The Pokemon Z-Ring Set Meant For Pokemon Enthusiasts Who Play Pokemon!
If you are a Pokemon fan, you are going to be excited about the new twist to the Pokemon Sun and Moon game. The company is bringing out Z-Moves. Z-Ring Set
Remember the Pokemon Go accessory that buzzes when you are near a Pokemon? Well, the Pokemon Sun and Moon game will have an accessory called a Z-Ring. Even though it is called a Z-Ring, it is actually a bracelet that tracks Z-Moves you make in the game and lights up and makes noises when you do these moves.
The Japanese toymaker Takara Tomy hopes that it will be popular with young Pokemon players, and it does sound like a pretty cool level of fun. It lets them feel even more like they are part of the battle. He is also hoping to build a collectible industry, so he hopes that these will become collectibles.
Z-Moves are a new part of the Pokemon Sun and Moon series. They are strong attacks than can only be used once in each battle.
The Sun and Moon are set on a series of tropical Islands called the Alolla region, which is packed with new Pokemon and challenges.
The Z-Ring wrist strap reportedly comes with three crystals that each makes a specific combination of light and sounds when a particular move in the game is done and a Pickachu figure.
However, there are actually 18 crystals that can be collected, as they are sold in crystal packs. The crystals contained in any pack are random, so the idea is that players will buy more packs than they need and trade with other players. These crystals come in packs of three for $6. The Z-Ring is an interactive replica of the bracelet worn by the lead character in the new video game.
The Takara Tomy website lists some features of the Z-Ring that are “coming soon”, so we can expect some surprises as the novelty wears off – a smart move for the toy maker.
So, how does the Z-Ring work? A Pokemon carrying a Z-Crystal matching the one in the player’s bracelet can perform special Z-Move attacks. Crystals are based on Pokemon types and can be found in the Alola Region. Players perform a special routine to bond with their Pokemon, who can then unleash the attack. Moves are accompanied by special effects, such as a lightening bolt for the electric-type Gigavolt Havoc, giant flowers for grass-type Pokemon’s Bloom Doom, a fireball for Inferno Overdrive, and a whirlpool for Hydro Vortex. A Z-Move unleashes the combined power of the player and his Pokemon.
The Z-Ring does require two AAA batteries that come with the device.
It seems that these Z-Rings will be in high demand, urged on by the description releases, so this should be an exciting holiday season for Pokemon enthusiasts.
