Mmhm. Well.
I doubt this makes sense, but...I was playing my Fire Red about two second ago. My Togepi used Metronome. It used Ice Beam, which in turn froze the enemy Pikachu. I was like, "YAY!". So I took a chance, and used Metro again.

...

"Togepi used Thunder Wave!"
-animation effect-
-buzzing sound-
-game locks up-
Me: "What the hell...?"
Me: -turns gba off, then back on. Goes through proceedings, and goes to the opening menu wheeeennn....-
Game: "The save data was corrupted. The save data was deleted." (Or something like that)
Me: OAO WTF!? What just happened?!
Me: -turn off, restart...gets same message.-
Me: OAO'' Oh...Oh crap.

Ooooh....nasty.

Still, how's this for annoying???(not GBA, but still0

On Platinum, i had a Shiny Jolly Sneasel

I just got it to 252atk/252spe/4hp
And my game froze!!!!!!

And that's why i don't play DS games anymore.

Hmm, interesting. The game freezing happens with RS and Thunderbolt and Thunder some times, but I haven't heard about FRLG and Thunderwave.

Yeah, I've heard about the RS thing, but haven't heard about it in FRLG. It's never happened to me, but I have "lost" my save file before. If you haven't started a new game, try turning on the game once again and seeing if it's still there. My Sapphire told me that the save file was deleted, and I freaked out like you wouldn't believe. At the time, my Sapphire was storage, and it had Pokemon that were at least three years old, so you can only imagine. After a while of screaming and crying, I turned it back on to see if my eyes had decieved me, and there was my file. I never took it for granted after that incident. I think I started saving every five steps...

Ouch! What a bummer! Jeez, this sort of thing happens to GBA/DS games a lot, huh?

For instance; on my Diamond, I hadn't played for ages after restarting my game. I decided to get up to the Elite Four, because I was extremely bored and I was only up to the, what... 6th gym? Anyway, I trained my Torterra, Infernape and my Staraptor like crazy and got them both up to about lv. 60, which was, IMO, enough to beat Cynthia. So I get to Victory Road, spend about half an hour fighting my way through that, then I get through the tunnel, into the Pokemon League and start the battle with Aaron, and guess what? MY GAME FREEZES. It happens all the time on my Final Fantasy 3 as well. Argh... :(

Lol, one of my friends tried to do that once. I'm glad I did now. :P

This is definitely NOT funny... DX
I wouldn't want to restart a Pokemon Game.

It seems that a certain combination of moves resulted in the deletion of the all th data of the game; yeah, i usually make crazy theories like that. XD

Dang, that really sucks! My games never seem to have a problem except if I do try to glitch the game on purpose but i never have. lol Have fun starting a new game..

Two words: GG

Lmfao that sucks though. Action replay is kinda dangerous to mess around with. That's why I just use a flash cart with sav files.

Togepi used thunder wave on the cartridge.

The only logical answer.

My leafgreen kept on freezing and I was training my weedle to level 9, let it evolve, then level up once and let it evolve. I got it to level 9 and the game froze. I got really frustrated because I didn't save. Next day I got him to level 10 and got a beedrill (Yes I kept on saving after every battle) and played through the story. I got to the SS Anne and when I got to the part where you battle Gary, it froze and froze, over and over, time after time, repeating and repeating, get the idea? So I took it back to Gamestop and exchanged it for my Firered and I haven't had any problems with it.

I had beaten the league and saved and when i turned it on I was standing near the entrance of the league and had to battle all over again.

When I was playing Platinum yesterday, for kicks I decided to ride around in Jubilife. I spazzed out on the D-Pad and my game froze for several seconds (to my surprise) and the screen went white, which completely locked up the game. Since I had saved before doing it, I restarted the game, and an entire portion of Jubilife was in an unwalkable void (which completely surprised me, as the void isn't supposed to be accessible in Platinum, much less without doing anything). Leaving to Route 204 and coming back in fixed the problems.

I know that was Gen IV, but it still applies (somewhat).

This.

It really is a coincidence that an electric attack managed to trigger it somehow.. xD;

Sucks that you lost your game file, though. D: Really.

It's so weird, though.. I always read posts/stories about how that happened to people during game play so randomly, and to quite a few people who have played the games. Yet out of my 12 years of Pokemon playing, I've never had that happen once.. >_>; not even a lock up without file corruption. ..of course I probably just jinxed myself, but yeah. Weird stuff. x_x;

Haha, It would have made the most sense when he FROZE the other pokemon

That happened to me once!

I had just gotten back from the pokemon 10th birthday celebration (best day of my LIFE!!) and I played one of the games I got loaded up with awesome pokemon (happened to be the one I had celebi on) and 'poof' it all goes away.

Like any ten year old, I go to my mom and say, 'mom, my game went away, can you fix it?'

Sorry buddy ):

At the time, my Sapphire was storage, and it had Pokemon that were at least three years old, so you can only imagine.

Oh I know how that feels. My silver was like that, I had three beloved level 100s all my favorite pokemon from my very first Yellow game(one of which as Windy my pigeot, one of my three level 100s, and the very first pokemon I ever caught in any game) there as well as a full pokedex, and a 17 time elite four champion.

So a few years ago I think I was wanting to do some kind of trade, I had a special box full of trade duds, and I was crushed when I turned Silver on after a long time of not playing it to find only 'New Game" and "Options" staring at me. My many times restarted gold had already died before it, which I discovered on the way home from visiting my best friend at college. I had emailed my guy friend not knowing what it was and he told me was the save battery.

My silver was a different story, I had LOVED that game and all my pokemon in it. I think that is what took most of my will for Pokemon up until a couple years ago when I got DS and Pearl, and now when I have been getting back into Crystal.

It's strange to hear about this person's misfortune. My guy friend, the one whom I emailed when I had not known what was happening upon discovering my gold dead, told me in his response that it was a result of a faulty battery type or something of that kind, a problem that was corrected in Crystal on, which makes sense considering my crystal is still fine today as is the rest of my games including actually my original three games. Gold and Silver might have been the only culprits.

Silversmearglesplatter here was very very lucky to have discovered his game to have been fine after freaking out. I am jealous. And as for the topic starter that is really rotten luck, I feel you as I remember my silver. :(

Pirated cartridges are known for save problems and general weirdness. Do you have one? They're all over the used market.

That's true, especially after being in the emerald corrupt file thread I should have thought of that about this person. If your cartridge is used or was purchased online than there is a chance of it being pirated and thus unstable.

Ugh.
No, thank heavens this hasn't happened to me. I once came close in my Emerald (or was it Ruby?), but that was just a saved-while-battery-died thing.
Although... My Silver died. But the dying process was sped up by the fact that... Mmf...
It ended up in the washing machine.
I was furious. Though a few years later, I got Gold off a family friend, which still works.
Back on topic, I've never had this problem with FRLG. I've Action-Replay-Raped FireRed, and the only times it glitched was while I was actually using it, and it never deleted the save file.
