An Icium Z in the anime

An Icium Z was first seen in Not Caving Under Pressure!, where it was given to Lillie by an Alolan Sandslash after she had helped driving off a wild Tyranitar that had tried to take over the cave inhabited by Sandslash and a group of Alolan Sandshrew.

A full set of replicas of the type-specific Z-Crystals, including the Icium Z, appeared in A Team-on-Team Tussle!, where they were shown to Ash and his classmates by Professor Kukui.
