While the idea of squeezing out an Applin for its juice is more than unsettling, Applin Juice exists as a crafting resource in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet for specific TM recipes. Applin is a Dragon- and Grass-type that appears in multiple locations across Paldea and can evolve into Flapple or Appletun, depending on the evolution item it receives. As an Apple Core Pokémon, Applin might be found on the ground in forests but tends to spawn on the branches of trees. To get this pocket monster to fall from the branches of a tree, Trainers must ensure they have unlocked the Dash Ability for their Koraidon or Miraidon.
Farming Applin Juice in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet
Accordingly, to farm Applin Juice effectively in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, Trainers will need the Mount Dash Ability, which is unlocked by defeating the Stony Cliff Titan: Klawf. Next, Applins are a rare spawn, meaning that eating Encounter Power Sandwiches is highly recommended for a boosted encounter rate.
Based on research by Game8, the best sandwiches for farming Applin Juice in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet are the Great Klawf Claw Sandwich, the Great Avocado Sandwich, and the Great Cheese Sandwich. These three sandwiches offer an increased encounter chance for Grass- or Dragon-type pocket monsters. Therefore, players must eat one of these Sandwiches and then use their Dash ability on the trees at the following locations:
- Tagtree Thicket
- East Province (Area One)
- North Province (Area One)
- South Province (Areas Two and Four)
- West Province (Area Three)
To further improve the efficiency at which Trainers get the juice from Wild Applins, using Applin’s counters, Ice-type pocket monsters, via Let’s Go mode will ensure swift farming. Excellent picks for the job would include Glaceon, Beartic, Glalie, or Cetitan.
Once players have accumulated enough Applin Juice and other required resources in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, they can craft TM146 (Grass Pledge) and TM169 (Draco Meteor). To get the recipe for Grass Pledge, players must explore the large island off the coast of the East Province (Area Two). Swimming is required to reach this location. On the other hand, Draco Meteor is obtained as a reward for completing the Starfall Street storyline. Players must speak with Penny in Mesagoza to receive this TM.
Pokémon Scarlet and Violet are available on the Nintendo Switch.
