In ''[[XY127|Analysis Versus Passion!]]'', Charizard was Alain's second Pokémon during his semifinal match against Remo. It was shown easily defeating Remo's {{p|Rhyperior}} with a Dragon Claw. It then faced off against Remo's Mega Garchomp, Garchoo, once more. After failing to dodge a hit from {{m|Draco Meteor}}, Charizard Mega Evolved. After a clash between an evenly strong Dragon Claw and {{m|Dragon Rush}}, Charizard grabbed Garchomp and threw it into the air, before hitting it with a Flamethrower. Both Pokémon then clashed using their Dragon Claw attacks, with Charizard emerging victorious. This victory allowed Alain to advance to the finals of the Lumiose Conference.
In ''[[XY130|Finals Not for the Faint-Hearted!]]'', 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 a massive size. Both Pokémon then fired off their attacks with both scoring 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.
