Hi everyone. Welcome to another Pokémon of the Week. Today we’re
reviewing Dugtrio, the mole Pokémon.
Si, I turned 20 last Saturday and I can’t think of a better
Pokémon to celebrate. I have a lot of memories of this guy. Back
in Blue Version I was training my Wartortle in Diglett’s Cave,
so yeah, I found many of these guys and thanks to them the third
Gym Leader was a piece of cake…
Dugtrio is one of the most used Pokémon out there. It has a very
good speed and attacks that go along with it. Unfortunately it
has low HP and defenses so you have to protect him very well or
is going to be useless.
Sand Veil is nothing to worry about, the true reason to use
Dugtrio is Arena Trap, it prevents switching (unless they’re
flying or with levitate ability). This means that, if used
correctly, Dugtrio is going to give you one or two free kills,
as sweet as that.
Let’s analyze two move combinations today, the classic sweeper
and something a little bit more creative…
Nature: Jolly (+ Speed, - Special attack).
Equip: Choice Band / Lum Berry.
EV´s: 252 Speed, 252 Attack, 6 Defense.
- Aerial Ace
- Rock Slide
- HP Ghost / Flying
This set +Arena Trap = Good Pokémon… Use the HP you like the
most, both of them are good in specific circumstances. If you’re
using the Bander, remember the good use of the switch.
With this one, you’re sacrificing two incredibly good attacks,
but in return, you get to make your foe suffer slowly. Toxic and
Protect are going to help you against Wobbuffet and strong water
types… At least they’ll give you some time.
When should I use this Pokémon?
Use it now, If you have tested Dugtrio’s potential you must be
as sure as me this is one good and easy to use Pokémon, if you
haven’t used it, try it, you won’t regret it…
What should I use against this Pokémon?
Some say Porygon2 is a good option; Suicune may blast this one
with luck, a Curse Snorlax or a Belly Drummer Charizard.
Fast, strong, three-headed, what else could you ask for?
Hope you enjoyed.
Ability(s): Sand Veil

Today we are reviewing the mole Pokemon, Dugtrio.
Dugtrio is one of those Pokemon that are caught just to beat Lt.
Surge. A closer look reveals that Dugtrio’s only real purpose is
to beat Surge, then sit in the PC. Why?, some people ask. The
question’s answer is simple:
Dugtrio has an amazing score in speed, but is mediocre in all
With that said, here are some battle strategies for Dugtrio:
