I know this is slightly off topic, but anyway.
Apparently the battery which holds your save can run out in the older games, causing the saved game to disappear and make it impossible to save. My question is, for how long will the batteries last in my Sapphire and Ruby games, approximately? And, when were these batteries replaced with flash memory? In FR/LG?

Decided I wanted to check out my old Silver team, and to my horror, the battery had died.
The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time is a mediocre game.

the battery in RSE doesnt affect your save state any more. you can play even if the battery is dead.

Oh sweet, so they use flash memory like the later games?

The DS games and later use flash-based game cards. Game Boy Advance and earlier use ROM cartridges, with a battery to power the ability to save and run the clock. If your battery is dead, you can still play the game, but you can't save, nor will your berries grow.
