So, for the Masuda method, what exactly do I need?

My cartridge is from Europe, and the pokemon I want to breed is a normal Glaceon, that came from an egg that my American friend gave me. I have my Geonet registered as Texas, United States.

Judging from Bulbapedia, If I understand correctly a pokemon that can breed with Glaceon from my cart will work, since the Glaceon counts as American?
Something Funny.

I think the Pokemon must be from a different language origin, so any two Pokemon coming from any English language games (this includes American, United Kingdom, and Australia) won't trigger the Masuda Method. The following are the different languages currently supported by Pokemon:

Yes, the two Pokemon must be from different regions, or languages in this case. The simplest method is to get a foreign Ditto, so you can breed any Pokemon. That is, of course, unless you're breeding for Egg Moves or Natures or things of that kind.
