Z-Crystal

A Z-Crystal (Japanese: Z クリスタル Z-Crystal) is an item required to upgrade moves to Z-Moves through the use of a Z-Ring S M or Z-Power Ring US UM .

In the Alola region, Z-Crystals play an important role in the island challenge, as they provide proof of completing trials and grand trials, much like Gym Badges in other regions. However, not all Z-Crystals are obtained in this manner in Pokémon Sun and Moon or Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon.

During the game, the player can obtain Z-Crystals for their Bag, which will be stored in a dedicated Bag section. These Z-Crystals can be used to create held items of the same name at will. A held Z-Crystal is automatically removed if the Pokémon is traded between players; however, some Pokémon received from in-game trades may be holding a Z-Crystal the player already has.

Holding a Z-Crystal makes Rayquaza unable to Mega Evolve.
