The new Friend Safari in Pokemon X and Y is a cool way to catch rare Pokemon as well as connect with fellow Trainers.
Friend Safari Zone
The Friend Safari Zone in Pokémon X and Y is different from any previous generation’s Safari Zone. Some key differences include battling with the wild Pokémon, using your own Poké Balls and needing to exchange Nintendo 3DS Friend Codes with people in order to unlock more Pokémon. Kiloude City, which is only accessible after defeating the Elite Four and obtaining the TMV Pass from Professor Sycamore, houses this new Friend Safari Zone.
Pokémon Within the Friend Safari Zone
The Pokémon found within the new Friend Safari Zone depend on the amount of Friend Codes you’ve exchanged with other people. The Pokémon found in the Friend Safari Zone are all at level 30 and have a small chance of knowing their respective Hidden Ability. The chance of the Pokémon knowing its Hidden Ability are increased when you and your friend are online at the same time. The Pokémon found in the Friend Safari are not exclusive to either X or Y. For example, you can find Spritzee in your Friend Safari in Pokémon X even though it is normally exclusive to Pokémon Y. Pokémon caught within the Friend Safari will have two of their IVs maxed out at 31. This is very good for those who want to IV breed one of these Pokémon.
Exchanging Nintendo 3DS Friend Codes
It does not matter whether the people you exchange Friend Codes with own Pokémon X and Y or not. As long as they have a Friend Code to exchange, it will unlock a new Type Zone and two specific Pokémon (a third Pokémon being unlocked if they own Pokémon X or Y AND after the Elite Four is defeated). The Pokémon each person unlocks and their Type are permanent and cannot be changed. Each person has their own corresponding Type and three specific Pokémon that his or her Friend Code will unlock. For example, my Friend Code will unlock a Psychic-type zone, inhabited by Espurr and Grumpig (I will update this post with my third Pokémon after I defeat the Elite Four).
In short: Exchange Friend Codes with as many people as possible, whether they own Pokémon X and Y or not. This will increase your chances of unlocking more Zones and more rare Pokémon.

Three Leaked Legendary Pokémon
These three Legendary Pokémon have been leaked by a hacker. So far, there is no official statement from the Pokémon Company International, Game Freak or Nintendo regarding these three Pokémon.
Diancie is a Rock- and Fairy-type Pokémon, Volcanion is a Water- and Fire-type Pokémon and Hoopa is a Ghost- and Psychic-type Pokémon. Volcanion (in my speculation) might be the volcano Pokémon mentioned to occasionally visit Jaune Plaza in Lumiose City. Some speculate that it might be Heatran, but you never know. We’ll see what happens in the upcoming months.
The hacker also leaked pictures of a Mega Latios, Mega Latias and a different colored Floette. The fact that the Mega Latios and Mega Latias might have the exact same Mega form seems silly. Does that Floette look familiar to you?
“He was given a tiny box.”
Pokémon of the Episode: #466 Electivire
Electivire is classified as the Thunderbolt Pokémon. It can have the Abilities Motor Drive or the Hidden Ability Vital Spirit. It stands 5’11” (1.8m) and weighs 305.6 pounds (138.6kg). Electivire is Electric-type.
Elekid evolves into Electabuzz at level 30, then evolves into Electivire when traded while holding the Electirizer.
