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. :)
