Treecko in the anime

Treecko first appeared in Get the Show on the Road. Professor Birch was showing May the three Pokémon she had the choice of starting with. She did not choose Treecko because it "creeped her out".

Ash Ketchum has a Sceptile that he caught as a Treecko in Tree's a Crowd. It evolved into Grovyle in Exploud and Clear, and in Odd Pokémon Out, it reached its final form.

In Having a Wailord of a Time, a Nurse Joy was taking care of a Treecko, Torchic and Mudkip that a little girl named Stephanie was going to choose between as her first Pokémon. Stephanie chose Mudkip, and Stephanie's dad decided to become a Pokémon Trainer with the Treecko as his first Pokémon.

A Treecko is also one of the hosts of the live-action series Pokémon Sunday.
