Red Apricorns appeared in Going Apricorn!, where Kurt sent Ash, Misty, and Brock to harvest some Apricorns. However, the group was caught up in one of Team Rocket's pitfall traps before they could even reach the Apricorn tree.

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

In Yikes, It's Yanma!, an Apricorn lottery was used to randomly decide which pairs of Gym Leaders from Kanto and Johto would face each other in an interregional exhibition match at Indigo Plateau. Blaine and Clair got a Red Apricorn each.


  • In all games in which Apricorns are obtainable, due to item names being limited to 12 characters (including spaces), the Red Apricorn is the only Apricorn to have its color fully spelled out in its English name. In subsequent games the item name character limit has been increased and the Apricorns' names expanded, but Apricorns have not been obtainable in any of these games.
  • Burnt Berry trees in Generation II are replaced by Red Apricorn trees in Generation IV.
