    Default Ruby & Sapphire won't save.

    I was wondering if anybody could help me? I have Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire, but when I save the game, turn it off and turn it back on it says the game has been deleted! They played perfectly for a few years then this started. I would appreciate any help.

The great dragon was hurled down―that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him.

    Perhaps the internal battery died? I hear this happened to GSC as well.

    That might be it. But I also have Gold, Silver, and Crystal versions that are older, but they still work perfectly. What are the other side affects of the internal battery dieing?

    My RBY are older than GSC and they work, but Gen II's dead. It's just the luck of the draw.

    Hax. It corrupted some game of blue that I found to the point where it can't even be played.

    It could be a hack, my Ruby is messed up pretty bad. What happens is that during the start, these gray lines appear across the screen and the GameBoy Advance emits a high-pitched squealing noise.

    Have you been using any hacks/Gameshark/AR?
    They might have screwed your game over.
    This happened to my emulated Sapphire game after imputing one too many bad AR codes and the bad eggs were all over the place.

    No, I've never hacked any of my games. I did get these games off eBay.

    So they were used? They may have been hacked by the previous owner.
    If they weren't, then the problem may be the internal battery. I've never heard of that causing the game to emit the bugged out screeches though.

    I would just replace the battery and see what happens. I've done this with my silver and yellow, its really simple and cheap so you wouldn't waste a lot of money if it doesn't work. All you need is some pliers or tweezers, tape (electric tape preferably), exacto knife or some thin blade, some paper and a replacement battery (the model number you need will be listed on the old battery).

    How to go about replacing the battery...


    Also, if your game displays the "Internal battery has run dry" message, I think this has something to do with the berry glitch, I remember Nintendo having a patch for this at Gamestops some time ago.

    This is kind of weird considering Nintendo themselves say if the battery died in RS that the game save should be fine since it only controls the clock.

    To put it simply I read that Nintendo only used save batteries in their first few years of GBA games and then scrapped it all together and went with other methods of save.

    Though with RS I wouldn't know if there was a batch that actually ran a battery off a save. Though I always thought that all RS batteries ran clock only and the actual save ran off flash.

    I'm confused now.

    The fact you got it off ebay may be a problem. There's alot of fakes on ebay and those do run off save batteries.

    Someone posted this around on a few forums I'm on so I suggest looking at this.

    Here's a closer look.
    http://s21.photobucket.com/albums/b278/akadewboy/GBA%20Save%20Types/?action=view&current=FLASHwithclock.jpg

    Compare the inside of your cart to these.

    You know part of me thinks that flash saves can die over time aswell.

    I'm not familiar with flash however.

    So yeah compare the insides to the pictures up and see whether they're legit. Change the battery to see if that works. If all that fails then you may need to buy new copies I'm afraid.

    Sorry if I'm no help.

    One question: What's the color of the cartridges?

    Cause if they're not blue or red, then, you've got yourself a pirated version.

    Oh shoot, you're right. The cartridges are gray. Well, thanks. At least now I know what's wrong with them.

    One other thing to check to is does the label have the Nintendo Seal? I bought a Ruby that did this and it looked completely legit but didn't have the Nintendo Seal. I think I outted that seller but I don't remember.
