Would trading to another game work? If I remember correctly, you have to save to trade.

But when you save it before it links up, it doesn't turn off. It saves, and starts the link.

I'd like it if they made it again but with better graphics/sounds and with a flash chip to keep memory and a battery to keep time. Then add version compatibility for RSE and FRLG.

No... sorry. You could tell her to trade to another game if possible. That's the only way I see. :(


Oh, darn. But I don't know anyone with a connecting cord anymore for gb/gbc. My friends like 5 years ago had them, but now I don't know anyone who still has a gbc. Otherwise, I'd gladly borrow her lv. 100 pkmn on my gold from her silver, and give them back, but it's her cousin's in the first place. And she'd have to restart it, too, and loose data of beating both pkmn leagues and all 16 gyms.DO you know anywhere I could get a connector cord besides the internet? I would go to GameStop or EBGames, but they don't sell that stuff anymore.

Just got the idea. It might not work but it's worth a shot. What if you used 2 GBAs and a GBA link cable to try and trade.

Not exactly easy to do so i just put an emulator of gold on my computer. Its legal as long as you actually own a copy of the game.Still made though I had a lot of legit shinys and a completed Pokedex

Well, maybe, even though GBA trading won't work on a DS. My friend with Silver has a GBA SP like me, so hopefully she has a connecting cord, if not I'll try for the umpteenth time to find someone with one. Too bad they don't work on DS, because that would make connecting a whole lot easier.

... Even a GBA game on a DS wouldn't work with the DS's wireless feature. No way a GBC game could do it. They wouldn't even attempt to look for a wireless connection.

Yeah. I guess I'm out of luck, then, because I don't know any way I can get a GBC connector cord to trade. I only know one other person with a GBC anyway, that's a little kid I last saw a couple years ago, he asked me to find a way to get better lighting for his older GBA. I guess trading would be harder than getting a new battery. Fo me it doesn't matter either way, I'm jsut worried for my friend's game. (actually it's her cousin's game but he let's her play it now)

But you would lose the pokemon... Unless you know how to change the battery while its on.

EDIT: (hey! I'm the first on page #4!)

Yah, that's sorta what I want to learn to do, change the battery while it 's on, if that's even possible. Do you know about when will GBC batteries go bad? If I got Crystal, I would want to know if I should change the battery.

I've already had my dad do this, almost by the book, except he did 2 things differently:
Put the battery upside down but left the tabs in the correct positions
and
Re-soldered the tabs to the battery.

This Silver will save and hold the save for maybe 15 minutes. Now I'm trying to redo the process and the knife is identical to the one he used the first time, but it won't break the tabs off of the battery :frustrated: , and I'm afraid that the tabs themselves will snap off. Any advice? Like maybe a better way to get the tabs off?

I'm so nervous to try this, but i figure i have to to get a complete Pokedex on my originals. None of my games have actually given me the message yet, but it's been over ten years and today my Pokemon Stadium deleted my Red file, so I may as well change'em before I start again.
Does anyone have the specific name of the batteries to use..?

I know I used a CR2025 but I can't remember the brand, just go to the pharmacy counter at most any store and look, because that's the only place I could find them whether it was Wal-Mart, K-Mart, Meijer, etc.

Anyone who is worried about breaking the tabs, etc., etc., don't worry. When you break the tabs off of the battery, it will make a small, almost snapping sound, and there will be a tiny piece of metal from the tabs on the battery. However, STILL do not worry. As long as the tabs are connected to the silicon chip, it'll be fine. I tried this with my Silver and Crystal, and both work PERFECTLY now. And if a fourteen-year-old can do it, almost anyone can. THANK YOU KRISP FOR THIS GUIDE!!! :D :D

EDIT: sobohobo, the battery can be any kind. I think mine were Panasonic, and were 6.99 for two at a CVS. also, you may want to use the knive like a crobar just to pry it up a little and then do what I did, which was use the tweezers I used to get that "Nazi screw" (Krisp's words) out, and just pull the top one off. Once you do that you can use your hands to pull the battery off the bottom one, but push one finger down on the spot that the tab connects to the chip so the tab stays on. For thin slices of metal, those tabs actually stay together pretty well, so just worry about it staying connected to the chip. it won't/shouldn't break in half. Hope that helps you.

its been forever since i first got them, but my gold and crystal versions stil save perfectly, lol. however....my silver version *sigh* is a whole nother story, it wont hold a save at all, and frequently freezes in the middle of the game whenever some time related event is activated, i dunno why. i have to wonder, how does it know theres a time related event going on if the battery is dead? O_O maybe its possessed. i trained ghost pokemon in my silver version. lol.

I just tested my Silver and Crystal versions earlier today, on whim wondering if they still worked. Silver plays as good as it ever did and saves perfectly. Crystal is a whole other matter; it will play just fine without freezing or any other problems, but it won't hold save data worth *bleep*. But I think that has more to do with how I played the living crap out of it up until about four years ago when I decided to just retire it for good. I may go back and fix it someday, but then, wouldn't that make it less valuable as a collector's item? I mean, GameBoy games are worth more as is with all the original tech even if it can't save anymore anymore than if you opened them up, replaced the bad battery, and put them back together, aren't they?

um. depends on what kind of value you mean. gamestop will pay the same whether or not it saves (course it depends on if you TELL them it doesnt save XD) anyways, if its sentimental value, i would just replace the battery so you can still play through the game. :D

That's quite unfortunate. Are you sure you put the battery in correctly? Putting it in upside down will not work. Try using another battery, too.
