Ladies and gentlemen, Pokemon colleagues. A great loss has transpired tonight. The victim was me, and the loss? 91 hours, 21 minutes, 145 Pokemon, 16 badges...the list goes on. My Pokemon Silver froze up tonight, and when I turned it back on, my options were limited to two I didn't want to see for a while: Options and New Game. Now I'm not saying I haven't sharked this cart once in a while. You all know how long it takes to make them damn eggs hatch. But I'd give it all up to have my game back. I know I made a few mistakes in it, but I wasn't ready to start again. Those Pokemon weren't ready to die. Is there any way to recover the save game? I didn't start a new one yet, if that helps any. Any suggestions/help/sympathy for my Pokemon would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for reading.

Sorry?

Boy, those GS carts have their share of problems.

Well, this probably isn't the time you want to here this, but...now might be a good time to get one of these.

My condolences...

Mega Memory Card, eh? Sounds like a great deal. Damn me, I was gonna get one after Christmas too. Too bad it looks so much like the now-feared GameShark. No one has any idea if it's possible to somehow recover the data, huh? Oh well. I had to start over soon or later anyhow. Damn, that hurts. I'll have to add a RIP page to my site for my fallen buddies.

I moved your post over here because it's more likely the mad scientists might have an answer for you, if there is one.

There might be a byte someone that just needs to be bit...but I doubt it.

At any rate, I got my MegaMem card for just this reason. I would have nightmares thinking about poor Team Wiggly being vaporized.

Now I have them backed up on my Game Pak, the Mega Mem and Stadium. Hmmm...just to be sure, maybe I should put copies on my Red and Yellow carts, too...

I'm sorry for your loss. that happend with my blue cart brining my research to a screeching halt.

The metallic carts have their problems but can stand up to being dropped and popping form your gameboy from time to time. (er that sucked)

I did it! I finally found a spelling mistake in one of Mr. K's posts!

Well, all spelling mistakes aside, I've since started over this morning. I do have all my old movesets in an Excel spreadsheet. Now I just need to catch all the Pokemon and beat all the gyms again. Since I have to have this do-over, I think I'm gonna train some Pokemon I didn't train before. Maybe Beedrill or something. Thanks for everyone's support. Visit my site below. I'll be putting up a RIP page for all my Silver Pokemon in a few days.

You prolly don't wanna hear what I have to say, but when my Blue cart froze up (255 hours, 151 pkmn, tons of pokemon raised, level 90 sandslash, jolteon, etc), it freaked me out. I turned it off, then back on. NEW GAME-OPTIONS. Ack! I almost died that day. However, I quickly turned it off, thinking it was a mistake..and then I turned it on to find that..my game was back to normal. Everything was ok. Sweet, huh? I know it doesn't make ya feel any better Beetle, but it should be an inspirational story! Next time your Silver freezes, turn the bitch off! Either that or shark yer Pokemon. Eh. Sorry for yer loss.

Oh, and one time, my friend was using a Game Genie (ugh) and it wiggled as he was entering a code, and it deleted his save.
Game Genies suck.

Hey, I make typos all the time.

If you only noticed that one, you need to turn in your Red Correction Pen!

K, you just earned your ass a detention.

This time around you need to train an Arbok. The almighty Arbok will protect your game.
