In the latest Pokémon Sword and Shield expansion, Isle of Armor, you’ll start your adventure off early with a simple but time consuming side quest. As you make your way from the station to the dojo right behind it, you’ll come across a bridge leading you to the martial arts facility.
However, before you get to cross, you run across an Alolan Diglett blocking your path. As you unearth it, a friendly trainer comes by to tell you that this Pokémon is one of many currently scattered across the small island. After a quick conversation, he asks you to take the time to uncover the location of the other 150 hiding throughout the various biomes.
To spot an Alolan Diglett, look for their telltale hair sticking out of the ground. Doing so might be a bit challenging as their little locks look like blades of grass from afar.
Each section of the Isle of Armor has various amounts of Diglett hidden around. As you find them, the Diglett will return to their trainer and the game will tell you how many more Pokémon are left in that particular area. In this guide, we’ll have detailed maps for each section of the Isle of Armor showing you the location of each Diglett accompanied by a screenshot and explanation for where to find them.
