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.


There are so far twenty-two Z-Moves. These Z-moves power and category are based on the move of the said type the user is holding. If it is a Status move, it will use a powered up version of that move. If the user knows two or more moves of the same time, one can choose what move can be used.
