Players wondering how to evolve Applin into its newest evolution, Dipplin, in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet The Teal Mask DLC, will need to hunt down a brand-new item.

Applin, the adorable apple-like Pokemon, has previously only had 2 other evolutions, Flapple and Appletun. Fortunately, The Teal Mask DLC for Scarlet & Violet introduced a third evolution called Dipplin.

Below, we explain exactly how to evolve Applin into Dipplin and all of Dipplin’s new moves, abilities, and stats.

How to Evolve Applin into Dipplin

To evolve Applin into Dipplin, you need to give it a Syrupy Apple from the Other Items section in your Bag.

Syrupy Apples can be purchased for 500 coins at a stand in the Mossfell Confluence, which is located on the bottom right of the Kitakami map (see image below).

This is the only way to evolve Applin into Dipplin. There are two other types of apple-based items, which are Sweet Apple and Tart Apple, and these evolve Applin into other forms.

  • Tart Apple – Flapple
  • Sweet Apple – Appletun

You can find both Sweet Apples and Tart Apples at Apple Farm next to Mossui Town in Kitakami.

Additionally, Dipplin has a brand-new move called Syrup Bomb. It is a Grass-type Special Attack that damages the target and causes their Speed stat to lower each turn for three turns.
