Evolving Applin is relatively easy, as all you need is a Tart Apple from Delibird Presents to Grav Apple left and right with your Flapple. The one catch is that you can’t Gigantamax it in Paldea, so other Dragon types like Salamence are better for your competitive team.

Flapple learns the new Grass move Trailblaze, so you can increase its Speed and deal damage or Dragon Dance like in Sword and Shield.

If you use a Sweet Apple, you’ll end up with Appletun instead. Both evolutions are Grass and Dragon and can use the ability Ripen to double the effects of berries in battle. You may want to have a Fire Pokemon on your team to ward off x4 super effective Ice-type attacks or give them a Yache Berry to reduce the damage. Overall, they’re two easy new Pokedex entries after you catch a few Applin.
