Glitch Emergency!

Glitch Emergency!

Someone please help! I need need immediate glitch help STAT! It all happened a few weeks ago. Everything was fine, I was training in Mt.Silver then left. As soon as I flew, instead of landing in the desired area, the game reseted and showed the "This game is only for Gameboy Color" message famous among hackers and cheaters. But I never used any cheating device ever! And the only glitch I performed was transferring a "Mew Glitch" Mew from Pokemon Blue about a year ago. But nothing strange ever happened since. I haven't done anything unusual. I was freaked out so I turned my game off and on. I was relieved to so that my save file was okay. But then things got worse. The game started freezing easier. And now I'm encountering that same message constantly! One time, it even had glitched colors like the Gold/Silver Coin Case glitch. Fortunetly, it was not permanent. But the glitches got worse and more often! Recently, I entered a town an my character dissapeared, then it show the Z animation like in battle battle but this was outside! Then the colors got glitchy and it showed a yellow text box with glitched dialog. Then of course, the same showed that "only for Gameboy Color" message again. I'm freaking out man!! I don't know how how to stop the glitches! They keep getting worse! I'm worried that my save file will be corrupted soon! That can't happen! My file is too precious! Especially now that I caught my very first shiny about two weeks ago. (shiny Tangla) What do I do!? Someone please help! I'm freaking out here! I can NOT lose my precious file! Somebody please, tell me what to do! Is it the system's fault or the game's? Do I switch systems? So far, I'm trying to buy another Crystal and a link cable to trade my special Pokemon in case something goes wrong. But how do I stop this glitch frenzy!? Do I send it to Nintendo? Do I trade my Pokemon and items and let my game die? What's causing this to happen and how do I fix it? I'm scared of losing my special Pokemon!

I suggest you buy another [new]gameboy first because as far as I know,if your gameboy is like old [more than a few years] then it should be corrupting because I had my gameboy for 4 years and it corrupted my file.Then trade all your good pokemons to your new gameboy with the new game.Then test out your newer versions and if it doesnt work perfectly,then you can always ask for a refund.
