==In-game continuity==
{{g|Sun and Moon}} occurs two years after the events of {{2v2|Black|White|2}} and {{v2|X and Y|s}}. Various characters from previous generations such as: [[Sina]], [[Dexio]], [[Looker]], [[Salon Maiden Anabel| Anabel]], [[Colress]], [[Red]], and [[Blue]] make appearances, with many of them looking significantly older than in previous games.
During the postgame missions in Sun and Moon, it is revealed that Anabel fell into an Ultra Wormhole prior to the events of Sun and Moon and became, what the [[International Police]] refer to as, a {{DL|Ultra Wormhole|Fallers|Faller}} and is hinted to be the same Anabel that appeared in [[Pokémon Emerald]]'s {{gdis|Battle Tower|III}}, however, she suffers from {{wp|retrograde amnesia}}. [[Professor Burnet]] who originated from the side game, [[Pokémon Dream Radar]], is revealed to be living in Alola and is researching the phenomena surrounding Ultra Wormholes.

The seventh generation focuses on themes of nature, alternate dimensions, tradition, and relationships. This generation's starters and main legendary trio designs and inspirations are heavily based on alchemical symbols and imagery. [[Rowlet]], [[Litten]], and [[Popplio]]'s designs are based on the alchemic symbols for salt (body), sulfur (spirit), and mercury (mind), respectively and the later evolutions also seeming to based on symbol variants or other alchemical symbols. The legendary trio is mainly based on celstial bodies while taking influences from alchemical imagery, specifically the [ Azoth Mandala], which is also where [[Project AZOTH]] from {{g|Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire}} gets its name: Solgaleo takes inspiration from the {{wp|Suns in alchemy|alchemical lion}} and the Sun, which represents "anima" or "soul"; Lunala is based on the Moon, which represents "spiritus" or "spirit"; and Necrozma is based on the stars and prisms, which represents "corpus" or "body".
The [[Aether Foundation]]'s name is also derives from the fifth alchemical element, {{wp|Aether (classical element)| Aether}}.
The Alolan region is one of the most vibrant regions to date. The region of Alola and its citizen's ways of life are centered in nature, as are the areas they inhabit; major examples of this are: the [[Pokémon League (Alola)|Alolan Pokémon League]], which is built into and atop a mountain, [[Mount Lanakila]], and the Alolan battle facility, the [[Battle Tree]], which is built around a tree. The Aether Foundation is an organization that wishes to heal and protect Pokémon from threats such as [[Team Skull]] or predatory Pokémon like {{p|Mareanie}}. In fact, the Alolan Pokédex is filled with more examples of Pokémon predator-prey relationships than usual. In an [ interview] with Junichi Masuda and Shigeru Ohmori, {{g|Sun and Moon|s}} were named with the idea of the revolutions of the sun and the moon in mind, and how they influence life on the Earth, as a way to "celebrate life" and express Pokémon as living creatures. In the same interview, they mention the revolutions of the celestial bodies as being an interesting metaphor for relationships.
