    Do you think Pokemon X and Y (And future Pokemon 3DS games in general) can support multiple save files? This could help against annoying brothers and sisters who delete your save file.

      Um That wouldn't help any more than the already in place save protection of not being able to delete the save file without being at the Main Menu

      Plus if there were Multiple save files it Would be far to easy to Clone Pokemon

      I don't see them adding in another spot to have more than one save, honestly. Then again, with all the crazy things Game Freak has done the past few years, I don't think anyone can really predict this kind of stuff haha.

        OMG YES. This would be great! :,D

        Then I can be more organized in the housing of my prized Pokes! Multiple save files= more boxes in my PC. :3

          It Won't Happen

          Multiple Save Files = Easy Pokemon Cloning

            I don't think so. I don't think they will break this tradition.

            Besides, thinking about why Pokémon games have 1 save file per cart, I'm not sure I want this. Scratch that, I'm sure I don't want this. Every time you win against a trainer, pick up an item or complete a side mission, it adds to the size of the save file. Pokémon themselves take a lot of space. It's basically either you have one save file and a big Pokémon game with lots of stuff to do, which is the case now, or (insert number here) saves and (the same number) times less trainers to fight, items to pick up, side quests, boxes in the Pokémon storage system etc. With each generation becoming bigger and better, emphasis on the "bigger", having multiple save files with all the repercussions would severely handicap the game.

              Actually the Save File Doesn't get any bigger at all

              A Save File is a Pre-Determined Size from the Start and it stays that size Forever

              DS Save Files were Generally 512kb 3DS Save will Probably be Between 1-4mb

                Nintendo is a company. Companies exist to make money. 1 save per cart makes someone not wanting to delete their save obtain more copies of the game. More games bought = More Money

                  I know, I just tried to explain it without going into too much detail .

                  But this is an even better way to explain the problem: either you have 4mb allocated to one save file with all the Pokémon data you can store, all the "Trainer fought" and "Item picked up" flags etc allowing a huge amount of content to be played, or you split it in 1mb files per save file, allowing to save much less data (EG: 4 boxes instead of 16) .

                    I don't see them adding this feature. Seems like one is enough.. and there isn't really any hardware problems with the way it's acting now.. plus.. more save files= more people playing one game= less sales.

                    I don't see it ever happening to be honest. It would just mean less people buying additional games. Not to mention the problem of Pokémon transfer.

                    I don't see why some of y'all are bringing up easy cloning? You can easily clone in gen V, so...I don't see how that's a big deal. :/ I guess cause they'd be giving us the opportunity for it, but still.

                    Don't think it'll happen anyway though.

                      Also if Multiple Save files were added Lets put it this way

                      A 3DS Game is between 1-8GB (And Seeing as though this is Pokemon expect it to be around 3gb)
                      The following things would Increase the Game ROM Size
                      3D Models (Which 6th Gen has)
                      The Length of the Game
                      The Amount of Pokemon


                      And With Multiple save files at 4mb each (Most games that allow multiple saves allow for 2-3 Saves) Thats About 8-16mb Worth of Save Files (And Multiple Saves are Normally Merged into 1 File to reduce clutter) So thats Basically a Predetermined File Size of 16mb Thats a Bit Big for a Game Save

                      Highly unlikely, but I wouldn't complain if this was implemented. :3

                      ...Though I don't know if that would get much use...eh...

                        Can't see it happening. It wouldn't really effect me to be fair as I don't have anyone else to be wanting a shot of it, good time to be an only child. But I really doubt they would add more.

                            I'd definitely like this to be implemented. It'd allow me to play both as a girl and a boy, with completely different teams. Although it might tarnish sales, like others have mentioned, so that might be an issue...

                              BECAUSE CLONING WOULD RUIN THE DAMN GAMES

                              If you could clone a Pokemon Legit then
                              You could clone your Pokemon then trade 1 Copy away and get an Ultra cool Pokemon
                              and the Other Person didnt clone their Ultra Cool Pokemon

                              That means that other Person traded their Ultra Cool Pokemon with you hoping to get Potentially your 1 and Only X Pokemon but in reality you basically got the Ultra Cool Pokemon for Free...

                                I'd LOVE for multiple save files. It would allow me to have a second file for challenge runs without having to buy the other version or using an emulator(and I despise using emulators)

                                  I don't think this'll happen, as the save data is saved onto the game card, not the system, which would mean multiple save files difficult because the card would hold less data than a system.

                                    People already clone Pokemon all the time, there are several really easy ways to do it! That's how we trade nowadays really It's not like that really! That's how we get to keep our shinies so we can trade it away to more people. You can only benefit really! Plus if you only want a regular (not shiny, not EV or IV) Pokemon, it's actually quite easy, lots of people are willing to trade them away for free! :3

                                    I would love it if multiple save files could happen, but I don't really see it! Wouldn't it take up a lot of space? I would prefer a large game file than one half the size and the ability to play with multiple files. I'm not sure though because I don't actually make the games!

                                    They haven't had any multiple files for any spin offs where I can see it being more likely, so I don't think this game will be the one.

                                      Plus if there were Multiple save files it Would be far to easy to Clone Pokemon
                                      This. I mean, imagine these steps:

                                      1. Play game. Collect all legendaries, some Events, etc.
                                      2. On menu, Copy Game function to duplicate game.
                                      3. Trade Pokémon from duplicate game.
                                      4. Delete duplicate game.
                                      5. Repeat steps 2-4.

                                      It would mean infinite duplicate legendaries. Not what GF has in mind. They won't do this the same as many other types of games do (New Super Mario Bros. 2 for example), but they possibly could allow a second or third save WITHOUT the ability to copy your game. Or they might include a backup function that allows you to restore a saved game deleted in error (this might also be abused however by hackers).

                                      Uhhhhh....dude. There are several ways to clone PKMNs. Example, you have Soul Silver and Diamond, you can clone your PKMNs in Diamond then trade to Sul Silver to trade to another person. You can clone PKMNs even in one game one save file. Another example: A dude wants Pichu for his Togepi. You can catch Pichu in the same place you catched him, then trade one and you keep the other one with you O_O. So, yeah, I hope they can make multiple save files.

                                        Highly doubtful -- they make more money by having only one save per file because people will buy another copy of the game.
