Actually, the older games didnt save using a flash chip, they actually didnt save at all, the game had to be kept on at all times, this was done by a battery, which of course, will run out one day, tl;dr: the moment the battery dies, the game file dies with it, it means that without uploading your save file somehow, you cannot change the battery without deleting your file.

The batteries in gold and silver last for about ten years, the batteries in red and blue last for about fifteen years, the battery life of red and blue is longer than gold and silver (and RSE's) because of the clock function.

The newer games dont need a battery because there is a clock built into the system, then you save, data about the time is also saved, then you turn on again, the game simply makes the changes based on how long it was off.
