In Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, Z-Crystals are fragments of the light of Alola that possesses the power to turn ordinary Pokemon moves into special Z-moves. It’s been a tradition that Z-Crystals are given as rewards for successfully completing Island Trials and challenges. However, not all Z-Crystals are available through the trials facilitated by the Alola Kahunas and Captains.

There are two main kinds of Z-Crystals. There are type-specific Z-Crystals and there are Pokemon-specific Z-Crystals. This guide lists all of their locations, as well as instructions on how to acquire them.

So without further ado, I wish all the Alola trial-goers and wannabe Pokemon masters good luck on their mission to collect all the Z-Crystals in the game!
