Recently I lost my launch 3ds which had a whole bunch of games on it, srreetpass mii plaza (find mii) fully complete, activity log data etc. I was extremely upset but thank god it had mario kart 7 in it (my brother also has a copy, we now share) and not pokemon.
I have so far put over 150 hours into this game. The catridge itself is worth 30 or whatever, but how much is your game worth to you? I think I'd rather lose my £400 phone than lose all the effort I've put in.
15 boxes of shinies acquired through trading and breeding, and tons of Pokemon I've had since 7th grade from my sapphire cart. I'd get rid of other things over my Pokemon games but never my Xbox which has far more money and time in it.

I would never want to lose my EV trained Subway team along with a complete Pokedex and a few legit shinies I've caught. I would really be mad if my game cart got deleted. Also, all those Event Legendaries I have mean a lot, too.
