Both my ruby and my girlfriends Sapphire games have stopped growing
berries etc. Now I know that this is due to an internal clock problem which
can be fixed in one of three ways.
the first two involve colloseum and box, so are out of the question, the
third is to send the carts to Pokemon UK. It says on the web page that you
get a small gift if you do this.
Has anybody sent off their cart and if so do you know what the gift is?

There is one lat way.

If you trade with FR/LG the cart will do the internal patch for the clock

I seem to remember that you don't have to trade. There's some mode that
activates either at the title screen or the Save/New Game screen.

I think you're thinking of changing the time the clock indicates, like
for Daylight Savings Time. We're talking about the bug where, after 100
hours or days or something pass after you started a game the clock stops
completely. While time doesn't affect the game quite the same way as it
did in Gold and Silver, there are still time related events (like the
growth of berry trees and high and low tides) that rely on the clock
being able to work. I know patches were distributed on the Colosseum
bonus disk, and I think Colosseum, Fire Red, and Leaf Green could patch
the bug, too.

It's almost certainly a shiny Zigzagoon, since that's what Nintendo of
America gave away, and the UK fix seems to be the same.

I'm almost tempted to send them my cart (that's already interacted with
Channel, Coli, Box and FL) just for the silver scrounger.

Thanks. I think I'll get my girlfriend to give them a call tomorrow oh
erm today.
Anybody interested in what the outcome is if we do send the carts off?
Unless Sanity clause is very very nice to me this year I don't think that
LG/FR is on the cards and I don't own a gamecube.

[Re: Shiny Zigzagoon]

> Is there any thing diffrent about it's stats?

No. Shininess is no longer determined by IVs, so its stats will presumably
be as random as those found in the wild. That said, the Mew given away
during the RBY days all had the exact same IVs, so the Zigzagoons might all
be identical as well.

Either way, though, the only thing special about it is that it's silver.
