How to Restart – Pokemon Sun and Moon
Looking to restart Pokemon Sun and Moon? There’s plenty of reasons why someone would want to scrap their save file early on. Maybe you want a new character and name, or maybe you’re trying for a starter with a perfect nature. In any case, here’s what you need to do.
First, because Pokemon Sun and Moon only allows you to have one active save file at a time, you’ll need to delete your current game progress. Boot up your game so that you’re at the menu screen, and then press X, B, and Up (on the d-pad). This will bring up a prompt asking if you wish to delete your file. Say yes, and whoosh, it’s gone permanently.
Now that you’ve cast aside your old life, you’ll head back to the main menu and be able to start a new game and a new adventure in the Alola region. If you ever need to restart Pokemon Sun and Moon again, just repeat this process.
