Z-Crystal replicas in the anime

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

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.

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.

In the anime

Z-Crystals first appeared in Alola to New Adventure!, where a Firium Z appeared on Kiawe's Z-Ring, which he obtained by completing Olivia's grand trial. Later in the same episode, Ash received an Electrium Z with his Z-Ring from Tapu Koko, but in the following episode, it shattered after Ash performed Gigavolt Havoc with Pikachu.

The island challenge is one way of obtaining Z-Crystals, though it is not necessarily the only way a Trainer can obtain them. Ash's goal in Alola is to complete the island challenge and collect the Z-Crystals in order to prove himself worthy of the power of Z-Moves.

A full set of replicas of the type-specific Z-Crystals appeared in A Team-on-Team Tussle!, where they were shown to Ash and his classmates by Professor Kukui.
