If you could back save files up onto an SD card and then load them at any time, that would enable multiple saves in a way but I'm not sure that's likely just yet.

I don't see it happening, but if it did they could easily just disable duplicating your save. The game saved to slot 1, stays in slot 1.

All this worrying about save size vs game size. The 3DS does have a sd card.

As for cloning, there will always be some one out that finds a way to cheat the game. And seeing as these are coming out so soon after B/W2 and in multiple languages there is liable to have a bug or two.

Nah, I think they'll keep it as it was in previous games. After all, if someone else wants to have their own save, then they should have their own Pokémon X or Y. ;)

I Buy more copies of the game ONLY to have a second save file.

A USED copy of the game bought on the cheep, if possible. I did pay full price for Black and White. (six months apart)

Nintendo knows what they be doing!

Yep, as much as we'd all love it, Nintendo rakes in the cash by only having one save file, and I can't see them changing it any time soon.

Okay let's look at this by Nintendo's point of view

If someone wants to have 3 files for Pokemon X/Y.

Pokemon X/Y with 3 save file per game = 35$ (We'll assume it's going to be 35$)
Pokemon X/Y with 1 save file per game = 105$

If someone wanted to have 3 different files and there's only one save file per game, they would have to buy 3 copies of X/Y which will be 105$. Which brings more profit for Nintendo. So I think they would keep it the way it is now.

I doubt it. And for people complaining about multiple save files being able to clone, there are easier ways to clone Pokemon. I'm sure hackers would just use Action Replay to clone. But I highly doubt there would be multiple save files.

True, and it would basically be almost impossible to clone Pokémon without using a hacking device, not that we know there'll be a hacking device for the Nintendo 3DS anyways. xD

Seeing as most of the games (spin-offs included) did not allow for more than one save file, I doubt they'd do it here.

It was confirmed that Pokemon nicknames are the reason why we don't have more than one save file. According to an interview regarding Gen 1, They had to choose between nicknames and another save file, and they decided to choose the nickname option, because they find it fun.

I don't think this has been made yet, but what about multiple saved files? Would this be a good idea? Or a turn for the worst?

Personally, I'd like to have at max of 2 files you can play through. So say you wanted to play through the version again, but with another starter and you don't want to delete your other file. thats when the other file comes in..

But anyway, what are your guys thoughts?

Yup, we discussed this. I'm still against it.

I would be more than happy with two save files available (one for my main game, and another if I want to play through again, but keep my old stuff). That being said, money would be lost if it was more convenient to share games, so I don't see it happening for X/Y, or really any other future game.

Someone correct me if I'm mistaken, and I won't continue into this OT bit.

Did Orre's games (Colosseum and XD) have multiple save files?

Would love for it to happen, multiple save files=a play through with each new starter without having to delete my old save and old pokemon/transfer them over (which takes forever!). unfortunately, multiple save files=everyone trying to clone pokemon as well
