Japanese VS English 3DS for Pokemon.

First I want to say stupid 3DS for being region locked.

- For Japanese version
You can change the language in Pokemon X and Y.
So I can play the game in English with my Japanese game.

I can also change the 3DS language to English.

And play games Like Super Robot Wars UX and SD Gundam G Generation 3D
as well as the new Mario Kart and Super Smash Bros. (They should be playable in Japanese)

- For Not Japanese version
I have to buy all my games on-line and wait for them to be shipped
I can go to a store a buy a 3DS game
I can't sell my 3DS games to a store or revice them as gifts
If I want to play a game in English I can't - So no Zelda or Phoenix Wright :(

Questions
- Can I play my English DS games on a Japanese 3DS?
- What names would the Japanese version give to the pokemon?
- Do I need to play Black and White 2? (only pokemon game I have never played)

Yes. DS games are not region-locked.

Probably whatever names that match with the chosen language.

No.
