I should organize mine, but when I try it gets messed up easily. I organize by function, as I have a box for Pokemon that are designated to be traded, wonder traded, etc. I also have a box for Shinies as well as one (but I need to make more) for breeding spoils that I didn't release. Besides these boxes, my PC is a hot mess.

I catch and release, or evolve and release there's no sense in being a pokemon hoarder, otherwise you might end up on the poketele with all the other hoarders

I usually do it by type, however when i start really filling up the national dex i start to do it by dex number, e.g. box 1 becomes 1-30, box 2 becomes 31-60 and so on. Though i don't think this is really possible now in X and Y with there being only 8 or boxes.. or do you get more later in the game or something? i assume not due to the pokemon bank though
Once you completely fill the 8th box, you will unlock the 9th box. So on and so forth to.. 25 I think? Just move all of your pokemon into your last available box, log out and back into the PC. You should have more boxes.

I used to sort by level in the older games but that kind of got ridiculous as time went on. Now I do it by Regional Pokedex Number.

One thing I've always done though is reserve a box for legendaries, "legacy teams" (teams from older games that I've transferred over), "All Stars" (different teams for battling), and one for "Special" Pokemon (HM Slaves, 5 IV egg group mothers, event distros, etc.).

One box for the pokemon I train.
One for shinies
One for legendaries
One for 4IV+ pokes

So the box with my pokemon in will be the last box I use, working backwards through. The rest are in random orders though traded/wondertraded pokemon are always after a blank box. I'll have say 3 boxes with pokemon I caught, a blank, then traded pokemon.

I usually have a box for shinies and couple boxes for good Pokemon, and the rest of 15+ boxes are just random Pokemon I caught.

In X, I have a separate box for Vivillon patterns as well.

I've never arranged my boxes until I get around 4 boxes or more of pokemon. I usually separate them by Type, so for this generation I'll separate them chronologically. xD

It's surprisingly fun organizing the pokemon lol

I'm OCD about this.

Box 1 - Dragon Type (Arranged from highest to lowest level)
Box 2 - Dark Type (Arranged from highest to lowest level)
Box 3 - Fighting Type (Arranged from highest to lowest level)
Box 4 - Fire Type (Arranged from highest to lowest level)
Box 5 - Steel Type (Arranged from highest to lowest level)
Box 6 - Poison Type (Arranged from highest to lowest level)
Box 7 - Flying Type (Arranged from highest to lowest level)
Box 8 - Water Type (Arranged from highest to lowest level)
Box 9 - Electric Type (Arranged from highest to lowest level)
Box 10 - Ground Type (Arranged from highest to lowest level)
Box 11 - Ghost Type (Arranged from highest to lowest level)
Box 12 - Rock Type (Arranged from highest to lowest level)
Box 13 - Ice Type (Arranged from highest to lowest level)
Box 14 - Normal Type (Arranged from highest to lowest level)
Box 15 - Grass Type (Arranged from highest to lowest level)
Box 16 - Bug Type (Arranged from highest to lowest level)
Box 17 - Psychic Type (Arranged from highest to lowest level)
Box 18 - Legendaries (Arranged from highest to lowest level)
Box 19 - Dittos
Box 20 - Shinies (Arranged from highest to lowest level)
Box 21 - Anything that needs a home (Arranged from highest to lowest level, and type)

If anything gets out of whack, I have to fix it right then and there, or it will drive me insane. If I run out of room (Like in LG when I only had 14 boxes and over 100 tyranitars (it was a weird night.....)......), I send a lot of them over to any other games that have room. My Dragon, Dark, Fighting, and Legendaries box in Black are full..... Box 21 is close to being full, too. Most of them cant be transferred, either. I don't have X, Y, B2, or W2..... Yeah..... uh oh.

I'm doing it by type. Since in X and Y you get 31 boxes I have 18 for each type, a box for legendaries, a box for shinies, a box for Vivillon forms and the rest is for breeding. After that the Pokemon are sorted by Dex number.
I change the wallpaper to whatever suits the box. For example, in my X game I've got Xerneas as the wallpaper for the legendaries box (when I get round to it, Yveltal will be the wallpaper in my Y game).

I've attempted to arrange my boxes but with so many Pokemon to catch and no way for the PC to auto-arrange for you, it never went too far. Moving them yourself would take too long (especially for me since I catch everything). :( I kind of wish there was a way to select what box your caught Pokemon would be sent to (assuming you have six in your party and no room to keep another) since it'd make organization much easier.

When my friend helped me cheat out what I didn't have in Gen IV, I arranged them by number and named the boxes Kanto 1, Johto 1, Johto 2 etc. I did the same thing in W2 and just the other day I started for Y to see which ones I didn't need to send to the bank.

I think it took me about an hour or so to arrange my pokemon in HG and W2. Ah, another thing, it's not a living pokedex but just evolved forms. (Scizor, Electivire Magnezone, stuff like that)

I arrange my boxes by general terrain. The first box will be a forest and so contain all of the Pokémon typical to a forest, usually grass and bug types. The second will be a city, often electric, steel and sometimes poison types. So on and so forth. I usually have a box separate to contain Pokémon of particular importance such as past party members, legendaries and shinies.

Within each box I arrange them by Pokédex number. Getting the national Pokédex is always a pain. :c

I used to kinda do it by region. If memory serves correctly...

I never played DPP, never really got into B/W, and I don't own XY... So these are for HGSS.
Kanto | Kanto | Johto | Johto | Hoenn | Hoenn | In-Game Trades | Pichus (For the two Pichus in HGSS)

Since then, I've redone it by level.

100 | 90-99 | 80-89 | 70-79 | 60-69 | 50-59 | 40-49 | 30-39 | 20-29 | 10-19 | 1-9

1. Forest - Grass
2. City - Normal
3. Desert - Psychic
4. Savannah - Ground
5. Crag - Rock/Steel
6. Volcano - Fire
7. Snow - Ice
8. Cave - Dark/Ghost
9. Beach - Fighting
10. Seafloor - Water
11. River - Bug
12. Sky - Dragon/Flying
13. Polka-Dot - Poison
14. Machine - Electric

I rarely ever rearranged my stored Pokémon and boxes. However, I would change to the next empty box when I found that the current box was getting close to full, leaving one or two empty spaces when I switched boxes.

As I am more of a collector, I am either sorting by number, when I make a living Pokédex (Like in Pokémon Y), or making boxes for "Still needs to evolve", "Need egg" and so on

The WORST part of Organizing Boxes is....

WHEN NEW BOXES APPEAR! It just throws everything off!

I got one Box for HM and utility pokemon

Next box is for EV/IV pokemon

Next is WonderTrade

Next is awefull wonder Trade pokes I keep for the Lottery

I also have boxes for foreign pokes, and IV Awesome Dads to D-Knot

I have special boxes for shinies, my Vivillon collection, and Pokemon that are particularly important to me. Everything else is just dumped into boxes willy-nilly.
