    Nds games aren't region locked, so yes.

    However I read you can't trade pokemon with the UK version if the other person has the USA version, vice versa. (cartridge wise not the handheld)

    Yeah, but technically it isn't a DS game. It's a DSi-enhanced game.

    From what I've heard, they do work, but they don't run in DSi mode.

    Please correct me if I'm wrong.

    DSi games are region-locked, though.

    Also, it's been confirmed that the EU region game of Pokemon White/Black (despite being a DSi-enhanced game) is not region-locked on the 3DS. As for the US version of Pokemon Black, I'm not sure.

    I got the US Pokemon Black and I have a European DSi XL. To my surprise, it actually worked. My guess is that the opposite should also apply even on a 3DS.

    Any version of pokemon b/w except the japanese version aren't region locked on DSi consoles, strange but true.
