My question is the thread title....

Are the amiibo cards region locked?
I've been looking to get the two that I really want (Pudge & Clyde) from eBay, but the only ones up so far are all North America ones.
Would that cause an issue on my EU console and game?

This is a very good question, I'd like to know too. Since UK only get packs of 3 and America 6, I thought I could just order a pack of 6 from overseas, where they are most likely cheaper.

Considering that the amiibo figures are not region-locked, it's unlikely that the amiibo cards would be, but only time will tell.

I've been watching someone on Youtube play the game and he has both Japanese and NA cards that he plays with on his game so I am pretty sure they are not region locked

No the cards are not region locked.

I was going to buy the complete series 2 from Japan, the only thing stopping me is that the names are in Japanese and I'd rather they match my series 1 set.

I wanted to know this as I am getting the game and the new 3DS soon.
Plenty of sellers on eBay are selling ALL the cards individually and by sets, new and used. But I don't won't to spend money on an item that will be useless.

The consoles and games are now region coded, so I thought they would be too.
Are you sure they're region free?

Totally. You can use japanese cards on a european console if you want, no problem with that.

Nope! I bought some cards back when I was in Japan, and once the American version came out I was able to use them just fine. ^^

Thank Heaven they're not region locked.
I recently purchased many of the non playing characters from series 2 and 4 on eBay from a reliable Japanese vendor on e-Bay and they work just fine. Not just that but the name of the character when downloaded appears in its American version.
