Question from rootballs
Can I play Japanese Pokemon HeartGold or SoulSilver on American Nintendo 3ds?
I know that 3ds and dsi games are region locked, but I am not sure if HH and SS are free to be played on 3ds. I know that black and white are not.

Nintendo DS games were not region-locked, and that idea extends, with the given games, to the 3DS.
Now, say it were Japanese DSi-enhanced or 3DS games. Not the case - that's why you can't play Black/White, 1 or 2.

Yes you can. They are normal DS games.
Yep, they will work just fine :)
The 3DS system is region-locked, so you unfortunatly cant play a Japanese PKMN: HG/SS on you system.
Sorry unfortunately you cannot use a Japanese HeartGold/SoulSilver on an American 3DS because although the cartridge is in fact "DS" the cartridge is a "DSi enhanced" game which will block you out from playing it. Sames goes with Black/White and Black 2/White 2.
