Your game is basically messed up. My blue version did the same thing and it's been like that for 6ish years now.

Not that I know of. If you really wanted to play Silver, I would reccomend going somewhere where they have used games and looking for one.

Ah yes, the imfamous battery death.

Your games internal batteries have died, so they cannot hold their save files anymore. I managed to restore my Gold's battery by leaving the game in my SP, on a new file (you need to make your name and everything and get to the overworld map) and stick it in the charger for about 3 or 4 days. You must leave the game on.

For your game? Or for your SP?

I just left my game on at the beginning of the game, saved, and put the charger on my SP, and let it sit for 3 days. I turned it off, waited 10 minutes, and the file was still there. Basically you just keep your SP charged, when attached to a charger the SP has an infinite amount of energy.

I wouldn't worry about it happening to your other games too much. It only happened to one of mine, and it was pretty old to begin with.

Happened to my Silver version. I think it depends how much you played them. I played Silver a lot less than Gold and Crystal, and Silver was the first to go. I'm pretty sure the games from Ruby/Sapphire onwards are alright, but it's Gold, Silver and Crystal that have the problems.

My friend tried that, but he said it didn't work. I'm going to give it a try though, I don't want to lose my Celebi if it can be helped =(

Hmm, that sounds really convincing. I should try that!!

Oh yeah, it seems if your game freezes then you will have to reset it to a new file again and save it. When it freezes, the battery inside the game stops recharging.

Your game is gone.
Why are people entertaining the idea of saving it??

You can't save the save files you lost, but you can make it so you can save again without the need to open your game up.
