Well, I wouldn't ever do that unless I could backup all the Pokés I have, since I've got a lot of legendaries and some nice pokémon. It wouldn't be good to just get rid of them.

I would never erase my Diamond file. Especially since I have some event Pokes on there.

See, that's why I get both version, so I can trade over all the great pokes, and other things, and then have one to delete, or restart really. Only do that when bored.

When I start new games for a random reason I just trade my faves to my sis to hold onto for me xD

I restarted my Emerald version once, but that was just because I had used AR on it and it was all screwy. I don't think I'm going to restart Diamond or Pearl anytime soon, though. I already played through both of them, and I'm waiting for Platinum!!!!! :D

The only time I ever restart a game is when I can trade all my pokemon, items, TMs, and rare berries over to another game. That way I don't have to worry about losing all my hard work.

I like Pokemon (...)

I restart fairly often. I can't go to events because I always end up missing them... so I have nothing to do, really (and I've never caught a shiny, except that Gyarados in Gold/Silver/Crystal).

I usually buy both versions, and a couple copies. I have my favorite game (Diamond, for instance) as my main file. I play through another diamond and two pearl games, and trade over my favorites to the main game before I restart.

I never restart, mainly because I do everything with so much detail in the games, it will be a shame. Although, I could easily transfer my pokemon before restarting using my two DS lites.

I think evrybody switches between 2 or more games and trades them to the other if restarting.
i do it with D/P, R/S/E and FR/LG

I would never restart :x I have 6 boxes of non hacked legends and events and the best shiny Milotic on Smogon.

Id never reastart because I have WAY too many pokemon, and several events. When platinum comes out, I'm going to play and not restart that, but maybe sometime I'll buy an extra platinum/ D or P and mess around on it

I don't restart often, but I did at the start of last year and when I did I sent over all my pokemon that I worked hard on (about 20 of them) to my brother. Then he traded them back ASAP. But now hes sold his DS so I can't trade anymore lol.

I want to restart, but I'm just gonna keep myself occupied until Platinum comes out. I can wait a month or so.

I already foolishly restarted and lost all of my cherished FR Pokes. :(

For me, it's just a game. I traded away all my shinies a few months ago; Jolly Gible, Adamant Male Ralts, a few more with perfect natures. End of the day, it's just a game. I plan to make my current runthrough my last. I've just destroyed everything with my Luxray, just beat the second gym. I'm not even sure what to catch, i've overplayed this game and have used most of the pokemon :/

I restart my games all the time. I think I've restarted all the ones I have, too.

I'm not planning on restarting my diamond anytime soon since I've only had it about a month and a half. I plan on getting Platinum, but I'm still going to keep both games on the original playthrough. If I ever get Pearl, I'll probably restart it from time to time like I did w/ Ruby and Saphire (Saphire being reset).

To me, pokemon is a game. I'm not one of those people who's "throwing away hard work" when I restart. To me, the reward for the hard work is accomplishment.

And I'm a collector. I restart when collecting just isn't fun anymore for that current file.
