Sounds like your game's internal battery is dead, not too hard to fix. Just search Google for replacing Pokemon silver battery and you should find heaps of info about it. If you do I would recommend using a new battery and not one from another game (I used one from another game and it died in about 3 weeks).
Unfortunately you will have to start your game again :(.
Hope this helps.

Is this a used game? If it is, you may need to take it back to the store you bought the used game and tell the worker your problem.

there is a small battery inside the carriage, replacing this will give the game the ability to keep saved data once again. *Note* I do not suggest doing this unless your experienced doing such thing. you can damage the board of the game if on careful.

Can your Pokemon game still hold a save?

If your Game Boy game is no longer able to hold a save, yet can still be played fine, that most likely means that the battery in the game cartridge has run out of energy.

You can easily replace this battery, restoring the cartridge's ability to store save data. This replacement can be performed for much less than the cost of buying a new game. You just need to purchase a new battery.

**Basic soldering skills required**

Materials:
Soldering iron
New 3 Volt Coin Cell Battery - CR2025 (165mAh) or CR2032 (220mAh)
Adhesive tape
Fine tipped hemostat or needle-nosed pliers

Flip over your cartridge.

Locate Screw

Using a hemostat, needle-nosed pliers, or anything else that you can grip it with, unscrew this little screw by turning counter-clockwise.

Once the screw has been removed, turn cartridge over, slide the front cover downwards, and pull it off.

Now you can see the circuit board, and the battery that allows one of the chips to retain the game save data.

You can see that both Pokemon Red and Silver cartridges look very similar, except that the Silver circuit board has a crystal oscillator in the upper left-hand corner to control the passing of time in the game.

My Pokemon Silver whenever I hit continue, All it says is "Save File Is Corrupted!" What can I do insstead of restaring it??????/


Pokemon Silver and Gold have a tendency to corrupt itself after too many uses of glitches. Once the game is corrupted you won't be able to save at all anymore.
