There could be a couple of reasons it's doing this.
If your son has not tried to use a gameshark (a cheating device) then I would take the DS back to the store for a replacement. This is assuming that he bought it new. If it's second-hand then you'll probably have no idea,unless he bought it off of a friend.
If he used a gameshark...that could be the problem.
Gamesharks are used to change data...sometimes they will corrupt the machine up as oldest son went through this with Pokemon. It rendered his machine totally useless for several months...corrupting other games as well. He finally sent the machine in to have it serviced. Another thing that can cause this is connecting it to a computer...the tech said that anytime you connect something to a computer you are at risk for viruses...I had no clue...but he wouldn't lie to us would he? lol
Before running off to service repair,I would try re-setting the info on the DS itself.
Without a game in it,go to the main menu of the DS and try re-entering the date and such. This may help.
