What's the standard time limit for a swarm? Is it one hour real time, or one hour game time?

I'm thinking it's game time, simply because of what happened to me earlier.

5:30 pm: Arnie (the guy on Route 35) calls and says the Yanma are swarming. I didn't care at that point, and I had to run an errand. I saved the game then.

7:55 pm: I pick the game up again and decide to level up a Spinarak on Route 35. Here's the first 8 Pokemon I saw, in sequence:

Yanma
Nidoran M
Yanma
Yanma
Yanma
Nidoran F
Nidoran M
Yanma

If the swarm wasn't active, then would this happen?

I'd do more tests, but I nuked my file about an hour ago.

[Edit] Re-worded something... I didn't actually catch them.

I do believe it lasts for the whole day. So you got until 11:59 to catch them.

Are you sure? After that, I was on the route for about another hour, and I didn't see another Yanma. *shrugs*

There's always the possibility that it works on real time, and a different swarm had started. Maybe...

I've heard that it lasts as long as another trainer doesn't call you.

Can't confirm that, though.
