Hmm I wonder if FRLG's PRNG seeding routine is better than Ruby/sapphire's...
It's not, R/S was better due to the more variant initial starting seeds (hence more random).

FRLG had 0x0000 - 0xFFFF starting seeds, whereas R/S was 0x0 - 0x7FFFFFFF.

Both are definitely more random than Emerald, but R/S did it better. In later games (DPPt and BW) you have a mix of datetime and hardware timers (delay).
