One of the new mechanics introduced in the seventh Generation of Pokémon games is the inclusion of Z-Moves, ultra-strong attacks that can be used if a Pokémon with the right move(s) is holding the correct Z-Crystal. This guide will tell you where you can find all of the Z-Crystals in Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon.

Type Z-Crystals

Many Z-Crystals are based off of Typings and any Pokémon can use any of these Z-Crystals just as long as that Pokémon knows a move with the same Type as the Z-Crystal they are holding. Most of these Type Z-Crystals can be found by just playing through the games’ main stories.
