I Am Freaking Obsessed With Shiny Dipplin in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet

Dipplin is one of the new Pokémon added to Pokémon Scarlet and Violet with The Teal Mask DLC. And when I first saw it when the Hidden Treasure of Area Zero was revealed, I thought it was cute. Nothing special, but I’d still go out of my way to get it, I told myself. So that’s exactly what I did when The Teal Mask was released on September 12, 2023.

I was lucky enough to catch a Shiny Applin in the Pokémon Scarlet and Violet base game earlier this year, and I figured I’d save evolving it for The Teal Mask so I could see what Shiny Dipplin looks like because while I love Flapple and Appletun, their Shiny forms don’t do much for me. Needless to say, I love it. It’s SO CUTE.

Did you ever have caramel apples on Halloween, the ones that were so hard on the outside that you’d be scared of cracking your teeth? Well, that’s what Shiny Dipplin is—a sugary, sweet apple dipped in lashings of thick, golden caramel. OMG. I would literally die for it.

Just look at it. I’m sorry, but isn’t that just the most adorable thing you’ve ever seen? If The Pokémon Center doesn’t release a plush of Dipplin’s Shiny form like it did with Shiny Hisuian Zorua, we riot.

If you want to try and get one for yourself but don’t know where to find the Applin evolution, here’s how to get Dipplin in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet: The Teal Mask. Bagging yourself a Shiny won’t be easy, but it’s definitely worth the effort.
