Default Low frame rate with 3D off??

Is anyone else having low framerate with 3D off?

According to Masuda they dissabled the 3D for the overworld and team battles because they wanted to add a lot of detail and 3DS couldn't proccess all those elements in 3D, but I am encountering some low framerate moments in 1 on 1 battles when 3D is off. What the hell, Game Freak? I still love the game, that won't stop me from playing until X/Y 2 comes out, but it's still annoying.

Also, do you think this can be solved with a future firmware update?

The framerate only drops for me in 2D when the screen splits and shows both Pokemon at once.

Rotation battles suffer from this.

I haven't played any rotation or triple battles. I think double battles suffer a little.

Game Freak isn't know for their excellent optimization skills. Even BW/B2W2 had frames being dropped. I think they said they added 20 new people for X/Y. I think they should double in size, which is manageable with the amount of money they make.

Yeah the game is just awful graphically. It doesn't even look demanding, so how the hell can it has no 3D and/or awful fps drops? It just proves how lazy they were when developing it, "who cares kids buy it anyway"...

Actually, I think that Pokemon X and Y were very taxing on the 3DS. Things like full animations, moving camera angles, slightly interactive battlefield, etc show that Gamefreak was trying.

Yea the frame rate is rather annoying. I think, unfortunately, Game Freak may have been urged to promote the 2D (maybe to show other developers that you don't HAVE to have the best 3d to make a good game?) to encourage 2ds adopters. Because if you want pokemon X/Y, can't afford the 3DS, and the 2DS is just such a lesser experience that it's not worth it, then you're one person who didn't buy the game.

Yeah it drops from time to time. I was disappointed that gamefreak didn't optimize it better.

I've noticed that as well. Especially in battles with 3D on. Most of the times I use Razor Leaf with my Ivysaur the frame rate drops

yeah 'cause it's a great marketing strategy to purposefully remove PART of a feature in a game to "appeal" to mothers who buy their kids a 2ds 'cause it's cheaper, as well as suffer from bad pr for not having 3d in PART of the game

Its vey noticeable, I luv this game but I feel that not as much effort as expected went into this game, I think even the graphics outside of the battle scenes are not so good, I mean a massive step up fron the DS but for 3ds capability I think it could of been alot better

On the contray though these games have never been about good graphics, more there awesome gameplay which is as good as ever, I look forward to the improvements in the next game

I personally don't give a damn about graphics, actually. Pokemon could be an ASCII game and I would still enjoy it BUT framerate drops really annoys me a lot.

The only time I've noticed a frame drop is during single battles when the screen splits to show both Pok?mon. It would be nice if that didn't happen, but it doesn't bother me much. Oddly enough, I've battled with my cousin a few times (locally) and I couldn't seem to notice any issues when the camera split into that same view.
