I know the 3DS is region-locked, but the DS never was. Can I still play DS games from other regions on my 3DS?

DS games are region-free, except for DSi games which are also region-locked on the DSi.

Why is the 3DS region locked. Is it to do with piracy?

Marketing. It is so each region can get it's fair share.

i'm not sure why it's region-locked, but i think region restrictions usually have to with rating/content. what might be acceptable content in one region might be more strictly regulated in other regions, like violence, drugs, sexual stuff, etc.

See if the 3DS was region free that would mean that someone would get be able to get a Japanese 3DS game and not get the English version, that would mean that NoA wouldn't get money for that game, NoJ would get it.
