Turned Into Aprijuice

In previous installments in the franchise, Apricorns were also able to be blended to create Aprijuice. The effect of the Aprijuice varied depending on what type of Apricorn it was made with. This feature does not seem to be in Sword and Shield.

Apricorns - How To Get

Shake Down From Trees

Shake Down From Trees

The only way to get Apricorns in Pokemon Sword and Shield is to shake them down from berry trees found all over the island. You will get a mix of Apricorns and Berries, but don't shake too much or you might shake down a Pokemon!

Exclusive To The Isle Of Armor & Crown Tundra

Exclusive to the Isle of Armor

Apricorns are only available for players who have the Isle of Armor & Crown Tundra expansion. It's possible that trading could be an option, but previously, Pokemon holding Apricorns cannot be traded so they cannot be shared between players.

Complete Isle Of Armor Pokedex

Complete Isle Of Armor Pokedex

The lady who offers to show Pokedex entries for 100 Watts will apparently go on to sell you Apricorns for 100 W after you complete the Isle of Armor Pokedex. We were able to confirm this only on one file that has a full Pokedex completed, so we're inclined to say that is the main condition for this, but we are not 100% sure.

Getting Rare Poke Balls Is Random

Getting Rare Poke Ball Is Random

There's a chance you can receive a random rare Poke Ball when you feed 4 Apricorns to the Cram-o-matic. However, all evidence seems to suggest that this is random. We will continue to look into this.

Poke Ball Is Determined By Apricorn Color

You can feed Apricorns to the Cram-o-matic machine to get a variety of Poke Balls. However, note that rare balls have a very low probability of showing up. Also, Safari and Sport balls can be obtained using any color Apricorn.

We ran tests on the Cram-o-matic a total of 350 times and received a mere 6 rare Poke Balls. Though still under verification, the rate of getting rare Poke Balls appears to be somewhere around 1-2%.

Here's how it works, every pure combination of apricorns, (full blue, red, etc.) Offers a 1% chance at 2 rare apricon balls (dream, lure, etc) 2% for less rare, and literal bulks of rates for the usuals,(poké) mixing halves those rates
