In Trial and Tribulation!, Hala used a Fightinium Z with his Hariyama in his grand trial challenge with Ash. Later in the episode, Tapu Koko swapped out the Fightinium Z Ash was supposed to receive, as a reward for completing his Melemele grand trial, with an Electrium Z.

A full set of type-specific Z-Crystals, including the Fightinium Z, appeared in A Grand Debut!, where Hapu allowed Ash to choose his grand trial prize from them.

A Fightinium Z appeared in Beauty is Only Crystal Deep!, where Hala was shown placing one in a newly constructed Z-Ring. It was soon after stolen by a Pheromosa.
