Not sure if there's a thread already.

But I think they should give us more box storage in Black and White. In HG/SS they gave us 18 boxes, 30 pokemon each can fit in each box. That can hold 540 pokemon.

I have all 493 Pokemon in my PC boxes on SS...and I only have 1 extra box for extra Pokemon. And that box fills up so fast that I need to transfer Pokemon to my Diamond version for storage. It's really inconvenient.

Black and White is going to bring in new Pokemon. How would I fit 493+however many new Pokemon in the storage boxes if I decide to do the national dex again? I'm really hoping for an increase in PC box storage.

i think they should add a few more boxes. its a pain if im trying to breed a certain pokemon and the boxes fill up far to fast.

I hope they keep the interface like one in Heartgold. Pokebox interface in Heartgold is very convenient. Like so much

I wish there were more boxes too.... I have a tendencey to catch more than one pokemon by accident, or breed too many... So haveing more boxes would also mean you could trade over more pokemon from other generations and have way more pokemon and a more varied team.

Maybe you'd be looking at 20 boxes with 30 spaces each?

If there's only one more box for spare Pokemon if you have a complete Pokedex in your PC, then they will boost the amount of boxes up at least enough to where you can have one box left over again with a new and more complete National Dex.

Hopefully there will be 24 boxes.

I'm going to guess that they will be going up to 650. If they do, you divide by 30. You get 21.3333 or something like that. It would be nice to round it up to a number that is even.

This gets you two extra boxes, and 21 1/3 boxes full of pkmn!

85 boxes? Lmao!....you're jokin'...right? I think it would be more appropriate if we got around 30 boxes. That would be enough to hold 900 pokemon, and that should be enough boxes for generations to come.

We could use an updated PC box as well. Like the PC box in HGSS was just...sloppy, horrible beyond belief. I think this is because it was the first time the touch screen was really incorporated in it..so that may be the reason.

^Thank you!

I hear people say that the PC for HG/SS is good, when I think its dog poo.

Also, if you do want to have it set up for gens to come, then yes 30 would be a good idea.

Agreed, I really don't want them to just copy over the same storage system from HG/SS into B/W. It's so clunky and choppy and more frustrating than anything. I'll be happy with the same touch-screen system, just smoother.

I'd be okay with an even 20 boxes, since 18 right now is good for how I organize my Pokémon (by type). I could use an extra box or two for just spare storage and spillover, which happens all too often, and transferring between other games is such a hassle :/

the boxes should be like a mini virtual world where you see them walking around and interacting..lol

and i agree, hg/ss box was sloppy, too many pop up screens..idk. the d/p was better, we could easily move from one box, and the gold hand was very useful for quick pick ups. and the way i see it, the only option we need is "move pokemon", and items. deposit/withdraw is useless to me, i can do those with the move option, both in one sitting

You want them to ripoff Digimon eh?

More boxes are needed but with that they really need to overhaul the system, possibly make a grid box system instead of a line of boxes or something. Hopefully have some sort of search function in there too.

I think 25 to 30 boxes would work nicely. With 30 that would mean we can store 900 Pokemon. There's gonna be 500-something+ , and that would leave us about 300-400 spaces for extras. There's a lot of us who breed, or collect shinies, or whatever. So I think it would be perfect.

I agree fully! I am a strong breeder, but I need the boxes, sometimes I don't go for the whole national dex, which leaves me with a little room, but then I have the starters and special guys that I cannot find where they go! It is super annoying when it comes to have 20 chimchars and only half a box..... I agree that about 30would be good, maybe 35 MAYBE!!!!!!!!!!!

insteads of a set number, how about we can make a new box every time we need to.

hmm i think that you aren´t thinking pretty well...
see this
Why do you want a Charmander , Charmeleon and Charizard? you will get that 3? Or you just have a Charizard?
So i think that 10 boxes (300Pkm) will be sufficient to keep all the 600 or something about...
20boxes is enough... just my opinion...
sorry for my bad english :D

Yes I want all 3 evolutions. I want each evolution of every Pokemon. I love the design. Why would I just want the 3rd evolutio, if say I think Charmander is cute, or if I like Charmeleon more than Charizard?

I literally have all 493 Pokemon in my boxes in SoulSilver. Literally each and every sprite. Not just the evolved forms.


They need to give us room for all 500+ Pokemon, plus lots of extra space for other pokemon. I do not agree with just having 10 or 20 boxes, it's not enough room for collectors, traders, breeders!

say i need a gengar but i forget where i put it, i just put in the species name and here he is!
this would make one breeder very happy

Hmm ok thats strange :P i just want evolved forms in boxes bcause other are saved in dex and 3/4 of pre-evolved are useless
I mean you want a charmeleon but charizard is stronger, more usefull and has a bigger moveset..this is just my opinion dont get angry :D

I'm fine with 18 Boxes. I use the first 9 for Pokémon types/type combos, and then the other 9 for extra teams/Pokémon. It usually goes...

PSY/DRGN, GRS/BUG, FIRE/PSN, WTR/ICE, ELCT/STL, GRD/ROCK, GHT/DARK, FLY/NRML, FIGHTING

I would be much more happy with more slots in the boxes, though. Maybe 48 or 54 slots for Pokémon, and I'd be happy. But I'm definitely set with 18 Boxes...

There's not enough space for the National Pokedex with just 18 boxes.

That's not how I play...if I love a pokemon in its unevolved form more than the evolved form, I keep it that way. Haven't you seen the anime? Dawn doesn't evolve her Piplup just so it gets stronger! I guess Ash's Pikachu is useless to. I think of my Pokemon as my companions, not tools for winning. Anyways, in SoulSilver, I love walking around with my Pokemon, the sprites are way cool. And more than that, I'm a collector, my collection is incomplete without EVERY Pokemon.

A Pokemon is never usless....what a cruel thing to say =/

There will be >9000 boxes!

Seriously, 20 to 22 boxes will be fine for me.

I think that aswell as increasing the amount of boxes, they should make a cheap & cheerful Pokémon Box/Ranch style game. Possibly even just a (much needed outside of Japan) update for Ranch would suffice. They simply need to remove the restriction on only being able to return to the same ID.

Another option; make a Ranch/Box style game as DSiware. You would just have to have that game inserted and you could move them across from the game to the boxes.
