Question about Pokemon Black (Japanese Language Import) for DS

1 Answer

I have a legit copy of pokemon white (japanese version) I bought used. The old save file is still on the game and I would like to start a new one. When I select start new game from the beginning it tells me I can't save because the old game save is still there. I can't overwrite the old save file from the menus within the game or on the main menu before you enter the game. How to I delete the old save file so I can start a new game and save it? I don't have a copy of the manual.

Robopon Sun Version Save Problem

Your battery needs to be changed. (Or you need to buy a new copy.)
Changing the battery may be dangerous to your game and will certainly delete whatever saved files you had but if you are successful you can save again and won't have this problem until the new battery dies.
Mind the direction of the battery when you replace it as well as the battery type. (As it may change from game to game/country to country.)

Saved game gets deleted

Most of the save game issues have to do with the onboard battery dieing. If this happens, your save game will persist for a few hours and then vanish.

Yellow version saving problems

Maybe because the game is old. Did it have any water damage or something? One of my games did that but I fixed it by blowing on it and then it was fine.

Sounds like your game's internal battery is dead, not too hard to fix. Just search Google for replacing Pokemon silver battery and you should find heaps of info about it. If you do I would recommend using a new battery and not one from another game (I used one from another game and it died in about 3 weeks).
Unfortunately you will have to start your game again :(.
Hope this helps.

Hope that helps you
