Yeah, this past few weeks, I've pretty much been using this one initial seed I found by chance on Jan 8th. I can abuse it to get 2 Rare Candies each time, with only about 90 seconds between clock resets.
So it sounds like from what you're saying (haven't tested it myself yet), is to use the frame 6 seed as my Pickup seed if I encounter a Pokemon on frame 1, for example?
Kaphotics replied on the research thread, saying it has to do with PID frames. But they weren't sure. So I guess I'll have to play around a little more with it.
Still, it sounds like I couldn't get Rare Candies much faster than I currently am (the Timer0 fluctuation is the only thing slowin it down). So for my purposes, I may not care to look much more into it. But who knows? My curiosity may tempt me again at some point. :)
Hi, you pretty much gave me the idea of looking into Pickup RNG.
I've been looking at some things.
Basically, if you do lots of consecutive battles using sweet scent straight after teh previous one, you'll find that the Pokémon you battle is 6 frames after the previous one. The fifth frame, i.e. the one right before the next battle is the Pickup RNG Seed.
You don't need to copy the seed and paste it into the researcher again. You will notice that all the frames that come after a certain frame are the same frames that would appear if the number of that frame was the seed.
So basically rather than putting that seed in the researcher again just look at the next 6 frames or so.
