Reason: Can separation of transferred or traded Zygarde yield cores (and teachable moves)? If enough Zygarde are traded/transferred and separated before becoming Champion, is it possible to assemble a Power Construct Zygarde? Can the Zygarde Cube actually hold more than 100 Cells/Cores at one time?.

The Zygarde Cube

The Zygarde Cube (Japanese: ジガルデキューブ Zygarde Cube) is an object that is able to hold Zygarde Cells and Cores. A Reassembly Unit can use the Cells and Cores in the Zygarde Cube to assemble a new Zygarde. The Zygarde Cube can also memorize the moves retained by Cores it takes in and teach them to any Zygarde thereafter.

The Zygarde Cube was apparently found by Professor Sycamore.

In the games

In Pokémon Sun and Moon, the Zygarde Cube is a Key Item that the player receives from Dexio and Sina after battling one of them in Heahea City. As the player finds Cells and Cores, they will contact the player to explain the Zygarde Cube, Cells, and Cores.

Cells and Cores can be found in most locations in Alola, but until the player has the Zygarde Cube, none of them will be visible. Cells and Cores appear as small sparks of light on the ground, with Cells shining green and Cores shining pink.

The Reassembly Unit is found on Route 16. The Reassembly Unit can assemble a Zygarde using Cells and Cores from the Zygarde Cube or separate a Zygarde into Cells and Cores and store them in the Zygarde Cube. Separating a Zygarde is much the same as releasing a Pokémon: it is essentially lost, including any moves it learned or Ribbons it earned. However, the Reassembly Unit can also add Cells and Cores from the Zygarde Cube to a Zygarde already in the player's party to upgrade its form without affecting other data.

The Reassembly Unit will always use the maximum amount of Cells and Cores it can in assembly operations.

  • 10 Cells/Cores: Zygarde 10% Forme with Aura Break
  • 50 Cells/Cores: Zygarde 50% Forme with Aura Break
  • 100 Cells/Cores: Zygarde 50% Forme with Power Construct

If a Zygarde from the player's party is combined with Cells and Cores from the Zygarde Cube, the assembly will require fewer Cells and Cores in accordance with the Zygarde's form (e.g., upgrading a 10% Forme Zygarde to 50% Forme will only require 40 Cells and Cores). If Zygarde is assembled completely from Cells and Cores from the Zygarde Cube, its level depends on whether the player has become the Champion. Before the player has become Champion, assembled Zygarde will be level 30, but after, they will be level 50.

The Reassembly Unit will not perform any operations on a Zygarde with Power Construct. The Zygarde Cube can freely change the form of a Power Construct Zygarde between 10% Forme and 50% Forme.

Teachable moves

Depending on the Zygarde Cores that the player has found, the Zygarde Cube will be able to teach certain moves to any Zygarde.

Move Core location
Core Enforcer Ancient Poni Path (Hapu's room)
Thousand Arrows Iki Town (Hala's house)
Thousand Waves Route 17 (Po Town Police Station)
Extreme Speed Route 1 (player's house)
Dragon Dance Konikoni City (Olivia's room)
