The Splash Plate, alongside the Draco Plate and Iron Plate, first appeared in Journey to the Unown!, where Saturn and two Galactic Grunts placed them in a room of the Solaceon Ruins to obtain the Spear Key and awaken the Unown there. The Plates were used to power up the three types of Palkia and Dialga (Dragon, Steel, and Water) combined.

The Splash Plate, alongside the other 15 Plates, appeared again in Arceus and the Jewel of Life, where Arceus used them to change its type, and almost died when it lost all of the Plates after having destroyed a meteor. Damos found one of these lost Plates and returned it to Arceus, giving it the strength to recall the other 15 Plates. That act earned its trust and prompted it to detach the Earth Plate, Splash Plate, Meadow Plate, Zap Plate, and Draco Plate in the form of the Jewel of Life so Damos could make Michina Town flourish.

The Splash Plate, alongside the Flame Plate and Earth Plate, appeared in a flashback in Hoopa and the Clash of Ages, in which Ghris was seen using their power to create the Prison Bottle.

The Plates in Pokémon Adventures

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

The Plates first appeared in the HeartGold & SoulSilver chapter, in which Petrel was collecting them for Team Rocket's plan. After Silver stole the few Plates he had managed to find, Petrel decided to let him gather all 16 Plates, just to get them back at once later. With his Weavile leaving messages for Sneasel and Weavile across Johto, Silver soon indeed gathered all 16 Plates for himself. At the Sinjoh Ruins, Gold surrendered the Plates to Archer, who used them to seemingly take control of Arceus, ordering it to recreate Dialga, Palkia, and Giratina. When the Pokédex holders used their Pokémon's ultimate attacks to stop the creation, all the Plates were absorbed by Arceus.
