    you probably forgot to apply the RTC patch to the pokemon game.

    Pokemon Fire Red does not have a RTC. Only Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald do. I forget the reason why it doesn't save though.

    well if it is the save file, it might need an SRAM patch instead.

    if all software methods are not working, it only leaves hardware. with that being said, it would be a dead battery in the cart.
