Fire is resistant to Fairy. But Fairy isn't weak to Fire.

Yes it's a Wyrm in an apple, its tail pokes out from the back and its "leaves" are actually the eyes of the wyrm. There is a funny thing to note that there are a number of myths associating apples and dragons/serpents. It's evolution is pretty neat as well to think about.

If you give it at tart apple, something known for making your mouth shrink and pucker you get a pretty thin version of it in the form of Flapple. Presumably because it couldn't gorge itself on the apple so it just grows into an adult version of the unseen wyrm. With its body acting now as the core of the apple and it grows a horn that acts as an apple stem. If you give it a sweet apple it basically turns into a sweet/gorges itself to become the delicious chunky appletun. Where its eyes fold down giving it the appearance of ears and its body appears to become part of the apple product rather than merely using it as a tool, bringing a new meaning to the idea of "you are what you eat".

It's interesting though that only Appletun gets apple acid since apple acid is tart, but I guess the idea is because it becomes part of the apple itself it can now produce apple products from its body. From delicious apple pie crust skin to gaining the ability to breath apple acid. Or it just ate so much that it's essentially just throwing up the apple. Meanwhile keeping in line with the logic of Flapple continues to just use the apple like a tool, its unique move lets it summon and drop an apple from the heavens like anvil. It seems to me to more or less be a joke on things like dragons summoning meteors, but it summons an apple instead. We get a bit of science reference in it as well since gravapple actually deals more damage in gravity, increase the gravity and it hits harder because it is falling faster.

Then you've got its giganitmax which seems to restore it to its actual true wyrm state without the influence of the sweet or tart apples, albite it's huge. Its apple also is returned to its original state but it's exploded from out if turning the contents into mush so it's basically a wyrm sitting in a container of apple sauce.

Really it's such a cool line.
I've got a quote that embodies you perfectly, but it's seventy-three posts long, has a few massive flowcharts, and lots of Xion-KMA to Me
