During The Legend of Thunder, when Vincent suddenly arrived on the scene to stop Team Rocket, Meganium saved Jimmy and Marina by using a Solar Beam on a big rock coming from Steelix's Rock Throw that was heading for them. Meganium attacked Steelix with Solar Beam but it was proven ineffective*. Later, Meganium became one of the Pokémon who was helping to save Raikou from Attila and Hun as Vincent had it use Solar Beam on the crystal-generated field along with Little Miss's Psybeam, as any non-Electric-type move could neither absorb or reflect it. Later, it worked together with Typhlosion to take on Attila's and Hun's Pokémon. Around the end of the battle, Steelix was about to finish them off with Crunch, but it was stopped by Raikou, who had managed to escape from Team Rocket's Crystal System.
Meganium and Vincent
Meganium reappeared in Tie One On! of the Silver Conference arc. Jackson* first wanted to save Meganium for the Victory Tournament, but realized that it was a mistake for him to do that. Outside, Meganium, along with Azumarill, got into a rivalry with Ash's Bulbasaur and Squirtle respectively as they wanted to have the one apple that was hanging on the tree. Harrison's Miltank arrived and stopped them however with Heal Bell.
During the battle Jackson had with Ash, he sent out Meganium when two of his Pokémon were already defeated. Meganium was tied up against Bulbasaur. Both of the Grass-type were still upset about each other for what happened before. They recklessly used their attacks on each other, not bothering to evade any of them. As they both used Solar Beam, both of them were knocked out, ending the battle in a draw. Despite that, the Grass-type Pokémon started to get along, shaking vines.
