FRLG though...I feel bad for people trying to complete they're Pokedex back then on FRLG, considering you can't evolve Eevee into Umbreon or Espeon there, and without a friend or yourself to trade with, you were screwed over. I understand the reasons they didn't add a clock, trying to stay authentic with being a remake of a game that didn't have a time feature, but with the changes made in generation II with two evolutions that required a certain time, it should have been added. This is part of the reason I don't like FRLG as a remake. It stuck to RG way too strictly in this aspect.
Yeah I was kinda sad there was no proper time system in 3rd Gen, especially given how hard it is to evolve Eevee into Umbreon or Espeon. I understand that with FR/LG they were trying to keep to the roots of the original games but it wouldn't have hurt to have added time in. It really screwed over FR/LG players trying to complete the Pokedex yet had no-one to trade with.

At least Game Freak learned their lesson and re-implemented time in 4th Gen, but made it better.
