Tate would use a Lunatone as part of the Mossdeep City Gym Battle against Ash in the episodes It's Still Rocket Roll to Me and Solid As A Solrock. The first battle was interrupted by Team Rocket and their usual meddling, but when they got the battle underway the second time, Solrock would be defeated by a combination attack from Ash's Pikachu and Swellow, defeating the twin duo.
Solrock's Manga info is unknown at this time.
Solrock finds itself in the Never-Utilized Tier of Competitive Battling. It has a similar deal to Lunatone in the metagame, but it has a better Attack whereas Lunatone has a better Special Attack. It can also use a couple viable movesets that Lunatone could use in a similar manner to Lunatone [Trick Room or Baton Passing speed boosts from Rock Polish], but by using Physical attacks instead.
Solrock also suffers from the same flaws as Lunatone in terms of less-than-stellar defenses, type weakness and strategies. including shutting down its support options with Taunt.
