Are you wondering how to evolve Applin into Flapple Appletun, or Dipplin in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet? This Pokémon first appeared in Pokémon Sword and Shield. Since then, it has made a reappearance in Scarlet and Violet. It has even gotten a new evolution as part of the Teal Mask DLC.
Applin is a unique Pokemon in the sense that it has three potential evolutions, the fast and strong Flapple which focuses on the speed and attack stat, the slow but tanky Appletun which focuses on the defense and special attack stat, and the hard-hitting and enemy-slowing Pokémon Dipplin.
Applin is just one Pokémon out of hundreds that can evolve in Scarlet and Violet. Make sure you know how to evolve every Pokémon. This guide will show you how to evolve APplin into Flapple, Appletun, and Dipplin in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.
How to Get Applin in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet
Applin is a Pokemon that’s almost always found hanging on trees. After all, apples do grow on trees, right? Therefore, you have to dash into trees using your version’s legendary Pokemon by pressing in the left control stick on your Joycon or pro controller. If you don’t have the dash ability yet, then you’ll have to first defeat the Stony Cliff Titan.
After dashing into a tree, look around it to see if you were lucky enough to knock down an Applin, and if you were good luck catching it. Although Applin can pretty much spawn in any grassy area with trees, we’ve had the most luck finding them in East Province’s Area One.
If you want to catch more than 1 Applin and struggling to find one from the trees, then you can breed the Applin you currently have with a Ditto. To breed your Applin, you need to have a picnic and
How to Evolve Applin into Flapple, Appletun, or Dipplin in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet
Evolving Applin to either Flapple, Appletun, or Dipplin is fairly simple, and all it requires you to do is for you to have beaten the third Gym leader. This will allow you to purchase the Tart Apple and Sweet Apple. The final item is the Syrupy Apple which is part of the DLC.
There are no level or other special requirements to evolving Applin, as all you have to do is use one of the two evolutionary items on your little apple Pokemon. One thing to keep in mind is that as soon as you use one of the items, it’ll be consumed and you’ll have to buy another one to use on a different Applin.
Where to Get Tart Apple and Sweet Apple
As soon as you beat the third gym, simply go to your nearest Delibird Presents (Mesagoza, Cascarrafa, or Levincia) and purchase the apple you want based on what you want your Applin to evolve into.
- Tart Apple is used on Applin to evolve it into Flapple
- Sweet Apple is used on Applin to evolve it into Appletun
Regardless of what item you buy, both of them will set you back by a little over 2,000 Poke Dollars.
How to get the Syrupy Apple
The Syrupy Apple isn’t purchased in the Paldea Region like the other items. Instead, you need to travel to the Kitakami region. Once there, head to the area called the Mossfell Confluence to the west of Mossui Town.
Here, you can find a vending machine selling Syrupy Apples for 500 Poke Dollars. Giving this item to the grass and dragon-type Pokémon will evolve Applin into Dipplin.
