History

As a Makuhita

Hariyama was first seen in Brave the Wave, as a Makuhita, where it was surfing with Brawly, something they are both interested in. While they were surfing, Makuhita lost its footing and fell over but recovered quickly when they got back to shore. When Team Rocket arrived to catch Pikachu, Makuhita swam very quickly on its surfboard and caught up to Team Rocket, tackling them and rescuing Pikachu in the process.

During the Gym battle against Ash, Brawly sent it out after his Machop got defeated under the hands of Ash's Treecko. In the first part of their battle, Makuhita rolled over sideways every time it got hit by an attack, similar to what Machop did when battling Ash's Taillow. Makuhita's strength in power and skill caused it to hold off Treecko's excessive Pound attacks, gaining the upper hand. Makuhita evolved into Hariyama when Treecko got up after it was hit by Seismic Toss. Treecko was no match for Hariyama as its Pound attack was rendered useless. With the massive power boost Hariyama gained via evolution, Hariyama finished Treecko off easily with a powerful Knock Off, thus defeating Ash. After the battle, it was then surfing again with Brawly. Hariyama was able to improve its footing skills when it evolved.

Brawly and Hariyama surfing

Hariyama reappeared in A Meditite Fight where it stopped a falling rock caused by a big storm from crushing Brawly and Shauna. After the storm subsided, Hariyama took on Team Rocket and single-handedly defeated them with Arm Thrust.

During Ash's rematch against Brawly in Just One of the Geysers, Brawly sent out Hariyama to handle Corphish after the latter defeated Machop. Hariyama immediately attacked with Arm Thrust. Ash had his Corphish use Harden to take in the blows Hariyama was delivering in order for Hariyama to get tired. However, Hariyama was able to keep going despite all that. Next, Corphish dived underwater to surprise Hariyama with Crabhammer which worked. In the end, Hariyama took out Corphish with Seismic Toss, leaving Ash with Treecko. Unlike last time, Treecko used Pound on Hariyama's legs instead of Hariyama itself since the footing is usually Hariyama's weakness. After Hariyama got hit with more Pound attacks on its legs, it was not able to hit Treecko with Vital Throw. With both Pokémon getting tired, Treecko was able to finish off Hariyama during the final part of the battle with Treecko and Hariyama using Pound and Knock Off respectively, winning Ash the Knuckle Badge.

In the manga

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Hariyama in Pokémon Adventures

Hariyama debuted as a Makuhita in Stick This in Your Craw, Crawdaunt II surfing with Brawly. The wave they were surfing on got larger and Sapphire wanted to rescue them since they would have been sucked in the wave. She claimed that the large wave was caused by her Lorry's sneeze. However, the size of the wave was fine as Makuhita was being taught martial arts and was doing so by the use of surfing.

As a Makuhita

Makuhita was sent out as the second Pokémon during Sapphire's Gym battle in Mashing Makuhita after Machop's defeat in the hands of Chic, Sapphire's newly-evolved Combusken. Brawly trusted Makuhita in terms of strength. Its first opponent was Rono, Sapphire's newly-evolved Lairon. Makuhita had the huge advantage with type since Rono was part Steel and Rock. In the battle, Makuhita took advantage of its surfing techniques when it absorbed Rono's Metal Claw and Iron Tail simultaneously. Afterwards, Makuhita took out Rono with Counter, dealing double the damage to the Lairon. Makuhita's next opponent was Chic. Chic launched a Flamethrower at the rotund fighter and dealt very little damage due to its Thick Fat Ability. Afterwards, it dodged Chic's attack, landing the Young Fowl Pokémon slamming to a wall. As Makuhita was avoiding and flowing with Chic's attack strength, it gained energy. All that energy caused Makuhita to evolve into Hariyama. Hariyama was about to deliver the last attack until Chic used Double Kick, by having the first kick block Hariyama's attack and the second kick for offense. This strategy took out Hariyama, earning Sapphire the Knuckle Badge.

Activating Thick Fat as a Makuhita

Hariyama reappears in The Beginning of the End with Kyogre & Groudon VIII, during the fight against Groudon. Brawly has Hariyama wake up Machoke after it got hit by the electricity in the air that Groudon absorbed. Hariyama battles with Blaise in The Beginning of the End with Kyogre & Groudon IX. It had no trouble handling Blaise's illusionary skills and his two illusion-producing Slugma, where one Fake Out startles them and leaves them wide open for another attack. Hariyama uses this opportunity to use Arm Thrust on them. The battle continued in the next chapter and The Beginning of the End with Kyogre & Groudon XII. During the twelfth part of the Kyogre and Groudon battle, Hariyama defeats the two Slugma using the tactics Brawly learned from his old friend Bruno. After the battle, Hariyama, along with its Trainer, get exhausted since they spent most of their vitality countering Blaise's illusions. Blaise was able to flee the Lilycove Inn.
