A Z-Move is a special type of move in which a Trainer and their Pokémon’s wishes combine to unleash a very powerful attack. These moves can only be used once per battle. A Z-Move is not an extra move the Pokémon learns, but powers up one of the moves the Pokémon already knows. Z-Moves are new to Pokemon Sun & Moon.

Z-Crystals

There are 18 different Z-Crystals that correspond to each of the 18 types, and several others that correspond to specific Pokémon. Z-Moves work by powering up one of the Pokémon's normal moves, so the Pokémon must also know an appropriate move.

For the type-related Z-Crystals, the Pokémon must know a move of the same type as the Z-Crystal it is holding. For the Pokémon-specific Z-Crystals, the move required differs for each Pokémon.

A Z-Ring is also required in order to perform Z-Moves. A Pokémon can only use a Z-Move if its Trainer is wearing a Z-Ring and has the same Z-Crystal its Pokémon is holding.

So a Pokémon can only use a Z-move if all of the following conditions are met:

The Pokémon is holding a Z-Crystal.
The Pokémon knows a move that corresponds with the Z-Crystal it is holding.
The Pokémon’s Trainer is wearing a Z-Ring with the same Z-Crystal the Pokémon is holding.

Z-Moves can only be done once in a battle, but doing them doesn't use up any PP. Z-Moves are also the strongest moves, so they can be useful for bringing fights with weaker enemies to a close without wasting all your moves.

Z-Moves

There are two different kinds of Z-Moves: Z-Moves which can be used by any Pokémon, with one Z-Move for each of the 18 types; and Z-Moves that can only be used by specific Pokémon. The Z-Move that a Pokémon can perform depends on the Z-Crystal it holds.

Furthermore, since a Z-Move has no numerical accuracy it derives its category (physical or special) and power from a compatible move in the Pokémon's original set of moves.

For example, a Gigavolt Havoc based on Nuzzle (with a power of 20) will have a power of 100 and be a physical move, while one based on Thunderbolt (with a power of 90) will be a special move with a power of 175. Z-Moves also draw upon the PP of the Pokémon’s original moves in order to execute.

If a Pokémon knows more than one compatible move, you can choose which move to base the Z-Power on. When the Z-Move option is chosen in battle, a list of Z-Moves overlays the Pokémon’s original list of moves and shows which moves are compatible.

Submitter's Comment
Equipping a Z-Crystal on a Pokemon will allow you to have them activate their most powerful move once per battle with no cost beyond that. However even if you equip many Pokemon with Z-Crystals, you will only be able to use the Z-Move for one of them per Battle.
