I'm probably one of the only people who have a tangible copy of this game to play in my DS (as supposed to the pirates playing the rom...you know who you are)

Since its such a short step to enable trading I was trying to start a game, pick totodile trade him to platinum make a new game transfer over a cindaquil...rinse and repeat

but in order to get into the union room you have to save...and it won't let me. I guess its a good way to prevent the only save slot on the cart from being lost.......

Yeah...you can't do that in D/P/Pt either. You need to delete the previous save file first.

Should be like D/P/Pt. There was a button combination you had to hold upon starting up the game that'll give you the option to delete your old save.

i think its a good idea. I came home from school one day to find that my 321 Dex Ruby game had been over-written by my little brother. I raged. HARD.

I'm slightly confused. You can't save if you start a new game by choosing New Game from the first menu if you have an old one? Did I interpret what you're saying wrong?

That's what it sounds like. You have to delete the old file first.
