~ The Z-Ring's item description from Pokemon Sun and Moon
The Z-Ring is a key item from the Pokémon series. It was introduced in the seventh generation of games.
The Z-Ring is a bracelet that a Pokémon trainer can wear to increase the power of one of their Pokémon. Z-Rings can be equipped with different Z-Crystals, which emit powerful energy known as Z-Power, similar to the one that manifests itself when an Ultra Wormhole opens. Z-Power is believed to have originated from the scattered light energy released by Necrozma.
