I used to. I think it was because I thought you always lost HALF your money if you were completely defeated, and I just kinda considered it "losing" the game somehow. So I always reset to my last save.
Nowadays I only do it if I know I would have beaten them if it weren't for my mistakes or luck. If I get completely trounced I'll often keep going for the EXP I earned in the fight to make the next ones easier.
But when I was younger, every time-->RESET! Anyone else? --- In the age of information, ignorance is a choice.

I used to reset, usually at the E4 champions or if there was an irritating puzzle. But yeah, I stopped because I get to keep the EXP, which means I get a better chance at beating whoever defeats me. --- GamerTag: SorrowOfAcheron, RageOfFenrisulf Eurynome, Lv.200 Sorcerer

I don't think I've ever accepted a loss, actually. Doesn't matter how long it's been since the previous save or whatever, I just don't want the money loss. --- If you actively hate Justin Bieber... then you don't know what "intended audience" means. Hate Twilight instead, it's far worse.
