In the anime

Apricorns have only appeared once in the anime, in Going Apricorn!. In this episode, Kurt helped Ash, Misty, and Brock to harvest Apricorns, making Poké Balls from the three White Apricorns, two Blue Apricorns, and one Black Apricorn that were found and giving Brock, Misty, and Ash each a Fast Ball, Brock a Heavy Ball, and Ash and Misty each a Lure Ball for later use.

In the manga

An Apricorn in Pokémon Adventures

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Apricorns were first mentioned in Teddiursa's Picnic, in which Kurt used various Apricorns to make special Poké Balls. Gold attempted and failed to eat the fruit of an Apricorn. Apricorns were later mentioned in Out-Odding Oddish, in which Gold was seen running after adding Apricorns into the Apriblender so the Apricorns would mix to make Aprijuice.

Trivia

  • Because of the length of the word "Apricorn", only the Red Apricorn is able to have its full color name in all games it appears in, with the other six being forced to have abbreviated versions due to an item name's 12-character limit (including spaces).
