    I'm not talking about slowdown or fps drops, though those do happen on the rare occasion, I mean full-on SNES on an HDTV levels of input lag. This is something I remember happening rarely online way back when the game first came out, but now it happens with every match, and even local matches. The odd thing is that my friend, who was playing local vs with me, experienced no lag whatsoever. I'm lead to believe, then, that something is going on with my 3DS in particular. I'm using a N3DS running ReiNAND, and I'm fairly certain that I've never gone online with a game since installing it, so I can't say if other games have this issue. In fact, I don't think I own any other online competitive games to test. Could my CFW be the cause? If not, what else could be happening?
