The base capacity of storage starts from 300 and it can be maximized up to 6150.

Various items like berries, potions, revives, TMs, pokeballs and other items required for evolution can be stored but excessive of them can clog the space.

In order to maintain it, one should get rid of the extra items which aren't necessary.

It can be anything, a few berries, or potions depending on the user's need. That way one can maximize their storage before any event.
