Pokemon Crimson/Crimson stutters with you? This trick might help

Pokémon Crimson and Crimson lets you play against other Trainers online in Battle Stadium.

Pokémon Crimson and Crimson players appear to be experiencing increased technical difficulties. The game is characterized by close proximity pop-ins and steady frame rate drops. Perhaps we now know the reason for this: Some fans assume that this is a so-called “memory leak”. Which would then also mean that there is a way to do something about it and improve the situation.

Pokémon Crimson and Crimson: You can do this against performance problems

This could be the reason: Fans suspect a phenomenon called Memory Leak behind the problems of the new Pokémon game. This bug occurs from time to time in games and, roughly speaking, ensures that the memory of the switch fills up over time and space is unnecessarily occupied, which is then no longer usable.

The good news: If the difficulties really are related to this technical problem, it can most likely be fixed relatively easily with a patch. And until then, we can do something about it ourselves.

Try this trick: You can empty the full memory again, so to speak, when you restart the game. If you do this on a regular basis (or whenever the performance issues get worse), Pokémon Crimson should play better.

You can reset the game or the full graphics memory not only with a reset, but also if you enter Mesalona City and then leave it again. Because the city loads its own small map, the full memory is apparently also reset.

Just a workaround: Of course, this is not a long-term solution, but only a makeshift. Of course, it seems a bit unsatisfactory that something like this is necessary at all and we hope that developer studio Game Freak will submit an update as soon as possible to fix the whole thing in the long term.

However, there could also be other and deeper-seated problems. At least, a memory that is becoming full over time cannot actually be responsible for the fact that Pokémon Crimson and Crimson stutters for some players in the very first room of the game.

In our big GamePro test, we devalued the ninth generation Pokémon part by five points due to the various technical problems. The constant stuttering and the very late loading can really put you in a bad mood. The rather loveless design of the world also contributes to this.

What is your experience with in-game performance? Does it help if you force a reset or visit Mesalona City?
