Default FPS Drop/Lag during 3D battles

Hey all,

Anyone else experience some FPS drop/lag during battle scenes? It is very noticeable to me. Just wanted to make sure im not alone.

Yes, it always happens between turns when the screen is split between the two Pokemon. That's pretty much it for me, although I never use 3D.

It happens the most to me when the camera pans out and around the battle field. Or when my torchic uses ember sometimes too.

This is one of my "big" issues with the game. I plan on making a review on these forums once I finally complete the game and basically give a run down on what I see in this new Generation. But back on topic... Usually when I try and use the 3D feature during battles, like you, I get a pretty noticable FPS drop but it immediently stops when I switch back to 2D.

Yep. Game Freak + optimizing = no.
It sucking f*cks, it f*cking sucks, it f*cking blows, it's a piece of sh*t - and I don't like it.

It doesnt even allow for 3D on triple battles (atleast on normal 3ds) : /

That's too bad. I'm one of the few who actually likes the 3D effect in games. Does the FPS increase/decrease when you lower/increase the 3D slider?

3D on = constant dropped frames. 3D off = dropped frames during intensive stuff or screen-split between two Pokemon. I don't use 3D because the FPS annoys me.
