I am a little confused about the background story. Why are the English Idl's sold mainly in Indonesia, or somewhere in south Asia, not Japan? And plus it's mainly for people in Hong Kong cause they don't speak Japanese.

And just so you know, I am Asian, you can tell just by looking at my name.

Well, it's not exclusive to the IDLs, previous versions of tamagotchis that came from Hong Kong or Indonesia had Japanese shells but English guts. You pretty much answered your own question though, there isn't much demand for English IDLs in Japan whereas in other countries (like Indonesia or whatnot) there is more demand. Also, why pay more for an English tama which isn't your native language when you can get one that IS but for much cheaper.

They are made for the Asian market and are manufactured in China by Bandai Asia, not Japan. It just happened that these countries have received a large amount of them.

 

They are expensive because sellers have taken advantage of the demand - and people are still willing to buy anyway. :P
