Z-Moves, being the super-strong attacks that they are, can be game-changing as it is, and their single-use limit has been an effective means of balancing the game so far.
For competitive players, that's a huge difference. Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon follow in the footsteps of other enhanced versions like Pokemon Yellow and Pokemon Emerald by introducing more content and features on top of the original base package.
Solgaleo is the Psychic/Steel creature acquired in Pokemon Sun and Lunala is the Psychic/Ghost type from Pokemon Moon.

There will be puzzles to solve, enemies to fight, and more as the team attempts to complete their orders. Your mission is to recover Imperial intelligence vital to the rebellion's survival.
The new trailer for Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon focuses on the two new forms of Necrozma and its powerful new Z-moves. These new forms are called Dusk Mane Necrozma (in the case of Solgaleo) and Dawn Wings Necrozma (in the case of corrupted Lunala). Dusk Mane Necrozma (which occurs when Necrozma absorbs Solgaleo) will have access to a Z-Move called "Searing Sunraze Smash". Both Z-Moves look similar, teleporting the target Pokemon to another dimension to receive a particularly brutal attack.
As we reported earlier this week, RotomDex will also have an expanded role in Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon. The abilities will be unlocked via a "Roto Loto" feature that gives out the abilities at random. Using a slot machine style, players can earn new items to use like Roto Encounter which helps players find higher level wild Pokemon more often or Roto Hatch which hatches eggs at a faster rate.
Also discovered in the story is a new Z-Power Ring which will be acquired in-game and can activate to use a wider variety of Z-Moves.
Pokemon UltraSun and UltraMoon certainly seem to be a pair of fleshed-out enhancements, and you'll be able to check them out for yourself when both games launch for Nintendo 3DS on November 17.
