About Z-Move

  • A Z-Move (Japanese: Zワザ Z-Move) is a special type of move introduced in Generation VII in which a Trainer and their Pokemon's wishes combine to unleash an attack comprising the full power of both.
  • These moves are very powerful, but they can only be used once per battle.

Z-Power Ring and Z-Crystal

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

Z-Move Type

  • The Z-Move that a Pokemon can perform depends on the Z-Crystal it holds.
  • There are 18 different Z-Crystals that correspond to each of the 18 types, and several others that correspond to specific Pokemon.
  • Z-Moves work by powering up one of the Pokemon's normal moves, so the Pokemon must also know an appropriate move.
  • For the type-related Z-Crystals, the Pokemon must know a move of the same type as the Z-Crystal it is holding.


  • For the Pokemon-specific Z-Crystals, the move required differs for each Pokemon.

Power of Z-Move

  • Z-Moves draw upon the PP of the Pokemon's original moves in order to execute, requiring and consuming PP upon use.
  • When the Z-Move option is chosen in battle, a list of Z-Moves overlays the Pokemon's original list of moves, with each compatible move of the Pokemon's original moves overlain by a Z-Move option that draws upon that move.


  • Damaging Z-Moves derive their category (physical or special) and power from the original move.
  • 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 have a power of 175 and be a special move.
  • If the Pokemon knows more than one compatible move, it will be able to choose among different versions of the Z-Move with different stats, with the instance that has the highest power sparkling.
  • Damaging Z-Moves do not inherit any other properties from the original move, so have neutral priority and do not have the additional effects of the base move.

Mega Evolved and Primal

  • Mega Evolved and Primal Pokemon cannot use Z-Moves, even when holding an appropriate Z-Crystal (such as after Transform).
