Diglett first appeared as Emile's first HM Slave, so he could use HM01 Cut. She was also a member during the Lt Surge Gym Battle as presented on the information scene on Diglett's and Meow Mix's Current Moves, but was never used during the initial battle.
Diglett's final appearance and only onscreen battle was against a wild Dugtrio Emile encountered in Diglett's Cave, which had already knocked out Meow Mix and Khold. Emile aimed to catch the Dugtrio, but Diglett's Magnitude 9 attack while the opposing Ground-Type was underground knocked it out, causing Diglett to grow to Level 19. After this, Emile replaced Diglett with Slave.
While Slave replaced Diglett as an more effective HM Slave, at the begging of this part we can see Diglett use Cut to cut down a tree to continue Kanto Route 9.

Post-Let's Play Fate
In May of 2016, Emile revealed that an unspecified accident deleted his FireRed save file shown in the LP. Consequently, Diglett and the rest of Emile's team were lost forever.
- Diglett was the first of Emile's many HM Slaves.
- Diglett was a rare case of an actual temporary team member.
- Diglett was the first Pokémon Emile caught off-screne.
