For the last few days i've been trying to buy a Pokémon Silver but i had no luck since non of the ones i could find could save. So i bought one for the hell of it and was happy that at least my other games worked fine. So instead of playing Silver i decided to check on my Pokémon Red for the heck of it and then i saw this.
 Yes indeed it just lost its memory battery deleting all my data and is now unable to save any new data like my Silver does. And thus my old pal died along with my first official Mew. .R.I.P. Luckily my main team and strongest Pokémon where all moved to Pokémon Gold some 5 years ago. But i fear those Pokémon will be gone too when the battery fails within 5 years or so. So i decided to upload photo's of my strongest Pokémon including my shiny Ursaring and Raticate. Please keep in mind that i just went the lazy way and decided not to do all the stats of every Pokemon i own.
That's pretty much it, many Pokémon you see here are from the previous game, Red. Celebi was from a cheat and so are the Mews on this game (the Pokémon red glitch). All these Pokémon where trained and it took about 700+ hours to do so, I had so much fun on this game. Not only was it fun as hell it was also a freak of technology since i've been able to find about 16 shiny Pokémon on this game. I hope its never going to deletes its data and die on me too :(

@cfatalis: My DIY skills are horrid and that still would not fix the fact that i just lost my 15+ year old save file.
 
Also i too have many roms on my R4. but it just isn't the same.

@cfatalis: Yeah, but the save was more of my older brother than mine, we'd to share it becouse we only had one game and one gameboy

@Kuma_From_Argentina: yeah i had that problem, My GF and I exactly shared in gaming objects (when we are like 10? until 15)
1x memory card
2x gamepad
1xPS1 (then PS2)
1x PC( yes you can blame my porn hidding SKILLZ come from this) 
2x gameboy (then GBA)
1x pokemon catridge (oh god? why? my parent can buy two gameboy but not two catridge?, she did get her cartridge when crystal came out)
 
you can imagine how much blood is spilled whenever i want to play with my console back then
 
@Kelleth:
well at least it could save again

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
 
This reminds me of my cousins Pokemon Red.  All he needed was a Tauros to complete the Dex, then his game deleted itself.  It scared him for life!

I know they run out eventually but I've never actually seen it happen. Saying that, I lost my old Pokémon games a long time ago, so I lost everything anyway. 
 
But yeah, all I can suggest if finding a way to keep backups of your saves on your PC from now on, other than that there isn't much you can do unfortunately. 
 
Sorry for your loss!

@Newten:  Thank you for the advice, I guess i could always turn to my R4 but its still not the same, I guess i can get around that annoying Y button but the reason i like the old games is because how they feel when you holding the gameboy. So i guess i can replace the batteries like Cfattalis mentioned. Even though i'll lose my save files then (then again only Gold really matters since Turtoise!! and Dugtrouble!! are on that file)
