None of my cartridges from any Generation have ever died on me. XD I count myself as supremely lucky.

I might have put like 50 hours on my Crystal. I bought it a month before I joined PC. Then it died a couple of months after that. And on my gold I could of had like 200 but I stopped playing it for a while then I noticed it died.

I'd say about 200 hours altogether.
I restarted my game many times when I was younger, so I can't say that estimate is very accurate. XD

Last I checked all 6 of my Gen I/II carts are still going, but I migrated everything from the metal carts to Pokemon Stadium 2 to be a little safer. I have approaching 200 hours on Crystal, but I have restarted Gold and Silver multiple times so I don't know the total there. Same with RBY, started all of those multiple times, and also played them on double speed via PS2 a lot, so their times are pretty wrong now.

I've reset my Silver Version so many times that it's hard to say for sure how much time I spent on it in all, though I guess, though it had to be well over 800 hours (the amount of time I've spent on Pearl). It hasn't died yet and I hope it won't. I have so many precious Pokemon on there including my Umbreon, Tyranitar, Mew, and Celebi (none of which were hacked, though the later two were 'glitched'). I guess, to be on the safe side, I should clone my precious Pokemon and have some back-ups stored in my Pokemon Stadium 2 N64 Box. Of course, if my save file did vanish and I replaced the internal battery, I would have to capture at least 150 Pokemon before I could withdraw them...

I had somewhere around 200. I almost had all 251 pokemon too. I think I was missing like 10. I was sooo upset when my cartridge died because of that.

I think it was about 600-800 hours. It was a long time ago, so I can't remember that well.

My red is still working. I played it and was like, Wow, those games have come far.

My yellow stopped working after Pokemon Stadium malfunctioned while I was uploading some Pokemon.

My gold is currently MIA.

My Gold and Crystal versions died two years ago. I had them both since their released and played them almost non-stop so it's no surprise there.

I'm up to 900 hours on crystal. At 550 I had to replace my internal battery. I backed it on the cp first though re-wrote the save.

you guys should invest in a monster brain. I use it to keep all my saves safe, and if the batteries ever go out, you just replace them and you can get your file back.

My longest was Gold at 450 and it never died on me as a matter of fact my only game to have a internal battery die was Yellow which stopped working at 45-50.
