FPS drops on Pokemon Alpha Sapphire

So basically the game fps drops below 20 fps during online matches.
Was trying all graphic tweaks within the program, tried both on MacOS and Windows (using bootcamp).
For the majority of the time the game run smoothly… ish.
But whenever I’m playing with a friend online the fps drops massively and there’s nothing for me to do. The game literally becomes unplayable.

Hope for some advise, windows/macos, I don’t care.

Probably nothing you can do. online activity is difficult to sync, you/your friend can really only hope to have a better connectoin and lower ping/latency to keep in better sync. Both of you reducing internal resolution to native might help, but it’s largely a connection and ‘not strong enough pc’ issue. There’s no magic fix.
