So I was wondering about the message the software would Display and how the roms with RTC will behave if the battery runned dry or was removed. As expected, it showed the message "Interna battery has run dry RTC resets to default". However, when I put the battery back the message still showed up, even put a new battery (CR1220 Lithium 3V Sony) and the message's still showing up.

I also tried putting the battery with the + at the side that the support of the cartridge shows, but still it seems that doesn't work.

Already checked that the battery still has energy by conducting from the support to the led and it seems that there is energy but still the software says that the battery is dry.

Solved the issue, it seems that the Pokémon E/R/S to Boktai RTC trick needed to be performed in order to the software "detect" the battery.

Just a PSA:
Never try this unless the battery really runs dry, because if you take out the battery, some saves will be lost, unless you DON'T OPEN ANY GAME, first go to SAVE or EMUSAVE folder, select the save file and choose the option "Copy SRAM to file" for all your saves you consider important, if you run the game first chances are that the game will overwrite your old save and you will lose your progress (happened with Pokémon Emerald).

When a battery is "dry" it doesn't mean it has 0 Volts, just that its voltage is below some threshold so the behavior when removing it could not be the same as when it's dry.
