After recently laying trading plans, the question was brought up if it is possible to trade Pokémon from an English cartridge to a Japanese. 2nd Generation was 'no,' is 3rd Generation any different?

If this topic exists somewhere, I apologize.

It has been asked before yes.... but
The GBA versions can trade amongst each other regardless of language..... The gamecube versions however only trade with their corresponding language/region.

Ah, thank you very much! I appreciate the answer; now it just stands to be discovered if GBA English to Japanese DS will work, haha.

I think this can be closed unless anyone has information on the latter subject.

Their are two things.

The Japanese version has a 5 character limit, so it will cut off the name of your Pokemon if it's longer. It will still be in English.

And Pokemon that are sent to the english version will have their names in Japanese.

DS and GBA can't trade?
Or did you mean to trade your pokes to a Japanese Diamond/Pearl?

We're talking about GBA to GBA, not to the DS. It's unknown if you can trade a English GBA Pokemon to the Japanese DP.

Thanks for the information about the names, Kojiro.

And yeah, my second question, which probably can't be answered yet, is whether I can trade my English Emerald Pokémon with Japanese Diamond.

Yes you will be able, I see no reason not to. The games are supposed to go Wi-Fi, so you need to be able to do cross-region trading.

I had some japaneese pokemon traded over to my US Leaf Green, they still come as their Japaneese names, it appears as a nickname. Also, they have funny spaces inbetween the letters if you use the english letters in the JPN version.
