An Ultra Wormhole (Japanese: ウルトラホール Ultra Hole) is an unstable portal connecting the Pokémon world to Ultra Space discovered by Professor Mohn.
Not much is known about what causes Ultra Wormholes to form, but it is known that Cosmog can open it under heavy duress, at the cost of expending a lot of its energy, whereas its final evolutions Solgaleo and Lunala can open them more easily. Necrozma and its two other forms can also open Ultra Wormholes.
In Pokémon Sun and Moon, the Ultra Beasts entered the Alola region through multiple Ultra Wormholes when Lusamine forced Nebby to use almost all of its strength to open them.
In Pokémon Sun and Moon, the player can travel through a spacetime rift at the top of the Altar of the Sunne (in Pokémon Sun) or the Altar of the Moone (in Pokémon Moon), which takes them to a parallel world where the time of day is opposite to their original world and with the Altar of the Sunne or Moone and the Lake of the Sunne or Moone replaced by their counterparts. They can only travel through this spacetime rift if they are the Champion and have Solgaleo in the party at night or Lunala during the day. In this parallel world, the spacetime rift is replaced by an Ultra Wormhole that the player can travel through at any time.
In Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, the player can travel through Ultra Wormholes by riding on the back of Solgaleo or Lunala. While traveling through Ultra Space, they can encounter Ultra Wormholes that lead them to the worlds of individual Ultra Beasts. They can also find warp holes that take them to locations that are light-years away that may contain Legendary Pokémon.
Some humans have passed through Ultra Wormholes, such as Anabel, and are known as Fallers (Japanese: Ｆａｌｌ). They have a strange energy about them that the Ultra Beasts mistake for another wormhole, causing them to pursue Fallers under the impression that they are the way back home. The International Police has quietly assigned Fallers as bait to lure out Ultra Beasts in their missions to stop them. Examples of this include an unnamed female Faller who accompanied Looker and Nanu on a mission to track down a Guzzlord, and the player in Looker and Anabel's missions to catch the Ultra Beasts.

Two Ultra Wormholes appeared in SM044, where Ash saw them in a dream. He witnessed a Solgaleo and a Lunala each emerging from them one of them, and promised to take care of Nebby for the two Legendary Pokémon. These same wormholes reapparead in a flashback in SM051.
An Ultra Wormhole was seen in flashback scenes in SM047 and SM049, where it was opened up by Faba using a machine, and a Nihilego emerged from it. The Ultra Beast took notice of Lillie and proceeded to attack her. As it tried to take Lillie away, she was rescued by Silvally who attacked Nihilego and sent it retreating back into the Ultra Wormhole, which then disappeared.
In SM050, Faba used Nebby's power to open an Ultra Wormhole, which a Nihilego entered through. The Ultra Beast attempted to take Lillie with it, but Lusamine protected her and Gladion, causing the Parasite Pokémon to take her with itself back through the wormhole, which closed in its wake.
In SM052, Ash perfomed Searing Sunraze Smash with Nebby, who had just evolved into Solgaleo, allowing it to open an Ultra Wormhole for Ash, his classmates, and Gladion to travel though to Ultra Deep Sea, where they arrived in the next episode. After saving Lusamine from the alien world, the group returned back to their own world through another wormhole created by Nebby in SM054. This wormhole was briefly seen again in a flashback in the next episode.
In SM061, an Ultra Wormhole opened in the sky above Melemele Meadow, from which a Buzzwole fell through. After the Ultra Guardians had successfully captured Buzzwole, Professor Burnet temporarily opened a new wormhole above the meadow, allowing Buzzwole to return to its homeworld.

In the Sun & Moon chapter, Moon first spotted an Ultra Wormhole in the sky near Mahalo Trail, just before saving Nebby from a flock of Spearow. Afterwards, when Gladion arrived late for the tournament at an Iki Town festival, he revealed that the reason for his absence was the same wormhole, which was spotted by and worried his Type: Null.
During Sun and Gladion's battle at the festival tournament, a large amount of energy shot from the Ultra Wormhole and entered Sun's Sparkling Stone. The energy allowed Sun and his En to use a Z-Move to defeat Gladion's Type: Null and win the tournament.
When Moon and Mallow traveled to Lush Jungle, they witnessed Tapu Lele battling a Xurkitree emerging from an Ultra Wormhole in the sky above the forest. Moon attempted to capture Xurkitree with a Poké Ball-tipped arrow fired from her bow, but the Ultra Beast avoided capture and retreated back into the Wormhole, which then closed shut.
