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

your GPU driver is several years old. Update to the most recent driver.

Be advised that your GPU is also a Kepler one which stopped receiving driver updates from Nvidia although the most recent one is still not that old.

Your CPU is also very old and missing modern instruction sets. Don’t expect a demanding game like Pokemon Shield to run well at all with such a CPU.

Should the update be game ready driver or studio driver. If there are no studio drivers available, should the nvidia driver be uninstalled and a new nvidia driver of different version be installed

Should I remove my nvidia driver and install a new nvidia driver?

Yes, here: https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/drivers/results/145874/

studio driver is for software programs for video/photo editing. You want the game ready driver.
And yes just do a clean install since your PC contains outdated drivers.
