841 Flapple
It ate a sour apple, and that induced its evolution. In its cheeks, it stores an acid capable of causing chemical burns.

8412 Gigantamax Flappletun
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


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.
