ArcGIS Javascript 4.12 removed the support of the custom function for each field. Previously I was able to update the set something like below to update the format of POP2013.

var popupTemplate = new PopupTemplate({
title: "Population in {NAME}",
content: "As of 2010, the population in this area was <b>{POP2010:NumberFormat}</b>." +
"As of 2013, the population here was <b>{POP2013:NumberFormat}</b>." +
"Percent change is {POP2013:populationChange}"
});

populationChange = function (value, key, data) {
// calculate the population percent change from 2010 to 2013.
}

In the new version, however, the code need to be updated to:

let popupTemplate = {
// autocasts as new PopupTemplate()
title: "Population in {NAME}",
content: populationChange,
fieldInfos: [{
fieldName: "POP2010",
format: {
digitSeparator: true,
places: 0
}
},{
fieldName: "POP10_SQMI",
format: {
digitSeparator: true,
places: 2
}
},{
fieldName: "POP2013",
format: {
digitSeparator: true,
places: 0
}
},{
fieldName: "POP13_SQMI",
format: {
digitSeparator: true,
places: 2
}
}]
};
function populationChange (feature) {
// calculate the population percent change from 2010 to 2013.
let diff = feature.graphic.attributes.POP2013 - feature.graphic.attributes.POP2010;
let pctChange = (diff * 100) / feature.graphic.attributes.POP2010;
let arrow = diff > 0 ? upArrow : downArrow;

// add green arrow if the percent change is positive.
// red arrow for negative percent change.
return (
"As of 2010, the total population in this area was {POP2010} and the density was {POP10_SQMI} sq mi.
As of 2013, the total population was {POP2013} and the density was {POP13_SQMI} sq mi.
<br /> <br />" + "Percent change is " + arrow + "<span style='color: " + (pctChange < 0 ? "red" : "green") +
";'>" + pctChange.toFixed(3) + "%</span>"
);
};

But if there are two of more features selected, feature attributes except the first feature became "Undefined". You can see no values and NaN error when you go to the next feature from popup. Please see the below screenshots.

a) first feature

b) second feature

All codes and screenshots are from: https://developers.arcgis.com/javascript/latest/sample-code/popuptemplate-function/index.html

Please fix this and also let me know if there is any work-around. 

Thanks.

In order for this to work at the latest release you'll have to specify the outFields for the popup template. The sample is being updated to reflect this but for now here's the relevant code: 

  var popupTemplate = {
// autocasts as new PopupTemplate()
title: "Population in {NAME}",
outFields: ["*"],
content: populationChange,
fieldInfos: [

Sorry about this, when I updated the sample, I forgot to add `outFields: ["*"]` to the popupTemplate. We fixed it so our next doc update should reflect this. In the meantime, please update the snippet you have above to this

let popupTemplate = {

  // autocasts as new PopupTemplate()

  title: "Population in {NAME}",

  content: populationChange,

  outFields: ["*"],

  fieldInfos: [{

    ...

That should take care of it.

Thank you both for quick response. Adding outFields: ["*"] resolved the issue.
