Since the dawn of man -- or since Pokemon Red & Blue was released, whichever came first -- we have looked to the stars and wondered one question: WTF is going on with the bottom half of Diglett's body? We can see the part that sticks out of the ground, but what lies beneath? Luckily, artists across the internet have put up hypothesis after hypothesis to explain the greatest mystery of our time:

Theory 4: Diglett is...Actually Reasonable-Looking?

And this is the most controversial theory: that Diglett is just a mostly-normal looking Pokemon without anything super crazy or unexpected hiding underneath the ground.

The good people at DidYouKnowGaming put together this simple image to clearly illustrate what Diglett probably looks like, and the evidence in favor of this theory.

And then DeviantArtist gnooroopofthegerudo went and showed everyone up with a scientific analysis of IRL Digletts (I know Digletts don't exist IRL, but if they did, this is the guy who you'd get to study them)

But the simple Diglett (as imagined by yiyang1989) is the one that probably exists in the games. They may not look like much, but let's see your Raichu use Thunderbolt against 'em.
