Default Since when did this happen....

Yea i found a pokemon heart gold game with a crappy gamesave so i wanted to start over, so i go and do that but when i get to goldenrod city in one sit down and try to save it says that i need to manually delete the old save file...last time i checked it auto-deleted the game when you make a new game, this is soooooooooo freaking retarded. Why do they do that....

This was implemented into the gen 4 and beyond games to make sure that erasing game saves wasn't as easy as it was before. Someome taking it such as siblings or unpleasant people, next thing you know your precious gave save is gone.

There is also the mechanics of the Global Trade Stations, Pokemon Global Link in Gen 5 and various other things to save in a file that are more complex then inprevious games. This has basically been happening since Pokemon games could use the internet.

i made the same mistake in pokemon diamond once, i started a new game, and then i got to oranbourgh city and was going to save, i got the same message, there is some king of button combination you have to do to delete the former save file. its made so people dont delete their beloved files by accident, i did that once to lol
