Pokédex entries

Appletun

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

Gigantamax

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