How to Get Apricorns Fast

Shake Trees

Along with Berries, Apricorns will fall from Berry trees on the Isle of Armor. However, if you shake the tree too many times, a Pokemon will fall out, and you'll lose all the Berries and Apricorns which fell up to that point.

Locations of All Apricorn Trees

List of Apricorn Tree Locations
Map Name Apricorn Color Number of Trees
Forest of Focus All colors 7
Fields of Honor All colors 4
Soothing Wetlands Yellow Apricorn ImageYellow Apricorn Green Apricorn ImageGreen Apricorn Pink Apricorn ImagePink Apricorn Red Apricorn ImageRed Apricorn 4
Challenge Beach Blue Apricorn ImageBlue Apricorn Black Apricorn ImageBlack Apricorn 2
Training Lowlands White Apricorn ImageWhite Apricorn 1 (Southeast area)

The tree in the southwest area of the Training Lowlands does not produce Apricorns.

Forest of Focus is a great place to farm

The Forest of Focus has seven trees which can produce Apricorns of any color. Its trees have a low ratio of Berries, so they're perfect for collecting as many Apricorns as possible in one go.

One tree of each color

There are trees in the Soothing Wetlands, Challenge Beach, and Training Lowlands which only produce one color of Apricorn. If you're looking to make a specific Poke Ball, these trees can be useful for collecting just the color you need!

From sparkling ground

Apricorns from Sparkling Ground

Like many other items, Apricorns can sometimes be found in sparkling ground, so be sure to collect it when you see it.

Trade the girl in green for 100 Watts

Apricorns from NPC

You'll sometimes find a girl wearing green who will trade you 4 of one type of Apricorn for 100 Watts. Since you can find 100 Watts by simply interacting with an inactive Den, this is a no-brainer!

It seems like the girl offering Apricorns will start appearing once you've filled out a large amount of Pokemon in your Isle of Armor PokeDex.

Note: One of our Walkthrough team members only saw her after filling in 150+ Pokemon, but the exact requirement is currently unknown!

How to Make Poke Balls

Use the Cram-o-Matic


The Cram-o-Matic in the room on the right side of the dojo can be used to change Apricorns into a variety of Poke Balls. Currently, the Poke Balls which result from using Apricorns the Cram-o-Matic seem to be random, unlike other Recipes. So to collect a variety of Poke Ball types, you'll need to get as many Apricorns as possible, without worrying about the type of Apricorn used.
