I name mine by number. So, Box 1 is 1-30, and so on. I generally like to try and get one of every Pokemon in my Pokemon games, and it's easier to organize and keep track of them all that way. I'll occasionally label one "Trade" or "Teams" though, to keep track of what I need to trade over, or my team setup.

I do mine by types and put appropriate wallpapers on them, that's about it.

I've gotten lazy since my 3rd gen games. I used to always sort my Pokemon by their range of levels, but I've basically left all my boxes unsorted in the 4th and 5th gen games, aside from a few exceptions. I do have a seperate box for all the Unown on my HeartGold, and for all my legendaries in every game, but other than that, they're just all over the place. Now that I've looked through this thread, it almost inspires me to go and re-organize all of my boxes.

The only 4 boxes I name: Team, Events, Legendary and Shinies.

The rest of the boxes are at their generic name.

I only keep one box named, and that's for my standard party. So I can locate my main 6 when I've been training others.

I name my boxes by family. For example, I have a Skitty and a Delcatty. I name the box Ms. Delcatty and Family. I don't put a lot of Pokemon in storage, so running out of space isn't possible.

I don't organize my boxes, wherever the Pokemon land they tend to stay there.

Although, in Black 2 I did organize my legendaries into one box.

The only time I ever organize my boxes is when I get National Dex and then I organize the boxes by thier type or habitat. For example, Magcargo and Heatran would go in Mountain section with Golem and other rock, steel, and ground types while Magmar, Blaziken, and other fire types will go under Fire section

I also keep a box for my eggs, eons and of course, my strongest Pokemon or "Stars".

Althought I have two organized and named boxes. One for my Unown collection and the other for the Pokemon I'm trading with other people.

I... don't. I don't catch enough Pokemon to fill even one box, let alone 10-15 or anything else. Filling the PokeDex has never been a goal of mine, and neither have RNGing/shiny hunting, so I only capture the Pokemon that I'm going to use on my team. And those that are given to me by NPCs, but there aren't that many of those. If I'm using anything other than 'Box 1', then that's very, very unusual for me.

In the past it was either by Type or (In Soul Silver) by Dex Color. But since then I've gotten lazy and haven't bothered with my boxes' names at all.

I don't name my boxes. I just can't be bothered because I am constantly switching Pokemon so they'd all get messed up anyway.

Level 100s

Dittos (I catch a bunch of dittos with various natures and keep them all in one box for easy access)

The names are self-explanatory. I like to organize my boxes. I'm kind of OCD about it...

I keep pokemon in numerical as well. I name the boxes based off what generations are in the box. For Example, The first 5 boxes are Kanto 1-5. Then the next 5 or so would be Johto 1-5 ect.

I name my boxes depending on how I use them: breeding, battling, fillers, to breed, trades, and utility (HM Slaves, Synchronizers, etc.).

I name them after the different types of pokemon, and store them in their respective spots. If it's a mixed type, I either put it in a box named "Mixed" or I put it in the box that best describes it's dominance over the other half-type.

(Ex. Geodude goes in "Rock")

OH YEAH, I forgot.

I named the box that had my dittos in "SexSlave" because the only purpose I have for the dittos are breeding, i.e. having sex.

For me, I dont name my boxes. I keep them the way they are.
Thats because Im not creative enough to come up with names for them.
The only pokemon I do arrange though in different boxes are shinies and unowns.

I've always named at after the types then put that sort of type in there because it's a habit, I guess. The only thing that I don't organize is my locker, but I should get real and realize that that will never get clean.

I usually just do Box 1, 2, 3, 4, so on. Not really into personalizing my box much. I do however usually make a box titled "Legendaries," and I can assume that you know what goes in there.

I usually don't take the time to my boxes so usually I leave them as is. Though in White I've been naming my boxes after certain adjectives such as "epic" and "Cool". It started when I named a box 'Sexy box" XD. Also have a box in White for starter Pokemon, cause I'm collecting all the starters and keeping them all in one box is easier.
