Masuda method is a way to breed shiny Pokemon using a pair of Pokemon with one of them foreign. I know as much as this, but I really don't get what is considered "foreign".

I am trying to breed a shiny deino. My Pokemon omega ruby is bought in the US but the language is set to korean. I captured a deino in omega ruby, and trasnferred a zweilous from an ENGLISH white version 2. Would masuda method work with these two Pokemons? Ive read articles sayin the language does not matter, and that I need my game card to be a foreign game so the Pokemon can be "foreign".

My zweilous does have the ENG in the black box, which tells me it is foreign, but I'm just worried I might not be doing it right. Would masuda method work with my deino and zweilous?

It should.

The way Masuda Method is usually described, the "foreign" tag bit is usually misinterpreted. It doesn't matter what language the cartridge is using, only the languages of the 2 Pokemon in question. If they carry different language tags, Masuda Method applies.
