    I just thought of an interesting question, how will we fit all 493 Pokemon plus all the new Pokemon's different forms? We barely fit them all on D/P. Is there an extra box?

    With 493 Pokemon plus all the different forms of Unknown, Burmy/Wormadam, Shellos/Gastrodon, Deoxys, Rotom, Giratina, Arceus, and Shaymin, is there enough space?
    If so (probably), how will it be distributed?

    They will force your choices. Make you not have every Pokemon ;D

    But maybe in the future Pokemon games, they will add extra box storage. They probably think that all Pokemon users aren't collectors, so they think we get a Pokemon, we use it for Pokedex data, then we just trade it off again...

    Even so... Some pokémon aren't quite the ones you would use... Like Magikarp... So why make room for them? Trade it and make more room for others is a great option!

    You aren't really going to make a living Pokedex (all Pokemon eg Box 1: Bulbasaur, Ivysaur, Venusaur...) so the number will be much lower than 493, eg you will have Box 1: Venusaur, Blastoise, Charizard... instead of each one.

    There are 18 boxes in Pokémon DPPt. Each box carries 30 pokés, IIRC. That makes a total of 540 pokés that can be stored. Are there 47 "alternate forms" to fill the remaining slots? If so, then just a few pokémons will be left out... not a big deal. I'd understand if someone wanted all the Unown forms, but why would you need a sample of each stage in a certain evolution line? Bragging rights?

    And why is the Unown forms so needed? Only one is enough... You don't have any special mission to makes you have that!

    As I said, bragging rights. At least, capturing them is a sort of "test", given the many forms there are.

    That's right. Its kind of bullshit that you can't collect them all when the whole point of the game is too collect them all (depending on the person).

    You can have all 493 Pokémon, and also have space for other Pokémon:
    You have 18 boxes, with 30 Pokémon per box, with a total of 540 Pokémon.

    493 + other Pokémon forms (like Deoxys, Giratina, Shaymin and others).

    Answering your question.. YES, you can have all Pokémon physically without any problem [​IMG]

    Although they are not essential to the completion of the game the unown that you catch help you obtain the various letter seals in a side quest. Also, when all 26 unown are caught another two become available to catch.

    I've already posted this, but since you seem to have completely ignored it...

    Unown - 28
    Rotom - 6
    Burmy - 3
    Wormadam - 3
    Deoxys - 4
    Shaymin - 2
    Giratina - 2

    I'm not counting Arceus' typing changes, nor battle-exclusive forms like Castform's. There may be more, but that list gives you a total of 48 different forms, not counting Shellos'/Gastrodon's recolourings to avoid getting too technical. 493 + 48 = 541. It seems that you are wrong and you can't fit every pokémon with its variations in your PC boxes.

    Joey Ravn is right, that's exactly what I meant but there's one problem with his conclusion.

    He counted: Unown - 28, Rotom - 6, Burmy - 3, Wormadam - 3, Deoxys - 4, Shaymin - 2, Giratina - 2

    All correct except each one of those Pokemon already have 1 entry in the national Pokedex. (Unknown has 28 types - 1 entry in National Pokedex = 27)

    My Count: Unknown - 27, Rotom - 5, Burmy - 2, Wormadam - 2, Deoxys - 3, Shaymin - 1, Giratina - 1, Shellos - 1, Gastrodon - 1, Arceus - 16 (17 forms - 1 from Pokedex Entry)

    That leaves us with 59 Extra Pokemon Forms. 493 + 59 = 552. Storage: 540, Party: 6 = 546. --> NOT ENOUGH

    We did it in D/P but with the extra 7 forms we can't make it.

    This is what I think...

    Keep all the final forms of any Pokemon that are Female. Then have a Ditto. Keep all the legendaries, and if the legendaries have difference forms, then you should be able to change them anytime (eg. Rotom). The Unknowns are just for collectors that want to feel special. My friend actually had the time to catch everysingle one of them... And right now, I don't feel any different. So just catch one, and you should be fine.

    This is what I am thinking right now. Also Giratina has 2 forms, but only one can be used in a section of the game (think it was that new place where you catch it).

    EDIT: When I say legendaries, I mean any genderless Pokemon

    If you count Unown, you can't have all, but Unown aren't necesary to have, because are the same Pokémon with other form, not like other forms of others Pokemon, like Deoxys, that are a "little" different of his original form.

    There is enough room for EVERY single Pokemon, in all the boxes. The game was made like that. You can have one form of every Pokemon, and a box for all unowns. Trust me, it fits.
