Similar to the games, Z-Moves are powerful moves that can be executed by a Pokémon that knows an appropriate move which corresponds to the type of Z-Crystal on the Trainer's Z-Ring. According to [[Professor Kukui]] in ''[[SM001|Alola to New Adventure!]]'', only Trainers who are successful in the [[island challenge]] can use Z-Moves. As seen with [[Ash's Rowlet]] in ''[[SM011|Young Kiawe Had a Farm!]]'', Z-Moves drain a lot of the Pokémon's energy, but with adequate training, the Pokémon can reduce the amount of energy necessary to execute a Z-Move. Due to their vast blast radius and power, they can usually be used to wipe out many targets at once, like in a [[Battle Royal]].
Z-Moves were first featured in the {{series|Sun & Moon}} in episode ''[[SM001|Alola to New Adventure!]]'', where {{an|Kiawe}} and his {{TP|Kiawe|Turtonator}} used {{m|Inferno Overdrive}} with the help of Kiawe's [[Z-Ring]] and [[Firium Z]] which he used to defeat [[Zipp]]'s {{DL|Zipp|Yungoos}}, [[Tupp]]'s {{DL|Tupp|Salandit}}, and [[Rapp]]'s {{DL|Rapp|Zubat}}.
