    why
    I've been planning on getting a japanese import Pokemon Black DSI (far cheaper than getting a US one, talking about $200-400 vs ~$80 difference) and considering i live in a U region, i'd have to go with imports or get region free working, is the AK2I region free?

    It probably is, but I'm just making sure in case

    It's supposed to be a region free flashcard. They are relative cheap so you could check it out by yourself.

    The acekard 2i should definitely work. Just look at this video for proof.

    all ds games are region free and by extension ds flashcards too. just make sure you have the latest firmware installed to bypass the 1.4.1 block

    Okay, now that i have a DSI arriving in the mail, I know that it's set to japanese language only, will that affect the acekard or any games i play? I can't read japanese at all.

    It will. The games that rely on the system settings language will be affected.

    Pokemon DS Games are region free, because are NDS Titles, not DSi Titles.
    So still you can play it in any DS system. i have Japanese PKMN Black with my usa new 3ds, no problem running that game.

    He is asking if a japanese pokemon themed dsi works with flashcards, not about the pokemon games.

    Between insane and insecure
    The DS was always region-free, the DSi added region-locking and DSi-enabled games had the option to apply it to their games.
    The AK2i only ran in DS-Mode, so all games will be region-free, even on the DSi
