After months of anticipation Part 1: The Teal Mask, is available now in Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet and with it, players can now access the new region of Kitakami. As long as players have begun the Treasure Hunt, they can access Kitakami at any point in their adventure and with a new region to explore, with it comes new Pokémon to catch and in this little guide, we’ll be helping you turn your Applin into Dipplin:
How to Evolve Applin into Dipplin | Pokémon Scarlet & Pokémon Violet
The first step to evolving an Applin, is to have an Applin and it should please players to know that Applin’s new evolution does not require you to catch an Applin solely from the Kitakami region. You can if you wish to do so, but it doesn’t matter if you caught your Applin in Galar, or shiny hunted/breed it in Paldea. As long as you have an Applin you wish to evolve, that Applin is good enough to get the job done.
For the second step, the evolution process is quite simple in itself. As we have seen with previous Applin evolutions, where Flapple requires the use of a Tart Apple and Appletun requires a Sweet Apple, in order to get Dipplin, another type of apple is required. Instead of Applin being required to reach a certain level whilst knowing a specific move, players need only to acquire a Syrupy Apple and present that to the Applin you wish to evolve. Once done, you are free to use your Dipplin in any manner you desire.
To obtain the Syrupy Apple, players need only to head over to the Mossfell Confluence, a small standalone house-like shop structure with no shopkeeper, where they can then purchase the Syrupy Apple from a vending machine for 500 Pokémon Dollars.
*Syrupy Apple: A peculiar apple that can make a certain species of Pokémon evolve. It’s exceptionally syrupy.
As always, we hope you found this guide helpful.
