I sorted my boxes by type as far back as Gen 2. Had to combine types sometimes but it worked.

I started doing the same in Diamond until I decided to do a living Pokédex. So I ordered my boxes by National Dex number... and left a space for each Pokémon. It was great for organization since so long as I had a rough idea of where a Pokémon was, I could easily find it. Only issue was it gave me only one and a half boxes for doubles, eggs, etc. D: But I kept with it until recently when I gave up on the living Dex & transferred all my Pokémon onto Ranch anyway. (And now my boxes go "Team Members", "Legendaries", and then about 6 boxes of Cherubi. :D)

I have no rhyme or reason to my organization in HG or Platinum. Things are just tossed haphazardly into the boxes until it switches to the next box.

Because I tend to not keep an abundance of Pokemon, I just leave them in any random order in the first few boxes, but I do keep a special Unown box with all of them in it. In Sapphire, however, I had all of my boxes sorted out by level, with a box for my newly captured Pokemon before they went into sorting.

You use the same strategy I use basically.

I'm a person who LOVES to make monotype teams for fun battles with my friends and I often find myself making one of these teams then I put them all together in one box row and then most other pokemon of the shared element I stick into the rest of that pc box.

Then I switch the background to something appropriate.

Pokemon Box Organization? I usually have the first box set for Pokemon obtained by trades through GTS and normal trading, plus any Pokemon Eggs I have. The last box numbered is for the Unowns I get to complete the set. The boxes numbered before the box with Unowns are for my Legendaries and Pokemon I use regularly.

Every other box between 2 and 14-15 are free game.

I tried to do the Type thing but it didn't worked well after the 1st box of Flying was full.

Tried with Level, but had the same problem.

So now, I only do "Box 1 for legendaries" and put the rest together. Like, all Rhyhorns in the same row, all Eeves on the other, etc.
-Leader of the Cumulonimbus
-Founder of the Iron Cast

Will I EVER get a pair?

I don't calculate stat values, I don't breed my way to perfection, and I don't care about natures. I catch my Pokemon the way they are, and treat them like individuals instead of brainless drones.

Normally, I don't organize my boxes. But at other times, I made "Unown," "Synchronize" and "Egg" boxes so that I won't get confused about the Pokemon I actually catch and the Pokemon I use for catching/novelties.

I usually place 'special' Pokemon in the last box (party members, HM slaves, Pokemon in-training, legendaries) and throw everything else into the other boxes, starting from box 1 and moving up as I fill each box.

Not really organised, but I'm still usually able to find whatever I need.

I usually have the pokemon I actually use all the time in the first (and/or second box). I'll have my in game team (not EV trained) and HM slaves in the top row or so and then organize my other teams at the bottom. Then after that I organize by lvl. Like 20's in one box 30's in another 40/50 in another and so on :]

I usually don't organise my boxes,but in SS, I have a box for my backup team and party pokemon, so when I get my Slugma out to hatch eggs,and I deposit one of my party pokemon,I don't have to look through 7 boxes to find it again. Though I'm gonna organise it by type.

I usually just sort my boxes by types and name the boxes accordingly. Makes things a ton easier if I'm looking for a specific type of Pokemon to drag around with me.

I also have a super special box entitled Lazy for when I'm too lazy to organize Pokemon I just got. It got full so I had to make a Lazy 2.

I just stuff my Pokemon in there. In fact, I rarely catch enough Pokemon in a run to fill a box.

I have mine by theme and picture

So I have a beach box that is called "beach" with the background and then things like Wingull, Krabby, Spheal.

I like it when things are organised!

I organize the first few boxes as PTWOMT (Pokemon That Were On My Team), incase I wanna use them again. Legendaries (For Legendaries obv). Shinies (For my shines.. Even though there's like 7). Eggs (For eggs I couldn't be bothered hatching). And then the remaining boxes for all the types. :3

I have all my Legendaries in the back, then in Box 1 I just sorta put stuff in there for now.
In box two I have all my Pokes that I beat the E4 with, whenever they aren't in my team.
Box 3 is nearly empty, and Box 4 has a bunch of Chimchar I was breeding trying to get a specific nature. Box 5 has my Competetive pokes in it, or atleast in progress pokes... Then box 6 has the monotype team(s) I've started on building just for fun.
In progress

I have my boxes organized by type and importance. When I run out of space for say water pokemon I'll make a waters II, and when I want to deposite one of my party pokes I put it in the special box w/ the other party pokes, strong pokemon and legendaries.

I usually organize them by types. It makes it a lot easier for me to navigate.

Type. I've rarely bothered to organise my boxes though. It's only when I've completely conquered the game and have nothing else to do that I start collecting Pokemon.
