You can use an English version of X/Y with PokeBank on your JP 3DS.


Region Lock?

Ouch, a digital copy?

Yea digital, assuming they accept American credit cards.

I meant your English copy of the game. Figured you could put that into your Japanese 3DS and use the Bank that way. I remember reading on Bulbapedia that it was possible.

No, unfortunately I have a digital English copy, but I'm okay with locally trading between both 3DS'

I think he means that while you can't play the English copy on the JPN 3DS, you can drop Pokemon into it via the app, and then switch to the ENG 3DS.

Pokebank accepts them, you just can't play the games themselves.

Which is pretty dumb...

I'm saying the region lock might not let you play the English Pokemon game on the Japanese 3DS as was suggested. *Edit* to word what I'm saying better, the Japanese 3DS might not even recognize what was put into it as a game and give it as an option to transfer, kind of like when you put a super famicom cart into a super nintendo it wouldn't do anything.

I wasn't suggesting that at all, i simply said that a English copy of the game can work with PokeBank in a JP 3DS. I didn't say you can play said game on the 3DS.
