The Pokémon Company International has revealed Dipplin as a newly discovered evolution of Applin that will appear in The Teal Mask, which is the first downloadable content for Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet.
Category: Candy Apple
Pokémon Type: Grass and Dragon
Ability: Supersweet Syrup and Gluttony
This newly discovered Evolution of Applin is distinct from Flapple and Appletun. The head sticking out seems to belong to one of two separate creatures, while the tail belongs to the other. Both creatures help each other out from within their shared apple.
Dipplin coat their apples with syrup produced within their bodies. The layers of fragrant syrup beguile opponents.
One move that Dipplin can learn, Syrup Bomb, is a Grass-type special attack that causes an explosion of syrup. This move coats the target in syrup and causes its Speed stat to lower each turn for three turns.
Dipplin’s Supersweet Syrup Ability appears for the first time in Part 1: The Teal Mask. When Dipplin first enters battle, the scent of its syrup spreads across the battlefield, lowering the evasiveness of opposing Pokémon.
Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet’s The Hidden Treasures of Area Zero Part 1: The Teal Mask is planned for release on 13 September 2023, and Part 2: The Indigo Disk will release in Winter 2023.
