I don't believe Diglett or Dugtrio have a mouth
Where would it be ? And I think even developers don't know !

If Diglett has a mouth, I think it is right under the nose, unseeable.

I agree with Vappy here on that it probably does have a mouth, but that its nose covers it. It wouldn't really make sense if he didn't have one then again though this is Pokémon we are talking about lol

I've always believed that the big red thing is their nose and their mouth is... well, I never gave it much thought, actually I don't use Diglett at all actually *faints*

My question is, how do they use Scratch/Slash? I don't recall seeing anything closely resembling claws on them...

Well they're ground Pokemon so perhaps their skin is rougher than it looks and they scratch the opponent by swiping them with their body!

I remember a picture of someone from the anime holding a Diglett...they just put their hands underneath the dirt and picked it up. Now I wanna know what that last inch of Diglett looks like.

Maybe Diglett evolved from Weedle. I don't mean evolved like Pokemon-evolved, I mean like Darwin-evolved. Some Weedle were living in caves and had to adapt to survive in the ground-based area so over time they slowly became Diglett, and the nose is the only thing that survived to tell the tale!

Everybody thinks the worst of these designers. What you call lazy I call GENIUS.

Okay this is actually a really really cool idea. Let's consider the possibility that in the Pokémon World the taxonomy is vastly different. Larvae, worms and moles in the real world may be completely unrelated but seeing as they are similar in ways, they could possibly be related in the PokéWorld (I mean, let's face it Pokémon is just preposterous). Now consider the similarities Diglett and Weedle have. They are somewhat long-bodied with little shape to speak of, and they have very small (unnoticeable in Diglett's case) appendages. Also I think base stats are a good way to detect relation between Pokémon so let's look at those. Excluding HP, Weedle and Diglett both have Speed as their highest stat and Attack as their second highest, as well as very low Defenses and hugely low base stat totals (even considering their Little Cup-ness). I don't count HP in this case since Diglett's low HP could be contributed to its general thinner and more streamlined shape.

. . . I don't know maybe I'm not really onto anything right now. xDD

Not sure about Diglett, but my best guess about Dugtrio is this
Spoiler:



Anyways, I agree with Andy & Ineffable, this sounds cool, and possible (but again,in Pokemon,what isn't?)

Then Andy I should introduce you to the word recycling. Aaaand, there's also the other fact that they could have accidentally made the noses the same without meaning to do so.

I suppose if you were the designer that is what you would intend it for. But that is not what I think of it, nor will it ever be.

Everybody says it's a good thing to recycle, it saves the planet. The Pokemon creators are being environmentally friendly, and you should never fault them for that!

I don't really mind ideas recycling, that is, when it's not obvious

You beat me to it!

Anyway, disregarding its benefit to the environment and that it grants you theoretically infinite Sitrus Berries / Focus Sashes, there's nothing really wrong with recycling ideas. As long as you're not making tonnes of clones of the same Pokémon, it's quite nice and cute and fun to spot. And if an idea works once, it's a good idea to try and use it again. Nothing at all wrong with little similarities.

Also, if laziness is a crime, I and most of my friends are class A felons. :3

I'm top criminal then ...
Anyways, you're forgetting the rip-off rodents, they are one of the biggest examples of recycling
While they aren't very good, they certainly are okay as Pokemon
As I said before, I don't really care for ideas recycling,but sometimes it gets ... dull

I am not blaming them for recycling ideas. Nor am I against the thought. I actually think that it was a creative move. But you always have to point me out as the bad guy. ;~;

Okay, new topic please. xD

Anyone interested with the upcoming Pokemon movie; Kyurem vs The Sacred Swordsmen? I think it would be an interesting watch, unless you don't watch these kinds of movies anymore. :(

I haven't seen any of the Pokemon movies since the third, because they stopped putting them on in cinemas I really wish they'd start doing that again. Make it a big deal, offer the promotional Pokemon cards that you get by going to see the movie! AND HAVE THE PIKACHU'S VACATION MOVIES BEFOREHAND OMG.
