as then it would be extremely difficult to use the attcks mrntioned in the title. I'm thinking that the claws are small, but near where the body connects to the ground. That way they can use attacks, and dig around in real life.

When do Diglett, Dugtrio and Onix use Fly in Pkmn Stadium 1/2?

Intuition

When you have used cheats or when you use metronome!.. :surprised

I'm guessing they have claws, but for the most part they're underground and concealing them. Doesn't Dugtrio also use Slash?

I've always seen Dugtrio as one of the more statistically-raped fully evolved Pokemon. Obviously the high Speed is great, but low defences + TERRIBLE HP = eh? Even it's Attack is a bit so-so for a defenceless fighter.

Possibly the weirdest of them all though, is the Mr Mime/Gardevoir with Magical Leaf combo in FR/LG. Where the he|| does Mr Mime fire a leaf from? XD

Dugtrio is one of the best choice band users imho ;p Plus he makes a great combo with Wobbuffet. Let wobbuffet use encore first. If the opponent is caught using encore with a move that does no damage, switch in to Dugtrio and kill. If it's anything else, let Wobby counter/coat away! (both of them knowing auto-mean look is so cool XD)

I don't even do any direct attack with Mr. Mime (special sponge for me), and Gardevoir has better stuff to do such as tbolt/psychic and so on ;p

Actually I find them so frail these days. Fake out from a Hariyama took almost half on ones health; most things can take it down in one strike. Its just being caught off guard by on that does you in.

Frostweaver

Dugtrio lives on speed... anything faster than it/freaky banded cham with fake out/extremespeed/quick attack kills it in one hit... It's all or nothing.

Plus... Dugtrio has always been part of the UU rank...

A little question??? How does Diglett/Dugtrio and rock type pokemon like Golem fight while using surf or dive??? Shouldn't them "autodestruct" themselves???

Diglett and crew can learn Mimic and get Fly that way.

Why not just say how come the poison from Victreebel don't flow into its own circuit and kill the plant part of itself?

Answer: they can manage in their own ways... just be quiet and continue those thunderbolting Starmie abuse while they last =D
