It has black slits for nostrils on the tip of its muzzle. It has a large hump on its back with a several overlapping stripes that resemble an apple pie's crust. It has red and green leaves on the top of its pie-like back. It has short, bulky legs with paws, and a stout tail.

Trivia

  • Appletun and Flapple have physically identical Gigantamax forms, but they are still treated as different Pokémon as they have distinct Pokédex entries and G-Max Moves.
  • Appletun and its evolutionary family are the only Pokémon that are in the Grass and Dragon Egg Groups.

Origin

Appletun may be based on Ladon, a dragon from Greek mythology that guards the golden apples in the Garden of the Hesperides. It may also draw inspiration from the biblical serpents, sometimes referred to as dragons, one of which persuades Eve to eat from the forbidden fruit of the Tree of the knowledge of good and evil, most of the times depicted as an apple. Appletun may also be based on the tale of Bel and the Dragon, about a dragon that bursts open after being fed a cake. It may also be inspired by apple pies and tortoises. Its Gigantamax form appears to be based on a caramel apple.

Name origin

Appletun may be derived from Appleton, a toponym that means "an orchard" or "place where apples grow". Appletun may also be a combination of apple and ton (referencing its bulk). It may also be a play on apple turnover.

Taruppuru may be a combination of tart, 怠い tarui (sluggish), たっぷり tappuri (onomatopoetic word for plenty), and apple.
