Gold, Silver & Crystal chapter

As a Chikorita

Megaree first appeared as a Chikorita in Murkrow Row, and was left on her own after Silver stole Totodile and Gold took Cyndaquil. She wanted to go on adventures with a Trainer. However, Crystal had no plans of adding new Pokémon to her team, and in Three Cheers for Chikorita she ran away from the lab to convince her. She soon finds her on Route 30 and is grabbed by a Victreebel as a shield against Crystal's Archy. Crystal then tells Chumee to use Mean Look and captures them both. Crystal then tells Chikorita that she is going to send both of them to Professor Oak. Chikorita shows discontent from this and signals she wants to join her. Crystal decides to test Chikorita by having her battle Monlee. Chikorita uses Razor Leaf and is shocked when Monlee punches the leaves away. Monlee then uses Mega Punch and breaks the ground. Chikorita manages to stay there while the ground starts to give way. When it stops, Crystal smiles and tells Chikorita that no Pokémon had ever taken Monlee's Mega Punch in the face before. She tells her that she has mega watts of courage and names her Megaree, adding her to her team. Since all of Crystal's team members have a star theme, Chumee gave Megaree her star pendant.

In Lively Larvitar, Megaree battled against the Larvitar that injured Archy in the past. Megaree instantly jumped into the battle after Archy was defeated out of rage from what Larvitar did and tackles it. Larvitar quickly gains the advantage, but is knocked out and captured once Megaree evolved into Bayleef.

As a Bayleef

In Lively Lugia II, Megaree fights against a wild Lugia and meets back up with Exbo and Croconaw. After a tiring battle with Lugia the three starters evolve into their final form due to the stress of the battle and the encouragement of the others. Gold then attempts to capture Lugia, but it escapes.

In The Last Battle XIV, Megaree is used alongside the other starters to try and stop Pryce from capturing Celebi.

Emerald chapter

Crystal and Megaree

Prior to The Final Battle I, Megaree was revealed to have mastered Frenzy Plant from Ultima. In The Final Battle VIII, Megaree teamed up with Saur and Emerald's Sceptile to attack with Frenzy Plant to help destroy Guile Hideout's fake Kyogre.

HeartGold & SoulSilver chapter

In All About Arceus V, Megaree teams up with Exbo and Feraligatr to use their ultimate attacks against the incomplete forms of Dialga, Palkia, and Giratina. While the attack managed to slow them down it ended up failing.

Personality and characteristics

Megaree is a very brave Pokémon and is described by Crystal as someone with "mega watts of courage". She wastes no time jumping into difficult battles and refuses to give up. Megaree also has a strong sense of justice and hates seeing the strong prey off of the weak.
