The Pokémon multiverse refers to a number of alternate universes in Pokémon media.

In the core series games

Pokémon Black and White

In Pokémon Black and White, it is said that Opelucid City from two worlds is different: one version of the city is modernW and the other is traditionalB. This is referenced when the characters ThymeB and BachW (at the building east of Drayden's house) request a Pokémon with Charge from another world (the opposite version).

Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire

In Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, Zinnia mentions that there is another Hoenn with no Mega Evolution. This is a reference to Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald, which are earlier games set in Hoenn, released before the Mega Evolution mechanic was introduced.

In Pokémon Omega Ruby, Archie mentions another world in which the player would battle Team Aqua. Similarly, in Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, Maxie mentions another world in which the player would battle Team Magma. This implies that Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire take place in alternate universes.

Pokémon Sun and Moon

In Pokémon Sun and Moon, Anabel is mentioned to have fallen onto Poni Island from another universe via an Ultra Wormhole, and was found by Looker and Nanu ten years before the events of the game. She remembers that she came from Hoenn and was a powerful Trainer who protected a tower, referencing her role in Pokémon Emerald.

Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon

In Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, Team Rainbow Rocket has recruited some villainous team leaders summoned from alternate worlds where they had succeeded in their goals: Giovanni, Maxie, Archie, Cyrus, Ghetsis, and Lysandre. All of these leaders use Legendary Pokémon in battle. Archie and Maxie appear in their Generation III designs, while Ghetsis appears in his design from Pokémon Black and White.

In the anime
