Exactly. And the new Victini skin could back that up. But, it also seems that skins aren't region-locked. I didn't think they would, anyways.

Exactly. It's simply overwritten when new data is downloaded.

Why couldn't they use it? I don't understand your logic. They just send out a compressed image and decompress it when it's downloaded/saved/loaded/whatever.
I think that that situation applies here- we need to see that compression method. I'm going to look at my Black save and see what I can find, seeing as I have the Pikachu skin in it.
