    Hey, I have an Acekard 2.1 and a EZ flash 3in1.
    So since its impossible (from what ive found) to emulate an RTC function for pokemon emerald, ive decided to just play it without the RTC.
    Im playing it to get pokemon that arent available in platinum to transfer them to platinum!... i dont know if that is possible, but it would be nice if someone could tell me if it is! [​IMG]
    I read on wikipedia that emerald doesnt have night and day, so what is the RTC for?
    Does the daycare work without RTC?

    So i guess my questions are...
    1. Is pokemon emerald playable without the RTC?
    2. Can you still get all the pokemon without the RTC?
    3. What are the downsides of not having an RTC?
    4. Does the daycare work without RTC?
    5. Is it possible to transfer your pokemon from emerald to platinum with roms instead of the retail games.

    5: Yes, but only by using thing called "pokepatch" on the PLATINUM (not emerald) Rom - this makes the platinum to look into SRAM saves and be able read them like normal - normal pokemon cartridges use flash save space and pokemon games on DS try read that...

    Long story short, google a pokemon Ez 3in1 patch etc.
