Why does this game need an internal battery to keep it's save state?

  1. I heard that this game needs the battery to keep it's save state intact. I thought this game was based off of flash memory, so why does it need a battery to keep it running?

  1. I think it's because when this game originally came out, Flash Memory wasn't cheap enough or didn't hold enough information to be used.

  1. Think of the game as a clock, when power is removed it resets, hence the save delete, so just remove the beattery from the cartridge and go to a store that cells the specific watch battery and replace it
