My platinum game froze while it was saving. I still had the data but this had happened to my friend before and he lost his save data. Why did this happen?

Dupe question. Hide this, please :)
The thread is not the same. The question is more the the comment asking why i still had the data when my friend did not.

This has happened to me a couple times in my Pokemon Yellow and Pokemon Emerald. I think it could be that the game card slightly moved out of place by accident, which can result in the game freezing on the original DS (I don't know if it does the same on the DSi or 3DS. I haven't tested that out before). As well, there may be slight damage on the card, but if it saves perfectly fine the next bunch of times, I could possibly rule out any damage. I know for my Emerald, I would blow on the inside if it froze and it would work again, so maybe doing that to remove any possible dust off the game might help?
