To evolve Applin in Pokemon Sword & Shield, head over to Hammerlocke. From the entrance into the city, head left and keep going until you cross the wooden drawbridge. Continue left and find the boy in a red hoodie just before you go through the next gate. Speak to him and let him borrow your Applin. In return, you’ll get a Tart Apple (Shield) or a Sweet Apple (Sword). So, yeah, these forms are exclusive to their respective versions, and you have to trade to get the one you can’t get. Anyway, here are the evolutions of Applin:

  • Applin – Appletun (with Sweet Apple, only in Pokemon Sword)
