In my experience, the game will only temporarily freeze if the games are too far apart, not pointed towards each other or something is in the way. If you fix the positioning and remove obstructions, the game normally continues going. You mention Albert slightly moved his DS before the freeze. I don't know if you think he was intentionally trying to cause the game to freeze but I think it's coincidence since he should have no reason to believe that would cause the game to freeze permanently.
If the match timer runs out while either side is still in the middle of choosing their moves, the match will go to tiebreaker instead of playing out the extra turn. You will still have to select your moves but this doesn't do anything (maybe Run does, I'm not sure). If I'm reading your warstory correctly, there was never going to be a extra turn for Albert to try and make a comeback. The match was already over 3-2 in your favor.
Go beyond the impossible and kick reason to the curb! Who cares if they Levitate? Earthquake away!
