Z-Ring with an Electrium Z

The Pokémon Z-Ring (Japanese: ポケモン Zリング Pokémon Z-Ring) is a battery-powered toy from Takara Tomy based on the Z-Ring from the Pokémon Sun and Moon games. It works with Pokémon Z-Crystals (Japanese: ポケモン Zクリスタル), also based on Z-Crystals from the games, at least one of which is sold with a Z-Ring. They were released in Japan on November 18, 2016, concurrently with the Sun and Moon games.

The Pokémon Z-Ring simulates a Z-Move being executed by lighting up, making sounds, and vibrating. The light and sound effects depend on the Pokémon Z-Crystal that is set on the top of the Z-Ring. The Z-Ring can be activated manually by pressing a button on the Z-Ring. In addition, the Z-Ring can interact with various other Pokémon products. The Pokémon Sun and Moon games make special high-frequency tones during the game, which are identified by the toy to automatically activate a synchronized experience with the gameplay. It can interact with Pokémon Ga-Olé, building up charges during gameplay until it can activate a Z-Move at three charges. It can react to six special bonus tracks on the Pokémon Sun & Pokémon Moon: Super Music Collection with lights, sounds, and vibrations. It also interacts with Rotom Pokédex and Moncollé Get Poké Ball toys from Tomy.

The Z-Ring also has places to hold six extra Z-Crystals around the band.
