A daunting challenge awaits players on the Isle of Armor in the new Pokémon Sword and Shield Expansion Pass released June 17, 2020, and it's not the new storyline. As you approach the dojo in one of the first moments on the Isle of Armor, you run into an Alolan Diglett in the middle of the pathway of the bridge. A trainer then asks you if you can find all of his Digletts, all 151 of them.
If you choose to go Diglett hunting during your time on the Isle of Armor, you will want to look for the little hairs sticking out of the ground. To send it back to the trainer, just press A standing next to these little hairs. Wandering around looking for these takes time, so I gathered the location of all the Digletts here for you!

Is it worth the reward?
The Diglett trainer does give you Alolan Pokémon with hidden abilities in exchange for sending these Digletts back to him. You get them after finding a few certain amounts of Digletts. Here are the Pokemon and their hidden abilites you're rewarded with per designated number of Digletts:
- 5 = Meowth - Rattled
- 10 = Slowpoke - Regenerator
- 20 = Vulpix - Snow Warning
- 30 = Sandshrew - Slush Rush
- 40 = Raichu - Surge Surfer
- 50 = Marowak - Rock Head
- 75 = Exeggutor - Harvest
- 100 = Depends on chosen starter, (Grookey) Rowlet - Long Reach, (Scorbunny) Litten - Intimidate, (Sobble) Popplio - Liquid Voice
- 151 = Diglett - Sand Force
In my opinion it's cool to be able to have these Pokémon in Alolan form! If you're all about catching your Pokémon genuinely, they're a good reason for keeping an eye out for those little hairs while exploring the new digs. However, you could always choose to trade for them if you'd rather not do the work.
