Blaziken first appeared when Korrina, her Lucario, Ash, Serena, Clemont, and Bonnie arrived at Geosenge Town's cave. It was seen to be protecting the Lucarionite in the cave. Korrina and her Lucario challenged it to a battle and in the battle, it easily overpowered Lucario with its Blaze Kick and Flamethrower. After being encouraged by Ash, Korrina encouraged her Lucario and Lucario then fought, despite the taken damage, fiercely against Blaziken. This time, Lucario was able to stop Blaziken with its Bone Rush, stopping Blaziken in its track. When Lucario decided to use the finishing attack, Gurkinn stopped the battle and recalled Blaziken after saying to Blaziken that it did a great job.
