Drew captured Flygon before competing in the Hoenn Grand Festival. Flygon fought alongside Roselia and together they defeated May's Combusken and Skitty. In the next round, Flygon fought with Drew's Masquerain against Robert's Milotic and Claydol but they were defeated.
Flygon also appeared when Drew was attempting to capture an Arcanine. Drew eventually abandoned his attempt to catch Arcanine because he did not want to break up Arcanine's family.
Flygon was also used in the Kanto Grand Festival, along with Drew's Absol where it battled Combusken and Squirtle. During the battle it was revealed to have learned DragonBreath which it used along with Absol's Razor Wind, creating an awesome combination which was called a "Dragon Razor Wind". Despite this it was eventually defeated by Squirtle's super effective Ice Beam.
