So I'm planning to finally buy Pokemon Y again(bought Pokemon X last time) since it was lost/stolen months ago. Unfortunately, the apartment I'm living in has abysmally bad internet, to the point where most games have horrible lag and videos that are only a few minutes long can take upwards of an hour to buffer. I was wondering if I'd still be able to battle, trade and do other online activities despite the poor connection. I am mainly rebuying the game for the online battles/breeding since I already beat the singleplayer campaign(the terrible storyline at least) and I don't think I'd buy the game if I can't do anything online with it.

The big question is whether the game would connect, but with lag, or in general just give me an error message and fail to connect at all. I've had both scenarios occur while trying to connect in certain games.

It's a turn-based game. It will work as long as your Internet connection is stable enough to avoid getting disconnected.
