I recently got a copy of Pokemon Silver, changed the battery, and started playing it again. I wanna know if anyone else still has a real cartridge version of gold, silver, or crystal. And why do you still have it?

I wish I could find them, the only one of the gameboy games I can seem to find is Blue, which is annoying as Red is the one with my original save data still on them. As for Gold and Silver I can't find them either...
Check out my youtube channel or don't. whatever

I still have all the six carts from my early teens (all French versions) . A few months back I replaced their batteries, so now they are in perfect working condition :) .

Even though I haven't played them in ages, I still have silver and crystal on a shelf in my closet. I'm not sure if they still work but they're definitely there.

You wish it was this easy...

Yeah, I've still got my original Gold cartridge. I just turned it on, and my save's still there, so at least the battery's still working on it (for how much longer, though, is the question).

I have all three of mine. I collect the main series games, so if I was missing one, I'd throw a fit. I recently had my Silver's battery replaced since it died last year, and the other two are still in working order as well. :)

I recently bought a copy of Crystal version. So happy I did. Something about playing it on an emulator just never felt right. I did own a copy way back in the day, but I don't really remember what happened to it.

I have Crystal Version with a replaced battery, I had Gold Version with a replaced battery but I tried to replace the battery again to use that one for Crystal, and ended up breaking the tab that secures the battery because I was tinkering around changing the battery too much :\

I've had all three at some point, though.

I have Gold with a working save battery and Silver with...deadness. It originally had a dead battery and I tried to replace it but I somehow broke it and it does not work at all. I wish they lasted forever.
Gotta collect 'em all! (seriously, I'm trying.)

I have Silver but since I would not be great at replacing the internal battery, and don't know anyone who is, I can't play it right now but I will keep it in case the battery can get replaced safely

I still have my gold and my crystal game. Why? no idea, I can't get rid of them due for nostalgic reasons I guess. I don't play them anymore but can't throw them away yet either.

Nope, I don't have my Silver anymore :( I let a friend borrow it, since it was one of the games he'd never tried, and I wouldn't deny him the opportunity to try it, even though he'd probably seen me play it like a million times, since Pokemon was all the craze back then. I still had the other 3 generations to play in, so I didn't really mind not being able to access Johto for a while. However, that turned out to be a grave mistake. Turned out he lost it shortly after, and it hasn't been found yet (if it was ever even lost at all). The second generation is probably my favourite generation, and the generation of games I've played the most of next to Kanto (only because I'm counting the remakes as well), so I was absolutely devastated. Oh well, I would've probably ended up giving it away anyways, since I'd done the same thing with the rest of my GBA games, including Blue.

I still have my original Silver cartridge, but unfortunately I think one of my siblings erased my save file on it...

I still have my gold and crystal cardridges. I don't know if they are still working, but whatever. At least I got 250/251 in gold back in the days and also I have Soulsilver, so they can rest in peace. Yeah I don't want to fire them up to only realize, the battery has run dry xD

Well maybe some later time...
