For example, I have two separate point feature classes. I want to delete points of one feature class if it is within x distance of a point from the other feature class.

I am using ArcGIS Pro.

This is a three step process. You need to first select your point to search from, find and select the points to delete, then you delete those selected points. You haven't said you need to automate this, so I'll answer manually running tools within ArcGIS Pro.

  1. Select the point from your feature class using the Select tool.
  2. Open the Select by Location tool, and change the Relationship to Within a distance and update the Search Distance. Use the Selecting features to choose the feature class with your single point selected. The Input features should be the feature class of points you wish to delete.
  3. Run the Delete Features tool. It will only delete the selected features.
