Also in ''Alola to New Adventure!'', {{Ash}} received a Z-Ring from {{DL|Guardian deities (anime)|Tapu Koko}}, fitted with an [[Electrium Z]]. Although the Electrium Z shattered during Ash's battle with Tapu Koko in ''[[SM002|The Guardian's Challenge!]]'', he has since then started collecting new Z-Crystals by clearing trials. In ''[[SM009|To Top a Totem!]]'', it was revealed that [[Hala]] makes his own Z-Rings and that Ash's Z-Ring was in fact Hala's Z-Ring that had been taken by Tapu Koko.
 
As in the {{pkmn|games}}, each [[Island Kahuna]] carries a Z-Ring in the anime, fitted with a Z-Crystal of their [[Type expert|specialty type]]. The first of these appeared in ''To Top a Totem!'', belonging to Hala. He was first seen using it in ''[[SM010|Trial and Tribulation!]]'' during his battle with Ash in the {{isl|Melemele}} grand trial. Olivia's Z-Ring first appeared in ''[[SM031|The Island Whisperer!]]'', but was first used in ''[[SM036|Trials and Determinations!]]'' during her battle with Ash in the {{isl|Akala}} grand trial. [[Nanu]] used his Z-Ring in ''[[SM077|Guiding an Awakening!]]'' to perform {{m|Black Hole Eclipse}} with his {{alorf|Alolan}} {{p|Persian}} during his battle with Ash in the {{isl|Ula'ula}} grand trial. [[Hapu]] was shown to own a Z-Ring in ''[[SM104|That's Some Spicy Island Research!]]'', although she was not a Kahuna yet at the time. In ''[[SM105|Showdown on Poni Island!]]'', she revealed that she had received her Z-Ring from [[Sofu|her grandfather]], a former Kahuna of [[Poni Island]]. She was first seen using it in ''[[SM109|A Grand Debut!]]'' after becoming a Kahuna during her grand trial against Ash.
 
A Z-Ring belonging to {{an|Gladion}} first appeared in ''[[SM027|A Glaring Rivalry!]]''. He used it to perform {{m|Continental Crush}} with his {{TP|Gladion|Lycanroc}}.
In ''[[PASM02|The Delivery of Rotom and the Girl]]'', {{adv|Sun}} received a [[Sparkling Stone]] from {{p|Tapu Koko}}. In ''[[PASM06|The Party Crasher and Guzma the Destroyer]]'', Sun used the Sparkling Stone as a splint for his broken arm. When angered by [[Gladion]] in ''[[PASM07|The Final Match and a Surprising Finale!]]'', Sun accidentally used the Z-Move {{m|Inferno Overdrive}} with his {{adv|Dollar}}, defeating [[Gladion's Type: Null]]. Due to the strain of using the attack, Sun immediately passed out from exhaustion. [[Hala]] took the Sparkling Stone in order to convert it into a Z-Ring for Sun to use. Once completed, Hala had [[Kahili]] deliver it to Sun at the [[Ruins of Life]].
 
In ''[[PASM03|Pokémon Move Specialist Professor Kukui]]'', [[Olivia]] and her {{DL|List of Pokémon with form differences|Lycanroc|Midnight Form}} {{p|Lycanroc}} attempted to use {{m|Continental Crush}} against [[Nanu]] and his {{alorf|Alolan}} {{p|Persian}}, who retaliated with {{m|Black Hole Eclipse}}. The attacks were stopped by Hala, who didn't want them to destroy the battle field they were fighting on.
 
In ''[[PASM12|The Wild Full-Power Pose of Fire]]'', Kiawe is revealed to own a Z-Ring, which he received as a Sparkling Stone from {{p|Tapu Lele}} five years prior to the {{chap|Sun, Moon, Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon}}. He intended to have Sun borrow it to battle Gladion, but it was destroyed by Gladion's Type: Null, leaving only the Sparkling Stone intact. It was later repaired by Olivia and returned to him.
