Dimensions

“Dimensions”, “realms” or “'verses” could be considered as separate instances, timelines or even continuities of the overall Pokémon multiverse that are separate from each other. An example common in canon is the distinction between Mainline and PMD, where even some foundational mechanics are different.

Frankly any number of terms could be used to identify them as there is not a precise definition even in canon. For ease of use, “Dimension” or “Realm” are used always capitalized when taken with this semantic meaning in mind.

Overall description of the “dimensions” that can exist in the Suocéverse.

  • Mainline Verse: Also called Mainline Dimension, “Pokéarth” or “Pokémon World”, is the dimension (sometimes limited to the Earth-like world/planet) where we see most of the adventures that can be mapped to the mainline part of the Pokémon franchise — that is, the one where eg.: the regions of Kanto, etc., happen to exist.
  • Distortion Dimension: The canon “Distortion World”, an analogue but much emptier and more chaotic dimension where Giratina resides.
  • The canon “Dream World”.
  • The canon PMD Dimension: See Mystery Dungeon world. Sometimes called PMD World for short, basically is the equivalent to the Pokémon World (PMD) (sometimes limited to the world/planet they seem to share) that is central to the PMD games.
  • At least one alternate dimension based on the concept of the anime’s Mirror World or Futurama’s negation world - ie.: a universe where the rules of physics and stuff remain the same, but the result of choice or randomness is the boolean or Bernoulli negation where choices functionally similar to the toss of a coin are concerned.
  • An unnamed dimension with Pokémon civilizations but no humans, where adventures like “Blink, Slowly|:!: N/A? are hinted to take place.

The rest of the list starting at this point exists mostly for completeness, it’s unlikely ATM (late 2021) that they’ll feature onscreen.

  • The dimension where Ghost Pokémon are stated to live in anime / manga canon.
  • The zeroth dimension or Museum Dimension”, where Arceus is said to reside. Hosts a sort of “Earth Prime” as well as the Hall of Origin, Cave of Challengers and a sort of mesohistory-scale Safari Zone with mons extinct or even yet to exist, hence the name. Probably take clues from world of Limbus in FFXI for its design. This world is normally only accessible by the Lake / Creation Trios, or by use of the Azure Flute.
  • One alternate dimension with a fundamentally different topology - such as the “planet” being flat and endless this despite it actually floating in space around the Sun and having days, nights and seasons. Something closer to a “Minecraft world” (except not blocky, and hopefully without Creepers).
