Greeting all, This is my first post here. I have a JP pokemon X/Y/ORAS retails cartridge and I would like to play them on the US 3ds machine so that I could obtain all the events distribution exclusively to the US region (I know this is dump but I got a JP machine already, which cant be used to obtain those events distribution). However, I know that region lock would be a problematic issue but this may be resolved by HANS, the homebrew application Having done a bit search, I found a thread here: https://gbatemp.net/threads/hans-game-compatibility-thread.400903/, which said that: "Pokémon X/Y/OR/AS - Works [with Hans], but no update data detected. Language issues on region change." I wonder:- (1) Whether Hans allows me to play JP cartridge of XY/ORAS on the US machine online with all other players (whether from JP or US or EU) and communicate with a JP machine side-by-side? (2) is there any method to get around the problem of "no update data detected"? This is because I know the online gameplay probably would not work if we could not update the game...(If there is no other better option available, could I simply update the cartridge in the JP machine first and then play it on the US machine? - i know this is dump but it suits me in my case) (3) what would probably be the language issues on the region change? How would it affect the gameplay experience (particularly the online gameplay)? Thank you for your time. Any response is greatly appreciated as I am thinking whether I should acquire an US version of 3SD.
