    Yes, of course. The J, E, F, and G versions all work on the DStwo without any issues, so there's no reason this wouldn't work.

    So it looks like the only patch needed will be the noXP patch ?

    It's just laziness on Nintendo's/GameFreak's part. The Japanese version has AM/PM, and since North America also uses AM/PM, it's like they just released the EU version here.

    It should work with the r4. Though I don't think e saves will work with usa roms (You could use pokesav though.)

    The EU version's save is recognized as a US save (by Pokesav at least), so there shouldn't be any issues.
    You probably wouldn't even have the issues you would've gotten from transferring from JP to EU/US, since the EU and US ROMs are only slightly different.

    Well, I've never tried using different region saves. I thought since they come from different regions, the save wouldn't work.

    Thanks for explaining.

    Wait, wait guys, what if this is the EU rom?
    You know right now you could uselessly be transferring your save from your old EU game to this..
    Who can test whether its NA or not? (Not that I intend on downloading it, I'm buying one [​IMG] )

    The only way to tell so far is checking the CRC. If it doesn't match a clean EU ROM or an AP-patched EU ROM, then it's probably a NA ROM.

    It doesn't match either version of the E ROM, but it does match the CRC someone who dumped their actual Black cart got on another forum (which I can't name or link here because they allow linking ROMs.)

    So is there any real reason to switch to the USA version if you already have the European one? Unless you are a perfectionist or something... [​IMG]
    I know the saves should be compatible, but still.

    Yes, in terms of region-specific events.

    I heard that PoleSmokers dump of Pokemon Black and White is missing the DSi data. Wouldn't that make this a nuke or bad dump?

    Anyway guys, just wait for other dumps.
    Ones that are confirmed to be American and confirmed to have the DSi data on 'em too. [​IMG]
    Or just buy the game [​IMG]

    I bought Diamond on launch day, and there was barely any line. The people behind me were 2 moms talking about how they enjoyed FireRed/LeafGreen.
    I had to exchange a defective DJ Hero 2 turntable at Gamestop on B/W launch day, and I noticed a few 20+ year olds too shy to actually say they wanted Pokémon. There were a few that were just pointing at the games on the shelves with their chins.
