Fifth Generation Are Pokémon slaves to humans? Team Plasma thinks so. Travel the Unova region and prove them wrong in Black & White, and then return two years later in Black2 & White2.

Not likely, unfortunately. If you want more than one save, Nintendo expect you to buy more than one copy of the game.

I'm so cynical, aren't I?

True! I want that too! And If it does, when the times come for me to buy both Black and White, I guess It'll be more easier for me to trade over the starters to each game. So I get the three starters.

That would be cool, but Nintendo wouldn't get as much money than with one save file.

It would be too easy to abuse the game for starters and such, and anyway, Nintendo wants your money - why have two save files when you can have two games?

Anyway, I like having only one save file. :D
Not as much responsibility, you see. :D

Thats how Nintendo thinks. You will have to buy several games if you dont want to share the file.

Please don't, imo. More saved files could translate into limited capabilities for the games (since the DS cartridge can only hold so much as of now). I'm happy with the one saved file, and it's like a staple of pokemon. yes having more than one saved file would be awesome, though in a way it could defeat the purpose of trading pkmn, etc. Like why trade for a Tsutaja when you could just start a new file and get one?

I have wanted this since the original R/B, but I really highly doubt it will happen. Each cartridge is supposed to be YOUR cartridge, and nobody else's. As people have said, it is to make sure you get only one event pokemon or legendary.

Personally, I use a game save backup device like Action Replay, though to be honest I haven't started any new games. Pokemon is so slow that I only want to play the main story once per game.

Hahahah, please THINK before posting.
When playinjg Zelda, you just go through the story and have a great time and you're done.
When playing pokemon, you trade, collect pokemon, and items, and every time you play its a different experience. They're two completely different games.

And PipVoda is right. Having a second save file would only mean half the experience of a usual pokemon game.

Not gonna happen. It takes the fun out of... actually, it doesn't harm trading. You can't trade in one Game Card... I don't see why they don't do this?

Okayyy!!!Let me get out my economics book :D ::flips through pages in head::: Put it this way, pokemon games are a utility and with all utilities you may want it (or need) or just want some updates to it (like more saved files). These saved files are marginal utility (you buy/have more thus making you happy) but like Bleu pointed out pokemon games are slow and sooner or later you'd get tired of playing through another saved file (law of diminishing marginal utility)...Now if Nintendo adds in more saved files we all may be shortly happy..but sooner or later the LoDMU will come into effect an more saved files would just mean less fun and possibly more headaches...that means you'd be less likely to buy another pokemon game since you already have more than one saved file on one..and you've gotten tired of it already :D. And one thing we know about Nintendo is that they want you to buy more pokemon games.



does that help? And a sidenote..like I mentioned in another post Idk how much the DS catridges can hold so more saved files could mean limited capabilities in other aspects (graphics, etc).

you should THINK before you insult sumone baka.

i did THINK thats why i posted it, just cuz you go threw the storyline, and end doesnt mean its the end, alot of fans enjoy goin over the storyline multiple times, i am one of them.
so maybe you should THINK before you act so rudely.
------------------------
i think they should put 2save files, that way one can have their main file were they collect their pokemon, and everythin
and the 2nd could be used simple to play threw the storyline multiple times.
not only that, they could always do the "2nd Quest"
where you can start over with everythin you already obtained
they started that with yugioh world championship after many fans kept askin for it, sure it took them 2years to get the hint, but nintendo isnt completely hopeless.
after all theirs multiple games in the zelda franchise that do the "2nd Quest" thing the original zelda is 1 of them, majoras mask is another

It won't happen. There's too much in a tiny Pokémon game to hold two (or more O___o) save files, and it'd be too easy to trade from game to game. And anyway, it's a trio of games, so that's three save files right there.

Wrong. There was quite a bit leftover space in the 4th gen games. Game Freak could have given us multiple save files in GSC.

I shouldn't have to pay $35-$40 for another save file.

Hahahah, please STOP insulting other members. :)

There are plenty of collecting games that save multiple save files. Look at the Monster Hunter series, it's avery similar to Pokemon in some aspects.There's a very shallow plot and the game is focused on collecting. This game gives you multiple save files and it doesn't harm it at all.


I'm Kirbychu, and I support the multiple save file notion.

Whoever thinks that having more than one save file on a Pokemon game is a feasible concept is an idiot, to put it lightly. Nintendo want to make as much money as they can from these games, and know that some people are going to buy both so they can collect all the Pokemon.

This is why they have version exclusive Pokemon. They wouldn't make two different versions otherwise. The explanation to the Zelda and Mario games having 2-3 save files is that there is only one versions of the game per 2-3 years.
