Wikipedia says

The battery model is model CR2025, although a larger CR2032 fits as well and will last longer

go to a store and ask them about that type of battery, It looks like a watch battery but may be called something else.

In case you didn't know.

replacing the battery is easier said than done.

If you've read the thread about changing the battery you also know about the soldering and such. and not breaking the rabs

Just be careful not to hurt yourself or the game.

It would depend. The battery powers a memory chip in the cartridge which saves the data. If you take too long it would definitely lose data.

Also, when you get to cracking open the cartridge you'll run into issues. For the most part you need a screwdriver that can undo the Nintendo screw. But you might be able to get a reverse-torx screwdriver kit that can do it.
