A Heart Scale in the anime

Heart Scales first appeared in a fantasy in Partner Promises, when Mallow mentioned how the jewelry shop "Alola Sunrise" makes its jewelry from Heart Scales and Corsola branches.

A Heart Scale made its first proper appearance in the Poké Problem extra scene of SM120, where Lana showed one to her classmates, jokingly claiming that it was a Kyogre scale.

A Heart Scale appeared in SM121, where Mallow obtained one from a group of Fearow that had come to visit Oranguru's Café.
