Question about Nintendo Pokemon Yellow Version: Special Pikachu Edition

2 Answers

My Pokemon Yellow game won't save!

My game just won't save! I hit save game and when i start it up again, my only options are New Game or Options. Also there is a rattling noise inside the cartridge, I assume that has something to do with it. Any clue what it could be?

Hi. I had the same problem, but I found a solution. After saving the game, count to 60, then switch it off. I hope this helps.

Some games come with a little battery inside...If you remember Legend of Zelda for the NES, it had a battery in it. All you have to do is unscrew the cartridge (if possible) locate the battery, they usually look like small watch batteries...if found, take it to your local battery store and get a new one.

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.

I have started a new game on pokemon crystal several times, saved the game and then turned off my gameboy. Then when i turn it back on there is no option for continue, only new game. How do i fix this?


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.

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.

After I saved my file on pokemon yellow version special pikachu edition I turned it off. When I turned the game on all it said was new game and options instead of continue


Alright, save games on most Game Boy games are stored on the game itself. To keep these games saved, each game has a small battery continually providing power to a small memory unit actually installed on the game. What has probably happened is that the battery inside the game has run out of power, and so it won't hold any saves anymore. The good news is that these batteries are easilly replaceable, and there's quite a number of online walkthroughs to show you how to do it. If you run into trouble finding one, let me know and i'll hunt one or two down for you :)

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.

Robopon Sun Version Save Problem


Your battery needs to be changed. (Or you need to buy a new copy.)
Changing the battery may be dangerous to your game and will certainly delete whatever saved files you had but if you are successful you can save again and won't have this problem until the new battery dies.
Mind the direction of the battery when you replace it as well as the battery type. (As it may change from game to game/country to country.)

No start/pause menu on Pokemon Diamond?


you have to press X to open the menu, but if you select options on the X menu select the control - X=Start so you can press X or start to open the menu.
