The Z-Move (Zワザ, Z Waza) is a gameplay mechanic introduced in Generation VII. Z-Moves are very strong and powerful attacks that certain Pokémon can gain access to. However, Z-Moves are used only once for each battle. Z-Moves can be activated with a special item called a Z-Crystal and a Z-Ring. Ash Ketchum obtains the Z-Move in Sun and Moon anime.
