In the DS remakes, the new ApriJuice feature has been added. The ApriJuice are like the PokéBlocks and Poffins features seen in other games and will increase your stats in a Pokethlon contest. Both Apricorns and ApriJuices are kept in the Apricorn Box (a Key Item that appears in Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver).
Types of Apricorns
The types of apricorns (and their resulting Poké Balls) are:
- White Apricorn
- "Fast Ball", Works most effectively against Pokémon with a high speed stat. Weakens the strength of all other Apricorns used in Aprijuice.
- Red Apricorn
- "Level Ball", Effectiveness increases with the difference in level between your Pokémon and the target Pokémon. Used to make Power Juice.
- Blue Apricorn
- "Lure Ball", Works best when fishing. Used to make Skill Juice
- Green Apricorn
- "Friend Ball", Similar to the Luxury Ball, it raises the Pokémon's happiness. Used to make Jump Juice.
- Yellow Apricorn
- "Moon Ball", Works best against Pokémon that evolve with a Moon Stone. Used to make Stamina Juice.
- Pink Apricorn
- "Love Ball", Is more effective when the target Pokémon is of the opposite gender of your Pokémon. Used to make Speed Juice.
- Black Apricorn
- "Heavy Ball", Catches heavy Pokémon (like Snorlax) more effectively. Increases the strength of all other Apricorns used in Aprijuice.
