Advanced Generation series

May first met a Beautifly belonging to Janet, a Pokémon Coordinator who inspired May to participate in Pokémon Contests. Wanting to have a Beautifly of her own, she uses her Torchic to battle against a wild Wurmple and catches her first Pokémon. Jessie also catches a Wurmple at the time.

In A Corphish Out of Water, May's Wurmple evolved into a Silcoon while battling against Jessie's Wurmple which also evolved, however, it evolved into a Cascoon instead. Soon after, May's Silcoon evolved into a Beautifly while battling Jessie's Cascoon. Later, Jessie's Cascoon evolves into a Dustox.

Since then, May has used Beautifly in multiple contests as well as a PokéRinger competition, where she lost to Jessie's Dustox while being used by James. She was used in the Hoenn Grand Festival, in the Appeal Round, scoring pretty highly with just a single Silver Wind. After losing in the Grand Festival to Drew, she heads home, leaving her Beautifly and Skitty there, and heads to Kanto.

After losing in the Grand Festival to Solidad and became depressed about her loss, she temporarily recalls Beautifly to her party in the The Unbeatable Lightness of Seeing!, where she used her in a battle against Drew. After being paired with May's Combusken, they battled against Drew's Roselia and Butterfree. Despite both her Pokémon having a type advantage, as well as Beautifly's recently learned Psychic, May loses the battle, but regains her confidence.

Diamond and Pearl series

In the Wallace Cup in Sinnoh, she used Beautifly to battle Zoey's Glameow, where she gracefully won and allowed May to move up to the finals.
