    You can try. EU to U generally works. I'm not sure about this one though.

    Yup. So can Black to White. Except that with B/W it messes up the White Forest and Black City information and maps.

    I'm sure you can use the save, if not, just pokesav your pokemon to it.

    This is asked every generation and I believe the answer yes even if your game was translated.

    I checked with Black and White, by just changing the save file: No issues detected.
    You cannot synchronize (Manteinance), but the rest of the features is working allright.

    1. You cannot retrieve data from Global Link (you cannot use Game Sync)
    2. The pokedex works perfectly, but in the Unova Dex, only the english names are shown (not japanese ones, as one in the national Dex)
    -
    from all those data, no issues.

    The only issues with region-switching saves is the region setting in the savefile. According to Pokesav, the .sav is assigned a region, while each Pokemon are also assigned regions. And AFAIK, Black/White only has the region setting in the Pokemon, so the only issues are the names that your Pokemon have (and maybe you'll get the foreign Pokedex entries, but B/W doesn't have those either AFAIK and that's not really an issue anyways).

    EDIT: And almost forgot. If you have already connected to Wi-Fi, then it has assigned you a Japanese friendcode. You won't be able to use Wi-Fi in that case.

    I have a copy of pokesav for the Japanese rom. But I don't know how this'll work. I will probably find copies of White and Black in the US but me and my brother want to keep all the pokemon and progress we have. I wonder if I'll have to get the english copy of Pokesav for B/W?
