Pikashunium Z in the anime

In SM054, Ash's Electrium Z turned into a Pikashunium Z as he was about to attack 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.
