Obviously, the point is to see if you can get the same seed twice. It's pretty much common sense that you'd try to minimize the variation on the number of frames that pass by. Therefore, the smart thing to do would be just to just sweet scent a pokemon ASAP after each reset. There's no sense in throwing in additional variation (by waiting upwards of ~2 minutes) to the experiment.
