Pokédex entries

Flapple

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

Gigantamax

Sword Under the influence of Gigantamax energy, it produces much more sweet nectar, and its shape has changed to resemble a giant apple.
Shield 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.
