Is there a way to install e-shop software from a different region then the one your DS is from/running?

I have a N3DS running 11.1.0-43J with a9lh + lumaDS and I would like to get the english version of the virtual console Pokémon Yellow and Pokebank.

Is it possible?

Only change region, but you lose access to eShop. I have N3DS LL changed region to USA
i can't use eshop and pokebank
Why u not use pkhex to export pokemons ?

I have Japanese Green running on my US 2DS, no region change. However, the other Pokemon VC games (RBY) are region free, so they'll match the region of the system. You may be able to use Luma3DS's region emulation feature (or LumaLocaleSwitcher) to change the VC games to play in English. You can't use the US Poke Bank, as it would need the US eShop + a US NNID.

EDIT: Just used freeShop on my Japanese n3DS (a9lh+11.3) to download Pokemon Yellow. In freeShop, look for the "Pokemon(TM) Yellow Version". I can confirm it plays in English, even on a Japanese system. The Japanese version of Yellow isn't on freeShop.

    @Xzi Thanks for the feedback! I'm planing to make alot more music for each of the levels, so it don't get so repetitive! And working on some graphical upgrade ideas!

    Do you use 8bit equipment for the music and FL studio
  • RichardTheKing @ RichardTheKing:
    I did notice one particularly bad bit of text formatting (and minor typo): in the UFO fight, when trying to shoot at the bottom, it says "Looks like the UFO have some kinda shield" - "has" is better. Also, the very next text box has "L et's try shooting the top instead!" with a line break in the word "Let's".

    Oh, and I have no idea how to get past this gap - it's too close to the roof. https://imgur.com/A2mYGPy

    @kenenthk I used OpenMPT to make all the music. My brother will be helping out with some more tunes in the future!
  • KimKong @ KimKong:
    @RichardTheKing Thank you so much for pointing out that dialog bug!! I never noticed it while finishing up these new boss fights..

    And that gap on that level should be close enough to jump if you run? I might have to lower that platform a bit maybe?

    Thanks so much for the feedback!! You are awesome!!
