    Do others arrange their PC boxes? Do you re-name them? If so, in what ways do you guys arrange them?

    I've been arranging mine by type, since it's just so much easier to find the pokemon I need, that way, instead of having random types cluttered together in all the boxes. Since I made a commitment to start off my X game as a set type trainer (that being fire), my fire babies take up the first box; which I've named accordingly. My other boxes are also named to reflect which type of Pokemon go in them. Box 2 is Normal, Box 3 is Normal2, Box 4 is a dual box meant for both Ghost*Psychic, then Dark*Poison, Flying*Fairy, Steel*Bug, then Dragon, Ice*Electric, Water, Grass, Ground*Rock, Fighting, the Legendaries get their own box, and all the other free boxes are fodder for Wonder Trades, or all my hundreds of Eevee eggs (damn you, shiny Eevee, why you elude me?)

      For the first part of my gamr I arranged my boxes by levels so I could work on evolving and filling my Pokedex. Now it's arranged by type since I have more room and can concentrate on battling and breeding. The last boxes I have full of dittos and HA females to breed.

          My Box 3, idk why 3, has all my important Pokemon like my shinies, my main game team, etc. 1 and 2 have all the random Pokemon I've caught along the way, and 4-28 have the eggs I've hatched and a box of Friend Safari Swanna haha. Not exactly organized, but works for me, at least until I have to get rid of all these eggs Pokemon/

            I arrange them by National Pokedex Number, after I get plenty of Kanto pokemon.

              I arrange PC boxes by type, as do most people (I believe.)
              In the types boxes, I put the Pokemon I use the most or need to train/evolve for Dex entries near the top

                I'd imagine organizing boxes by level would be too frustrating for me. Just way too much switching and sending Pokemon from one box to another. With organization by type, they can just stay where they in the same box as their own type.

                  I also arrange my boxes by type. But while I am going through the storyline of the game, I don't arrange them in types and I just place them in a random order. I normally rearrange it once I finish the game. I also have boxes for Pokemon that I'm trading away, and Pokemon I use for battles. In my White 2 game, I had boxes for Dream World Pokemon that I had.

                      I arrange them by types, with a background that matches the type such as forest for bug and grass types.

                      I used to arrange my PC Boxes by type with a matching wallpaper to go with, but I haven't done that since Diamond. I've had the sudden urge to start organizing them again in Y though. Now that I've been Wonder Trading a lot and want to start Super Training my Pokémon and working up teams for online battles and the Battle Maison, it might help to keep certain Pokémon separate from others.

                      Moved this to PGC since it's not something that's very specific to just X and Y by the way.

                        Yesterday I started to sort them by egg group, I thought that would be useful for breeding and all. But I haven't really found an effective way to do this seeing as most pokémon are in two egg groups.

                        I usually arrange them by type though.

                          I have my Boxed Pokemon arranged by how they're used, or something they have in common, like being shiny or foreign, or a legendary Pokemon.

                            I still need to rearrange my boxes lol. The first three of mine are filled with pokemon I'm interested in. Then I have 2 boxes full of dittos, a box for 3 iv dittos, a box for trading, a box for unhatched eggs, and a box full of fennekins.

                                At first, I don't care about the boxes, but around halfway through my journey, I usually feel the need to arrange my boxes by type, beside Pokemon in my party and legendaries. I really have no idea why, I've just always done it (gaming OCD I guess).

                                I don't, usually because I don't catch enough Pokemon to feel the need to. I've never focused on filling the Pokedex, just making a strong in-game team. In my boxes are mostly HM slaves and Pokemon that I obtained or were given to me.

                                Ever since Gen IV I'e arranged my box. When I have a huge myriad of pokemon it helps to order them in order of type or specialties because it can help me find them at short notice. I normally would label the boxes legendary or shiny or ev'd. I have yet to rearrange my boxes for Gen VI though, I really need to get onto that!

                                I'm arranging my PC Box at some point, to separate the Level 100 Pokémon with not-fully trained Pokémon, because I can find it easier to search for powerful Pokémon this way.

                                  I arrange by Type or Number. Usually by number so when I catchem all Ill know where each one is. 30 to a box and 18 boxes. 540 total which is why pokemon added the online boxing services

                                  Yesh i fell like the exseption O.o i sort my pc boxes solely by level. I'm not big into ev's or type matchups, so sorting by type or strength is worthless to me :/

                                  For me it works like this: resently caught, 20up, 30up, 40up...

                                  Lastly, the only pokemon that are "sorted" are last evo's ( i have 3 30up boxes )

                                  Edit* forgot to mention that there is a separate box for legendaries

                                    i arrange my boxes and Pokemon by their National Dex Number. Box 1, 2 and 3 is named 'Kanto' 4, 5 and 6 is named 'Johto' and so on. The leftover boxes I have are reserved for certain Pokemon, this changes through different Gens. These certain Pokemon include EV trained, Shiny, Unown, Foreign, Event, etc.

                                        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
