SOURCE: Can't delete previous game to start/save a new on in Pokemon Diamond

okay you have to go to new game and press A and it would pop up some message that you already have a saved file so at the title screen where you see that pokemon dialga or whatever at that point press Up/start/B and it should say do you wish to delete the previous Pokemon diamond file and Press A to confirm. Hope that helps you

SOURCE: Gameboy Color Pokemon Games Not Saving?

I think the person above means the internal battery in the actual game, not in the gameboy itself.

It seems that there is no real fix for this.
Do a quick google search for some more info.

SOURCE: Pokemon Silver

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.

SOURCE: I cannot retrieve my saved game of Pokemon Emerald.

The problem probably occured when you turned off your Gameboy. When you save your game, it always asks you not to turn off the power. This could have corrupted your save file.

Another problem occurs when the battery that saves the file to the cartridge slips off its wires. This can only be repaired by sending the Game Pak to nintendo. If you've owned the Pak for more than 3 months, the fee will be $10.

The third and final problem occurs when you have played the Pak for too long. This time limit, approximately 200 hours of gameplay, seems to have an unfortunate effect on your Game Pak. I think it might be the amount of data that needs to be saved. What happens is the save screen goes away too quickly. The game needs to finish saving. The only way to solve this is too wait 10 seconds before turning off your Gameboy.

    Why wont the game save?


    What you need to do is take the cartridge and unscrew it and change the battery. When the battery dies, the file becomes corrupt and erases every time you turn it off and back on. Here is a guide to replace it: http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-replace-the-battery-in-a-pokemon-goldsilve/ If you aren't good with soldering, I would recommend just buy a new Pokemon Gold 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: http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-replace-the-battery-in-a-pokemon-goldsilve/

    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.
