* KagerouDaze: In the second timeline shown in the manga, Ene is living in Shintaro's computer, just like in the first timeline. This happens despite the fact that the event that led to her doing that, [[spoiler: being killed by the Clearing Eyes Snake in Kenjirou's body,]] did not happen in the second timeline.

** Zig-zagged heavily with ''VideoGame/PokemonUltraSunAndMoon''. Despite being touted as an "{{alternate|Universe}}" version of ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'' with a drastically different story, the alterations to the plot of ''Sun/Moon'' are minimal prior to the events at Po Town and [[spoiler:the second trip to Aether Paradise]]. Most notably, the only significant changes are the appearances by the Ultra Recon Squad and the Aether Foundation's collaboration with them to investigate [[EldritchAbomination the Ultra Beasts]], whereas ''Sun/Moon'' suggests Lusamine and her top subordinates had been looking into the matter of [=UBs=] but hadn't seen one in person until a stray Nihilego warped into Aether Paradise's conservation area. Although [[spoiler:Lillie]]'s [[AbusiveParents backstory]] seems to be unchanged, [[spoiler:Lusamine]]'s [[AdaptationalHeroism villainous traits are somewhat downplayed while their motivations are made more (openly) sympathetic]], as it is directly mentioned how [[spoiler:the disappearance of Lusamine's husband Mohn into an Ultra Wormhole]] was the catalyst for [[spoiler:her stark change in behavior and her treatment of Lillie and Gladion]], something that was only stated speculatively in ''S/M'' by [[spoiler:Gladion]] after the conflict is resolved. Necrozma also plays a more direct role in the story as opposed to being relegated to the post-game, and while [[spoiler:Lusamine]] still wants to use [[ThinkingUpPortals Nebby's power]] in order to open a gateway to [[EldritchLocation Ultra Space]] so that they can [[spoiler:"love" and "protect" Pokémon]], they declare that their main goal is to stop Necrozma from harming their world after hearing the Ultra Recon Squad's tales about the Blinding One. So, instead of the player pursuing them to Ultra Space with the help of Solgaleo/Lunala and [[spoiler:Lusamine fusing with a Nihilego]], things go quite differently. [[labelnote:Spoilers!]]Lusamine and Guzma end up being ejected from Ultra Space right after the player and Lillie evolve Nebby into Solgaleo/Lunala, having failed to stop Necrozma, who then appears at Altar of the Sunne/Altar of the Moone, defeats and assimilates Nebby, escapes to Ultra Megapolis (the home of the Ultra Recon Squad, a world without light beyond the Ultra Wormholes where Necrozma was previously imprisoned to prevent it from running amok by consuming the light of other worlds), transforms into Ultra Necrozma, and is finally defeated for good, freeing Nebby in the process. Lillie goes home with Lusamine to tend to Nebby rather than departing for [[VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue Kanto]] after the main game to get Bill to treat the residual neurotoxins left in Lusamine by Nihilego from their merger, with the implication that their mother-daughter relationship will be more easily and quickly repaired. It is Gladion who instead leaves Alola during the epilogue to go on a journey, though he's also on better terms with his mother (as indicated by his smile when Lusamine sees him off along with Wicke and other Aether Foundation employees). Necrozma can later be encountered during the ascent up Mount Lanakila prior to facing the Pokémon League, Molayne is part of the Elite Four instead of Hala, and your {{Friendly Rival|ry}} Hau takes Professor Kukui's place as the final challenge to the player being crowned Alola's first-ever Champion.[[/labelnote]] Even so, certain other events like [[spoiler:Guzma and Plumeria disbanding Team Skull]] happen as they did in the original games and the story more so or less ends on the same note.

** Speaking of ''Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire'', a small-scale example of this trope comes in the form the Battle Frontier seen in ''Emerald''. This facility, which was a replacement for/expansion of the Battle Tower from ''Ruby/Sapphire'', does not exist in the remakes' timeline, instead having been "replaced" by the Battle Resort. However, the Battle Resort itself is suggested to be the predecessor to the Battle Frontier, as a man at the Battle Maison located within the Resort appears to be recruiting for Scott, the Battle Frontier's owner, and mentions that the position of Pike Queen has been scouted, most likely referring to Lucy, the Frontier Brain of the same title in ''Emerald''. ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'' confirms this even further, as it features [[spoiler: Anabel, who is implied to be the very one from ''Emerald'' instead of the one in the Mega Evolution timeline; she mentions being from Hoenn and having a tower to guard despite having lost her memories -- but as noted above, the Battle Frontier ''hasn't yet been built at the time of OR/AS''. Interpol refers to her as a "Faller," someone who has explicitly traveled between dimensions via Ultra Wormholes.]]

** Zig-zagged heavily with ''VideoGame/PokemonUltraSunAndMoon''. Despite being touted as an "{{alternate|Universe}}" version of ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'' with a drastically different story, the alterations to the plot of ''Sun/Moon'' are minimal prior to the events at Po Town and [[spoiler:the second trip to Aether Paradise]]. Most notably, the only significant changes are the appearances by the Ultra Recon Squad and the Aether Foundation's collaboration with them to investigate [[EldritchAbomination the Ultra Beasts]], whereas ''Sun/Moon'' suggests Lusamine and her top subordinates had been looking into the matter of [=UBs=] but hadn't seen one in person until a stray Nihilego warped into Aether Paradise's conservation area. [[spoiler:Lillie]]'s [[AbusiveParents backstory]] seems to be unchanged, but [[spoiler:Lusamine]]'s [[AdaptationalHeroism villainous traits are somewhat downplayed while their motivations are made more (openly) sympathetic]], as it is directly mentioned how [[spoiler:the disappearance of Lusamine's husband Mohn into an Ultra Wormhole]] was the catalyst for [[spoiler:her stark change in behavior and her treatment of Lillie and Gladion]], something that was only stated speculatively by [[spoiler:Gladion]] the original games after the fact. Necrozma also plays a more direct role in the story as opposed to being relegated to the post-game, and while [[spoiler:Lusamine]] still wants to use [[ThinkingUpPortals Nebby's power]] in order to open a gateway to [[EldritchLocation Ultra Space]] so that they can [[spoiler:"love" and "protect" Pokémon]], they declare that their main goal is to stop Necrozma from harming their world after hearing the Ultra Recon Squad's tales about the Blinding One. So, instead of the player pursuing them to Ultra Space with the help of Solgaleo/Lunala and [[spoiler:Lusamine fusing with a Nihilego]], things go rather differently. [[labelnote:Spoilers!]]Lusamine and Guzma end up being ejected from Ultra Space right after the player and Lillie evolve Nebby into Solgaleo/Lunala, having failed to stop Necrozma, who then appears at Altar of the Sunne/Altar of the Moone, defeats and assimilates Nebby, escapes to Ultra Megapolis (the home of the Ultra Recon Squad, a world without light beyond the Ultra Wormholes where Necrozma was previously imprisoned to prevent it from running amok by consuming the light of other worlds), transforms into Ultra Necrozma, and is finally defeated for good, freeing Nebby in the process.

* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}:
* The Delta Episode of ''[[VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire]]'' implies this of the ''Pokémon'' timelines: the mechanic of Mega Evolution, discovered in the ancient past by [[BigDamnHeroes Rayquaza putting a stop to the end of the world]], is a well-hidden secret, though numerous Trainers of varying degrees of skill and plot importance have access to it. The Delta Episode implies the existence of [[AlternateUniverse another world, almost identical]], where Mega Evolution wasn't discovered -- this world being the setting for all games prior to Generation VI (with ''VideoGame/PokemonXAndY'' showing that [[ForWantOfANail the catalyst]] for Mega Evolution itself was [[spoiler:the firing of AZ's ultimate weapon 3,000 years earlier]]). Aside from a few details, the same Trainers exist and operate in almost the same capacity without the [[SuperMode Mega Evolved Pokémon]], many of which are drastically different or have [[OlympusMons world-ending power]].
