In the core series games


The player can use Nectar on an Oricorio to change it to the corresponding style. This consumes the Nectar.


In Alola, each Nectar can be obtained twice per day from a particular island's meadow, except on Akala Island due to its lack of a meadow.

In Paldea, Nectar is sold at Delibird Presents shops across the region.

Yellow Nectar in the anime

Yellow Nectar appeared in A Seasoned Search!. It was one of the ingredients that Mallow needed to prepare a dish at her family's restaurant, so she and Ash set out to find some. To find it, they followed a Baile Style Oricorio to a hidden meadow, where they saw it sip Yellow Nectar from a flower and change into Pom-Pom Style Oricorio. Mallow took some Nectar from a flower as well, obtaining the ingredient she needed.
