Ok so I'm not clear on what makes a Pokemon considered as "foreign" for the purposes of Masuda Method breeding?
Now, before you refer to http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Masuda_method that page is not clear about what makes a region.
1. So for instance, if I started a JPN language save file of X&Y in a North American region cartridge, and I trade that Pokemon to an ENG language save file in a North American region cartridge, is that a foreign Pokemon? Or do I have to look for a Pokemon generated in a Japan region cartridge
2. Does Poketransfer change the region (not language) of Pokemon? If I had a Japanese Pokemon (say, Ditto) in a North American region cartridge B2W2, and I Poketransferred it to my North American region cartridge X&Y does it stop being foreign?
EDIT 3. (thanks Immortal, this is a better question than #1, seems that it's unanimous that people think Language settings may not matter) What determines country of origin for purposes of Masuda Method?
a. DS/3DS country setting? So if I have a North American region 3DS, but set my country/region to something like Brazil/Sao Paulo, is it a foreign Pokemon when I trade it to a X&Y cart playing on a 3DS with US/California country/region?
b. DS/3DS region lock setting?
c. X&Y cartridge region lock setting?
d. X&Y cartridge language setting?
