Topic: Slow startup and black screen when I try to play Pokémon ultra sun on 2ds

Posts 1 to 4 of 4


So I got this game yesterday and I love it but I’ve been experiencing some issues with it. It takes like 30 seconds to start up on my 2ds and when I close it my 2ds says waiting for software to close then the screen goes black for a few seconds then it comes back to the home screen. Is anyone else experiencing this?



I'm sad to say this isn't an Error.
Pokémon Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon use the extra Power the New 3DS offers, that's why they don't run that well on older 3DS or 2DS Models.

That's the 2DS disabling/enabling other services. So it can use the extra power on the game.

The "new" systems don't need to do this because they have enough power by default.

This is normal on older 3DS/2DS models. Starting up and closing the software takes so long because the system is freeing up memory. The games push these models to the absolute limit.

Feel free to send me a Switch friend request, but please tell me first. Otherwise, I probably won't accept.
