Charizard's first main series appearance occurred in ''[[XY106|A Meeting of Two Journeys!]]'', where it was first used to save [[Ash's Pikachu]] from {{TRT}} and saving him from a nasty fall as well. It was then used in a battle against {{Ash}} and his {{AP|Greninja}}. Charizard was able to hold the upper hand despite a type-disadvantage, destroying Greninja's {{m|Water Shuriken}} with Dragon Claw, and dodging Greninja's attempts to hit it with {{m|Cut}}. It retaliated with Flamethrower, hitting Greninja. Afterwards, Charizard Mega Evolved and attacked with Dragon Claw, although Greninja countered with Cut. Greninja attempted to confuse Charizard with {{m|Double Team}}, but it countered by destroying all the copies with Flamethrower. Greninja then attempted to hit Charizard with a surprise {{m|Aerial Ace}}, but Charizard revealed its newly learned {{m|Thunder Punch}} to knock Greninja away. Greninja tried to retaliate with Water Shuriken, but Charizard proved to be faster and hit it with a second Thunder Punch. When the battle seemed to be over, Greninja transformed into its Ash-Greninja Form and managed get a good hit on Charizard. It, however, quickly recovered and used Thunder Punch, which Greninja blocked with Cut. Charizard was then able to break through Cut and finished Greninja off with Blast Burn.
In [[XY130]], Charizard was Alain's final Pokémon during their final battle with Ash at the Conference. It battled Pikachu, enduring both his {{m|Quick Attack}} and even a super-effective {{m|Thunderbolt}}. [[XY131|Continuing their battle]], Charizard was hit once again by a Thunderbolt, but managed to hit Pikachu with Flamethrower when the Mouse Pokémon was too exhausted to use another Quick Attack. Another Flamethrower was blocked by a shield of dirt created by Pikachu's {{m|Iron Tail}}. Charizard and Pikachu then clashed with Dragon Claw and Iron Tail, but the former was able to overpower the latter, knocking him out. Charizard was recalled when Ash sent out his {{AP|Goodra}}.
It was sent out again to face Ash's final Pokémon, Greninja. Charizard first fired off a Flamethrower while both Pokémon headed towards each other. Its attack, however, was dodged, causing it to be hit by Greninja's Cut. Charizard and Greninja then both transformed to their respective more powerful forms, Mega Charizard X and Ash-Greninja. Greninja then started attacking by charging at Charizard while using Double Team. Charizard, however, wiped out its clones with Flamethrower, creating a huge cloud of smoke. Greninja then appeared from the smoke and fired off a Water Shuriken which was countered by Charizard's Dragon Claw. Both Pokémon then engaged in a brawl using Dragon Claw and Aerial Ace, but eventually Charizard managed to outmaneuver Greninja and knock it off its feet with Dragon Claw. Charizard then fired off a Flamethrower, but Greninja used Cut to block the attack. Its next attack, Blast Burn, was also blocked as Greninja created a shockwave by slamming its Water Shuriken on the ground. As another cloud of smoke covered the field, Charizard, unable to see Greninja, was left vulnerable to a powerful Aerial Ace, slamming it onto the ground. It, however, stood up and knocked Greninja back with Dragon Claw. After clashing with Dragon Claw and Cut, Charizard attacked with Thunder Punch, but Greninja used Water Shuriken as a melee weapon to counter the attack and was able to strike Charizard with it. Alain and Ash then had their Pokémon use Blast Burn and Water Shuriken respectively with Greninja's attack changing color and to massive size. Both Pokémon then fired off their attacks with both scorring a direct hit on their opponent, causing another explosion and leaving the battlefield covered in smoke. Although initially both Pokémon were still standing, only Charizard was able to keep itself from fainting, giving Alain the victory and making him the winner of the Lumiose Conference.

Charizard later helped [[Serena's Braixen]], Steven's Metagross and Professor Sycamore's {{p|Garchomp}} fight against the Megalith Zygarde. It, along with the other Pokémon, was eventually subdued by the creature's roots, but was freed by a combined attack from the Pokémon of all the [[Kalos]] [[Gym Leader]]s and [[Diantha]]. After strategizing, everyone combined their powers to fend off the Megalith Zygarde's roots, allowing Alain and Ash to reach its center and save Chespie, bringing the creature down. After the ressurection of the Megalith Zygarde, who was now controlled by Lysandre, Charizard, Greninja, and Pikachu managed to destroy Lysandre's control device, allowing [[Squishy]] and Z2 to destroy the Megalith Zygarde.
