Fletchinder first appeared in Breaking Titles at the Chateau! when Nico and Chester introduced their Pokémon to Ash Ketchum and his friends in the Pokémon Center, where Ash and his friends met Nico and Chester. Fletchinder was also scanned by Ash with his Pokédex.
Later, Nico used his Fletchinder against Farrell and his his Dusknoir in a battle at the Battle Chateau. Farrell ordered his Dusknoir to use Thunder Punch and it successfully hit Fletchinder. However, Fletchinder was able to recover from the attack quickly and Nico ordered his Fletchinder to use Flame Charge, which knocked out Dusknoir.
