    Help I'm thinking of importing Pokemon Black from the UK as I live in Austrailia and I would like to know weather The UK and Australia/NZ are in the same DSI regions.

    DS games and DSi features in DS games aren't region locked, so it doesn't matter.

    Only DSiware is region locked.

    most DSi-enhanced games come with a nice little *for region X DSi's only* notice on the back.
    as far as i know they have 3 regions for the DSi.
    Japan, Europe(includes australia and probably new zealand too), and USA(includes canada and south-america i think)
    so yes there is region locking, but european games do work on australian DSi's

    If the AUS DSi region lock falls under anywhere, it would be NA due to location. It would make no sense to make it of the European region.

    still, they fall under the european region.
    just look at any DSi-enhanced game sold in europe, and you can see a notice on the back of the box that it's only for european and australian DSi's.

    Australia is still part of the Commonwealth; perhaps that has some influence in it.

    Australia is it's own region. (along with the most obvious three)
    So no, Black and white won't work on a DSi but will on a DS phat/lite [​IMG]
