Pokémon Scarlet and Violet’s Indigo Disc DLC may feature a new evolution. Fans are speculating that Diplin’s evolution may have been caused by a certain object.

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet’s Teal Mask DLC adds several new and returning Pokémon to catch. One of the most unexpected was the Deplin, a new evolution for Aplin that evolves with a special item.

The iconic syrupy apple evolves Aplin into Diplin in the Pokémon Scarlet and Violet DLC. Not only that, it is also an important part of the Unlimited Money exploit in the Hidden Treasures of Area Zero expansion.

While the Syrupy Apple is an important item for Applein’s development, another item may be even more important to the series. Diplin’s ability to hold a special item in the Pokémon Scarlet and Violet DLC has fans convinced about the potential evolution of the new Pokémon.

The item in question is Eviolite, which when placed near a Pokémon that is not fully evolved, increases the Pokémon’s Defense and Special Defense by 50%. Some players use items to boost certain Pokémon whose performance may be hindered by evolutions such as Vigoroth.

Diplin’s ability to catch Eviolite and receive item bonuses is particularly interesting since it was considered the last Pokémon of its evolutionary line. Both Flapple and Appletun are the last stages of Aplin’s evolutionary progress so this was a very safe assumption.

Interestingly, leaks from fairly reliable sources had previously suggested that Deplin would receive an evolution after the launch of Indigo Disk. Seribi Webmaster Joe Merrick Diplin put the possibility of evolution to his Twitter followers and many were convinced.

“When I first saw him, I didn’t think he looked fully grown. Now it makes sense if there is any further development after the diplin’,” said one user. “Definitely a development coming in Part 2, this is too specific of an observation,” said another.

Evolving Aplin into Diplin gives it the unique move Syrup Bomb.

Diplin has been maligned in the Pokémon community due to its imperfect appearance compared to its counterparts Flapple and Appletun. If the leaks are true and this Aviolite issue isn’t some kind of bug, then perhaps it can be redeemed with a fix.
