It appeared later in the saga, after evolving into an Espeon sometime in between. It appeared to have grown a lot, not only in size, but as well as in battling experience. It had also learned quite a few new moves now that it had evolved, such as Psybeam and Swift.
Also, despite not being a Water-type, Sakura's Espeon is shown to be a very strong swimmer, which Misty was both surprised and impressed by.
