What is Ultimate Z?
Ultimate Z (or UZ for short) allows you to use any type of Z-Crystal on any move and as many times per battle as desired. The Z-Move of the type of the Z-Crystal used is called. For example, if you use a Firium Z on the move Thunderbolt, it calls the Fire-type Z-Move, Inferno Overdrive. This allows you to have powerful coverage moves that your Pokémon normally lack. Or, if you prefer, you can take advantage of the unlimited Z-Move usage on one of their STABs!

Z-Moves that boost Evasion
Excadrill @ Firium Z
Ability: Sand Rush
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe
- Iron Head
- Rock Slide
- Rapid Spin / Swords Dance
Excadrill can run Firium Z for a 180 base power Fire-type move to deal with the usual Pokémon that wall it, such as Skarmory, Celesteela and Tangrowth.
Mimikyu @ Ghostium Z
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
- Play Rough
- Shadow Sneak
- Will-O-Wisp / Destiny Bond
With Ghostium Z, Mimikyu finally has a powerful Ghost STAB. Z-Splash is an upgrade over Swords Dance, and Shadow Sneak remains for priority.
Volcarona @ Firium Z
Ability: Flame Body
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
- Quiver Dance
- Fire Blast
- Giga Drain
- Hidden Power Ground
Volcarona can fire off a powerful STAB Z-Move throughout the battle. Not very effective? Psh.
Zapdos @ Electrium Z
EVs: 248 HP / 240 Def / 20 Spe
- Volt Switch
- Heat Wave
- Hidden Power Ice / Defog
Why pick between Thunderbolt and Volt Switch? With Electrium Z, Zapdos has a reliable Electric STAB and can still run Volt Switch for momentum.
How do Status moves work with a different type Z-Crystal?
As they normally work. For example, Z-Sleep Powder will increase Speed by one with any Z-Crystal.
What happens to Pokémon specific Z-Crystals?
UZ only affects the different typed Z-Crystals. Pokémon specific Z-Crystals maintain their original requirements.
Is there any limit to Z-Move usage?
No. As mentioned earlier, you can use Z-Moves an infinite number of times in the same battle.
Is this playable?
UZ is playable on ROM thanks to urkerab!
