In the anime

A Solganium Z in the anime

In Revealing the Stuff of Legend!, Ash received a Solganium Z from the newly evolved Nebby. After having his Z-Ring upgraded to a Z-Power Ring by the guardian deities, Ash and Nebby used Searing Sunraze Smash to open an Ultra Wormhole so Ash and his classmates could travel into Ultra Space and rescue Lusamine.

In Securing the Future!, Ash used his Solganium Z again with Nebby, while Gladion used his newly acquired Lunalium Z with Lunala, in order for the two Legendary Pokémon to use the respective Z-Moves to help return Necrozma to its true form.

In Beauty is Only Crystal Deep!, the Ultra Guardians used the Solganium Z, along with Ash's Grassium Z, Normalium Z, Steelium Z, and Rockium Z, and Lillie's Icium Z, as bait for a Pheromosa.
