Similar to Brawlers' Cave, it's pretty easy to find the Diglett here, since the cavern is more restrictive and there's less complicated terrain around. To find every single Diglett, you will need a bike that can travel over water. If you don't have it, you might want to come back later so you can gather all the Diglett in one go. It's up to you!

Check behind the rock on the left.3/7: From Diglett 2, head deeper into this part of the cavern. There will be three Pokémon Den here. Check towards the left for Number 3.4/7: Go back to Diglett 1, where the path splits in multiple directions. Head up the slope along the middle. As the ground levels off, check immediately to the left. It's next to a somewhat pointy rock.

75+ Diglett have been saved; that means you're past the halfway mark! To celebrate this important milestone, you can pick up an Alolan Exeggutor. Can anything even top that? Maybe you can just go home right now...
