For each friend code you have registered, you can go on a different safari that allows you the chance to catch specific Pokemon. The variety increases based on the number of registered friends that also play Pokemon X and Y. The Friend Safari is a quick and easy way to build your Pokedex.

  • Getting Eevee

    You can only catch a wild Eevee on Route 10. Walk around on the grass and flowers for a 5% to 10% chance of encountering an Eevee. When you encounter an Eevee, weaken its health, and then catch it with a Pokeball. Note: You can do this before defeating the Elite 4.

  • Getting Glaceon and Leafeon

    To evolve an Eevee into a Glaceon or Leafeon, you must be standing next to Ice Rock or Moss Rock when leveling it up. Ice Rock can be found first; it is located in the deepest part of the Frost Cavern (the cave is not too large). Moss Rock is found closer to the end the quest to defeat the Elite 4. It is on Route 20, between Snowbelle City and the Pokemon Village. Enter the area from Snowbelle to immediately see it.

  • Getting the Legendary Birds

    After defeating the Elite 4, one of the three Legendary Birds from the original Pokemon Red and Blue will start appearing throughout Kalos. The bird that appears depends on your starter. If you chose Froakie, it will be Moltres. If you chose Chespin, it will be Articuno. If you chose Fennekin, it will be Zapdos. After encountering one of the birds, check its entry in your Coastal Kalos Pokedex. It will show the bird's current location. You must walk (not fly) to the location and challenge the bird again. After fleeing several times, the bird will eventually retreat to Sea Spirit's Den, finally allowing you the chance to catch it.

  • Getting Lightning Rod Pikachu without Friend Safari

    Get a Male Plusle with Lightning Rod from a Horde on Route 5, and get a female Pikachu from Route 3 or Santalune Forest. Note: Have a Pokemon with Static to attract more. Put the female Pikachu in the daycare with the male Lightningrod Plusle. Breed a Pikachu until it has Lightning Rod.

  • Getting Mewtwo

    Defeat the Elite 4, then return to Pokemon Village. Cross a small stream on the western side using the Surf HM to reach a cave entrance. Mewtwo will be inside immediately after entering the cave. At first, a man will block the cave entrance, but he will disappear once you defeat the Elite 4. Mewtwo is Level 70; use a Master Ball to easily capture him, otherwise it will be a long battle and require a lot of Ultra Balls. As soon as you capture him, you will also get the special stone needed to activate Mewtwo's Mega Evolution.

  • Getting Pikachu

    Pikachu can be found very early in Route 3, immediately after the forest, in small grass patches. Pikachu is a great early Pokemon. He has high special attack and speed stats that give him an advantage early in the game. His special characteristic, Static, works very well early in the game by paralyzing Pokemon that come in contact with him. Pikachu also levels up very quickly early in the game with a lot of bird type Pokemon in the grinding areas. He is overall a great addition to any team early in the game.

  • Getting Sylveon

    To get a Sylveon, you must max out all three stats (Affection, Fullness, and Enjoyment) for an Eevee to evolve it into a Sylveon. To max out all stats for an Eevee, keep petting it and playing the mini-games. It should take approximately one hour to max out all the stats for the Eevee using this method. Note: Make sure to teach the Eevee a Fairy move before leveling it into the Sylveon.

  • Getting Zygarde

    Defeat the Elite 4, then return to Terminus Cave, which is located just off Route 18. The Terminus Cave is one of the longest dungeons in Pokemon X/Y; thus, make sure to have lots of healing items and strong Pokemon before entering it. Zygarde is found in the lowest level of the cave, which is only unlocked after defeating the Elite 4. There are also a few rare items in the lowest level of the cave. Zygarde is Level 70 and dual Dragon and Ground-type; use a Master Ball to easily capture him, otherwise it will be a long battle and require a lot of Ultra Balls.

  • Infinite Heart Scales

    Heart Scales can be used to teach your Pokemon moves you forgot or never learned at the Move Relearner in Dendemille Town. To get Heart Scales in Pokemon X and Y, you need the Old Rod from Ambrett Town in the Aquarium by the Magikarp Statue and TM46 (Thief), from Cassius's house in Camphier Town. Use the Old Rod on Route 8 - Muraille Coast to battle Luvdiscs, which have a 50% chance of dropping a Heart Scale. Keep fishing for an unlimited amount of Heart Scales. Note: Change spots if Luvdisc does not take the bait.

  • Easy Rare Candy and PP Ups

    Select the "Wonder Trade" option, and trade any desired Pokemon to earn some Poke Miles. You get more Poke Miles based on how far away the person you are trading with is from your location. Keep trading the Pokemon you got in Wonder Trade to get more Poke Miles. Use the Poke Miles at the Mileage Club (old man in the white suit) in the Pokemon Center (on South Boulevard) in Lumiose City to buy Rare Candy (500 Poke Miles) and PP Up (1,000 Poke Miles). Rare Candy allows you to increase a Pokemon to the next level, which is very use when they are at a very high level. The PP Up allows you to add an additional move so you can use more moves in battle.

  • Easy money

    First, get the Amulet Coin. It can be found on the second floor of Parfum Palace, in front of a fireplace. It doubles the Pokedollars you earn from battles. Note: If you lost your Amulet Coin, you can also use a Luck Incense, which can be purchased at one of the Pokemon Centers. Then, start battling every trainer at the Battle Chateau. The goal is to rank up as quickly as possible -- so battle everyone (this is difficult without strong Pokemon). Next, buy the best writs possible. You can only have one of each type of writ active at a time -- so make sure you have the best ones active. You must also buy writs every day. When you start, it will probably be very expensive (writs are 50,000 or 100,000 Pokedollars each), but they are worth it. This trick allows you to earn millions of Pokedollars every day. You can use all the money you earn to buy everything at Boutique Couture and easily win at Sushi High Roller.

    Go into a one star restaurant in Lumiose City if you have lower level Pokemon. The Pokemon in there will always be at Level 10. You will get approximately 2,000 Pokedollars for each battle, and lots of tiny mushrooms (between 15 and 20), which you can sell for more money at the PokeMart. If you have higher level Pokemon, go to a two star restaurant. The Pokemon in there will always be at Level 31. You will get approximately 4,000 Pokedollars for each battle, other than the battle with the owner, which you will get almost 10,000 Pokedollars. You will also get many big mushrooms (between 15 and 20) for battles, which you can sell for a lot of money at the PokeMart. Note: In different restaurants, the "meals" (Pokemon battles) differ (from triple battles to rotation battles). It tells you how many turns to use before defeating the trainer. It costs 15,000 Pokedollars to get into a triple battle or rotation battle at a two star restaurant, and 2,000 Pokedollars to get into a triple battle or rotation battle at a one star restaurant. However, it is worth the price for what you get in return. Additionally, make sure to have either the Amulet Coin or Prize Money O-Power, or you will receive a lot less money.

    In Anistar City, there is an old man who wants to relax with one of your Level 5 or lower Pokemon. He will say he has been lonely for a long time and wants a friend to be with for a few days. Give him any Pokemon you own that is under Level 5. Then, check back after a few days, and all that will be in his home is a Pokeball that your Pokemon is in. Attached to the Pokeball is a note from the old man that says he is proud to have met someone as nice as you, and thanks you for letting him spend his last few days of life with your Pokemon. He will also leave behind a Comet Shard that can be sold for a lot of money in Lumiose City.

    Go to the 3 star restaurant, and equip the Pokemon in front with the Amulet Coin. All the Balm Mushrooms you get will easily earn you a lot of money.

  • Easy Shiny Pokemon

    Put Talonflame (or any Flame Body/Magma Armor Pokemon, but Talonflame has Fly) in the first slot. Get a lot of eggs from the Daycare. Depending on how you want to use this trick, you may want to get 20 to 30 eggs from the daycare and put them in your PC. Fly to the middle of Lumiose City (Prism Tower), and get on your bike. Next, gently slip a dime underneath the control stick so it is pushed in one direction. Your character should automatically ride in a circle around the tower. Then, leave the game for a bit and do something else while you wait for a Shiny Pokemon to hatch. Repeat this trick until you get a Shiny Pokemon. Note: You will have to press A to hatch each egg.

  • Easy breeding/hatching

    After getting an egg or several eggs from breeders, go to Prism Tower in Centrico Plaza in Lumiose City. While outside of the tower, hold Left or Right to start an infinite loop without worrying about random battles. You can use a piece of tape to hold down the direction. Note: The time for hatching will be cut in half when you have a Pokemon with the Flame Body ability in your party.

  • Easy party healing

    Start a Wi-Fi battle. Once an opponent accepts, you can either complete the battle or quit (quitting is not recommended since it will count as a lose on your record and you will also probably anger the other player). Once you return to the map after the battle, your whole party will be completely healed (HP and PP).

  • Easy battles

    View the type matchup chart for Pokemon X and Y to help win battles more easily.

  • Easy training

    Use an Opower while training in a restaurant in Lumiose. The Opower does not run out after three minutes, but instead works until you complete the restaurant.

  • Easy nature selection

    To use this trick, you first must have a full party before starting the battle with the Professor. After you have defeated him, you will be able to select your starter, and the Professor will say to send a Pokemon to your box to make room for your starter. Tell him "No" (or press B), and he will hold on to your chosen starter until you decide to collect it. He will then continue with the normal conversation. Once you gain control of you character, you can save and ask the Professor for your starter. You will then be able to select a Pokemon to send to the box, and he will give you the one you chose. If you do not like the nature of it, soft reset Pokemon X/Y (press L + R + Start + Select). Then, load your saved game, select your box Pokemon, and scroll through a couple lines of text to be able to check the nature of your new starter. Repeat this trick until you get an Adamant Charmander or the desired nature for your starter Pokemon. Note: You cannot select a different starter after using this trick. The Professor will always be holding onto the Pokemon you previously chose.

  • Breeding guide

    Watch the following video to learn how to breed Pokemon and get perfect Natures and IVs.

  • Secret background battle items

    Sometimes during battle, there will be various objects in the background, including trees in the field and rock formations in caves. These background objects can actually be destroyed to release an item. It seems the various objects react to specific ranged attacks. While Surf may work on one object, it will not work on another, and other moves such as Earthquake will not effect the same object Surf does. Some of the known moves that work are Air Cutter, Heat Wave, Pedal Blizzard, Razor Leaf, Rock Slide, Surf, and Twister.

  • Finding harder Pokemon

    There are three cafes around Kalos that you must pay to enter. Each available seat you can choose in the cafes will allow you to talk to someone who will show you Pokemon for your Pokedex. The 100 price option shows you one Pokemon. The 1,000 price option shows you two Pokemon. The 5,000 price option only shows you one Pokemon, but it is guaranteed to be one you have never seen. You can only use each one once per day.

  • Free daily items and new activities

    Advance the system time to 23:59, and wait one minute.

  • Instant trainer change

    Send a red Writ of Challenge, then advance the system time by one hour to change trainers without having to wait.

  • Infinite Write time

    Turn the system time back before midnight.

  • Finding the Birds

    You must encounter Moltres, Zapdos, or Articuno twelve times before they go to the Sea Spirits Cave.

  • Getting eggs from the Daycare

    If the man at the Daycare has an egg for you, he will be facing the road. If he does not have an egg for you, he will be looking at the Daycare. This allows you to determine if the man has an egg without having to talk to him.

  • New clothing

    The items in the boutiques are the only way to get new clothes for your avatar, and their stock changes daily. You can find boutiques in the following cities:

      Anistar City
      Cyllage City
      Laverre City
      Santalune City
      Snowbelle City

  • Choosing starter Pokemon

    When choosing your first Pokemon, you can choose between Fire (Fennekin), Water (Froakie), and Grass-type (Chespin). However, each one will also get a second affinity once they reach their third (final) evolution. Fennekin's (Delphox) is Psychic-type, Fraokie's (Greninja) is Dark, and Chespin's (Chesnaught) is Fighting-type. Thus, keep this in mind when building your party, as you do not want to waste time raising a Psychic Pokemon if you chose Fennekin and he is already going to eventually fill that role in your party.

  • Using Exp. Share

    When Exp. Share is enabled, it distributes experience to your entire party, with the Pokemon who actually participated in the battle getting slightly more. Once you setup a party of six Pokemon, enable the "Exp. Share" option to ensure all your Pokemon evenly level up. This is also helpful to leveling up weaker party members without having to constantly switch them in and out of battles.

  • Stat raising Smeargle

    Sketch the following moves for a stat raiser:

      Coil + Calm Mind + Agility + Baton Pass
      Coil = Atk, Def, Accuracy +1 each
      Calm Mind = Sp.Atk, Sp.Def +1 each
      Agility = Speed +2
      Baton Pass = Pass Stats to teammate

  • Skating tricks

    Successfully complete the indicated task at the listed location to perform the corresponding trick:

      360: At Lumiose City on Estivel Avenue, rotate the Circle Pad quickly to spin while moving.
      Back Flip: At Lumiose City on North Boulevard, go over a ledge at high speed to do a back flip.
      Parallel Swizzle: At Lumiose City on South Boulevard, tilt the Circle Pad in the opposite direction to turn in that direction quickly while gaining speed.
      Running Start: At Lumiose City in Vert Plaza, start running with the D-pad, then switch to the skates with the Circle Pad to gain more speed.
      Cosmic Flip: At Lost Hotel, after learning the other four tricks, gain enough speed while going on a ledge.

  • Special birthday message

    Change the date in your 3DS profile to your birthday, then enter a Pokemon Center to be greeted with confetti and birthday wishes from the nurse. The music will change to a music-box version of the Pokemon Center theme, and a digital birthday cake will be displayed on the wall.

  • Ghost

    There is an unmarked building on the outer edge of Lumiose. If you talk to the clerk, she will say she does not know why this building is here. Go to the second floor to find a ghost that will appear behind you.

  • Dragon Ball Z references

    Go to Route 6, 7, or 10, and a random Psychic Pokemon trainer should eventually challenge you. After you defeat him, he will say "Wow! You and your Pokemon's power levels are incredible! They're over 9,000 for sure!".

    There is someone in the game that will say something like "Do you think all Mega Pokemon have Spiky Hair?"

  • HarmoKnight reference

    Talk to the man in the Pokemon Center in Shalour City. He will tell you about a game he is playing where a "cool little dude runs around and whacks enemies to the beat of the music". This is a reference to HarmoKnight, which was also created by the same developer.

  • Muhammad Ali reference

    During training on the punching bags in Super Training, you are told to "Float like a Butterfree, sting like a Beedrill".

  • Nintendo 3DS and Wii U references

    Select the girl trainer. She will get out of bed with a Pikachu Nintendo 3DS XL in her hand and a white Nintendo Wii U on the floor. It is the same for the boy trainer, but instead he has a black Nintendo Wii U on the floor of his bedroom.

  • Professor Oak's grandson reference

    An NPC in a Pokemon Center in Lumiose City - Magenta Plaza will refer to Professor Oak's grandson and his famous "Smell ya later" line when he leaves. His name is Blue in the English versions, and Green in Japanese versions. He is known as Gary in the anime series.

  • Reggie Fils-Aime reference

    After progressing through Victory Road, you will eventually meet a trainer who says "After all the training I've received here on Victory Road, my body is ready." This is a reference to Nintendo of America's president, Reggie Fils-Aime, who is known for saying "My body is ready."
