The Flame Plate, alongside the other 15 Plates at the time, appeared 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 destroying a meteor that threatened what would become Michina Town. Damos found one of these lost Plates and returned it to Arceus. This gave it the strength to recall the other 15 Plates.

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

In The Arceus Chronicles (Part 1), Team Galactic was revealed to have acquired a Flame Plate, which they used, along with the Heatran Saturn had caught, to power a device a that would bring back Cyrus. However, in The Arceus Chronicles (Part 2), the machine overloaded and backfired, causing Heatran to go on a rampage and swallow the Flame Plate. In The Arceus Chronicles (Part 4), the Flame Plate was recovered by Arceus.

HeartGold & SoulSilver chapter

Petrel was collecting the Plates 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.
