New Z-Moves!

In Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, the main character wears a Z-Ring in order to use Z-Moves. In Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon, the main character will put on a Z-Power Ring, which can use even more varieties of Z-Moves than the Z-Ring! And the games also feature new Z-Moves for certain Pokémon!

What's a Z-Move?

Z-Moves are moves of tremendous power—so powerful that they can only be used once per battle. When a Trainer and their Pokémon combine the force of their wills, the full strength of their effort bursts forth in an epic Z-Move! All Pokémon can use Z-Moves. To use a Z-Move, you must have two key items: a Z-Power Ring and a Z-Crystal.


More Fun with the Z-Power Ring

With the launch of Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon,TOMY will be releasing their Pokémon Z-Power Ring around the world. If you put on a Z-Power Ring, your battles and adventures in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon can become even more fun!
