Do you know if it's possible to use Pro Controller bought in USA/Canada on the Wii U bought in Europe? I want to get the white one but it's unobtainable in Poland and I came up with an idea of asking my Canadian relatives to send me one. I know that Wii U gamepad, Wii U itself and its games are region-locked but is the Pro Controller locked too?

Hmmm... I don't know. I would assume because the GamePad is region-locked that it's the same for the Pro Controller.

But I just don't know.

The Gamepad is region locked but I haven't read or heard anything about the pro controller being region locked. Considering its just a standard wireless controller its highly unlikely its region locked.

Nope. EUR Wii U Pro Controllers are *NOT* region locked. Just bought one off eBay and it works just fine. 100% with every game I've played it on. I'm guessing just the GamePad is region locked since you still have to use that along with the Wii U Pro Controller to even get into the home menus, etc. So, feel free to buy whichever one you wish!
