Z-Crystals and Moves

Z-Moves are the newest and hippest way to spice up Pokemon battles, following hot on the heels of Mega Evolution. Similar to Mega Evolution, Z-Moves can only be used once per battle and require that your Pokemon hold a special item.

In this case, your Pokemon must hold a Z-Crystal. This allows for a lot more versatility in strategy and makes battles more fun!

However, getting all of them can certainly be a chore, and in order to complete your collection you most certainly will have to beat the game. Use this list to help you fill in all the holes of your Z-Crystal list to make sure you’ve got them all.
