Pokémon Sun & Moon’s Real-Life Z-Ring Will React To Z-Moves Being Used In-Game



With the reveal of more Pokémon Sun & Moon information just a couple days ago, we also learned that the games would be getting a new addition in the form of Z-Moves—special moves that can be used once per fight, and which differ between each type of Pokémon. On top of that, it was announced that a real-life Z-Ring will be released which you wear on your wrist. [Thanks, Kotaku.]


Made by Tomy, the Z-Ring reacts to battles as they happen in-game by lighting up, vibrating, and making sounds. There will be eighteen crystals that can be used with the Z-Ring, with each crystal corresponding to one of the eighteen currently existing Pokémon types.




As far as pricing goes, the Z-Ring will cost 2,600 yen and will also be packaged alongside one Z-Crystal. Z-Crystals will also be purchasable in sets of three which will cost 599 yen, and a bundle is also being planned which will contain the Z-Ring and six Z-Crystals for a total of 4,490 yen.


Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon will release for the Nintendo 3DS worldwide on November 18th, and November 23rd in Europe.
