I downloaded Home from the Japanese Eshop, so I thought that was why.

I like having foreign pokemon for lotto and masuda method breeding options and faster breeding in same species.

It's only the Pikachu that's locked to JP language. Everything else is based on the language you set.

I was told that it was updated to distribute as ENG around 6 hours ago? Last night it was definitely JP and I have JP myself, but my friend claimed this morning and got an ENG one.

Why does it matter? I guess it doesn't bother non-English users as much since we are used seeing various languages?

My guess is it's for novelty and to introduce the concept of trading with other language games (if you aren't familiar with it yet).

Is that so? I guess it was an oversight then and this will become a collectible in the future ("the rare day one Japanese Pikachu")

I'm not complaining. The IV seems pretty good(?), but really it's a foreign Pikachu (I hope) which will help me and other who have it for a Shiny Pikachu breeding! So I welcome it.
