Very little in terms of specifics were given about the new Pokémon in the presentation, apart from that it lives on the beach, and that it has a long wriggly body. While the academics in the video initially speculate about if it could be some variety of Diglett due to its obvious visual similarities, the video goes on to explicitly state that it's merely a "coincidence" that it looks like Diglett, and that it is indeed an entirely distinct Pokémon, with its own distinct behaviours and diet.
Wiglett apparently boasts an exceptional sense of smell, and is able to pick up scents from over 60 feet away. The Pokémon has a naturally cautious and skittish disposition, with Wiglett burrowing into the sand to hide when they notice the scent of other Pokémon in their surroundings.
Wigglet feeds from the ocean, poking part of its body out of the sands to feed. Just like Diglett, it's unclear exactly what the rest of its body looks like, or how long the Pokemon might be.
