In [[Generation III]], [[Pokémon Box Ruby & Sapphire|Pokémon Box]] was introduced, which allowed players to store their large collections without worrying about taking up PC space; in fact, players were rewarded for transferring more Pokémon into Pokémon Box, making the living Pokédex goal more appealing.
In [[Generation IV]], players can use [[My Pokémon Ranch]] to store up to 1000 Pokémon.
However, since the onset of [[Generation IV]], no new edition of Pokémon Box has been released in countries other than Japan yet, stunting the collection size of many collectors. Those who aim to complete a living Pokédex, particularly one with [[form differences]], must do so while sacrificing most of their box space which could be used for multiple [[legendary Pokémon|rare and valuable Pokémon]], [[alternate coloration|shiny Pokémon]], and [[Pokémon training|trained Pokémon]]. To create a living Pokédex with one of every species, as well as all {{p|Unown}}, {{p|Shellos}}, {{p|Gastrodon}}, {{p|Burmy}}, {{p|Wormadam}}, and {{p|Deoxys}} forms, one is only left with 11 box spaces, leaving one with only enough space for 12 of the 17 {{p|Arceus}} forms. Of course, these other Pokémon could be [[trading|traded]] to another game, which players who aspire to obtain a living Pokédex probably already have in order to obtain [[version-exclusive Pokémon]].
