It can dig through the ground at a speed of 30 mph. It could give a car running aboveground a good race.

Drilbur is like the Sandshrew of Gen V, though it evolves into Ground/Steel instead of pure Ground; Drilbur is the only pure Ground type introduced in Gen V.
Even though its claws are together in the official art and the sprites, in the anime, it’s seen to be able to spread its claws apart. I like how happy it looks in the sprites.
Stat-wise, it has good Attack and Speed, and decent HP.
