    Sorry, I know there are 100 Sun and Moon threads asking the same thing - I've read through a lot of them and the topic of playing in Europe before release has been brought up but I haven't found a definitive answer. Does anyone know what the situation is?

    Yes this is ok. In France, all shops start yesterday to sell the game with the authorization of Nintendo France.

    Remember the french eShop may not released yet. Nintendo of Europe didn't change the release Date.
    I think if they see you playing the european eShop version (may they see where u are on the internet or your region) before the 23.11. they could ban you. Physical cartridge is safe wherever you are.

    Australia is in the same region and the eshop game was released too. :/
    It is possible if you change your region to Australia on an european 3ds (without hack) to get the game on eshop... So...

    Of course, but most of us got a non Australian NNID linked to their console for poke bank etc.
    They see you are playing online with the digital version (you send no header, but console specific IDs). They see you got a european (non Australian) NNID connected to your device. They count 1+1 together. I will stay offline until 23.11
