Well, you'll first need to go to the main title screen. Once there, hold down Select, B, and Up at the same time. That will give you the option to delete your saved game data. Good luck.

you have to be on the title screen. Restart your game and delete the data. Sucks that you'll lose stuff though.

To restart your file, hold Up+SELECT+B when the picture of Reshiram is on your screen.

Up+select+b all together, hold it for about 3 seconds and then touch will be asked if you want to delete all games, the enter key is the "a" button and answered the questions

Did anyone ever get it to work for the DSi XL? Because I have been trying for a long time and still nothing, the game box just moves up to select a different box to put it in.. No delete option.

For those of you like me who continually tried this and got frustrated having no luck, you need to first select the game and then hold up, select, and b on the screen that says "pokemon black", not the menu page for the ds. Then it will ask if you want to delete your saved data

If you want to delete your data on a DSi XL you must click UP and Down on the D-Pad, along with SELECT and B all at the same time. A blue screen should show up asking if you want to delete your data

Alternative solution if you are just looking to start over. Go to the original zip file of your copy of the game. Open the zip file. Rename the game file so that you can differentiate it from your original copy. Load that rom in the game and there won't be any saved file you even need to erase. Voila!
