    I have the same problem where i save the game, turn off the gameboy and then when i turn it back on the saved game is deleated. I have full battries when i start the game and the battries are still full when i finish. I have also brought two of the same games but both do the samething.

    I also have this problem, but with Pokemon Diamond. My guess is as the second solution suggested, that the cartridge battery is dead. (other games save and load just fine) What is the solution to a replacement battery for the cartridge? Can you provide a link to a "how-to replace the battery" website or something?

    On my pokemon gold i just bought when i first got it i played the game and saved it and it worked fine then i went back and played it again saved and turned off the gameboy color. When i turned it back on it went to new game and everytime since i always have to restart and continue game is never an option. This same thing happened when i bought pokemon silver(which i took back because i thought it was the game) Do you think it is the game again or the gameboy color itself?

    I got an new 3V battery from local watchmaker shop and replaced the old one my new battery,this one should last for more 10 years :)

The game cartridge save batteries are probably dead.

I don't think it's possible to undelete the game without a cheat device. However, the data won't be completely gone until its all written over. Even with the cheat device, you'll only be able to partially recover the data. Anyway, make sure the batteries are ste ok... and Do NOT use it if your batteries are low

My gameboy color wont save is that the gameboys problem or the games??/


Hey there,
On the gameboy, the various game saves are always stored on their respective cartridges. Therefore, if the game won't save for whatever reason, it is the game's fault, not the gameboy's.
Hope this helped!

I have a saved game of Pokemon Crystal on Playr.org but when I go to load it, a screen comes up saying "This Game Pak is only designed for use on the Gameboy Color"


Hello, I've had the same problem and been able to go around it somehow. Before I load my save, there is a second or two of in-game screen, then It shows "nintendo" and then "the game pak is only designed for gameboy color". During those seconds, QUICKLY click Save Game and do it multiple times. Some save files will still be with the odd message, while other will run perfectly. I suggest you save your game multiple times and very often, then you can test If then are running correctly, and delete the corrupted ones, or load an old one. Good Luck

My pokemon gold won't save it says I can but when I turn it back on it says new game again.


there isn't a way to bring back a corrupted Gameboy game save. The reason the save has corrupted is because the small battery in the game had died. Replacing the battery might fix your game, but it won't bring back your save.

My game will save, but when I turn it back on, there is only the "new game" and "options" displayed...I can't continue from where I saved.

Replacing the battery might fix your game, but it won't bring back your save. Well you could use a memory stick for the game boy color and advance and orginal gameboy then instead.

My son has a used ds game of Pokemon Diamond (bought off eBay)that did not come with the instruction manual. He'd like to delete the saved game that's on there so he can save his own. Does anyone know how...


Far as I know coming from former GameBoys even to the DS. The game itself is not saved upon the actual Game itself, but the System or in the case the Gameboy. If he had played the game before most likely it is a previous saved gamed he palyed or someone else. All pokemon games have a common point, that you can only play one game at a time, if you try to start a new game, the previous saved game is deleted after saving on a new game. Granted that I have not played the newer verisons of the Pokemon, but if they are anything like the older verions. Emerald, Ruby, Red, Yellow, Green, Blue, Etc. They will delete the game once a new game is started and saved.
