Do you ever start a new game after you've finished a Pokemon game?

By that I mean do you play through the game once and just keep playing in the post-game, or do you play through, then delete your file, restart, and just play through again and again for fun?

I ask because I never put much thought into post-game, but then I thought about all the event pokemon I had and lost because of restarts. I never had anyone to trade with and I only own 1 3DS so I can't even trade with myself unless I go out and buy a second one. I know X & Y are getting the virtual bank in a few months but for now, what do you guys do? I love playing through the game starting over and over but I feel I'm missing out on the post-game if I keep starting over. I guess I'm just used to these games not really having a post-game like Gens 1 through 3.

I have never deleted a save file in a Pokemon game, nor do I think I ever will.

I do...but only after another version comes out, because until then Im more than happy to enjoy the postgame content.

But its always a joy to start from scratch. I may do it sooner this time, because of the bank.

Only after a new generation comes up (then, I transfer everything I want/need there).
Otherwise, no.

Exactly this.
After I got White 2, I went through SoulSilver repeatedly.

I'm not easily impressed; I'm usually oblivious to whatever's in front of me.

I restarted HeartGold last week, but moved any good pokemon/items to other versions before I deleted it.
