The problem comes from the back-up battery unit inside your cart. The internal battery has run dry. If you have any soldering skills and the required special screw drivers, you can fix this with a newly purchased battery. Here:
They show you how to change the back-up battery in an SNES game but it's the same in a GBA cart.
Hope this helps,

How can i find ho-oh in pokemon fire red

The only way to obtain it in fire red is with a mystic ticket which was an event item, which you had to attend the pokemon rocks tour. Otherwise if you have or know someone with a gold or silver version for original gameboy you can trade from that. Preferably gold beccause you get him sooner in the game.

    Gold won't save

    The Silver/Gold/Crystal generation Pokemon Games all had cartridges that contained a built-in battery that runs theinternal clock, so that your game knows whether its day or night,Monday or Wednesday, etc. Anyway, I assume your battery has run out,and until replaced, the game will not save successfully.

    This site give instructions on how to replace the battery:

    Or you could just buy the game again, I would guess they are about $10 these days.
    Great game by the way.

    Hope that helps.

    How to get exotic pokemon

    Lugia and Ho-oh are game specific Pokemon. You can only get Lugia in Silver and Ho-oh in Gold. However, Articuno can be found in Cinnabar cave, on the very bottom of the cave. You have to push boulders to stop currents, then just surf over and capture Articuno. Deoxys is in the Sevii Islands on FireRed and LeafGreen versions of the game. Dragonite you have to evolve from Dratini/Dragonair, which you can find by fishing in Safari Zone.
