Ariados first appeared in The Saffron Con, and Harley also used it in the following episode in the Saffron City contest. It battled against May's Squirtle, but the young Pokémon ended up defeating it by using Ice Beam. It also appeared in Harley Rides Again performing in the appeal round of the Wisteria Town Contest, and in New Plot, Old Lot, where it was borrowed by James and Meowth and used to sabotage May's appeal by secretly shooting its web at both her and her Combusken from above the stage.
