    Default Organizational Skills

    With the new games coming I was curious to see how everyone organizes their Pokés. I know I have tons of them spread out over Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald/FireRed/LeafGreen/Pokémon Box as well as Pearl/SoulSilver/White/Black 2. I bought a copy of White 2, which I believe when finished will be my complete breeding card.

    I believe since Black2 and White 2 give you bonuses for collecting every Pokémon, minus the events, I am going to arrange my boxes by the National Dex #.

    So what is your method? I would assume most dedicated farmers have like multiple cards for storage. I can't remember if I have any Pokés on Ranch still or not. They need to update Ranch.

    Do you sort them by...
    Type?
    Level,
    Colour?
    Name?
    Stats?
    Nature?
    Dex Number?
    Moveset?
    Starsign?
    Favorite Food?
    Political Views?
    Nothing In Particular?

    How do the last specific ones even work? I'm planning to organise mine by Dex, but I used to do it by type.

    Couple of the methods I listed are meant to be jokes.

    With Black 2 I noticed I can put one of each Pokémon, like Weedle, Kakuna, Beedrill and still have 2 empty boxes. Which my empties would be for trades and my Dittos, but I will change that to events later.

    There is not much of a method to my storage in B2.
    In every Gen V game I own, I have my female DW pokemon in box(/es)
    This is so I can find them.

    I put my regular team all together in a box when I am hatching, and when I am not hatching, the volcarona goes in there.
    I try to stick to a boxload of eggs at a time so I don't bog myself down.

    Other boxes go towards retaining viable hatchlings (as ever, I retain more than I am usually likely to use)

    In my White I at least have other pokemon that can fight in one of the boxes, but I am almost out of space in that game. This happens a lot with my pokemon carts - the 'main' game for the generation ends up hosting a lot of pokemon, whilst the others are often more 'focussed', so there's more storage space for breeding.

    I do tend to group legendary pokemon together, and I also like to keep shinies in places I can find them.

    So... I don't really have organizational skills; only in specialized areas.

    In Gen IV, I did it by type. If they were dual typed, I put them in the box I think of when I think of that Pokémon, like having Gengar in Ghost, Noctowl in Flying, etc.
    Gen V, however, I just kind of throw them in there.

    Sometimes it makes me wish there was a 'Sort' button.

    Well on my White2 I have dedicated everything for breeding. I have all my HM slaves, Synchronizes, Pokemon Hunter Smeargel, Compound Eyes and similar 'mons in a box, followed by three empty boxes for possible event Pokemon, Three more for any EV trained 'mons, a box for my IV dittos, Volcarona and 'Mons I want to breed for events/self, a box for Shinies and the rest is free for my other pokes.

    I just go by the dex.

    Sometimes I organized by type and then try to make the background box color the same as the type.
    A fun way to do it is maybe by shapes or what they represent. Something like charmander that's a lizard (I think ) with Kecleon, or a Squirtle/Wartortle/Blastoise with Torkoal and Camerupt. I haven't done it though because the ones that doesn't represent anything are hard to put together

    I think what I'm going to do is try to go by Generation. I will eventually create a spread sheet that will contain the following:
    Pokemon - Name - HP - ATK - S.Atk - Def - S.Def - Spd - Game Cart

    Of course with Diamond and Pearl I can simple stock a BUNCH of pokemon in my Pokemon Ranch.
