Dry Battery by Epifex Dry Battery by Epifex
So there's been a little confusion as to exactly what the point is, and frankly I'm not really surprised.

Basically when the internal battery in a GBA Pokemon game dries up, it says "The game will still be playable, but clock-based events will no longer occur." In reality this just means that things like sales at the department store and outbreaks of particular Pokemon won't happen, but I figured it could be reinterpreted as time freezing throughout the game, which is either totally awesome or totally terrible for the trainer.

I know it isn't strictly what the dry battery thing does, but I can dream ;D

My Ruby's actually run out of battery now. I think that's why none of the previously fought trainers want rematches, which is going to make level-grinding on my new playthrough exceedingly difficult. :/

I like how the hands came out in panel 3, I had to get my brother to model his hands for a minute because I suck at those fancy-schmancy gestures and stuff.

Also I seriously need to get more ink refills for my markers, most of them are drying out now. But refills are so expensive... ;_;

My first instinct would have been to look down her panties to prove once and for all that all the Joys are robots... Yeah, that's why i'd do it, for science!

The generation 1 games used a battery to maintain the save. The battery didn't do much else, unlike in gen 2 or 3 games.

They had internal batteries? Whoah, seems like I wasn't that much of an addict to have never seen this occur before... :_:

Battery death happens to the best of us, on a side note, he has 11 fingers!
