Pokemon Sun freezes at a near point at the start of the game but I can still hear the audio tho

My problem is pretty much what the title says, it’s at the point at the start of the game where I have a Video Call with Professor Kukui. This keeps happening even if I restart the game, Idk if it’s the file or it’s Citra, but I do know one thing this makes me quite irritated and also disappointed not being able to play the game that I wanted on my wishlist 2 years ago. o-o

Uhm, you’re supposed to tell your character to move at that point. If you tried that, make sure that your movement buttons are mapped correctly in Citra’s Controls menu.

Gosh I’m an idiot, I’m sincerely sorry SleepingSnake. This is my fisrt time playing this game, I thought it was still a cutscene. ;2;
