    yes, they can all be patched to be played on devices with no RTC support. You can do the following:

    - Download GBATA (http://www.gbadat.altervista.org/tools.htm). It has a RTC patching feature (Clock Fix tab) built-in. It is only for Ruby/Sapphire though. However it can also apply IPS patches. You can download "clock fix" IPS patches for the other pokemon games from here:

    http://bubbz.pocketheaven.com/?system=gba&section=patch

    and here

    http://www.advanscene.com/ (search for pokemon)

    Hope this helps.

    just fyi, Fire Red and Leaf Green don't have a RTC so no need to patch those.

    You're right larvi, my mistake. I've never played the Kanto games. I guess existing IPSs for FR/LG deal with the saving type, not really a problem unless he's using a very old flashcart.
