Pokémon Sun and Moon: All Z-Crystal Locations

One of the most prominent features advertised with this new iteration of Pokemon games has been the inclusion of Z-Moves. But what you may not know is how to use them.

For a Pokemon to be able to use it’s Z-Move, players need to be in possession of an item known as a Z-Ring, as well as Z-Crystals that match the type of move itself.  For example, a Water oriented Z-Crystal for a Water type move. As also seen from the numerous trailers, there are also crystals only usable by specific Pokemon like Snorlax and Pikachu.
