This Magcargo, nicknamed Mag, is a Flannery./ -type Pokémon belonging to
Mag first appeared in Poetry Commotion when it and Meg, Flannery's other Slugma, accidentally set her hair on fire. When Flannery's Torkoal was stolen by Team Rocket, Flannery sent Mag to attack Team Rocket, negating James' Cacnea's Pin Missile by using Ember. Meowth attempted to attack Max and May, who were rescuing Torkoal, but was burned by Mag's Flamethrower. After stopping Cacnea and Jessie's Seviper by using another Flamethrower, Mag evolved into a Magcargo. With Mr. Moore's Typhlosion, Mag used Flamethrower, burning Team Rocket and their Pokémon, who were blasted off by Pikachu's Thunderbolt.
During Flannery's Gym battle with Ash, Mag was the first Pokémon she used. Mag put up a good fight against Ash's Corphish, despite being at a type disadvantage but was eventually defeated by the Water type's Crabhammer.
