Should there be multiple saves on one cartridge?

Not unless they give us the ability to trade between the different save files.


That's probably the main reason they don't.
Start new game, beat first gym, trade starter.
Rinse, repeat.
Congrats, you now have all 3 starters.

Considering how easy it is to get starters by trading online, I don't see how this is a real problem.

I want it to happen because too often I want to replay one of the games but can't because I don't wanna lose 200 or 300 hours of progress.

I never found reasonable trades on the GTS, ever.
Besides, that would eliminate the main problem of A:Needing a friend, or B:Trying to find a reasonable trade.
It takes, what? an hour to get past the first gym most of the time?

I doubt there will be, as 3DS games all use the 3DS FC system, instead of a separate FC per game.
Having multiple save files would conflict with that, and you would have multiple trainers with the same FC. Though it could work similar to Kid Icarus, where each save file would be for a different Mii on the system.

That's why you need to make your own offer instead of wading through the masses of other people's offers on the GTS.

There should, but there won't be. No chance Game Freak loses that source of income - it's part of their two version business model.

Where you see a means to destroy, I see a way to control--to dominate and harness the Reapers' power. Imagine how strong humanity would be if we controlled them
