Question for Pokemon Blue


I don't know what happened to my game!! One night I was playing my gameboy( I was using an AC Adaptor).

I just trained my Blastoise and Raichu to level 100.

I turned my gameboy off and went to sleep, at 2:00 I woke up to a burning smell, I looked at my gameboy and on the back in the battery pack was battery fluids melted all on the back of my gameboy!!!!!

I unplugged my gameboy and cleanead it out, I took the game out and was careful not to get water in my gameboy.

The next day I played my Blue version again but it didn't have CONTINUE, all it had was NEW GAME and OPTION!!!

I thought that maybe the battery explosion might have ruined my saved game. So, I started a new game and played for a while. I saved my game and went to eat.

When I came back to play it still didn't have CONTINUE!!!! I reset it, started a new game with a new starter Pokemon saved it and turned it off. I turned it back on and it had Continue.

I played for a while, saved it and went to get ready for bed. I came back and turned it on and it didn't have CONTINUE!!!!!

So, every time I save it has CONTINUE once and then it's gone. There's no glitches in the game, it works fine, it just won't let me save.

My gameboy isn't damaged, it works like its brand new. I used the game in my Gameboy Advance but it still won't continue.

Now, for the question. WHAT'S WRONG WITH MY GAME???


A word of advice for people with an AC Adaptor: DON'T I repeat DON'T leave your batteries in your gameboy when there's and AC Adaptor plugged into your gameboy and the wall.

You will eventually have a battery explosion.

Really!Same thing happened exept my batteries never exploded.

You know the glitch called Missingno,if you destroy the glitched chips inside like my friend did your file gets deleted about every 5 minutes.Now,the way my Pokemon Blue did that is extremely different than yours.I encountered the Pokemon Missingno and kept it in my party for about 1 year.

One day,I switched on my Gameboy and my file was gone and every time I made a new file it got deleted about every 5 minutes.And what's even stranger is that my file on Pokemon Red never got deleted when I caught Missingno and kept it now for over 3 years!The saving glitch as far as I know only is in Pokemon Blue.Listen up folks,buy Pokemon games,but not Pokemon Blue,Red's less glitched.I have both versions,I know..................

Alright I called up the gaming place and this is what they told me when it happened to me.

There is some sort of chip that handles the saving and continues, and it is easily damaged with anything, even old age.

The only thing I could do was take it to a game place and didn't tell them it was broken.

I traded it in and bought another used one. I know it sucks, but I went through it too. Sorry,

I just picked up blue version to find out that it doesn't save. I went to go change the battery but found out that there was. I battery inside and that one of the brackets were missing. Does anyone know where to get a replacement bracket?

Well, the liquid of the battery must have leaked inside the cartridge, it happened to me before, and there is a way to fix it: open up the cartridge, change the circular battery inside with a new one, if the store guy doesn't know the size, just keep the battery and show the store clerk. Hope I helped.

What you have experienced is something my friend has experienced. There is a time where the game chip, Missingno, will either break, corrupt, or delete. Since Missingno contains Pokemon and Save controls, it can mess-up your game when caught. Hence I said SAVE CONTROLS. But Missingno, my friend, has been underestimated by many game players, perhaps you even. You see, when you shut off the game, leaving the AC Adapter in was foolish indeed, possibly because leaving the Adapter intact with the compounds of the springs of the GameBoy battery holder wouls sustain a light charge, even after the power is cut. Maybe the charge was incompatible with the Adapter, thus resulting in an acidical or electrical burn that ate through the + and - sides of the Adapter even more quickly than usual. With the charge and the game pak still loaded, the game could still have been on to some degree. When the battery blasted, the game would be sent a strong surge of too much energy, then not enough energy. That's like running out in 0 degree weather then suddenly running into a sauna; there is too much of an energy change, therefore not allowing time to adapt. This could very well have blasted the chip in your game. Missingno can do more than mess-up and delete your game files, you know. It can delete the game Save controls as well, since it is responsible for that. The exact same thing you are going through is what my friend went through. If you want to fix it, consult to your GameBoy Manuel and it should give you the Nintendo Hotline number for cheats and repairing. Or, try going to GameStop or EB's. Whatever you do, don't try to fix it yourself, for many reasons.

Your batteries had to be rechargable, right.

You charged them too much so it pushed power through your gameboy and fried your game.

I think.

Also I forgot to tell you there was a little round piece in the top of your game, it problably fried that.

It's simple to much electricity was going into the pack even if you shut off the game it would hav over powered the pack causing the electricity to explode causing acid to seep through your gameboy and into the game, then before the acid dried it must have fried missingo.

Memory cartrage and data so you can't save and the only way to be able to save the game is to catch missingo.

Or have some one transfer him to you and them you must save you game emediatly then relese him so you can save the game without it earasing you game because there will be a ++M++ that has not been toutched by acid

Hint:Make sure to try the ++M++ cheat to make sure he got to cinnabars east coast with out harm.

My friend, If my earlier answer is not the problem, I know what is.

How LONG have you had the game? After all, Blue Version came out first in 1995, so if you bought it back then, my solution here is sure to work.

Did you know that all of the earlier games for Game Boy have memory that is powered by a little battery? Well, you know already that there is a problem with Missingno, that's for sure, but the memory battery is controlled by Missingno. You also know that the game memory is kept and stored by Missingno. I suppose the memory battery in your game died, but it's not quite that simple. You see, my sissy's boyfriend is hugely knowledgable about electronics. When I stated your problem to him, he said that all of the Game Boy and Game Boy Color games have memory batteries that help to keep the game memory and Save files.Yes, I was nice enough to tell your problem to him. Anywho, he said that the batteries die within 5 years. So, if you have had your Blue Version for 5 or more years, that is a likely problem. Now see, I think his response is legitimate, because when you shut off the Game Boy with no Save data on the game, then the battery stops using power, I guess. Note how you turn on the game once and you have Continue as an option, but the next time you don't. You sucked the power that the battery had just recovered inorder to keep your game on, and once the data was lost, the battery stopped using power and started recharging a little bit, just enough to hold another hour or so of game data. It's like Game Boy batteries; when you shut the Game Boy off for a while, the batteries recharge slightly.

I think that the memory battery reacted to the essense of of battery acid, thus causing a surge that drained the memory batteries power my a large amount. Don't forget this.

All you need is jewelry piers, electrical tape. And a 2025 watch battery. Just be careful not to damage anything else inside the cartridge. I has to do this to my crystal version recently and now holds a saved file
