There are also some other options that you'll want to have a look at in the Options Menu. Turning on Fast Text Speed will help improve the speed at which text is displayed, and there's a lot of it. This will save a good amount of time during cutscenes.

You can also turn off the option that automatically gives nicknames to your Pokemon. This will help save time whenever catching Pokemon by allowing you to skip the message. This also makes it easier to see exactly which Pokemon you have already caught.

If you don't care for the story or are a seasoned trainer, you can also turn on Skip Cutscenes to quickly get back into the action.
