No, not really.
It does have the concept of C++ references however and in fact
thats how Pyhon variables work. They are all references. But
there is no real concept of a poibnter to a specific memory
location, and especially one that can be manipulated
OTOH there is in practice little need for such a low level
approach in Python. What did you have in mind thast you
thought might need a pointer?
