In the anime

The Burn Drive in the anime

The Burn Drive, along with the other Drives, appeared in Genesect and the Legend Awakened, attached to a member of the Genesect Army. While it was used with the same purpose of changing the type of Techno Blast in the movie, it was also the key item to tell its owner apart from the other Genesect.

Pokémon Adventures

Black 2 & White 2 arc

From Mr. Perfect to Innocent Scientist, Colress used a Genesect to battle against Blake. Once Blake had defeated and captured Genesect, he obtained the Shock Drive in the process.

The Shock Drive was later given to the Magician in order to reverse-engineer another set of Burn, Chill, and Douse Drives. Blake used the Burn Drive to battle Team Plasma on the Plasma Frigate, though, due to it being incomplete at the time, Genesect was injured by its own attack and left exhausted after using Techno Blast on some Team Plasma Grunts. After Blake had later used the Fire-type Techno Blast to save the Swords of Justice from being frozen in ice, Cobalion knocked the damaged Burn Drive off of Genesect's body, after which it exploded.
