Dipplin is both a new evolution for Applin and a new Grass and Dragon-type Pokémon introduced in The Teal Mask DLC for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.
If you want to add Dipplin to your Pokédex, you first need to find a Syrupy Apple in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.
To help you add a new entry to your Kitakami Pokédex, we cover how to evolve Applin into Dipplin and the Syrupy Apple location below.

Where to find Applin in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet
Applin can be found in both the Paldea and Kitakami regions of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.
In Paldea, you can find Applin in the following locations:
Meanwhile, in Kitakami, Applin unsurprisingly spawn around the apple orchards:
You may even find a Terastallized Applin if you’re lucky, especially in the Apple Hills of Kitakami.
Since Applin is a pretty small Pokémon, it’s a good idea to see if it appears on your Pokémon radar. You can also eat a Sandwich or another type of food which will boost your Encounter Power with either Grass or Dragon-type Pokémon.
We found two groups of Applins in Apple Hills after boosting our Encounter Power with Grass-types by eating a Strawberry Shaved Ice from the Kitakami festival.
How to evolve Applin into Dipplin in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet
Evolving Applin into Dipplin in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet is actually pretty easy - all you need is a Syrupy Apple.
Once you’ve got a Syrupy Apple, make sure the Applin you want to evolve is in your team. Now open your Bag and head to the 'Other Items' pocket where you’ll find the Syrupy Apple.
Select the 'Use this item' option for the Syrupy Apple followed by selecting your Applin to begin the evolution! Congratulations - you now have a Dipplin.
Our The Teal Mask walkthrough will help you complete the first part of The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero DLC, but make sure you know how to start it first. When visiting Kitakami it's a good idea to know how to get Sinistcha, Dipplin, Bloodmoon Ursaluna and The Loyal Three so you can complete the Kitakami Pokédex. Our Pokémon Scarlet and Violet walkthrough can take you through the main campaign - including The First Day of School, Victory Road, Starfall Street, Path of Legends, The Way Home and the final boss. Elsewhere, we can help with the Normal Gym test Secret Item menu,EXP farming and shiny Pokémon. When it comes to individual Pokémon, we can help with Gimmighoul, Pawmot, Brambleghast, Annihilape, Farigiraf, Dudunsparce, Armarouge and Ceruledge.
Syrupy Apple location in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet
So the question now is, where can you find a Syrupy Apple in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet? Thankfully, they’re quite easy to find and you can get one whenever you like - as long as you have the cash for it, of course.
To get a Syrupy Apple, you need to head to the southern-eastern corner of Kitakami. There you’ll find a small orchard, shed and Syrupy Apple stand.
One Syrupy Apple will cost £500 and you can buy as many as you like.
There’s also a chance that Applins will spawn around this orchard, so, if you still need to catch one, you might not have to go very far after buying your Syrupy Apple.
Good luck adding Dipplin to your Pokédex!
