Pokemon Scarlet and Violet fans are shocked to find out that they only have eight storage boxes for Pokemon. Luckily, they can unlock more.
Pokemon Scarlet and Violet players were understandably shocked to discover that they had only eight storage boxes to store their unused Pokemon. Naturally, the first inclination is to try to find a way to increase the number of Pokemon that can be stored, and thankfully, there is a way to do so. The odd thing is that the game doesn’t really explain how players can unlock more box space, but there is a trick they can use immediately after starting to maximize their box space.
For new players, eight boxes of storage with 32 slots each may seem like more than enough space for storing Pokemon; however, avid collectors will use boxes for a variety of purposes. Pokemon Scarlet and Violet players can use boxes to organize teams, store shiny Pokemon, and even create a living Pokedex, in addition to storing unused Pokemon.
Purchasing Extra Storage Boxes
When players initially access their storage PC, they will have only eight boxes available, but this number can be increased rapidly. To expand their box space, players need only place at least one Pokemon in each available box. With numerous new Pokémon introduced in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, this should be simple. After this, players need only save and exit the game before relaunching it. Returning to the PC, players will discover that their storage space for unused Pokemon has doubled to 16 boxes from the original eight.
Players can take this a step further to acquire even more PC storage space. Simply repeat the previous step by filling each of the sixteen boxes with at least one Pokemon, and then save and exit the game. After reloading the game, players will have access to a maximum of 32 boxes. With each box holding 30 Pokemon, players of Pokemon Scarlet and Violet can store a total of 960 Pokemon. This is the limit, so there is no way to increase the box size further. Nonetheless, this should suffice even if players wish to compile a living Pokedex.
The hardest part of making the most of box space is just catching enough Pokemon to put one in each box. Basically, players need to catch 16 Pokemon, which they can do as soon as they get Pokeballs. Last but not least, if players still think that 32 boxes aren’t enough to sort their Pokemon, Pokemon Home will be added to Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.
