    Good evening!

    I had a question about the video games between regions. The black and white in the rules state:

    1. Game Versions
    Only legitimate versions of Pokémon X or Pokémon Y can be used in Play! Pokémon tournaments. This includes
    downloadable versions of Pokémon X or Pokémon Y. Players are restricted on which region Game Cards they can
    use, based on the country where they are playing.
     Players at European events may only use European Game Cards.
     Players at North American events may only use North American Game Cards.
     Players at the World Championships may only use Game Cards that are legal in their home markets.
    1.1. Game Systems
    Players may use any system in the Nintendo 3DS™ family of systems during the competition. This includes
    the Nintendo 3DS™, Nintendo 3DS XL™, and Nintendo 2DS™. Players are responsible for bringing a
    charger that is compatible with their system.
     Players at European events may only use systems in the European Nintendo 3DS™ family.
     Players at North American events may only use systems in the North American Nintendo 3DS™ family.
     Players at the World Championship

    But does this include active duty military? I'm in the continental USA right now, but I'm going to be stationed in Italy for 3 years. Do I have to go out and buy a new DS and a new copy of pokemon just to compete? Please let me know.

    Sadly it includes, US cartidges only work on US consoles, because of the format. (Generally with every console it's the same). If you go to a real life event and they give away an item or something, you'll only be able to get it if you have that continent's console. You will still be able to participate on online tournaments and events, and you WILL be able to play against people with the other version. Now, I'm not sure if they'll let you register for a tournament but I don't see the problem unless they have digital rewards for the console. Hope this still helps. although don't believe so in your case, it may help another reader with similar issues.
