the frame rate drops in wild battles or battle in general on a 3ds. though im guessing that emulation might be a cause too.

That’s because of the Pokemon games’s aweful CRO loading, which is also present on the desktop version. The android version has the added affect of not having a shader cache yet so the problems with transitioning in new areas/battles is a bit more pronounced.

There’s nothing you can do about that currently. You’ll need to wait until further improvements are made to the emulator.
