    I live in the UK so I'm thinking of importing the new Pokemon game from America but is it possible for American Region games to play in my DS ?
    So sorry if this has been asked .

    Thanks anyway

    Sure is! The DS is region free so US games are good to go on the UK DS.

    I think the only games that aren't are Chinese games, something to do with the firmware chip for Chinese writing.

    All of Nintendo's portable systems have been regionless. It's only fair, considering they're designed for travel.

    This reminds me, i've got to get round to ordering US copies of Pheonix Wright 3 and Apollo Justice since i'll probably fossilize before they show up here.
