The Dynamax Band is a key item introduced in Generation VIII. It was invented by Oleana.

The Dynamax Band is a white wristband with some red and blue highlights. It can sometimes be a technological counterpart to Z-Ring, due to having some similar design parts, as well as having similar systems as Z-Ring and Key Stones.


It allows the player's Pokémon to Dynamax or Gigantamax in Power Spots. Each Trainer can only Dynamax a Pokémon once per battle.

All Pokémon in the Galar Pokédex can Dynamax except for Eternatus, Zacian and Zamazenta.

It is also reveal when the Pokémon are randomly Dynamaxed/Gigantamaxed without Dynamax Band, they will lose their sanity. However, those who have strong willpower while being Dynamaxed/Gigantamaxed randomly will have their sanity intact, as demonstrated by Ash's Pikachu.

  • Ash during his second visit to Galar acquired his own Dynamax Band from Leon so he could Giganatamax his Pikachu properly in their battle. After their battle, Leon let Ash keep the band as he sees him as a good unrefined Trainer. Unlike his Z-Ring and Z-Power Ring he wore in his journey in Alola, Ash only wears his Dynamax Band when he is in Galar while also participate in battles in the region. Also, Ash's Dynamax Band glowed outside the Galar region as a warning of an upcoming danger of that region.
  • Goh obtained his own Dynamax Band during his fourth visit to Galar as it was given to him by Sonia, after a Wishing Star fell close to him.
