Diggersby is a Normal & Ground Pokémon which evolves from Bunnelby. It is vulnerable to Fighting, Water, Grass and Ice moves. Diggersby's strongest moveset is Quick Attack & Hyper Beam and it has a Max CP of 1,509.
"With their powerful ears, they can heft boulders of a ton or more with ease. They can be a big help at construction sites."
Mud Shot features superior energy generation, letting Diggersby access its charge moves sooner. Quick Attack falls behind in energy gains and offers stronger Normal-type damage, but this is neutral at best and can't be Super Effective vs anything, making it generally inferior.
Earthquake costs a lot of energy, but benefits from STAB and provides powerful Ground-type coverage. Fire Punch is recommended for its cheaper energy cost, allowing better shield-baiting and pressure, while also covering the weakness to Grass and Ice-type Pokemon. Hyper Beam can be used over Earthquake to to surprise and threaten Flying-type opponents, but it is expensive and weakens Diggersby's matchup against Ghost types. Dig is entirely outclassed by Earthquake.
Thanks to its enormous bulk and unique type combination, Diggersby finds a role as a reliable corebreaker to various Ghost-, Poison- and Steel-type Pokemon. Common targets include Sableye, Trevenant, Nidoqueen, Galarian Stunfisk, and Bastiodon, and many teams feature a combination of these Pokemon. Access to Fire Punch lets Diggersby further stand out among other Ground-type Pokemon by providing it with a reliable way of denting Grass-type Pokemon, although it is often not enough to outright win the match up.
Diggersby's primary downsides are its very exploitable weaknesses and inability to threaten most Flying-type Pokemon. It struggles against metagame staples such as Swampert, Walrein, and Medicham, and is almost completely incapable of threatening Altaria or Mandibuzz.
Diggersby has inadequate stats to compete outside of Great League.
Diggersby isn't an Easter Bunny, but it would still give its opponents free wins.
