    But if you mean if that the secret base that you gave your friend in thier games, I think your base would still be there regardless if you deleted your file.

    Sorry if I didn't answer your question correctly, lol.
    No, you gave a working answer.

    Also have their ever been Battle E-Cards for emerald that were released? I've got some for ruby, but I'm not sure about emerald.

    E-cards were discontinued in the US at the time of Emerald, so no. Only in Japan im afraid.

    Well, I felt like checking on my copy of Pokemon Sapphire and guess what popped up when I started the game.

    "The internal battery has run dry. The game can be played. However, clock-based events will no longer occur."

    At this point, I'm stumped on what to do. I've been looking around in this thread because somebody said that this question was answered a lot of times, but I haven't found a 100% straight answer.

    Can't very well help you since you haven't really asked a question. If you're asking what it means, it means all clock based events won't happen anymore (Shoal Cave tides, sales events in the post-game, berry growth). And if you're asking if it can be fixed, then I'm pretty sure it can by hooking up (lol) with Emerald, FireRed, or LeafGreen. And the Pokemon Colosseum Bonus Disc should fix it too. This is starting to be a real problem lately, I've noticed. :( Like when GSC batteries started dying.

    Maybe this can help more than I can? http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Berry_glitch

    I did look at the article there before you recommended it to me. The glitch happens after over 100 hours of playtime has occurred or if you've own the game for over a year. My playtime in Sapphire is around 60 hours and I've had that game since 2003. But this little paragraph is what is confusing me.

    "Games afflicted by the glitch will not display the following message upon start up: "The internal battery has run dry. The game can be played. However, clock-based events will no longer occur." This message is displayed when the internal battery has run dry. "

    I got that exact message when I start my Sapphire game. If I got this glitch, why is that message showing when I select my save file?

    Then that just means the internal battery has run dry. And I guess when the actually battery runs dry, it's not just the berry glitch, it's the battery. My Ruby was patched, but I got that message back in December when I went back to play it for something.

    So because of the battery, you can't use the patches to fix it anymore, you'd actually need to replace the battery. That's how I'm looking at this all at least.

    It is the battery in my Sapphire game. If I did have the Berry Glitch, I wouldn't be able to draw a lotto ticket at the Lilycove Department Store. I did that and I did get a lotto ticket. I don't have the Berry Glitch. I did check out my other GBA Pokemon games and they are all fine for now.

    Since my battery is running dry, will transferring my important Pokemon to the Gen IV games via Pal Park be an issue?

    No it shouldn't be a problem. The same thing happened to my Pokemon Ruby and it hasn't effected my Pearl or HeartGold one bit. I'm pretty sure you could try replacing the internal battery but you might delete your save file so I say just live with it.

    I want to get the rest of my important Sapphire Pokemon to a save spot before I do decide to replace the battery.

    I suggest trading them to another adv gen game with a working battery and then migrating, if you're worried about the time on your Sapphire messing around with your migration timing. But HGSS don't have that stupid timing thing from what I understand, so if you migrate to one of those, the clock on your Sapphire shouldn't matter.

      Would Slakoth be a good option to consider on my team on Sapphire?
      (I figured it would be better to ask here instead of S&M because it's just one pokemon)

      I'd keep it at Vigoroth though; since we all know of Slaking's ability.

      But yeah, Viggy has high Speed + Attack.

      Yes.

        I searched the thread and nothing came up, so I'm going to ask it here: How does Hustle work in 3rd gen? Is it still only Physical attack that is raised or does it effect Special Attack as well because all the description reads is "Trades Accuracy for Power."

        It increased attack in trade for Accuracy, a lot of people use it as a Aerial Ace power up :]

          So its still just Attack that's raised and not Special Attack? So it still does nothing beneficial for a Togetic, ya?

            Um, on the topic of the internal battery, is there a way to prevent it from running dry?

              Having your game in a machine (GBA, DS) slows the battery drain down quite a bit. Playing it also seems to slow it down. Keeping it in a cool place slows it down, like most batteries. You can't stop it going dry, though. Eventually, they'll all die. :3

              Hi I was playing my Emerald and I was wondering if this was normal. There was a swarm of Seedot on Route 102. I caught lots as I like them. When I went to the PC and looked at them they all knew the move Leech Seed which is normally only learnt through egg moves.

              Yes, this is normal. Usually on Route 102 Seedot are rare to find. However, if you go to a TV (anyone, it doesn't matter which) they announce swarms and whatever route they say will have the Pokémon they confirmed to be there. The thing about the swarms is if you happen to catch them, they have a move they don't normally learn by leveling up or perhaps just at that level. So there's nothing wrong with your Seedot, it just happened to be one from a swarm.

                There are Skitty swarms and Lotad ones after you mix records with Sapphire.

                  Kind of a difficult question to obtain a response to, but does anyone know how many Apprentices can be "created/generated" in Emerald's Battle Tower? They have pre-set dialogue, so I'm assuming there's a limit as to how many were coded into the game...

                  (I'm referring to the English version BTW, because from my understanding the implementation of the Apprentice differs greatly between the Japanese and English editions of Pokemon Emerald Version, judging by this article on Serebii).

                    Should I evolve Vigoroth into Slaking? I know the ability is hard to work with, but Slaking has the stats to make up for it.

                    No don't, well, you can if you want to, but IMO don't. I kept Vigoroth how it was and it actually did well, it managed to hold it's own in battles and whatnot.
