Pokémon Adventures

Gold, Silver & Crystal arc

In The Last Battle IV, during the final battle against the Masked Man, Lt. Surge used a Magnet to power up the moves of Raikou. Notably, the Magnet that appeared was a lodestone rather than a horseshoe magnet as seen in the games, due to the fact that this chapter was released before the Magnet was even given a proper sprite.

In the TCG

A Magnet held by Magnemite

A Magnet appears as a held item on the Stormfront Magnemite card. It causes Magnemite's retreat cost to be   less for each Magnemite on the player's Bench.
