Pokémon X and Pokémon Y are role-playing video games developed by Game Freak and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo 3DS. They are the first installments in the sixth generation of the Pokémon series of role-playing games.

Summary

Pokémon X and Y run extremely poorly in Citra. Graphically, the games have major graphical issues, and crash quite often. Missing most sound effects and music. These games are unplayable even if you transfer a save from a 3DS. Here are some more issues that will happen: 1. It will be stuck on black screen after you choose a name and press okay. 2. If a Pokemon shows its ability, it will hang there. 3. If you pick/get a item it will hang there also. 4. Audio may glitch out 5. You may also get black spot on trainers face (male only).

Still does not work on Canary #754 (8/11/18) All problems above still apply, Also some people may have problems booting the game.

Audio Issues

Pokemon X/Y constantly freeze and crash due to audio issues. Citra emulates a single audio firmware. Almost all games use the same audio firmware that the home menu uses. so when merry wrote the audio code, she reverse engineered this firmware and recreated in Citra. but some games like X and Y use a custom firmware. @wwylele has been working on a firmware interpreter that can support all firmwares, instead of emulating just one particular one. X/Y uploads a custom firmware to the audio chip. other Pokemon games don’t.
