Issue:
Stuttering. Probably heard about it a million times by now. Only happens in loading times, which is probably to be expected.

I did not find anything wrong in your log file. Please wait for a moderator to assist.

I’m afraid that to a certain degree, this is unavoidable for the pokemon game currently. They have something called CRO loading, which basically loads/unloads the 3DS’ equivalent of a .dll every time it’s used → which causes things to pass through Citra’s JIT again, creating the stutter. Pokemon games use this on basically every transition. So even if you had an extremely powerful gaming computer, it still wouldn’t be completely stutter free I’m afraid.

You could try to see if underclocking the CPU Clock Speed to 50% in Emulation>Configuration>System decreases this a bit though.
