All Z-Crystal Locations In Pokémon Sun And Moon

Z-Moves are a powerful introduction to battles in Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, that can be unleashed when a Pokémon is holding a Z-Crystal that corresponds to its move’s type.

These Z-Moves can only be used once per battle, and see the Trainer and Pokémon’s wishes resonate with each other resulting in both releasing their full power together.

Their effects will vary whether they are based on an attack or status move. For example, attack moves have far greater power than a standard move, but the increased potency is dependant on the original move’s power that the Z-Move is based on.

For those looking to secure every Z-Crystal in the Alola region, we have listed their locations below to help out!
