14-23 fps pokemon ultra moon

I am currently having an issue of whenever I go outside, or often during cut scenes, my fps can be as low as 14-15 fps, as well as 23 fps often during battle (30 fps when inside obviously). I am playing at 4x native (1600x960), and I identified my single cpu proccessing power rank of 252 (Intel Core i7-3820 @ 3.60GHz) using this website. Is my processor too weak, or is it something else?
(I have a GTX 970, 16 gigs of ram if that matters, and fraps/Msi afterburner are closed while I run citra)

Citra is still early development. Not every game will run at full speed. Having a CPU high single core performance helps but results will still vary. There has been some progress in improving performance that will offload some of the work done by the CPU to the GPU so your GTX 970 will benefit from this.

Ok, thanks! Hopefully things will improve soon over time.
