    It's funny how Bill is more remembered as "the guy that turned himself into a Pokemon" more than "the guy that invented Pokemon digital storage".

    Honestly I think if they had it named "Bill's PC" from the start, it'd probably have more overall impact. Like when you first open it and see that you'd just think "Who the hell is Bill?" but a couple hours later Bill introduces himself and you'd be like "Oh cool you're that guy, neat."

    When I was little, my original team of Charmander, and a bunch of Rattatas weren’t cutting it. What caused me a great amount of frustration is that I really wanted to use the different Pokémon I had caught, but everytime you caught one the game says it was sent to Bill’s PC. I remember ranting to my mom about “all my Pokémon are going to this greedy guy named bill!”

    It makes me wonder why Bill and the rest of the PC creators can't just make a brand of their tech, so everyone can remember their name at the start.

    The games were designed in the early 90's, before the internet really took off. Computers could still connect with each other, however, by calling each other directly, like in Wargames. The PC makes modem sounds whenever you click on someone name, like it's dialing into different computers directly.
    Head cannon: The player's character only sees a list of phone numbers; they recognize their own number & Professor Oak's number, but don't know Bill's till they meet him.

They could have just "PKMN Storage" and "Item Storage" or something and not that PC nonsense.

      I thought it was always "Bill's PC", but in the beginning when it's just a random stranger, your character doesn't really care all that much. After you've met him, they're like "time to use the storage system invented by that weirdo who fused himself with a Pokemon". The name doesn't change, it's just the game pointing out that your character has learned something new about the world they're exploring.

    I disagree, I remembered him perfectly well. My problem is with the fact that his name is not there until you meet him, and then magically appears. Either he changes the display name only for specific users of his service after meeting each one of them, which is hard to believe unless he never goes outside his house, or the software he wrote auto-renames the box if you actually know him which means that it can read your mind or something like that. Also, in both cases it means he is offering a public service that literally doesn't specify its provider, and people actually trust putting their pokemon in there. it's like depositing your money into a virtual account connected to "some bank somewhere", without knowing where it is and who owns it and how you can trust it.

    I was not allowed to play with his Gameboy anymore after that, and I didnt find out why until I got my own copy of Blue for myself.

      @Alsyrriad 🪙 Agree. It was little side stories like this that made the games feel like a real, living world. That, and the exploratory aspect of them. Yeah, you could totally get lost and confused about where to go next, but that's realistic. You're canonically a pre-teen (or teen, depending on the game) heading out on a journey across the whole region by yourself for the first time with little/no prior experience and no companion(s) except little animal creatures who can't tell you sh*t about where to go next. It's unrealistic to _not_ get lost.
      I'd give a pass to SwSh on that because at least the in-game explanation makes sense, in that, if it's basically a tournament, they should be telling you exactly where to go, because it's poor management on their part if they don't. Still doesn't make sense how the map is so linear, though, unless they built their entire region around the tournament???

    I always interpreted it like this: The PC is always named Bill's PC but because you haven't met him yet it was referred to as ''Someone'' because it's just a random ass name. Who is this Bill guy? After you meet him you put two-and-two together and the game changes the name to Bill's PC to show that the player knows who it is referring to.

He works with Oak and they want to research all types of Pokemon so they ask you for help. You then store the pokemon onto Bills PC because he is the pokemon expert and inventor of the storage system.
