In ''[[EP263|Address Unown!]]'', an {{p|Unown}} teleported Ash, {{an|Brock}}, and {{an|Misty}} to a dimension that physically manifested images and experiences from Larvitar's life. Ash and his friends then reached a {{pkmn2|giant}} Larvitar Egg with holes in it, as well as a large crystalline thorn sticking out of it. Inside the holes were images of Ash, Misty, and Brock. Both Misty and Brock appeared in black and white, symbolizing Larvitar's distrust towards them. After Ash touched the thorn, he, Misty, Brock, {{AP|Pikachu}}, and {{TP|Misty|Togepi}} were transported inside the Egg and into another dimension where Larvitar was seen sleeping. There, Ash and his friends received visions of Larvitar as an Egg. The group then heard Larvitar's voice as it was kidnapped by the [[Pokémon Poacher Brothers]] and sensed its {{p|Tyranitar|mother}} being brutally attacked. It was later separated from the poachers and mistakenly kicked around. Larvitar's past manifested into thorny branches encasing it, developing into a block of crystal. Together, Ash, Misty, and Brock were able to destroy the branches around Larvitar and help it open up more.

Since that incident, Larvitar became more comfortable around Misty and Brock, but it still hardened around other human beings. It was then reunited with its mother in ''[[EP264|Mother of All Battles!]]'', who at first believed Ash and his friends were harming her child. Tyranitar eventually calmed down once she realized Ash and his friends' peaceful and benevolent actions around Larvitar. However, the poachers that initially stolen Larvitar, the Pokémon Poacher Brothers, returned to capture her, but they were eventually captured through the teamwork of Ash, his friends, [[Ranger Mason]], and Larvitar. Afterwards, Larvitar was left at Mt. Silver.
Larvitar reappeared in a flashback in ''[[SM042|Alola, Kanto!]]'' while Ash, Brock, and Misty were reminiscing about their travels together.
===Personality and characteristics===
[[File:Ash and Larvitar SM042.png|thumb|250px|Larvitar and Ash]]
Larvitar was particularly shy around humans after birth, and it would subsequently often {{m|Harden}} itself towards them. The trauma that Larvitar suffered as an {{pkmn|Egg}} was the main reason for its introverted nature.
Its impressive strength was first showcased in ''[[EP258|Hatch Me if You Can]]'', after it defeated {{TRT}} with its powerful {{m|Hidden Power}}. Larvitar developed a very courageous attitude in ''[[EP262|You're a Star, Larvitar!]]'', where it managed to rescue a group of Pokémon from Team Rocket by itself.
