At this rate, the Pokemon games may never have multi-save file function. After years, players still can only have one active save file at a time, and now, you’ll have to manually delete your old file to begin a new one. It’s not an intuitive process, so here’s how to delete a save file in Pokemon Sun and Moon.
First up, restart or boot up the game so that you’re at the main menu screen. As the intro movie is playing, you need to input a specific button sequence. Press the X and B button, as well as the Up button on the d-pad, all at once. Once you do this, the game will ask if you wish to delete your save file, because it’s super permanent. Select Yes, and it’ll be wiped. Now that you’ve trashed your old life and all the Pokemon you know and love, you’re free to start up a new save file and live a new Alolan life.
