Always starts left to right, like this picture taken at the results screen.

Starts immediately, even before first fight, and the exact numbers are always a bit different.

I understand the Thylacine setup is a special clause not, to my knowledge, duplicated anywhere else in game; I’m sort of shocked how well it behaves overall.
