Starting a new file might sound counter intuitive to the trainer that has dedicated countless hours to their playthrough. However, some may have access to multiple handhelds which allows them to afford restarting one file to obtain multiple copies of rare Pokemon. Meanwhile, others may revisit their games but are itching to start anew. Here, we show the steps on how to start a new save file.
How to create a new file
|1||Go to the System settings: the option with the gear icon, on the Switch’s main menu.|
|2||Scroll down and look for Data Management.|
|3||Again, scroll down some more to locate the option “Delete Save Data.”|
|4||Select the save data of the game you wish to delete.|
|5||If you made multiple accounts, it will ask you which account to delete, so choose to delete the one you no longer need.|
|6||Start the game and create a new file.|
One trick to making multiple save files is that you can transfer many starters to another copy after obtaining the Y-Comm. When traded, a Pokemon grows faster than normal when trained in a game it was not caught in. It may also come in handy for players who wish to obtain Pokemon from a different language for use in breeding.
