There's a Young Couple that can be rematched in Ruby & Sapphire who's named Lois & Hal, a reference to Malcolm In The Middle. (They got renamed Kira & Dan in Emerald though)

In Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald there is a guitarist named Kirk, a reference to Metallica.

Also, at the Poke Transfer Lab there is a Homestuck reference when someone says "This kid is a Pokémon Trainer who has all the Gym Badges. All of them!". There's even a Doctor Who reference when the lab's professor says this when you're about to start transferring Pokemon: "Well, let's begin. Allons-y!" and after you're done: "Great! Molto Bene!"

One of the Riches in Black & White is named Draco, after the Harry Potter character Draco Malfoy.

And on Route 127 in Ruby/Sapphire, there's a Fisherman named Jonah who has a Wailmer on his team. Obvious reference to the famous story from the Bible.

Hugh and Colress in Black 2 & White 2 make a reference to Jersey Shore when they say "Come at me!".

And even the Pokemon Zekrom and Reshiram are Yu-Gi-Oh! references, Zekrom is black with red eyes while Reshiram is white with blue eyes, similar to Yu-Gi-Oh!'s Red-Eyes Black Dragon and Blue-Eyes White Dragon.

There's also one in the Pokemon movies too, in the fourth movie there is a character named Dundee who has a Croconaw with him, a reference to Crocodile Dundee.
