I noticed something different, You know when you go to your pal pad for the japanese one and when you add a friend code and it ask to put someones name? Well in the pokemon hg/ss(j) It only ask you for 5 characters name, But in the english one is 7. I tried adding my friend named "Stephen" on my pokemon(j) version its only 5 characters. But in the english one its 7 characters. Thing is the english version of pokemon hg and ss freezes. So I have to use the jap one and patch it with english. Any Ideas?
