It can be very annoying. So, what you need to do is either sneak up on them by walking stealthily, or initiate the fight with them from a distance. For the latter, you need to be pretty precise. However, you can probably pull it off with a little bit of practice. That’s how we did it, anyway. If you prefer to sneak, by all means.

The new wormy Water-type Pokemon is a water version of Diglett, as you’ve probably already guessed. They are basically identical but for their type. A Wiglett evolves into Wugtrio when it reaches level 26. And, considering that you can get them fairly early on, it’s not a bad Water-type to use in the beginning stages.
