Applin.png
It spends its entire life inside an apple. It hides from its natural enemies, bird Pokémon, by pretending it's just an apple and nothing more
~ Pokedex Pokemon Sword
As soon as it's born, it burrows into an apple. Not only does the apple serve as its food source, but the flavor of the fruit determines its evolution.
~ Pokedex Pokemon Shield

Eating a sweet apple caused its evolution. A nectarous scent wafts from its body, luring in the bug Pokémon it preys on.
~ Pokédex Pokemon Sword
Its body is covered in sweet nectar, and the skin on its back is especially yummy. Children used to have it as a snack.
~ Pokédex Pokemon Shield

841 Flapple.png
It ate a sour apple, and that induced its evolution. In its cheeks, it stores an acid capable of causing chemical burns.
~ Pokédex Pokemon Sword
It flies on wings of apple skin and spits a powerful acid. It can also change its shape into that of an apple.
~ Pokédex Pokemon Shield

It blasts its opponents with massive amounts of sweet, sticky nectar, drowning them under the deluge.
~ Pokédex Pokemon Sword
Due to Gigantamax energy, this Pokémon's nectar has thickened. The increased viscosity lets the nectar absorb more damage than before.
~ Pokédex Pokemon Shield

8412 Gigantamax Flappletun.png
Under the influence of Gigantamax energy, it produces much more sweet nectar, and its shape has changed to resemble a giant apple.
~ Pokédex Pokemon Sword
If it stretches its neck, the strong aroma of its nectar pours out. The scent is so sickeningly sweet that one whiff makes other Pokémon faint.
~ Pokédex Pokemon Shield

Summary

Applin is a small pokemon who spends his time inside his apple, hiding from predators until it finds a way to evolve. Appletun is one of two possible evolutions for Applin, which is achieved by feeding Applin a Sweet Apple. Like Flapple, Applin is one of few pokemon capable of Gigantamaxing. Curiously however, unlike other Gigantamax Pokémon, Flapple and Applin have an identical G-Max appearance, though they still differ slightly in abilities. Flapple is one of two possible evolutions for Applin, which is achieved by feeding Applin a Tart Apple. Like Appletun, Flapple is one of few pokemon capable of Gigantamaxing. Curiously however, unlike other Gigantamax Pokémon, Flapple and Applin have an identical G-Max appearance, though they still differ slightly in abilities.
