A '''living Pokédex''' is a [[Pokémon games|game]] which not only has a complete [[Pokédex]], but has one of every available species of [[Pokémon]] stored in its [[PC]] boxes as well, usually in their [[List of Pokémon by National DexPokédex number|National DexPokédex order]]. It follows the most literal interpretation of the former slogan of the series, "[[Gotta Catch 'em All!]]". It is considered a holy grail among some [[collector]]s. Among others, it is considered a waste of time and box space.
Perhaps one of the most challenging questions is not how to obtain a living Pokédex, since that is mostly a matter of patience and access to multiple games, but rather what to do with the living Pokédex once it is complete. In particular, in this instance, or with any large Pokémon collection in general, the question of storage arises.
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, and up to 1500 with the [[My_Pokémon_RanchMy Pokémon Ranch#Platinum_UpdatePlatinum Update|updated version]].
