What does SPA mean in Pokemon X?

I got a lvl 24 Sylveon from wonder trade, and when I checked it's summary I saw a little black box at the top that had the letters SPA in. What does this mean and should I be worried?

The SPA means that your Pokémon was originally from Spain. Foreign Pokémon all have 3 letters that indicate the country (i.e. JPN from Japan, ENG from England, etc.)

This is actually a great thing for a few notable reasons. First of all, foreign Pokémon get 1.7x experience from battling (compared to 1.5x from a traded Pokémon from within your country), and not only that, you can use the Masuda method to get a shiny Eevee (which is very valuable).

If the original game the Pokemon was in is spanish. Spa is another word for it. The only way you can obtain it is to get someone with a spanish game over wifi or someone else who does

Hope this helped!!!
