If Solgaleo or Dusk Mane Necrozma holds a Solgaleo Z and knows the move Sunsteel Strike, it can use the Z-Move Sunshine Smasher. If Lunala or Dawn Wings Necrozma holds a Lunala Z and knows the move Moongeist Beam, it can use the Z-Move Moonlight Blaster.
Necrozma can also learn the new move Photon Geyser, which is a damage dealing Psychic move. Both forms of Necrozma have the ability Prism Armor.
Additionally, the player can use the new item Rotopon to become friends with the Rotom Pokédex. This will allow the player to access Rotom powers, such as a power that boosts experience and the Z-Rotom power. The Z-Rotom power allows the player to use an additional Z-Move during battle.
