Default Region change and online access

Hello, I am living in the UK and Ive been playing 3ds games for awhile now. Im moving to Asia, though, and I wonder if the spotpass, or the online features (like gts and wonder trade, fc safari...etc) still work normally in countries like Cambodia or Vietnam or so, since I have never seen any players from those countries while playing pokemon x. Are they... Unavailable in those countries...? If by some fortunate chance they still do, will my region changes as well?

Thank you for your consideration.

Living in the US, and owning a EUR, ***, and NA 3DS, I can tell you without doubt that there are region specific applications and content.

Nintendo Video is one such application, though now the EUR service of Nintendo Video has been discontinued.

Since having my EUR 3DS, I have not received Spotpass information for the Streetpass Plaza, but I have received other Spotpass data, such as for Mario Kart.

You will not be able to play local multiplayer with anyone who has a console from a region other than the region of your system.

I do not know if this applies to the Pokemon X and Y games, since I am yet to purchase either a EUR, or *** edition of either game.
