    I've noticed some lag in combat playing Pokemon black, I've played different roms and it doesn't seem to fix it. I'm using a DSTWO

    What's you're micro SD card and how much space is left.

    Yeah it's lagging on 8gb class 2, no lags on class 4 or higher. Get faster SD.

    No lag on a 16 Gb Class 2 Kingston, around 3 Gb free space. Faster SD =/= only solution. A lot depends on were it was manufactured and what the test can produce for it.

    Somewhere near monkat
    Obligatory class doesn't = random access speed, which is what is important, just only buy good branded sd cards and you should be fine

    Thanks for the replies all, I was using a class 2 sdhc just bought a class 4 8gb real quick at walmart. Solved my lag problems. [​IMG] Does how much space you have left on the card affect speed? Since I'm jumping from a 4 gig I have 4 left maybe ill hesitate to fill it up.

    also will higher classes make a difference? I may keep an eye out if a class 10 or something goes on sale.

    One trick I used to use with my old SD (which happened to lag with Black/White) was this:

    1. Open the DSTWO's menu (L+R+Start by default) while playing Black/White.
    2. Set the slow motion to 100%
    3. Close the menu and go back to Black/White, and make the screen change (such as opening your pokedex or something). Your game should be super slow.
    4. Now go back and set the slow motion to 0%
    5. Your game should no longer lag now.

    This trick used to fix all the games that were laggy back on my old SD.
