Hello!

When you already carry six Pokémon and you catch another one, it will be automatically teleported to the box. Therefore, I used to think that the Pokémon is not actually located in a PokéBall - the PokéBall is like a portal. This means when you send a Pokémon into the PokéBall, it is teleported somewhere - maybe to a storage of Pokémon (a storage like the farms in the movie "Matrix" where the Pokémon dreaming in a preserving liquid).

Then I thought the PokéBall dehydrated the Pokémon like the other experiments in the series "Lilo & Stitch". But in Pokémon there's no hint for dehydrogenation. Pokémon become digitized.

Pokémon are stored on the PC in a digital form. When it really work like that I have only one explanation:
The Pokeball scans the Pokémon at the moment in which it's send back to the PokéBall (in the series the red stuff that encase the Pokémon) and get all informations about the Pokémon - absolutely every information: thoughts, memories, emotions - everything the PokéBall needs to reproduce a perfect copy of the Pokémon. The Pokémon is destroyed and there is nothing left that the Trainer could notice. When you use the PokéBall to "let out" the Pokémon, the PokéBall create a completely new Pokémon that looks just like the old Pokémon, that was destroyed. This new Pokémon even has the memories of the old Pokémon and therefore it believes that it is the old Pokémon. Therefore, it's not afraid of the Pokeball, which destroys it.

What do you think how PokéBalls work?

Thank you for your answers and sorry for my bad english! I hope you could understand what I try to explain.

What you said is right. But how it work is that, when it catches a Pokemon, it transforms it into red energy. They show info whenever they get scanned by a PokeDex or PC.

The PokéBall transforms Pokémon into red energy. But the Pokémon can be saved on a PC, too. And there it's saved in digital form. So I think the red energy visualized how the PokéBall scans the Pokémon.
But have you never thought about what happens to the Pokémon when it's caught? I mean the PokéBall also alter the mind of the Pokémon and make it more obedient.

I actually did extensive research on this once. You see, the pokeballs transform the pokemon into electromagnetic energy, hence the red light, and uses a suction force to pull the pokemon in. When electromagnetic energy comes into contact with matter it produces heat, too much heat. That's why the copper pins are in there. They absorb the heat and cool it down. The mirrors are to center the pokemon in to the data collection source, the green ball middle. It will then do all the info, connect the data to the other pokeballs, pokedex, etc. The pokemon is still the same energy stored in the data source or else there would be no way for it to retain emotion or memory. If you have any questions, feel free to PM or VM me. Hope I could help!

I just thought the pokeball "stores" the pokemon, and never thought of the technical details.

Like I said EXTENSIVE research, took me a month I think to try to take everything into matter. I had a whole report style thing on my old laptop but that sort of went *boom* overheat. If you have any questions please VM or PM me. Bye!

No they don't sense each other or teleport (at least by choice anyway)
Like I said, when the Pokemon is captured, it registers the data to the other pokeballs
Then if the balls register 7, the last captured will go to the PC.
Your pokeballs are registered to each other when you buy them most likely to share the same code by seeing your trainer card, the cashier will scan them and activate them, like a credit card.
If you have any questions PM or VM me, glad I could help!

Watching Pokemon when I was younger, then wondering about this same thing my entire life, I've concluded: magic.
Edit: Sorry, I'd posted this without reading through, glad someone thinks the same thing haha

I go by Pokemon Special/Adventure logic here and it is IN FACT possible to have multiple pokemon but it is a faux pa since you cant concentrate on each of your poekmons if you have too many.
Thats why Bill actually built the Box-system in the first place.

For the Pokeballs thesmelf I always assumed that the Pokemon themself are actually unstable on a genetic level, in which the give off EM-energy (it would also explain why Electric pokemon can produce lightning from their bodys):
This also causes their evolution. Pokemon-stones (leaf, fire, and so on) give off a radiation which enfuses thsoe for evolution.

Thats why I agree mostly with Pikakittens theory

Hm. Let's see now.

Pokémon, when caught, enters the PokéBall as a red light, resulting from what PikaKitten said -- electromagnetic energy. Hence, we now know how PokéBalls work, but we don't know how the PokéBall is automatically sent to a computer system if we already own six Pokémon.

Let's think this through, guys. In the Pokémon Anime, Ash sends his seventh or more Pokémon to Professor Oak. This is Pokémon General, so the Anime is also included. The player -- or in the Anime case, Ash -- sends his excess PokéBalls to a professor.

Game-wise, I have no idea.

I've technically already answered this, I'm guessing that it goes to Prof. Oak because Ash maybe shares a PC account with him, as they both tend to use it. Game-wise would work too with my idea, though it never shows it being scanned though you know it has too because buying 100 pokeballs?! Just scan 1 and times it 100 and it shouldn't take more than a few seconds.

Scanning Pokeballs at the mart makes sense, until you get into the ones people give you, or you find on the ground.

I reckon this is where trainer cards and trainer IDs come into play. Maybe the Pokeball can read your number or something, or a chip in the card, then it's registered to you.

True, I didn't think of that. I guess it's only reasonable that the chip be in your card, it helps make the connecting to the PC, pokeballs, Pokedex; nav, gear, watch, etc. a lot easier. It's all connected to your ID, now it serves a bigger purpose xD
