    Hi guys I'm planning to buy a DSI XL(used) but its japanese, so I just want to ask you guys a few questions if you don't mind [​IMG]

    1. Can I change the language's menu to english
    2. Can I play english ds games on it
    3. Is there a bypass for region lock
    4. I have a friend who plays pokemon on his ds lite, can I play with him over the wifi even though I have jap dsxl
    5. Is the acekard2i good enough?
    6. With the 3ds coming out can I still play on wifi?
    Thanks,
    I'm still searching for answers on google so I'm asking here to save up some time

    No, he can only play JP games. The DSi isn't region free and the only way to play games from other regions is through flashcarts. Nevermind.

    Crap, I was wrong. You can play English DS games on a Japanese DSiXL. That said, Black and White are DSi enhanced and will not work.

    Ah I see, two more questions please [​IMG]
    1. When I browse the net or battle something on pokemon is the language also japanese or will it change depending on the game?
    2. Can I play wifi battles with americans even if I have a japanese version of pokemon black since its region locked so I don't have a choice

    I'm studying jap anyway so I guess I won't be missing much on dsi ware soon
