Can't delete previous game to start/save a new on in Pokemon Diamond

My son wants to delete the saved version of Pokemon Diamond on his DS-lite so that he can start a new game.  We have tried the  up/start/B key combo that is in the game manual, but it doesn't seem to work.  Anyone have an idea?

Okay you have to go to new game and press A and it would pop up some message that you already have a saved file so at the title screen where you see that pokemon dialga or whatever at that point press Up/start/B and it should say do you wish to delete the previous Pokemon diamond file and Press A to confirm. Hope that helps you

My son bought a pre-owned Pokemon Black Version game for Nintendo DS Lite and he cannot save the game as there is already an saved game and profile. Is there anyway to delete the existing game/profile?


Hi Jeaston151,
To delete a Pokemon Black save file, press the following buttons at the start screen: up, select and B.
Your son will now be able to start his own file!
Have fun, and go catch 'em all!

Cheers, Garbanian

My son has a used ds game of Pokemon Diamond (bought off eBay)that did not come with the instruction manual. He'd like to delete the saved game that's on there so he can save his own. Does anyone know how...


Far as I know coming from former GameBoys even to the DS. The game itself is not saved upon the actual Game itself, but the System or in the case the Gameboy. If he had played the game before most likely it is a previous saved gamed he palyed or someone else. All pokemon games have a common point, that you can only play one game at a time, if you try to start a new game, the previous saved game is deleted after saving on a new game. Granted that I have not played the newer verisons of the Pokemon, but if they are anything like the older verions. Emerald, Ruby, Red, Yellow, Green, Blue, Etc. They will delete the game once a new game is started and saved.

i went ahead and tried starting a new game on pokemon diamond so i could try taking the game out during saving. Before i got to do anything,as a pressed the button to start a new game a warning screen came up and told me if i wanted to start a new game nothing would be saved because of the previous game, would you like to delete the existing game? then it gave directions on how to delete it.
