    No it will not work, you must buy a Japanese version of R/S (which are on that site BTW).

    Have you actually tried? It's just a bit hard for me to believe, i've heard about someone who traded a japanese event pokemon to his english cart was that a lie or what? Can you trade between japanese & english carts but not english carts and japanese box?

    If that's a Japaneese game will it work on your Gamecube/TV?

    Freeloader only works to let a foreign disc play on your own gamecube. Pokemon advance games will only communicate with their respective language gamecube game so an english GBA game will not work with japanese box. This does mainly to do with the different country TV formats (PAL/NTSC) but also deals with language things, that beyond my understand, wll not link.
    You could however trade your USA GBA pokemon to a japanese GBA game and then upload to a Japanese box but I don't know anyone that desperate.

    You can do cross-lingual trading in the 3rd gen with no glitches.

    You can between the GBA games only... the gamecube games you have to trade to the same language one first.
    The only problem is that in japanese games they only have 5 spaces for names so an english name gets cut off and that trading a japanese one to an english one will result in a japanese named pokemon.
    It is this same technique that people used to get a legit celebi from the japanese colosseum bonus disc before the tour.
