I beat the Elite Four in my Pokemon Emerald save file just a few days ago. One of the very first things I did was going to the lottery in Lilycove City. The NPC just said, "Please come back tomorrow." Then, I checked Shoal Cave to check if the tide has changed. However, the tide was the exact same as when I first entered the cave. And then, I went to check my Pomeg & Oran Berries that I have been growing for well over a week. And Finally, I checked the clock at my house, and the game time has not changed since I started the game over a month ago. Does sombody know what to do about this? And no, I am Playing EMERALD, not Ruby or Sapphire. And on the GBA. Not on an Emulator.

Read this. https://pokemondb.net/pokebase/257904/ Does any of it apply to your situation?
Does it say “The internal battery has run dry. The game can be played. However, clock-based events will no longer occur” when you start up the game?

KRLW890 is right. If you had the game for a month its battery should be dead if it was already used. That about sums it up.

Some people claim to have the battery last longer than 1 or 2 years. Also dead batteries are replaceable.
He probably got it with a half dead battery and didn't know how to replace it or did not know about the battery.

Emerald cartridges that have broken time-based events might be fake. You can identify fake cartridges by watching this video.
