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 a {{DL|Ultra Wormhole|Fallers|Faller}}, which are individuals who have passed through Ultra Wormholes, 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.
{{g|Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon}} are set in an alternate universe similar, but slightly different, to Sun and Moon. The events of Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon follow those of the first games, but slightly diverge in its details. Some of the worlds that the player may visit through the [[Ultra Warp Ride]] are hinted at being alternate versions of Alola, such as: the [[Ultra Space Wilds]], and the [[Ultra Ruin]], the latter being a world that is thoroughly hinted at being a destroyed [[Hau'oli City]] from an alternate dimension. In [[Episode RR]], [[Team Rainbow Rocket]] takes over the [[Festival Plaza]] and [[Aether Paradise]] in hopes of taking over other worlds using the Ultra Wormhole technology developed by the Aether Foundation. Team Rainbow Rocket is later revealed to be composed of the [[Villainous teams|villainous team]] leaders from previous generations, with [[Team Aqua]] and [[Team Magma]]'s leaders, [[Archie]] and [[Maxie]], appearing as they did in {{game|Ruby and Sapphire|s}}. It is also revealed that each of the villainous team leaders are from alternate universes where they were able to successfully achieve their plans; further cementing the concept of alternate universes. Colress plays a major role in Episode RR by sending all of the villainous leaders back to their original dimensions; when Ghetsis is being confronted, he and Colress recognize each other, despite being from alternate dimensions, showing that Colress had involvements with [[Team Plasma]] in both universes.
[[Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!]] seems to take place in an alternate universe from {{game|Red and Blue|s}} and {{game|FireRed and LeafGreen|s}} as Team Rocket was never disbanded, and Red and Blue have already defeated the [[Indigo League]] and are now renowned Pokémon Trainers. Because of this, the player characters are now composed of [[Chase]] and [[Elaine]] with Blue's role as rival being replaced by [[Trace]].
* A new region to explore, the [[Alola]] region, based on {{wp|Hawaii}}.
* The return of different overworld music depending on the [[time]] of day, which was originally introduced in [[Generation IV]].
* A new [[Villainous teams|villainous team]], [[Team Skull]].
* 18 [[Generation I]] Pokémon have a form unique to Alola known as a [[regional form]]; this aspect of Generation VII is based on [[wp:Evolutionary pressure|selective pressures]] which occur in the [[Pokémon world in relation to the real world|real world]].
* The player can move freely in any direction in any area of the game, as opposed to the eight-directional grid of the previous generation.
