, J used Salamence and her Ill-Will Hunting! Drapion to battle Ash's Pikachu and Gary's Blastoise.
J tends to use Salamence for destructive purposes as well. In
, she commanded it to destroy a forest with its Pokémon Ranger and the Kidnapped Riolu! (Part 1) Flamethrower to smoke out the Riolu she wanted to capture.
, J used its Pillars of Friendship! Hyper Beam to knock down the rock, ice, and steel pillars inside the Snowpoint Temple and Flamethrower to awaken Regigigas. Salamence is also able to hold its own in battle against legendary Pokémon such as Regigigas and also could evade a volley of Hyper Beams from Brandon's Regirock, Registeel, and Regice with ease.

It appeared briefly in

Personality and characteristics
Salamence appears to have no trouble in following J's orders, as evidenced in
when it was commanded by J to use Pokémon Ranger and the Kidnapped Riolu! Part One Flamethrower on a forest just so J could capture a Riolu for profit. In many of the battles Salamence partook, it barely took damage from any attacks coming from its opponents and had quick movements that allowed it to not get hit by them as well. Similar to Giovanni with his Persian, J appears to value Salamence very much that it was used more often.
Using Hyper Beam
A shows that the move was used recently, unless all moves fit this case or there are fewer than five known moves.
