This was made in response to a post I saw that said the batteries of Pokemon Red, Blue, and Yellow Versions would die soon. It will work for Gold, Silver, and Crystal Versions also. Please let me know how it worked for you in the comments.

My Red Version is still on my original game that I started way back in 1998 and my pokedex is complete at 151.

Pictured: MFW my battery finally dies and my game is deleted. It almost feels like the death of a lifelong friend.
#35 to #29 - anon (03/12/2012) [-]
get blue or yellow, trade your best like mew before taking out the battery, replace battery, retrade pokemon, enjoy. 151 is an accomplishment, good job man
#79 to #35 - anon (03/12/2012) [-]
thats a decent idea, but 3 things

1. you need to buy a whole new gameboy and game, just to trade over some pokemon.

2. you also have to have a link cable, which i assume is not the easiest thing to acquire.

3. all of this involves money, and spending more for uneccessary reasons.

although i do agree that the memories/nostalgia that comes with the catching of all pokemon in said game, is something you wanna try keeping, but replacing the battery and doing it all over again will give you something to do; relive old memories?

Good thing I found that link cable to be a worthy investment.
User avatar #173 to #159 - melcor (03/12/2012) [-]
A link cable is one of the best investments in the world!
#176 to #173 - lepiratemonkey (03/12/2012) [-]
Hell yeah it is. It just so happens that mine can link up to 4 at once.
#178 to #176 - melcor (03/12/2012) [-]
I think I got the same type cable :)
#181 to #178 - lepiratemonkey (03/12/2012) [-]
My first internet!
#100 to #79 - anon (03/12/2012) [-]
surely 1 can be fixed by a friend with the game and then all you got left is getting a link cable

Those things had batteries in them? 0_o
User avatar #142 to #43 - glasstrampoline (03/12/2012) [-]
Yep, they had batteries all right, and they lasted for four years. In other words, if that battery is not replaced, or your Pokemon are not migrated to a later version in four years, they are dead. All of them.

it also allows saves. I have a gold version that wont save anything when you turn it off...im thinking I might fix it tomorrow.
User avatar #49 to #47 - greeet (03/12/2012) [-]
I had the same exact problem. made me so sad. I now have hope
User avatar #56 to #47 - Gralla (03/12/2012) [-]
Ohhhh, **** . So that's why my Gold version would never save my progress. It all makes sense now! That was really pissing me off.

Pokemon yellow needs a CR1616 battery, not a CR2025 like the others

They're actually for the "save"-functions in games, technically keeping the game on constantly.

or just simply go here
You need to login to view this link

you can play pokemon here, its basically just like playing on a gameboy, if u dont have a gameboy this is perfect for you. and it never runs out of battery!
User avatar #117 to #109 - michellemc (03/12/2012) [-]
Or, use an emulator...
User avatar #118 to #117 - schwarzenschwanz (03/12/2012) [-]
just trying to help people out... no need for you to act like a prick

User avatar #189 to #186 - schwarzenschwanz (03/12/2012) [-]
no, just sick of immature kids acting rude on here. all i did was give a suggestion, how immature do you have to be to try and start something over the internet. im done with the little kids on here, fighting with them is the most pointless thing i could possibly do. so i acted mature and didnt respond like an immature little **** .
User avatar #190 to #189 - michellemc (03/12/2012) [-]
I'm sorry that you misread my comment. It's the internet, you can't really understand a tone of voice or any of those sorts on here. "Or, use an emulator", wasn't meant to be rude and you got all flustered. Call me immature all you want, but you're the one who "started something over the internet" and made something pointless into something more, which is kinda hypercritical. :)
User avatar #194 to #190 - schwarzenschwanz (03/13/2012) [-]
read my comment. i didnt start anything. all i said in response to your snobby comment was "just trying to help people out... no need for you to act like a prick" in nooo way could that have "started anything" so before anything can "start" like you want it to do to your immaturity, im going to "end" "it"..... "ok" """""""""""""""""""""""""""""
User avatar #195 to #194 - michellemc (03/13/2012) [-]
LOL. Okay then. :)
User avatar #196 to #195 - schwarzenschwanz (03/13/2012) [-]
btw.. are you a girl? you sure do communicate like one.
User avatar #197 to #196 - michellemc (03/13/2012) [-]
I thought we were done here. :) Speaking of immaturity, thumb me down more bro? inb4 more ********* , this stuff is great.
User avatar #201 to #197 - schwarzenschwanz (03/13/2012) [-]
we are done.. dumbass. notice how i didnt try to aggravate you anymore.. grow up. and stop putting smiley faces, are you 10 years old? who the **** puts smiley faces at the end of all their comments? all i asked you was are you a girl? you wanna talk about maturity? knowing when enough is enough. i asked you a question, you responded with a child like response. typical, since all of you comments resemble that of a 10 year old. keep flattering yourself, if it helps you sleep at night be my guest!
User avatar #202 to #201 - michellemc (03/14/2012) [-]
********* engaged! :) You realize you're not making yourself look much better, huh? We're both being hypocrites and you think it's only me who's contributing to anything here. You, sir, have given me epic lol's - thanks (and I'm not being sarcastic, you can't really show the true emotion of your words online)!
User avatar #203 to #202 - schwarzenschwanz (03/14/2012) [-]
ok :) if thats how you feel :) then fine :) i dont care smiley face it doesnt even bother me semi colon half circle you're so clever how you act like you're not mad :) but really you are :) and you're just guna say this gave you lols kuz you're a 13 year old little girl with responses that ive been hearing for too many years :) come up with something original :) or dont reply at all, you're embarrassing yourself :) oh and did i mention smiley face? :)
User avatar #204 to #203 - michellemc (03/14/2012) [-]
I'm only "embarrassing" myself infront of one person - you. And, if it doesn't bother you, why vote down everything and then continue to rage about the only thing you could find that bothers you about me- ":)"? You really just need to chill, I'm not actually kidding when I say I'm not bothered by this. My friends and I are actually loling pretty hard about how worked up someone can get over the internet... no "argument" is real here. And, also, funny how I'm "13" suddenly, huh? Assuming someone is little like that just proves you're fishing for things to insult someone when it's really doing anything then showing your rage more. I'm going to stop replying now, because you've said many times that "we are done" yet every time I reply and agree and tell you thanks for the happy lol's that were had, you comment and try to "insult" me more.. which is going to become a never-ending paradox of pointless "fighting" on the internet.

Go to 4chan and debate about religion or politics if you wanna see some real arguments happen, those things get pretty wild.

Have a good life, sir!

HAHAHAHAH this just became the funniest conversation ever. and now we're friends.

"No way that could have started anything"
>Implying calling someone a prick for making a suggestion similar to yours isn't starting anything.
User avatar #149 to #109 - beblackat (03/12/2012) [-]
thank you so much!

Will it save progress if I clear browsing history?
User avatar #188 to #158 - schwarzenschwanz (03/12/2012) [-]
probably, just go incognito or something so you never have to clear browsing, if you have google chrome. but why dont you start a game and before you do anything save it, clear history, then come back so if it does clear your progress it wont be a big deal.
User avatar #55 - Mr Ronok (03/12/2012) [-]
or you can spend 30 seconds and find a decent emulator

thank you for this. because I have no belief in my reliability I will transfer them first but I may be able to save red this way

Prevent your old saves from being lost:

If you mess this up even a little you'll still lose your saves.
You'll need two wires and that tape.

1) Before you break the welding in picture 6, take the two wires and tape one to each flat side of the NEW battery. Tape them off center so when you slide it in the contacts touch the batter not the tape.

2) Tape the lose ends of the wires to the solder points on the outer edges of the bars that go above and below the battery. (the melted metal bulbs where the bars touch the circuit board) Be sure you've got your + and - correctly placed.

3)Proceed to remove the old and insert the new battery following the instructions (make sure the tape you put on the new battery doesn't block the connector bars) until you reach the 11th picture.

4) As you "Make it fit snuggly" remove the wires from the battery (as long as the bars are touching the battery properly you don't have to remove the extra tape). Make sure the bars are touching the battery properly as you remove the wires... this is the point you'll lose your saves if you're doing it wrong!)

5) Proceed taping the battery into place via the instructions given in the 11th picture.

6) Remove the wires and tape from the solder points. And finish reassembling the game via the above instructions.

7) Enjoy another 12 years with the same team you've had for the first 12.

I double commented this...I typed the wrong thing above, originaly it said tape the wires after you break the welding.. that needs to be done BEFORE you break the welding.

NO$GBA works good enough for me if you can find an up to date version.
been playing pearl on it can't find a good black or white rom thou.
User avatar #24 - darksquirel (03/11/2012) [-]
I don't get what the tape is for, if the battery is too thin use a CR2032 which is 3.2 mm instead of the 2.5 mm of a CR2025
User avatar #25 to #24 - scottmc (03/11/2012) [-]
The tape holds the battery to the connectors. The original batteries were welded in place. Instead of the tape, you could solder the new one on, but the electric tape works just as well. Without anything holding it on, the battery would just fall loose... probably before you even get to Pewter City.

when i do mine, ill solder them like they were from the factory, it is gonna take a whole night for mine, I have red, blue, yellow, gold, silver, and ruby.

User avatar #27 to #26 - scottmc (03/12/2012) [-]
I'm not familiar with the GBA ones. Please let me know how it works.
User avatar #28 to #27 - darksquirel (03/12/2012) [-]
should be the same, I think i even have an easier way to get the screw out

User avatar #32 to #28 - protroller (03/12/2012) [-]
might wanna use a heat sink just in case. dont wanna fry any components
User avatar #185 to #32 - darksquirel (03/12/2012) [-]
dont worry I can solder like a pro, it just needs a bit to keep it from shaking out
#3 - robinka (03/11/2012) [-]
