Do you erase your saved data after you've beaten the game to play through again?

I have never erased any of my save files. With certain events being for items and features that can't be traded out of the game, there's even less incentive to do so nowadays.

No. Especially with all the work I put into it.

No, cause I buy both versions. Doesn't count as restarting when you don't really care about the journey in one game anyway

I used to play through it at least twice. I stopped doing that this gen.
I don't want to be anything other than what I've been trying to be lately

I never hold on to my save file. I always get bored post game, and I never play online. I just put it down for a few months, pick it up, mess around on my old file, and start over.

I have never gotten any of the special give away stuff, so i've never cared.

I used to, back when I first started, until I started playing with friends and needed to keep/train my Pokémon for battling and trading.

Used to, stopped around RSE. I brought a 2nd copy of Emerald to do just that and ended up using it for extra storage. Been doing it ever since.

Almost never. I think my pearl (which I got after diamond) is the only game after 2nd gen that I have ever restarted. Most of the time I would sooner buy a new Pokemon game then restart an old one. I get extremely paranoid about not wanting to delete anything that may have some value, even though my old games are usually stripped dry when I migrate to a new game.
