Green Shards appeared in The Relicanth Really Can, when Adam found them after they fell off the fins of a Relicanth. He mistook them for emeralds, until his wife, Evelyn, identified them as Green Shards. She stated that Green Shards were used in ancient times to make jewelry, but aren't worth as much in the present. After another treasure hunt, Adam found an entire chest filled with Green Shards.

Ash found one of each shard in Treasure Hunt, Akala Style! during a Stoutland Search treasure hunt set up for him and his classmates by Olivia.
