Citra doesn’t officially support the new M1 Macs. For more information regarding compatibility, please check this page: Apple M1 Chip on MacBook Pro

Thanks! I can play Pokemon X and Pokemon Omega Ruby just fine on this computer, which are both 3DS games. Is Pokemon Moon just that much more to process, or is something else possibly wrong regarding just that game?

The problem is that you’re using an M1 Mac. Which are not officially supported. You need to expect that crashing, bugs and every other fault that could occur, will occur.

This is why I sent you that link to the other topic. In there some other M1 Mac users tested out various potential fixes for some games. Pokemon Ultra Moon included: Apple M1 Chip on MacBook Pro - #11 by simonaque

You can try to see if what worked for them works for you, but if it doesn’t you’re out of luck.
