Default Gold/Crystal Help PLZ - They don't save!

Hello. :) As you can see I just joined, because I have a problem. Every year, I get back into the pokemon mood and dig out my gameboy to play Red/Blue/Yellow and then Gold/Silver/Crystal. I played through Red and everything was all fine, and then I went to Gold. Unfotunately, just about every time I tried to save, it didn't save. I figured, well, most of the poke games I got around the time they came out, so Gold is an old copy, so I figured it feel off the couch one too many times. I then grabbed Crystal, but the same thing happened. Luckily, my Silver version still works, but I found it odd that both my Gold and Crystal versions were having the same problem. Was their some sort of malfunction that I am not aware of? Is there anything I can do, like send them into Nintendo for replacements?

After a certain amount of time, the battery inside the game that looks after time events and saving runs dry, which means you won't be able to continue saved games anymore.
The only way to fix it is by replacing the battery, which you can do yourself or try and find some place that does it for you, I guess.

Oh, that sucks. How come it hasn't happened to my Silver version then? Or my Red version, which I know I've used at least twice as much as my Gold and Crystal versions.

Well Red version doesn't keep time, so presumably the battery lasts longer as it's only concerned with saving, though I'm not exactly sure.

As for why Silver still works, there's a theory that the amount of time you play for effects the battery life, as the battery recharges a little when it's used.

Oh, it has to do with the in-game clock. Alright, well thanks for the help.
