    Update 1.3 has been released for ORAS. I went into a battle with 3D on, and there was no lag! THANK GOD!!!!
    New 3DS XL!

    Update:
    Just tried the update on an old 3DS , and there is still FPS lag/stuttering when 3D is on. Seems to have only affected the New 3DS.

    New or old 3DS?
    It still lags on my old 3DS, but on the new one the lag is gone.

    Double/Triple battles disable 3D. But even with it off, the game was known to lag in double/triple battles. Perhaps patch improved frame rates for n3DS users?

    if you are gonna patch a game make sure the patch works properly on both systems. if the lag is gone in the new 3ds at least attempt to rid or even lower the lag for the older 3ds. i'm just glad i'll be getting a new 3ds here either this week or after my next paycheck.

    the n3ds has more processing power though, they may simply have taken advantage of that and nothing else.

    I have a N3DS with Ω Ruby 1.3 and I can confirm that the lag hasn't been improved at all.

    Still see lag on my N3DSXL with the latest update. Could be because I have swampert, am fighting a larger pokemon, and there are rain effects, but I have my doubts that the latest patch did much. Perhaps it was more noticeable in more normal battle conditions with smaller pokemon (with less polys and whatnot)...?

    IIRC, the only reason this patch was released only to stop PKHex.
    You need to update to battle or trade online, and with that you need access e-shop,
    which makes you update your 3DS and which fixes the web exploit.
    This web exploit was used to load a binary which edit the RAM and with that inserting Pokémons made from PKHex.
    The same applies for XY 1.4 update.
