So I recently bought the Mega Memory Card by InterACT that is designed for the GBC. It is perfectly designed to back up Pokemon Games from Gen. 1 and Gen. 2. I've tested this with Blue, and it restored everything. ID numbers, nicknames for Pokemon, even the event flags like how I caught MewTwo.
I have to replace the internal batteries in my Pokemon Crystal game before I start playing that game again, but I intend to use this device to back up the game should the battery die again. However, since you can't reset the clock in Crystal, I have one concern.
Does anyone know if restoring your saved games in Gold/Silver/Crystal also restore the clock? And if so, will it be the time at which the back up was made (meaning I would have to restart the game clock if it was Gold or Silver)?
If restoring saved games restores the state the clock was at during the back-up, then I guess I'll have to deal with Crystal being in a different "Time Zone" when I restore it. If it doesn't save the state of the clock, will it cause a conflict with the game or will the game just ask me to reset the clock after restoring the game?
