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

Does it automatically save? I have when I'm playing Gold and I haven't saved in awhile, I accidentally knock it against something and it freezes up or restarts and I lose possibly a couple hours' worth of training.

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.

My Gold and Silver both save, but I feel like they've lasted long enough that it'll happen any day now.

do u know wt i would love, it would be that all pokemon games last forever. that way, i would never hav to find and buy another crystal when it dies beyond recharge, and would never hav to actully recharge(i hate stuff that can only be done if u hav finger/eye cordination(so i can read this topic while working))

I sliced it with a knife.

By the way, you don't "recharge" anything. You REPLACE a battery, it's much different.

okay, i have a question:
my crystal version no longer even goes to the main game. when i put it in my gbasp, the little rainbow gameboy logo flashes, and a black bar shows up; then nothing. is this related to the battery dying, or is it another issue entirely??

Rex, the black bar is just your game is not being able to be read.

you could try that, but when my crystal/emerald/ruby do this i just take it out, lightly blow into the GBASP/game and try again.

The guide worked for me with Gold, as well as my old Kirby game.

I was wondering if it was OK to copy the guide on http://www.neopets.com, since I've encountered so many people saying 'i thought my gold/silver was just special because it didn't save', and you aren't allowed to link off-site from neopets, or even mention another site. Could I please copy at least the text? I would put it on a pet page (neopets.com/~petname) and link people there instead. It would be a great service from psypoke to neopets, even if I can't really mention the site.

Edit: Awhile ago, I guess I must've bumped my Kirby game just right and I lost my save data, but it still saved after I restarted it. Same thing with Gold the other day. *sniff* I only had 8 badges... It was weir, though. I was fighting in Union Cave, and my Dodrio's PP went down to 9, then I fought outside the cave at the Ruins f Alph and its PP went back up to 11. I knew I'd lost the save data.

I have a similar problem here on red version, only it doesn't even show the copyright dates when i start the game up. It just goes to a black screen after the gameboy startup. The strange thing is that I put the game into Pokemon Stadium (1) and it reads the save file, but I can't use any Pokemon I have on the game and the Dodrio GB Tower won't load the game either. My other 2 red versions does the same thing as your crystal version, but I can't play it on a gameboy. Only on stadium. I can't perform trades on stadium either otherwise it deletes the game file.

If I posted this in the wrong area, please tell me.

One last thing, does yellow version take a different size battery?

A month late, sorry, I don't check this subforum very often...

Zdude, it sounds like an internal problem in your cartridge. I've had Gameboy games that just...die and act very similar to the problems you described. Sorry, but I don't think it can be saved.

Yellow Version does take a smaller battery for some reason, but it's no problem, you can still use a CR2025 battery in it. The voltage is the same and it still works fine. I usually try to cram an even larger battery, CR2032 in my cartridges, because they're easier to find in supermarkets.

I'm completely amazed by this little trick. Honestly I never thought I'd be able to get a working Crystal version because mine was burnt out and I didn't feel like buying online. I saw this thread and I have to admit it works to absolute perfection! The only thing you might have to get over is that if you're playing Crystal like me, the game itself is transparent and you can see the tape, which looks a little messy. Other than that it's like a brand new game. Much thanks to whoever posted this!

I think i have the same problems as the crystal-guys above here..

I have cleaned the cartridge with a q-tip but nothing else, in case of dirt on the contacts. But i do not have rubber alcohol to clean it with too.


The contacts seem to have a tiny little bit of yellow "dust" maybe but, i don't know for sure since i did not get it open and i don't have a metal polish for it :/

Rubbing alcohol is by no means hard to find; you could probably find it at the dollar store. If I had to guess i'd say your problem is being caused by internal damage and is unrepairable. Luckily eBay does exist and even if you got a cartridge that didn't save, you could use this guide to fix it.
