In the anime

A Pikashunium Z in the anime

In 10,000,000 Reasons to Fight!, Ash's Electrium Z abruptly turned into a Pikashunium Z as he was about to attack Nihilego, the Ultra Beast holding Lusamine captive. Using the power of this new Z-Crystal, Ash and Pikachu used 10,000,000 Volt Thunderbolt to defeat UB-01 Symbiont and free Lusamine. The Pikashunium Z reverted back to Electrium Z after the move was performed.

It reappeared in A Battle Hand-Off!, where Ash used it to perform 10,000,000 Volt Thunderbolt once again to defeat Jessie's Mimikyu at the Thrifty Megamart. Afterwards, it once again reverted back to an Electrium Z.
