Do UP+SELECT+B another way buy another one that is not pre-owned

Just bought the pre-owned version of Soul Silver for my son. Thank you for the advice. Didn't know you could have only on profile on a card. Make sure you us the "UP button" and not the toggle. Hold all 3 of the buttons (UP+B+Select) at the same time as soon as the Pokémon character appears. Works perfectly and you start the game from scratch.
