Fans of Pokemon X and Y could benefit from Friend Safari. This is adding your friends to the Safari and here are some of the things that you need to know.
You need to add people to the list of friends in your 3DS list. This does work both ways as you need them to add you back, because if not they won’t show up in your safari.
If you want to unlock a 3rd Pokemon along with Hidden abilities or Dream world then when you have added each other you have to meet through the Pokemon Player Search System.
To make sure that you do this right you should go to your friend safari and then check their icon. If you cannot see a “?” you can see a 3rd Pokemon in their list. However your friends must do battle with the Elite 4 and win.
If you cannot see them in your friends list or they show up as passerby or Acquatainces, this is a bug and you need to turn off 3DS wireless and then turn it back on again.
You can see a Google Doc list of Pokemon players online along with their names, safari type and the FC. You can also list yourself by giving details from above.
