    Hey.
    I found my old copy of Pokemon Yellow today and I tried to play it and its really glitched up. Most of the time it wont start or it flashes random colours. Is there a way to fix it? I dont know why it does that. I remember playing through it last year and everything was fine.
    Also my character stops following Oak after I enter his Lab.

    Clean the contacts of the cart, that should fix most of the issues.
    If it doesn't fix it then your ROM might be suffering from bit rot.

    I already cleaned it a bit. It might be too old. Well good thing the gen 1 Pokemon games are cheap like dirt over here. I seriously had 6 copys of Pokemon blue a couple years ago. I'll search for a new one on the next fleamarket

    Maybe is it damaged inside?

    Did it get water damage or something?

    I had a Silver cart that had similar issues.

    Just to rule out the possibility of the console itself being bad, do those other games you have in the picture work fine?

    get a new battery and you will be able to save again.
    you can also put a holder for smaller batteries and making the proccess of changing them later easier (and smaller batteries are cheaper)
    i had a youtube video of a guy doing that mod, if you want me to find it, write on my profile and i will link it there

    In the start sequence the pikachu was red the whole time and then it just got black and red.
    Im not kidding. Everytime i start it the sequence is different

    Yep all of them work fine. I tried it on my Gameboy classic, pocket and colour too all of them had the same problem.
    Some months ago i could play it to the first gym, but most of the time my save dissapeared and I just stopped playing it, but since then I cant progress at all.

    Sounds like your save RAM battery is dead, in addition to whatever is going on with the cart itself.

    Missingno raped my game lel.
    Yeah most of my old games have battery problems. The Pokemon Sapphire and my Wario Land both need a new battery. My Pokemon TGC game needs a new one too as far as I know, because most of the time the save dissapears.
