I bought a used copy of Pokemon Pearl yesterday. When I started the game, I didn't realize that I had to delete the save file before starting the game. Now, when I try to save, it says "There is already a saved game file. It is impossible to save. Please refer to the Instruction Booklet for details." Which is even more inconvienient, seeing as I don't have the booklet. I've already gotten a number of gym badges and my Pokemon are levelled up nicely, and I don't feel like restarting. Is there any way to save my game?

Not at all! You're screwed!

The button combination to delete the previous file on the title screen is something along the lines of Up + Select + B or something like that. I dunno, try out a few button combinations.

Santa, why do you never bring me any presents? That's because your family is poor.

I know the button combination. But it only works at the title screen, which I can't get to without ending my game. >.<

Also, cant you read? when you try to start a new game when there is already a saved file, it tells you you wont be able to save unless you erase that file.

Ahhh, young grasshopper, so life now teaches a lesson on paying attention. Aren't you happy that all that is lost is a little progress in a video game? The penalties are a little more hefty for not paying attention to the road and the speed of your motorcycle.

You can only have one save file per game pak anyway, so I'd go ahead and save over it (unless you want to be nosy and see what the previous owner had).
Kinopio is the ultimate video game character! Who else can drive a kart, host parties, play tennis, give good advice and items, and is almost always happy??
