If you are playing The Isle of Armor DLC for Pokémon Sword & Pokémon Shield, chances are you will have stumbled on an Alolan Diglett or two.
The first Alolan Diglett you will find is in the Fields of Honor, just before the bridge that takes you to the Dojo. After talking to the Diglett, it’s trainer will appear and thank you for finding it. The trainer tells you that he has another 150 Diglett that have disappeared and hidden all over the Isle of Armor.
Should you choose to find them, you can be rewarded Alolan Pokémon for your trouble. Just return to the Diglett Collector every now and again and he will gift you a Pokémon depending on how many Alolan Diglett you have found. We have listed the Gift Pokémon below and how many Alolan Diglett you will need to find before you can receive them.
5 Diglett – Alolan Meowth
10 Diglett – Alolan Slowpoke

Rough Alolan Diglett Guide:
This is by no means an exact guide to finding all of the Alolan Digletts. It is simply a list of where I have found Digletts so far in each region. I hope it may serve you to find any Digletts that you are missing. I have also noted whether it was night time when I found the Diglett in case time makes a difference in whether they appear or not.
