Is the Masuda method still in place in X and Y?

My Illogical Theory

The Masuda Method will probably only be accomplished with two different-region cartridges, instead of two different-language cartridges. However, I may be wrong - it just seems rather nationalist for it to not. But obviously if it is then Game Freak probably meant no harm.
