Pokemon moon freezes at the start

Issue: At first, I get stable fps but as soon as the call starts and Kukui’s model loads, the game freezes for about 10 seconds, then the music plays normally again and I can still interact with the game but the image is still freezing.

Here’s some issues I found with your log that might help.

  • You are running out of date drivers for your GPU. You need to install the most recent driver for your graphics card from Intel’s website. Support for Intel® Graphics
  • Enabling Accurate Multiplication is recomended in certain games. If you are experiencing graphical glitches, try enabling this option.
  • Please enable the Vsync option if you are experiencing screen tearing.

This driver is out of date. To update, download win64_25.20.100.6373.zip (yes, this is an older driver, we install the latest driver later) from https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/28289/Intel-Graphics-Driver-for-Windows-10
