Will these warnings prevent me from getting a shiny?

    My Sapphire version says "The internal battery has run dry. The game can be played. Clock based events will no longer occur." My Ruby version says "The save file will be loaded. The game can be played." I'm wondering if it will stop me from getting a shiny, because I've been hunting a while, and I'm not sure if it's bad luck or something else.

    Yeah, you still can. That's like saying you will stop running into wild Pokémon or be unable to run into the same Pokémon with different natures, or of different genders once the internal battery has run dry. It just affects time-based events like growing berries, getting a lottery ticket, and seeing Mirage Island (I think). And as far as I know, it doesn't affect the odds of finding a shiny.

    I heard Emerald's RNG is different somehow, than R/S/ Would it affect in those cases?
