so here's the funny part i had begun to trade from these two for the DEX and right around HG/SS came out i began to play these less, the Emerald which had been my original would read somethings saying about the internal battery has run dry...that the game would save but certain fuctions of the game say time wouldnt work...
other than that its tip top but i found out later that it only applies to the berry growing factor in my game..
it also affects being able to get latios/latias iirc
