When I was doing the set up picture for ya, I didn't see the IV MTRNG location advance at all even throughout the entire process. I'm pretty sure the 022160[A]4(8) location was flying with the rain.
Interesting... I'll try this out for the starters to see if they get the predicted IVs.

The PID is set the second you dismiss the Received Pokemon message, before they start talking to you again. The IV MTRNG changes when you receive your starter.
There is no passive advancement for either seed, so hitting a seed and saving to advance is the only way to go for starters.
IVs were predicted by the IV MTRNG Seed.
The frame advances by 1 when the battle screen starts flashing for each rival. The seed does not change when the MTRNG seed does during the battle.
Why does it advance so much after not advancing by much at all? Probably setting your rival's Pokemon, as they were different even with the same seeds, even between save states (thus based off of some other value with another advancing memory location playing a role).
Starters are generated the same way for each. No different frame stuffs, all are frame 1, but the XOR was interesting.
Frame SEED1 SEED2
0 3D072258 5C841A77 Start 0...
1 F5C0437B F300431A
2 957B114A 73342467 End 0 - F301431A
3 86FB0AF5 AC53CDB7 End 1 - 73352467
4 42C20E6C 385453CA End 2 - AC52CDB7
don't know why, /end

Coming in to edit months later to clarify on the XOR thingy I said. There's no different XOR after looking at the RNG again. Noobishly I saw it add 10000 for the first and second, and subtract 10000 on the 3rd one. The RNG when advanced and XOR'd does this correctly. No odd XORs here!
