    It's for Supercards. It means RealTimeCheat.
    Basically, you can enable/disable cheat-codes ANYTIME in the game with a Supercard. I have one. I love it (:

    RTC is Real Time Clock referred to the clock more often than cheat

    Even a google search of GBA RTC 99% of the results are Real-Time Clock

    Some of the Megaman Battle Network games (not sure which ones, maybe all of them) use a clock.

    Not all of the GBA Pokemon games use a clock. Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald do, Fire Red and Leaf Green do not. I don't know about the others. There are patches for Ruby and Sapphire to enable time based events on flashcarts that don't have clocks. There is no patch for Emerald.
