In [[Generation IV]], players can use [[My Pokémon Ranch]] to store up to 1000 Pokémon, and up to 1500 with the [[My Pokémon Ranch#Platinum update|updated version]]. Unlike Pokémon Stadium games and Pokémon Box, players could not use My Pokémon Ranch to transfer large amounts of Pokémon from one game to another very quickly.
In [[Generation V]], there was no storage "game" available. However, trading between boxes could facilitate more trades per session. Also, beginning with [[Pokémon Black 2 and White 2]], players could obtain additional rewards for completing the Pokédex.
In [[Generation VI]] and [[Generation VII]], [[Pokémon Bank]] can store up to 3000 Pokémon online. The ability to transfer many Pokémon between games was restored.
