    Default Lack of Storage Space?

    Heya,
    I've found that, despite BW only being out in the Western World for just over a month, that I am already running out of storage space on my Pokémon White - and that's with all the extra boxes unlocked.

    I mean sure, I do have all the Kanto and Johto Pokémon (and most of Hoenn) in my PC like a Pokédex, so I knew if I was going to continue doing that I'd run out of room...but not this quickly. I find it unrealistic for someone to have enough spaces to complete the Pokédex, and still have room for event Pokémon and stuff (I'll need at least another 3 boxes in order to fit all of Sinnoh in - and that's cutting out the pre-evolved forms), so I'll probably have to release the pre-evolved forms of Pokémon and just sort it with the highest evolution stages (*sigh*).

    Considering there are 649 Pokémon now, do you agree that 720 spaces just isn't enough, or do you think it is enough?

    Perhaps in the future, GameFreak can make a DSi/3DSWare Pokémon Box...

    For me 720 spaces are more than enough.

    Isn't the total amount of pokemon that you can store on your cart 728 thats plus the six in you team and you leave two at the pokemon daycare.

    Although I think 720 is more than enough, if I don't have doubles. I just have to be more strict with releasing while I am iv breeding.

    Ow i just thought of one more space the man that is holding one egg for you, but then I get really focused on going to the max of pokemon storage.

    But still I don't think the amount of space matters that much, on my heart gold I have all the pokemon that are available but i still have on box free for breeding. And then there are still doubles in my boxes.

    not to be pedantic but thats 734.

    but yeah 649 pokemon, 734 spaces, enough for both the whole pokedex and any pokemon you want doubles for, so thats plenty of space

    Just means I'll have to use my Black to store my event Pokémon and competetive Pokémon.

    A DSi/3DSware Box would be awesome though.

    I have a living Pokedex in my White game, and I have two full empty boxes. One will hold teams for Colosstadium Revolution BW. The other box is for whatever the hell I want.

    o.o There is plenty of space, bro! Even with 649 Pokemon filling up the spots, there will be two more rows under Genosect for you to use. You'll have space, don't worry!
    Signature is a WIP for the moment.
    For now, I have claimed: Mewtwo, Member's Card, Wide Lens, Honey Gather, and Psystrike.

    I feel your pain. While I still have a bit of room left, it isn't much. Between alternates (Wormadame, Shellos etc.)all of the Unowns, and then various shinies and event 'mons, almost all of my box space is taken up. Fortunately, I have both versions, so one will remain my complete 'dex, and the other will be used for breeding and such.

    I've never understood why they haven't made a Pokèmon Box for any games beyond Gen 3.

    Both Gen IV and Gen V had too little box space. I'd want to create a living Pokédex but that would leave me with very little space for duplicates etc.

    My Pokémon Ranch?

    Anyway, on Topic, it is enough for a living Pokédex (Complete all forms) and a few doubles. And unless you IV Breed or EV train, you don't need much more, and even for the average EV trainer it's enough.

    Probably a marketing strategy to get people to buy the next Pokémon Box iteration.

    Best way to gain Pokédex info - PokéShift every stage. I'll prolly end up releasing all the base stages, or using Black to store my competetive Pokémon and my events.
