I like to keep an organized system, having certain types of Pokémon together in one box that generalizes them based on their elements. So I'll have my fire box, water box, poison box, etc.

How I go about naming each box is by Final Fantasy spells. So my fire box is named "Firaga", water is "Waterga", poison is "Poisona", ghosts and ground types go in "Darkra", and I even have a cutie box (with Eevee, Jigglypuff, Clefairy, etc.) titled "Bubble". And rock/steel types go into the "Shellga" box.

I assign each wallpaper accordingly.

Yeah, I have fun with it.

I also did the type deal for a long time, but the huge discrepancies between the amount of pokemon per type group made the system inefficient in terms of wasting space. Now I just sort them by level, since B2W2 has a search function, sorting them has become a non-issue.

I see what you're saying. That's why I dedicate some to appearance, like the "cutie" types of Pokemon. Especially for normal ones, which there's a lot of.

Fun stuff.

If my game becomes a storage game, I usually organize by types, legendaries, and shinies. If something is shiny and legendary, it'll just go in the legendary box. I like to match the wallpaper to the box's content as well. I sometimes organize by what generation the Pokemon was introduced, but that's done in a lazy way and it doesn't get pretty wallpaper.

I'm quite proud of what I've got going on. It inspires me to actually go get certain types, which is sometimes a huge pain in the ass for me cause....I dunno. I just want to go on with the story.

My boxes are kinda random, whatever box a Pokemon happens to land in is the one they stay in until I withdraw haha. As for the names, Box1/whatever the generic name is will suffice. Soooo lazy. :3

I am a bit of a neat freak... I usually set up Box 1 as "New" for when I catch one past my six-carry limit, One for Eggs, One for Unknowns, and the rest are categorized by Pokedex National numbers by slot.

If you think it's a tiring process.... IT IS!

LoL

If I can be bothered the most I'll do is change the wallpapers of my box. I'm not one to be particularly fussy about the organisation of my Pokemon.

I don't usually name my PC storage boxes, but I did name some of them like this "VS...(name of opponent)" to get ready for a battle.

If I have a lot of pokes I do tend to name the boxes. Team for team pokes, and in Soul silver i sorted them according to Pokeathlon abilities(strengths, speed etc)
Other wise, I may sort them by level or most commonly by type (dark, electro etc)

Depends on which game version I have at the time, plus the amount of Pokemon I have in my storage boxes. Although, I like to keep separate boxes named like "Level 100" or/and "Eggs" for those Pokemon at Lv100 and all of my unhatched eggs, so I can easily find them.

All I really used to do is make a box for eggs and then change the wallpapers, but I don't even do that anymore.

I have one box for members of old teams from files I've deleted called "Heroes," then a box for Pokemon I've bred that I haven't used yet called "Recruits" and then a box called "Pink" for all the pink shinies I've collected! Then the rest aren't named and used for random storage.

Box 1, Box 2, Box 3, etc. I don't name or organize my boxes. I just randomly let Pokemon get put in the boxes and I find them when I need them.

I don't name my boxes, nor decorate them. But I do organize them, because I'm an organizing freak. xD I separate them by Party Pokemon I'm using, HM-slaved Pokemon, Currently-in-training Pokemon, Baby Pokemon, and eggs.

I'm stealing this idea. Apparently this message is too short.

Newbies 1-3 - First three boxes where newly caught Pokémon go before sorting.
Favourites - Favourites/team Pokémon.
Warriors - For competitive Pokémon.
Cuties - For cute Pokémon.
Fodder - For random/rubbish Pokémon that I don't intend to use.
Breeders - Pokémon that will be used for breeding (egg moves etc).
Fillers - Pokémon that need evolving/breeding for Pokédex completion.
Relics - Final box Pokémon traded over from previous games or rare/event legendaries go for safe keeping.

And that usually takes up all my boxes with some sections having more than one box dedicated to them. And yes, I did put too much thought into organising them. :D

I don't name my boxes, but I do change their wallpapers to make them distinctive.

I don't name or organise my boxes. Whatever goes into them stays as it is. I do make sure there are no empty spaces in any filled box though. Doesn't look good.

Oh, there is one exception. I put all my legendaries and pokemon with hidden abilities into a separate box. I feel that they are special and need special treatment lols.

Sometimes when I feel up to it I would ocasionally feel like organising my box by their type, or usage, or whether they need training or not. etc. different things. And sooner or later I eventually mess it up only for me to maybe fix it much, much later

I usually don't name my PC boxes until end game or late into the game. Though, when I do name my boxes it is according to type or in a way as to sort the Pokemon that I am breeding and their eggs, etc.

All I do is use a few boxes left from 1 for storage of things I use, to keep them apart from PokeDex fillers.

I put all 600+ pokemons in numerical order.

in my older games, I started at box 1, but now I'm going to skip to about box 3/4 before I start listing out all the pokemons. Easier to organize this way.
