Lycanroc gets its own Z-Move in Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon THE POKEMON COMPANY

Z-Crystals and Z-Moves make their return in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon but with even more Pokémon-specific crystals to find.

The return to Alola will bring new strategies to implement new Z-Crystals from Pokémon like Lycanroc, Komo-oo and Mimikyu. You’ll also want to pick up the ordinary Z-Crystals that any Pokémon using that type of move can use.

So where exactly can you find all of the Z-Crystals in Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon? First, learn the basics of the mechanic (with some new additions) and then the list of locations below.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

Each typing has their own Z-Move and you can equip the correct Z-Crystal to a Pokémon that has an attack that is of the same type. For example, your Pikachu can use the Normal Z-Crystal if it knows Quick Attack.

- Like Mega Evolutions, only one Z-Move can be used once per battle. You’ll need to determine when to use the Z-Move for maximum impact, because it’s the only time you’ll be able to use it.

- The upgraded Rotom Dex will have the ability to allow for another use of your Z-Crystal but only when it’s affection toward you is high.

- Every attack your Pokemon knows affects the power of your Z-Move. A Z-Move Close Combat does more damage than a Z-Move powered Rock Smash.

Here's a list of every move and how much power it gives a Z-Move.

- Z-Moves also work with status moves. They will give an extra effect on top of the normal effect of your move for example. Stealth Rock with a Z-Move will increase the Defense of the Pokémon using it.

Here's a list of every change a Z-Move has on a status move.

- Moves like Protect and Detect do not stop Z-Moves, they just reduce the amount of damage taken.

- Moves like Fly and Dig DO make Z-Moves miss.
