Actually, I wasn't referring to the initial frame offsets on that, but to the extra PID advancement that supposedly vanishes after Memory Linking, which'd explain the results funeral_cake and I were getting. That other seed (which was a different seed, of course) having the very different initial frame is just what confirmed it for me. Most seeds I've run show the same initial frame either way, but that one didn't, and is what tipped me off to check. I have two games. It happens on both. Neither have even connected to a BW1 game through Union Room, nor Dream World. They haven't even connected to each other. Either something very weird is going on, or there's more to the RNG on this than has been discovered thus far.
