Yellow Apricorns in the anime

Yellow Apricorns first appeared in Going Apricorn!, where Kurt sent Ash, Misty, and Brock to harvest some Apricorns. However, the tree they found was infested by a group of Pineco, preventing them from picking up any Apricorns from it.

In An Egg Scramble!, Yellow Apricorns were one of the things Khoury was selling at the Johto Festival.
