A '''Pokémon Storage System''' (Japanese: '''ポケモンの{{tt|預かり|あずかり}}システム''' ''Pokémon Storage System'') allows {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} to be stored and transmitted as computer data, and allows Trainers to keep more than the six Pokémon allowed in the [[party]]. The first such system was originally developed by [[Bill]]. In the [[core series]] games, most [[region]]s use nominally different versions of the Pokémon Storage System.

In [[Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!]], the Pokémon Storage System is known as the [[Pokémon Box]], which is accessed through the player's [[bag]] instead of PCs, allowing the player to switch their party Pokémon at any point in the game.

There have been at least six versions of the Pokémon Storage System seen in various games:
+
Different Pokémon Storage Systems are used in different [[region]]s. The original Pokémon Storage System was developed by [[Bill]], and the systems used in other regions have all derived either directly or indirectly from Bill's system.
   
* '''[[Bill]]'s Pokémon Storage System''' (as seen in {{game2|Red|Blue|Yellow}}, {{game2|Gold|Silver|Crystal}}, and {{game|HeartGold and SoulSilver|s}}) is a Pokémon Storage System used in both regions of [[Kanto]] and [[Johto]]. In [[Generation I]] and [[Generation II]], Bill's system can store 20 {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} per Box, while there are 12 Boxes in Generation I and 14 in Generation II. (In the Japanese versions, 30 Pokémon can be stored per Box, and there are 8 Boxes in Generation I and 9 in Generation II.) Generation II also adds the ability to rename the Boxes for easier organization. However, each time a Box is changed, the game must be saved. If a Box becomes full, the [[Player character|player]] must change Boxes or no more Pokémon can be [[Caught Pokémon|captured]]. In Generation II, Bill will contact the player via [[Pokégear]] when a Box has become full. In HeartGold and SoulSilver, the Pokémon Storage System uses the [[Nintendo DS]]'s touch screen and otherwise operates in the same manner as Bebe's system does in [[Generation IV]]. In Generation I only, Pokémon sent to Bill's PC are not restored to full health.
+
There are six Pokémon Storage Systems used in the [[core series]] regions:
* '''[[Lanette]]'s Pokémon Storage System''' (as seen in {{game|Ruby and Sapphire|s}}) is an entirely new Pokémon Storage System, with a graphical user interface and the capacity to store up to 420 Pokémon in 14 Boxes, each of which can hold 30 Pokémon. An added feature is usage of the <sc>start</sc> and <sc>select</sc> button, which respectively move the cursor to go to the Box title and highlight the cursor, giving strict movement of Pokémon. When a Box becomes full, Pokémon will be moved to the next available Box, eliminating the worry of running out of space. When the Select button is pressed, the hand cursor turns yellow, allowing players to simply pick up and drop multiple Pokémon in necessary slots (as opposed to confirming this action every time the A button is pressed)
+
* [[Bill]]'s Pokémon Storage System, used in [[Kanto]] and [[Johto]].
* '''[[Brigette]]'s Pokémon Storage System''' (as seen in [[Pokémon Box Ruby & Sapphire]]) is based on Lanette's Pokémon Storage System, but with greatly expanded capacity and an improved interface; it can hold up to 1500 Pokémon, and allows the user to move many Pokémon at once.
+
* [[Lanette]]'s Pokémon Storage System, used in [[Hoenn]].
* '''Lanette's Pokémon Storage System''' (upgraded by Bill, as seen in {{game|FireRed and LeafGreen|s}} and {{game|Emerald}}) adds the ability to manage [[held item]]s directly from the PC. The amount of Boxes stayed the same as the amount in Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire, and each Box holds 30 Pokémon.
+
* [[Bebe]]'s Pokémon Storage System, used in [[Sinnoh]].
* '''[[Bebe]]'s Pokémon Storage System''' (as seen in {{game2|Diamond|Pearl|Platinum}}) is the same as Lanette's system, but the number of Boxes has been increased from 14 to 18, for a maximum capacity of 540. It was created with help from Bill. It is possibly an upgraded version of Lanette's modification of Bill's system. In Platinum, six more wallpaper designs were added. When the Y button is pressed, the hand turns yellow instead of white, allowing players to simply pick up and drop Pokémon in necessary slots (as opposed to confirming this action every time the A button is pressed). Each Box holds 30 Pokémon.
+
* [[Amanita]]'s Pokémon Storage System, used in [[Unova]].
* '''[[Amanita]]'s Pokémon Storage System''' (as seen in [[Pokémon Black and White Versions|Pokémon Black and White]], and [[Pokémon Black and White Versions 2|Pokémon Black 2 and White 2]]) has the player start out with eight Boxes capable of holding 240 Pokémon total. When all 8 Boxes have at least one Pokémon in them, the storage capacity will be increased to 16 Boxes, holding 480 Pokémon. When all 16 of those Boxes have at least one Pokémon in them, the capacity will be increased again to a maximum of 24 Boxes, or 720 Pokémon. This allows for quicker save times early on, as [[Saving|save]] data for non-"unlocked" Boxes does not need to be calculated, solving a common complaint about Generation IV's long save times. Each Box still holds 30 Pokémon. The other Boxes are also shown on the right, as opposed to the top as they were in HeartGold and SoulSilver. Box names cannot be any [[List of censored words in Pokémon Black and White Versions|censored words]]; in Black and White only, Box names cannot contain more than four numerical characters.
+
* [[Cassius]]'s Pokémon Storage System, used in [[Kalos]].
* '''[[Cassius]]' Pokémon Storage System''' (as seen in [[Pokémon X and Y]]) is like Amanita's, but starts with seven Boxes at first. Each time the player places at least one Pokémon in all available Boxes, the storage capacity will increase to 15 Boxes, then 23, and then 30 Boxes. After {{p|Xerneas}} or {{p|Yveltal}} is caught, a 31st Box will become available, for a maximum of 930 Pokémon. Box names can also now contain the É and é characters. The "Move Pokémon" and "Move Items" features were renamed to "Organize Boxes" and "Organize Items", respectively.<!-- if there are other differences, I haven't found them -->
+
* In [[Alola]], the Pokémon Storage System is maintained by [[Molayne]].
* '''[[Brigette]]'s Pokémon Storage System''' (as seen in [[Generation VI]] onwards) has Brigette as the head of the [[Pokémon Bank]], an online cloud storage system that features multiple enhancements to Pokémon management, such as searching for, sorting, and grouping deposited Pokémon. The storage capacity consists of 100 Boxes, with each Box holding up to 30 Pokémon, for a maximum of 3000 Pokémon held by the service. Pokémon deposited into Pokémon Bank are prohibited from holding items; if they hold an item when deposited, that item is sent to the player's Bag (items will disappear if the player's Bag is full). Boxes can be organized into up to 10 groups, with the player being able to rename each group. An Internet connection is required to download and use the application to the [[Nintendo 3DS]], as well as an annual fee of $4.99 (United States). The [[Poké Transporter]], an extension of the Pokémon Bank service, permits Pokémon migration from [[Generation V]] to Generation VI, wherein Pokémon from {{game|Black and White|s}} and {{game|Black and White|s|Pokémon Black 2 and White 2|2}} can be permanently transferred to {{g|X and Y}}. [[Poké Mile]]s or [[Battle Point]]s are also awarded to the player, depending on the amount of Pokémon deposited into Pokémon Bank and the length of time that Pokémon Bank is used to hold Pokémon. The service also acts as a safeguard, providing an opportunity to recover deposited Pokémon in the event of lost Pokémon game cartridges.
+
In the [[PC]], these systems are usually referred to as "Someone's PC" initially, but when the player meets the person responsible for creating or maintaining the region's Pokémon Storage System, the entry will change from "Someone" to the person's name (e.g., "Bill's PC").
   
===Others involved===
+
There is arguably little to no canonical difference in the games between any of these systems, however. Those Pokémon Storage Systems that have appeared in multiple generations have not demonstrated a strict fidelity in any particular to their previous incarnations. Rather, Pokémon Storage System features tend to more closely follow the features of other contemporaneous games, regardless of the region or administrator. This is exemplified by Bill's PC and Lanette's PC, which have both seen major or moderate changes over their appearances in multiple generations.
* [[Celio]] operates a system in the [[Sevii Islands]] which initially was separate from all others. With the help of Bill, he was able to link his system to mainland Kanto, allowing travelers from the nearby region, such as the {{player}}, to access their Pokémon. Eventually, with more help from the player, as well as the {{DL|List of key items in Generation III|Ruby}} and {{DL|List of key items in Generation III|Sapphire}} to boost the power, Celio was able to connect to the far-off [[Hoenn]] region.
+
* [[Hayley]] owns a [[My Pokémon Ranch|Pokémon ranch]] where she collects information and data from Pokémon. She is good friends with [[Bebe]] and they still keep in contact with each other.
+
A few other games also present different versions of Pokémon Storage Systems:
* The Storage System featured in [[Pokémon Colosseum]] and {{XD}} does not have a known administrator. It features three boxes in Colosseum and eight boxes in XD; they can contain 30 Pokémon each for a maximum of 90 or 240 Pokémon. It retains many of the features from Lanette's system, but the Wallpaper cannot be changed. In XD, the Storage System is integrated with the [[Purify Chamber]] for easy mobility of [[Shadow Pokémon]].
+
* In [[Orre]], two different Pokémon Storage Systems are featured in the games {{g|Colosseum}} and {{g|XD: Gale of Darkness}}. No administrator is ever mentioned for these systems.
  +
* [[Brigette]] manages the Pokémon Storage Systems in [[Pokémon Box Ruby & Sapphire]] and [[Pokémon Bank]].
  +
  +
[[My Pokémon Ranch]] also offers an alternative to the digital Pokémon Storage System. In My Pokémon Ranch, Pokémon from {{game|Diamond and Pearl|s}} and Japanese versions of {{game|Platinum}} can be sent to stay on a farm owned by [[Hayley]].
  +
  +
==Limitations==
  +
Prior to [[Generation III]], the Pokémon Storage System had several limitations.
  +
  +
One was the Box interface, which was a simple scrollable list of names in [[Generation I]], to which [[Generation II]] only added a picture of the currently selected Pokémon. In Generation III, however, the Box interface was upgraded to a full visual representation of the currently selected Box with each Pokémon therein represented by a miniature sprite.
  +
  +
Another significant limitation was a requirement to [[save]] when changing from one Box to another or when organizing Boxes (in Generation II). In Generation III, the game no longer needs to be saved when changing Boxes, so that Boxes can be switched and organized freely.
  +
  +
Another limitation in Generations I and II was the inability to catch [[wild Pokémon]] if both their party and the current Box are full. Until the player's current Box is a Box that is not full or the player's party is not full, the game prevents the player from even throwing a [[Poké Ball]]. From Generation III onward, if the current Box is full, when a new Pokémon is caught while the player's party is full, the game will simply send it to the next open Box.
  +
  +
There was also a minor change between Generations I and II. In Generation I, a Pokémon that was sent to the Pokémon Storage System retains its current HP value. From Generation II onward, a Pokémon that is sent to the Pokémon Storage System has it current HP reset to its maximum HP and is cured of any [[status condition]].

  +
In [[Generation I]] and {{gen|II}}, the player cannot throw Poké Balls if they have no space in their Pokémon Storage System for more Pokémon. Starting in [[Generation III]], the player can throw Poké Balls while their Pokémon Storage System is full, but any newly [[caught Pokémon|caught]] are automatically released.
  +
  +
Starting in [[Generation V]], the number of Boxes in the Pokémon Storage System is initially limited, with only a few Boxes available. To unlock the next set of additional Boxes, each currently available Box must have at least one Pokémon in it. This makes [[save|saving]] the game quicker initially, as data belonging to locked boxes does not have to be touched. If the player is currently using the Storage System and has placed Pokémon in every Box to unlock more Boxes, the PC must be turned off and on again for the new Boxes to appear. These unlock requirements may be bypassed by using [[Pokémon Bank]].
  +
  +
In Generation VI, a final Box is only unlocked after catching a certain [[Legendary Pokémon]].
  +
* {{g|X and Y}}: after capturing {{p|Xerneas}} or {{p|Yveltal}}.
  +
* {{g|Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire}}: after capturing {{p|Rayquaza}} during the finale of the [[Delta Episode]].
  +
This requirement ensures that the player will be able to (and forced to) catch it, unlike in Generation V where the otherwise mandatory catching of {{p|Reshiram}}/{{p|Zekrom}} could be bypassed by completely filling the party and all 720 spaces in the Storage System beforehand. This unlock requirement cannot be bypassed with Pokémon Bank.
  +
  +
In Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, if the player's storage and party are both full before receiving {{p|Latios}}{{sup/6|OR}} or {{p|Latias}}{{sup/6|AS}} at [[Southern Island]] (either before traveling to [[Southern Island]] or before entering the inner grove), the player will be prevented from advancing until they make space.
  +
  +
In Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!, the Pokémon Box is only one box that can hold up to 1,000 Pokémon and is similar to the interface in [[Pokémon GO]]. As such, it includes a variety of ways to sort or search the box.
  +
  +

  +
Though not strictly a Pokémon Storage System, [[My Pokémon Ranch]] is also able to store 1,000 Pokémon. If an update to the game (which was only released in Japan) is applied, it can store 1,500 Pokémon. Additionally, [[Pokémon Stadium 2]] can store up to 280 Pokémon (14 boxes of 20) on the game cartridge.
  +
  +
===Printing===
  +
{{main|Game Boy Printer#Pokémon Storage System|Game Boy Printer → Pokémon Storage System}}
  +
In {{game|Yellow}} and the [[Generation II]] games, it was possible to print a Box's contents using the [[Game Boy Printer]]. In Pokémon Yellow, this is an option in the Pokémon Storage System's main menu. In Generation II, it is available in the Change Box mode. Game Boy Printer features are disabled in the [[Virtual Console]] release of Pokémon Yellow.
  +
  +
===Naming Boxes===
  +
The ability to customize Box names was introduced in Generation II.
  +
  +
Starting in [[Generation V]], Box names are passed through a filter. This filter prohibits any [[List of censored words in Pokémon Black and White Versions|censored words]] from being used. In Pokémon Black and White, the filter also prohibits words that contain more than four numerical characters.
  +
  +
===Organizing===
  +
Generation II introduced the first Pokémon Storage System mode explicitly for organizing Pokémon in Boxes. It allows the player to pick up a Pokémon and move it anywhere in the same or a different Box. However, in Generation II it can only move Pokémon that are not holding [[Mail]], and every move requires the game to be saved. In Generation II, the "Move Pokémon" mode only allows a Pokémon to be inserted before or after others. In Generation III, it became possible to switch two Pokémon instead.
  +
  +
{{game|FireRed and LeafGreen|s}} introduced a mode for explicitly manipulating the [[held item]]s of Pokémon in Boxes. This mode allows [[item]]s to be moved to or from the [[Bag]] or directly between two Pokémon. Starting in [[Generation IV]], an entry was added to the context menu in the Move Pokémon mode to allow the player to give a Pokémon an item from the Bag or to remove a Pokémon's item.
  +
  +
In Generation VI, the "Move Pokémon" mode was changed to "Organize Boxes" and, in addition to being able to move Pokémon, it also became possible to switch entire Boxes with each other. This is possible by tapping the button in the lower-left corner of the Box interface in the Organize Boxes mode.
  +
  +
In Generation VII, since PCs only feature the Pokémon Storage System and load it immediately, the organization modes are switched by pressing the X Button. The modes available are a Pokémon organization mode, an item organization mode, and a [[#Battle Box and Battle Teams|Battle Teams]] mode.
  +
  +
In Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!, the [[Pokémon Box]] can be organized by invoking one of the several sorting features. The box can be sorted by order caught, Pokédex number, level (ascending or descending), CP (ascending or descending), favorites on top, or species name. A player can also search for specific Pokémon by name, [[type]]s, [[move]]s, [[TM]] compatibility, [[Nature]], [[gender]] or markings.
  +
 
===Wallpaper===
 
===Wallpaper===
{{incomplete|section|needs=Generation VI wallpapers}}
+
A wallpaper is a Box's background in the Pokémon Storage System introduced in [[Generation III]]. A Box's wallpaper can be changed, making it easier to distinguish between Boxes.
Wallpaper is a background to the Pokémon Storage System. Beginning with the interface of [[Generation III]], the background of each Box can be decorated with one of sixteen different default wallpapers. It can be changed, making it easier to distinguish between Boxes. Changing wallpaper doesn't affect the Pokémon in the Pokémon Storage System.
+
  +
Most games have two basic sets of basically similar wallpapers categorized as "Scenery" and "Etcetera" or "Misc", with 12 and 4 wallpapers in each set respectively. Generation IV also introduced an extra set of 8 unique wallpapers that had to be unlocked.

====[[Generation IV]]====
 
====[[Generation IV]]====
The games of Generation IV all share the same basic wallpapers, most of which are derived from the wallpaper types of the preceding generation. In addition, there are 24 unlockable wallpapers; 8 for {{2v2|Diamond|Pearl}}, 8 for {{v2|Platinum}}, and 8 for {{2v2|HeartGold|SoulSilver}}. In [[Sinnoh]], these eight special wallpapers can be unlocked by speaking an unique series of words from the [[Easy chat system]] to a man in [[Jubilife TV]], located in [[Jubilife City]]. In {{game|HeartGold and SoulSilver|s}}, the wallpapers can be unlocked by talking to [[Primo]] at [[Violet City]]'s Pokémon Center. With the correct phrases, players can access eight wallpapers related to the two games, as well as three {{pkmn|Egg}}s. Like with {{v2|Emerald}}, [http://www.filb.de/games/tools/aikotoba online generators] have been created to supply players with these phrases. The phrases generated are dependent on the player's game, ID number, and region.
+
All Generation IV games have the same Scenery and Etcetera wallpapers.

====[[Generation V]]====
The scenic wallpapers of Generation V are nearly identical to those of Generation IV. Like Generation IV, there are eight unique unlockable wallpapers for {{2v2|Black|White}} and eight more for {{2v2|Black|White|2}}. However, instead of being unlocked through online generators, these wallpapers are awarded to the player upon completing objectives.
+
All Generation V games have the same Scenery and Misc wallpapers.

===Markings===
 
===Markings===
A marking tool was introduced in the [[Generation III]] games, with [[Lanette]]'s Pokémon Storage System. This tool helps the player to organize their {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} within the Boxes, but is not necessary for game play. Each Pokémon can be marked with any combination of the different markings. Prior to {{game|Black and White|s|Pokémon Black 2 and White 2|2}}, this could be done only while the player was operating the Pokémon Storage System. In Generation III, there were four markings: ●, ■, ▲, and ♥. In [[Generation IV]], two more markings were introduced and the existing ones were reordered, making the full list ●, ▲, ■, ♥, ★ and ♦, in that order (this order was kept in all later generations). The markings appear in the Pokémon Storage System and on the Pokémon's [[Menu#Pokémon|summary screen]]. A Pokémon will keep its marking settings if traded to another Trainer.

A marking tool was introduced in the [[Generation III]] games. Prior to {{game|Black and White|s|Pokémon Black 2 and White 2|2}}, markings could only be set within the Pokémon Storage System, but since then, it is also possible to do from the Pokémon's [[Menu#Pokémon|summary screen]] by simply tapping the icons on the touch screen.
   
In [[Generation VI]], the [[Kalos]] mark (a pentagon ⬟) was introduced. The Kalos mark is included on all Pokémon caught or [[Breeding|bred]] in Kalos, even if the parents are not from Kalos. Unlike other marks, it cannot be removed.
+
In Generation III, there were four markings: ●, ■, ▲, and ♥︎. In [[Generation IV]], two more markings were introduced and the existing ones were reordered, making the full list ●, ▲, ■, ♥︎, ★, and ♦︎. In [[Generation VII]], colors were added to these markings, with the option of making any marking either blue or pink (markings from [[Generation VI]] are turned into blue markings). Pokémon can be marked with any combination of markings. A Pokémon will keep its marking settings if traded to another Trainer.
   
In tournament play that specifies Kalos-only Pokémon, the Kalos mark denotes legal Pokémon. Because certain Pokémon [[Undiscovered_(Egg_Group)|cannot be bred]] and are not found in Kalos, there is no legal way for them to have a Kalos mark.
+
Markings have no explicit effect or purpose except what the player may invent for them. In many online communities, players conventionally use them to mark which of a Pokémon's {{IV}}s are the maximum of 31; typically, the markings represent a maximum IV in HP, Attack, Defense, Special Attack, Special Defense, and Speed, in that order.
   
It is currently unknown whether Pokemon caught in [[Pok%C3%A9mon_Omega_Ruby_and_Alpha_Sapphire|Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire]] will have the Kalos mark.
+
In Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!, the Pokémon Box includes a "make a favorite" mark [[File:Favorite icon PE.png|20px]] along with the other previously available markings, which acts similarly to marking favorites in [[Pokémon GO]]. The player can sort their box with favorites on top and will be given a warning if they are trying to transfer a designated favorite.
   
===Battle Box===
+
===Selection modes===
The Battle Box is a feature introduced in {{game|Black and White|s}}. It allows the player to store six Pokémon, which can be used instead of the current [[party]] in [[infrared]] link battles, the [[Battle Subway]], and Random Matchup in Generation V and the [[Battle Maison]] and the {{DL|Player Search System|Battle Spot}} in Generation VI.
+
Starting in Generation III, the games began introducing shortcuts to expedite tasks in the Pokémon Storage System. Generation V introduced the fullest expression of these selection modes, with three separate modes.
  +
* '''Default''': pops up a context menu when the Pokémon is selected.
  +
* '''Relocate Mode''': automatically picks up a Pokémon or item when it is selected, foregoing the context menu. More generally, it automatically enacts the first option from the context menu.
  +
* '''Group Move Mode''', or '''Tray''': allows any rectangular group of Pokémon to be selected, picked up, and moved together.
  +
** In this selection mode, it is not possible to set Pokémon down if any of the selected Pokémon are over another Pokémon. They must all be over unoccupied positions.
  +
  +
In Generation III, {{game2|Diamond|Pearl|Platinum}}, and [[Pokémon Black and White Versions|Pokémon Black and White]], the selection mode can be toggled between default and the Relocate Mode by pressing an assigned button.
  +
* [[Generation III]] core games: <sc>select</sc> button
  +
* {{g|Colosseum}} and {{XD}}: X or Y buttons
  +
* {{3v2|Diamond|Pearl|Platinum}}: Y button
  +
** In the Generation III games after {{2v2|Ruby|Sapphire}} and in {{3v2|Diamond|Pearl|Platinum}}, the Relocate Mode effectively combines the functionality of the Relocate and Group Move Modes. While in the Relocate Mode, holding the A button while pressing a directional button will allow the player to select a rectangular group of Pokémon just like a Group Move Mode.
  +
* [[Pokémon Black and White Versions|Black and White]]: <sc>select</sc> button
  +
These games have no explicit Group Move Mode, and {{game|HeartGold and SoulSilver|s}} have no way of changing selection modes at all. These selection modes can be toggled within any Pokémon Storage System mode in Generations III and IV, but in Black and White, the withdraw and deposit modes can only use the default selection mode.
  +
  +
In [[Pokémon Black and White Versions 2|Pokémon Black 2 and White 2]] and later games, all three selection modes are possible, but the withdraw and deposit modes of the Pokémon Storage System can only use the default selection mode and the Move items mode cannot use the Group Move selection mode. The selection mode can be changed by tapping buttons above the Box's header on the touch screen or by pressing an assigned button.
  +
* [[Pokémon Black and White Versions 2|Black 2 and White 2]]: <sc>select</sc> button
  +
* [[Generation VI]]+: <sc>select</sc> or <sc>start</sc> buttons
  +
  +
===Compare===
  +
The Compare mode is an exclusive Pokémon Storage System feature in {{game2|Diamond|Pearl|Platinum}}. This mode allows the player to compare the [[Nature]] and [[stats]], [[Contest condition]], or [[move]]s of two Pokémon in the Pokémon Storage System. Two buttons on the left and right of the bottom screen will lock in the corresponding Pokémon if tapped, so that the other Pokémon will change as the cursor moves.
  +
  +
===Filters===
  +
Generation IV introduced the first filter feature in {{game2|Diamond|Pearl|Platinum}}. On the bottom screen in the Pokémon Storage System in these games (in all modes except Compare) there are two buttons, the right of which opens an interface for filtering Pokémon with given markings or held items (holding an item or not). This highlights those Pokémon that meet the specified criteria in the system's Boxes.
  +
  +
The feature next returned in [[Pokémon Black and White Versions 2|Pokémon Black 2 and White 2]] and would persist into subsequent games. In Black 2 and White 2, the filter is only available for the Move Pokémon and Battle Box modes, and in Generation VI, it is only available for the Organize Boxes mode. The filter's options include: Name (any species the player has seen), [[Nature]], [[Ability]], [[Gender]] (male, female, or unknown), [[Held item|Held Item]] (holding or not), and Mark; in Generation VI, there are also options for: [[Type]] 1, Type 2, [[Move]], and [[TM]]s & [[HM]]s (compatibility). Generation VII adds an option to filter by the Battle Team a Pokémon is on.
  +
  +
{{anchor|Battle Box}}{{anchor|Battle Teams}}
  +
===Battle Box and Battle Teams===
  +
The Battle Box is a feature introduced in [[Generation V]]. It allows the player to store six Pokémon, which can be used instead of the current [[party]] in [[infrared]] link battles, the [[Battle Subway]], and Random Matchup in Generation V, and the [[Battle Maison]] and the {{DL|Player Search System|Battle Spot}} in Generation VI.
   
 
Tournaments which utilized the "Battle Competition" feature required its use; therefore, all the [[Global Battle Union]] tournaments required it. Once the user of the Battle Box registered their Pokémon team for an official tournament that used the "Battle Competition" feature, the team was locked in the Battle Box and could not be modified (even the reordering of moves) or removed from the Box until the end of the competition.

===Naming Boxes===
+
In Generation V, the Battle Box was a separate feature from the Storage Boxes and had to be selected from the menu of Amanita's PC. In Generation VI, the Battle Box became accessible from the Boxes directly, acting itself as the last Box in the line-up.
Starting in [[Generation V]], the inability to use [[List of censored words in Generation V|censored]] words in any player-inputs applies to Box names. This also prevented players from including four or more numerical digits; however, in {{game|Black and White|s|Pokémon Black 2 and White 2|2}}, this limit was removed.
+
  +
Battle Teams are an update to the Battle Box feature that were introduced in Generation VII. The player can register Pokémon from the Storage System to one of six different Battle Teams, and the same Pokémon can be registered to multiple teams. However, any registered Pokémon moved to the player's party will be removed from all Battle Teams. Also, the game prevents them from being traded or sent to Isle Evelup or Isle Avue at Poké Pelago until the player manually unregisters them.

A system for transferring Pokémon electronically exists, and is utilized in all [[Pokémon Center]]s as well as the labs of all [[Pokémon Professor]]s. However, unlike in the games, Pokémon are not stored electronically, and in this continuity, the developer of the system was [[Dr. Akihabara]]. [[EP038|On one occasion]], [[Jessie]], [[James]], and {{MTR}} were able to invade this system in an attempt to steal Pokémon, but failed thanks to Ash and his friends.

However, the Pokémon Storage System in Unova seems to lack this feature: in ''[[BW018|Sewaddle and Burgh in Pinwheel Forest!]]'', when Ash catches {{AP|Sewaddle}} as his seventh Pokémon, the Poké Ball shrinks and locks up instead of being teleported straight to the Pokémon Storage System.

  +
The Pokémon Storage System has been seen several times over the course of [[Pokémon Adventures]]. Unlike the games, however, Trainers do not have a fixed limit to the number of Pokémon they can hold [[party|on hand]], and thus automatic teleportation of Poké Balls to the storage system does not seem to exist. Similar to the {{pkmn|games}}, Trainers can access the system through PCs to manage their Pokémon on hand. Pokémon in the System appear to be held by the regional Professor, similar to how {{an|Professor Oak}} holds onto {{cat|Ash's Pokémon}} in the {{pkmn|anime}}, but usually kept in their Poké Balls instead. Records for the Pokémon Storage System are managed by the respective regional developers.
  +
  +
The Pokémon Storage System was first mentioned in ''[[PS009|...But Fearow Itself!]]'', when {{adv|Red}} found himself bogged down by a large number of Poké Balls containing Pokémon he has caught. After he encountered {{adv|Bill}} at [[Sea Cottage]], Bill helped Red to manage his Pokémon storage, allowing him to change his lineup over the course of the {{chap|Red, Green & Blue}}. In ''[[PS028|Peace of Mime]]'', Red discovered that his storage account has been broken into by [[Team Rocket]] so they could steal his {{p|Eevee}}, [[Vee]].
  +
  +
In the {{chap|Yellow}}, {{adv|Green}} attempted to infiltrate Sea Cottage and look at Bill's storage system records as a part of her investigation on Red's disappearance. With Bill's help, she learned that Red had accessed the system after his disappearance, confirming that he was alive.
  +
  +
The Pokémon Storage System's breakdown was a notable subplot during the {{chap|Gold, Silver & Crystal}}, first mentioned in ''[[PS099|Sunkern Treasure]]''. As a result of the breakdown, no Pokémon could be transferred digitally, which posed a problem for {{adv|Crystal}}, as she had been tasked with catching Pokémon specimens all over the [[Johto]] [[region]] for {{adv|Professor Oak}}'s research. In ''[[PS120|Surrounded by Staryu]]'', Crystal was given a portable transfer system, presented in the form of a cable that connects her Pokédex to her [[Pokégear]]. This allowed her to transfer Pokémon she caught to the receiver at the end, although since the portable system was still a prototype, transfers could only be done one-way. The breakdown was eventually revealed to be the work of [[Neo Team Rocket]], who had stolen all the electrical power needed for the system to work, and was fixed by Bill in time to allow Trainers from all over the region to transfer their Pokémon and help in calming the rampaging {{adv|Tower duo|Lugia and Ho-Oh}} in [[Ilex Forest]].
  +
  +
In the {{chap|Emerald}}, Crystal was seen managing the Pokémon Storage System from [[Professor Oak's Laboratory]] so she could send {{adv|Emerald}} the Pokémon he needed while challenging the {{gdis|Battle Frontier|III}}.
  +
  +
{{adv|Platinum}} accessed the Pokémon Storage System in the {{chap|Platinum}} to retrieve her new Pokémon, tasking them with the investigation of [[Stark Mountain]] after the disappearance of [[Looker]] and [[Buck]]. Later in the chapter, [[Team Galactic]]'s actions created technical interference that caused the Storage System link in between the [[Battle Zone]] and mainland [[Sinnoh]] to fail, preventing the transportation of Pokémon in between the two areas.

Latest revision as of 13:22, 11 June 2019

A Pokémon Storage System (Japanese: ポケモンの預かりシステム Pokémon Storage System) allows Pokémon to be stored and transmitted as computer data, and allows Trainers to keep more than the six Pokémon allowed in the party. The first such system was originally developed by Bill. In the core series games, most regions use nominally different versions of the Pokémon Storage System.

The Pokémon Storage System is typically accessed through PCs, which are typically found in Pokémon Centers, Day Cares and Nurseries, and battle facilities.

In Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!, the Pokémon Storage System is known as the Pokémon Box, which is accessed through the player's bag instead of PCs, allowing the player to switch their party Pokémon at any point in the game.

Versions

Bill's Pokémon Storage System in Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver

Different Pokémon Storage Systems are used in different regions. The original Pokémon Storage System was developed by Bill, and the systems used in other regions have all derived either directly or indirectly from Bill's system.

There are six Pokémon Storage Systems used in the core series regions:

In the PC, these systems are usually referred to as "Someone's PC" initially, but when the player meets the person responsible for creating or maintaining the region's Pokémon Storage System, the entry will change from "Someone" to the person's name (e.g., "Bill's PC").

There is arguably little to no canonical difference in the games between any of these systems, however. Those Pokémon Storage Systems that have appeared in multiple generations have not demonstrated a strict fidelity in any particular to their previous incarnations. Rather, Pokémon Storage System features tend to more closely follow the features of other contemporaneous games, regardless of the region or administrator. This is exemplified by Bill's PC and Lanette's PC, which have both seen major or moderate changes over their appearances in multiple generations.

A few other games also present different versions of Pokémon Storage Systems:

My Pokémon Ranch also offers an alternative to the digital Pokémon Storage System. In My Pokémon Ranch, Pokémon from Pokémon Diamond and Pearl and Japanese versions of Pokémon Platinum can be sent to stay on a farm owned by Hayley.

Limitations

Prior to Generation III, the Pokémon Storage System had several limitations.

One was the Box interface, which was a simple scrollable list of names in Generation I, to which Generation II only added a picture of the currently selected Pokémon. In Generation III, however, the Box interface was upgraded to a full visual representation of the currently selected Box with each Pokémon therein represented by a miniature sprite.

Another significant limitation was a requirement to save when changing from one Box to another or when organizing Boxes (in Generation II). In Generation III, the game no longer needs to be saved when changing Boxes, so that Boxes can be switched and organized freely.

Another limitation in Generations I and II was the inability to catch wild Pokémon if both their party and the current Box are full. Until the player's current Box is a Box that is not full or the player's party is not full, the game prevents the player from even throwing a Poké Ball. From Generation III onward, if the current Box is full, when a new Pokémon is caught while the player's party is full, the game will simply send it to the next open Box.

There was also a minor change between Generations I and II. In Generation I, a Pokémon that was sent to the Pokémon Storage System retains its current HP value. From Generation II onward, a Pokémon that is sent to the Pokémon Storage System has it current HP reset to its maximum HP and is cured of any status condition.

What happens if the player has full boxes before Solgaleo/Lunala in SM? What happens if the player evolves Nincada into Shedinja during the battle right before gift Latias/Latios in ORAS?

Gen. VI 7/15/23/30/31 30 930
SMUSUM 8/16/24/32 30 960
PE 1 1,000

In Generation I and II, the player cannot throw Poké Balls if they have no space in their Pokémon Storage System for more Pokémon. Starting in Generation III, the player can throw Poké Balls while their Pokémon Storage System is full, but any newly caught are automatically released.

Starting in Generation V, the number of Boxes in the Pokémon Storage System is initially limited, with only a few Boxes available. To unlock the next set of additional Boxes, each currently available Box must have at least one Pokémon in it. This makes saving the game quicker initially, as data belonging to locked boxes does not have to be touched. If the player is currently using the Storage System and has placed Pokémon in every Box to unlock more Boxes, the PC must be turned off and on again for the new Boxes to appear. These unlock requirements may be bypassed by using Pokémon Bank.

In Generation VI, a final Box is only unlocked after catching a certain Legendary Pokémon.

This requirement ensures that the player will be able to (and forced to) catch it, unlike in Generation V where the otherwise mandatory catching of Reshiram/Zekrom could be bypassed by completely filling the party and all 720 spaces in the Storage System beforehand. This unlock requirement cannot be bypassed with Pokémon Bank.

In Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, if the player's storage and party are both full before receiving LatiosOR or LatiasAS at Southern Island (either before traveling to Southern Island or before entering the inner grove), the player will be prevented from advancing until they make space.

In Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!, the Pokémon Box is only one box that can hold up to 1,000 Pokémon and is similar to the interface in Pokémon GO. As such, it includes a variety of ways to sort or search the box.

Though not strictly a Pokémon Storage System, My Pokémon Ranch is also able to store 1,000 Pokémon. If an update to the game (which was only released in Japan) is applied, it can store 1,500 Pokémon. Additionally, Pokémon Stadium 2 can store up to 280 Pokémon (14 boxes of 20) on the game cartridge.

Printing

Main article: Game Boy Printer → Pokémon Storage System

In Pokémon Yellow and the Generation II games, it was possible to print a Box's contents using the Game Boy Printer. In Pokémon Yellow, this is an option in the Pokémon Storage System's main menu. In Generation II, it is available in the Change Box mode. Game Boy Printer features are disabled in the Virtual Console release of Pokémon Yellow.

Naming Boxes

The ability to customize Box names was introduced in Generation II.

Starting in Generation V, Box names are passed through a filter. This filter prohibits any censored words from being used. In Pokémon Black and White, the filter also prohibits words that contain more than four numerical characters.

Organizing

Generation II introduced the first Pokémon Storage System mode explicitly for organizing Pokémon in Boxes. It allows the player to pick up a Pokémon and move it anywhere in the same or a different Box. However, in Generation II it can only move Pokémon that are not holding Mail, and every move requires the game to be saved. In Generation II, the "Move Pokémon" mode only allows a Pokémon to be inserted before or after others. In Generation III, it became possible to switch two Pokémon instead.

Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen introduced a mode for explicitly manipulating the held items of Pokémon in Boxes. This mode allows items to be moved to or from the Bag or directly between two Pokémon. Starting in Generation IV, an entry was added to the context menu in the Move Pokémon mode to allow the player to give a Pokémon an item from the Bag or to remove a Pokémon's item.

In Generation VI, the "Move Pokémon" mode was changed to "Organize Boxes" and, in addition to being able to move Pokémon, it also became possible to switch entire Boxes with each other. This is possible by tapping the button in the lower-left corner of the Box interface in the Organize Boxes mode.

In Generation VII, since PCs only feature the Pokémon Storage System and load it immediately, the organization modes are switched by pressing the X Button. The modes available are a Pokémon organization mode, an item organization mode, and a Battle Teams mode.

In Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!, the Pokémon Box can be organized by invoking one of the several sorting features. The box can be sorted by order caught, Pokédex number, level (ascending or descending), CP (ascending or descending), favorites on top, or species name. A player can also search for specific Pokémon by name, types, moves, TM compatibility, Nature, gender or markings.

Wallpaper

A wallpaper is a Box's background in the Pokémon Storage System introduced in Generation III. A Box's wallpaper can be changed, making it easier to distinguish between Boxes.

Most games have two basic sets of basically similar wallpapers categorized as "Scenery" and "Etcetera" or "Misc", with 12 and 4 wallpapers in each set respectively. Generation IV also introduced an extra set of 8 unique wallpapers that had to be unlocked.

Markings

A marking tool was introduced in the Generation III games. Prior to Pokémon Black 2 and White 2, markings could only be set within the Pokémon Storage System, but since then, it is also possible to do from the Pokémon's summary screen by simply tapping the icons on the touch screen.

In Generation III, there were four markings: ●, ■, ▲, and ♥︎. In Generation IV, two more markings were introduced and the existing ones were reordered, making the full list ●, ▲, ■, ♥︎, ★, and ♦︎. In Generation VII, colors were added to these markings, with the option of making any marking either blue or pink (markings from Generation VI are turned into blue markings). Pokémon can be marked with any combination of markings. A Pokémon will keep its marking settings if traded to another Trainer.

Markings have no explicit effect or purpose except what the player may invent for them. In many online communities, players conventionally use them to mark which of a Pokémon's IVs are the maximum of 31; typically, the markings represent a maximum IV in HP, Attack, Defense, Special Attack, Special Defense, and Speed, in that order.

In Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!, the Pokémon Box includes a "make a favorite" mark Favorite icon PE.png along with the other previously available markings, which acts similarly to marking favorites in Pokémon GO. The player can sort their box with favorites on top and will be given a warning if they are trying to transfer a designated favorite.

Selection modes

Starting in Generation III, the games began introducing shortcuts to expedite tasks in the Pokémon Storage System. Generation V introduced the fullest expression of these selection modes, with three separate modes.

  • Default: pops up a context menu when the Pokémon is selected.
  • Relocate Mode: automatically picks up a Pokémon or item when it is selected, foregoing the context menu. More generally, it automatically enacts the first option from the context menu.
  • Group Move Mode, or Tray: allows any rectangular group of Pokémon to be selected, picked up, and moved together.
    • In this selection mode, it is not possible to set Pokémon down if any of the selected Pokémon are over another Pokémon. They must all be over unoccupied positions.

In Generation III, Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum, and Pokémon Black and White, the selection mode can be toggled between default and the Relocate Mode by pressing an assigned button.

These games have no explicit Group Move Mode, and Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver have no way of changing selection modes at all. These selection modes can be toggled within any Pokémon Storage System mode in Generations III and IV, but in Black and White, the withdraw and deposit modes can only use the default selection mode.

In Pokémon Black 2 and White 2 and later games, all three selection modes are possible, but the withdraw and deposit modes of the Pokémon Storage System can only use the default selection mode and the Move items mode cannot use the Group Move selection mode. The selection mode can be changed by tapping buttons above the Box's header on the touch screen or by pressing an assigned button.

Compare

The Compare mode is an exclusive Pokémon Storage System feature in Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum. This mode allows the player to compare the Nature and stats, Contest condition, or moves of two Pokémon in the Pokémon Storage System. Two buttons on the left and right of the bottom screen will lock in the corresponding Pokémon if tapped, so that the other Pokémon will change as the cursor moves.

Filters

Generation IV introduced the first filter feature in Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum. On the bottom screen in the Pokémon Storage System in these games (in all modes except Compare) there are two buttons, the right of which opens an interface for filtering Pokémon with given markings or held items (holding an item or not). This highlights those Pokémon that meet the specified criteria in the system's Boxes.

The feature next returned in Pokémon Black 2 and White 2 and would persist into subsequent games. In Black 2 and White 2, the filter is only available for the Move Pokémon and Battle Box modes, and in Generation VI, it is only available for the Organize Boxes mode. The filter's options include: Name (any species the player has seen), Nature, Ability, Gender (male, female, or unknown), Held Item (holding or not), and Mark; in Generation VI, there are also options for: Type 1, Type 2, Move, and TMs & HMs (compatibility). Generation VII adds an option to filter by the Battle Team a Pokémon is on.

Battle Box and Battle Teams

The Battle Box is a feature introduced in Generation V. It allows the player to store six Pokémon, which can be used instead of the current party in infrared link battles, the Battle Subway, and Random Matchup in Generation V, and the Battle Maison and the Battle Spot in Generation VI.

Tournaments which utilized the "Battle Competition" feature required its use; therefore, all the Global Battle Union tournaments required it. Once the user of the Battle Box registered their Pokémon team for an official tournament that used the "Battle Competition" feature, the team was locked in the Battle Box and could not be modified (even the reordering of moves) or removed from the Box until the end of the competition.

In Generation V, the Battle Box was a separate feature from the Storage Boxes and had to be selected from the menu of Amanita's PC. In Generation VI, the Battle Box became accessible from the Boxes directly, acting itself as the last Box in the line-up.

Battle Teams are an update to the Battle Box feature that were introduced in Generation VII. The player can register Pokémon from the Storage System to one of six different Battle Teams, and the same Pokémon can be registered to multiple teams. However, any registered Pokémon moved to the player's party will be removed from all Battle Teams. Also, the game prevents them from being traded or sent to Isle Evelup or Isle Avue at Poké Pelago until the player manually unregisters them.

In other games

Pokémon GO

Main article: Pokémon Box → Pokémon GO
The storage system in Pokémon GO

In Pokémon GO, the player has a Pokémon Box that can initially hold 250 Pokémon, including up to 9 Eggs. Pokémon Storage Upgrades can be purchased in the Shop for PokéCoin.png200, which expand the capacity by 50 Pokémon. The maximum upgradeable capacity is 2,000 Pokémon.

In the anime

A system for transferring Pokémon electronically exists, and is utilized in all Pokémon Centers as well as the labs of all Pokémon Professors. However, unlike in the games, Pokémon are not stored electronically, and in this continuity, the developer of the system was Dr. Akihabara. On one occasion, Jessie, James, and Meowth were able to invade this system in an attempt to steal Pokémon, but failed thanks to Ash and his friends.

It also seems that the Pokédex automatically connects to this system when a capture is made while there are six Pokémon in a user's party, as seen with the capture of Ash's Krabby in Mystery at the Lighthouse. Brock also states that there is a button on the Pokédex that can transfer Pokémon between the Trainer and where their Pokémon are sent. However, the Pokémon Storage System in Unova seems to lack this feature: in Sewaddle and Burgh in Pinwheel Forest!, when Ash catches Sewaddle as his seventh Pokémon, the Poké Ball shrinks and locks up instead of being teleported straight to the Pokémon Storage System.

In the manga

The Pokémon Storage System has been seen several times over the course of Pokémon Adventures. Unlike the games, however, Trainers do not have a fixed limit to the number of Pokémon they can hold on hand, and thus automatic teleportation of Poké Balls to the storage system does not seem to exist. Similar to the games, Trainers can access the system through PCs to manage their Pokémon on hand. Pokémon in the System appear to be held by the regional Professor, similar to how Professor Oak holds onto Ash's Pokémon in the anime, but usually kept in their Poké Balls instead. Records for the Pokémon Storage System are managed by the respective regional developers.

The Pokémon Storage System was first mentioned in ...But Fearow Itself!, when Red found himself bogged down by a large number of Poké Balls containing Pokémon he has caught. After he encountered Bill at Sea Cottage, Bill helped Red to manage his Pokémon storage, allowing him to change his lineup over the course of the Red, Green & Blue chapter. In Peace of Mime, Red discovered that his storage account has been broken into by Team Rocket so they could steal his Eevee, Vee.

In the Yellow chapter, Green attempted to infiltrate Sea Cottage and look at Bill's storage system records as a part of her investigation on Red's disappearance. With Bill's help, she learned that Red had accessed the system after his disappearance, confirming that he was alive.

The Pokémon Storage System's breakdown was a notable subplot during the Gold, Silver & Crystal chapter, first mentioned in Sunkern Treasure. As a result of the breakdown, no Pokémon could be transferred digitally, which posed a problem for Crystal, as she had been tasked with catching Pokémon specimens all over the Johto region for Professor Oak's research. In Surrounded by Staryu, Crystal was given a portable transfer system, presented in the form of a cable that connects her Pokédex to her Pokégear. This allowed her to transfer Pokémon she caught to the receiver at the end, although since the portable system was still a prototype, transfers could only be done one-way. The breakdown was eventually revealed to be the work of Neo Team Rocket, who had stolen all the electrical power needed for the system to work, and was fixed by Bill in time to allow Trainers from all over the region to transfer their Pokémon and help in calming the rampaging Lugia and Ho-Oh in Ilex Forest.

In the Emerald chapter, Crystal was seen managing the Pokémon Storage System from Professor Oak's Laboratory so she could send Emerald the Pokémon he needed while challenging the Battle Frontier.

Platinum accessed the Pokémon Storage System in the Platinum chapter to retrieve her new Pokémon, tasking them with the investigation of Stark Mountain after the disappearance of Looker and Buck. Later in the chapter, Team Galactic's actions created technical interference that caused the Storage System link in between the Battle Zone and mainland Sinnoh to fail, preventing the transportation of Pokémon in between the two areas.
