The Friend Safari is a new feature introduced in Pokémon X and Pokémon Y that encourages the adding of friends using the Nintendo 3DS's Friend System. This system rewards players with many friends by allowing them to catch even more Pokémon in the post-game of X and Y. Pokémons caught in the Friend Safari are Level 30 and are guaranteed to have perfect (31) IV's in at least two stats.
If the person has not defeated the Elite Four, only the first 2 Pokémons can be found. However, if this task is completed, a third Pokémon will now be unlocked.
Additionally, if the player and a friend have been online at the same time in Pokémon X and Y (their face will be shown on the Player Search System), the player gains access to his friend's third Pokémon and there is a chance that Pokémons in their Friend Safari will have their Hidden Ability. The chance of finding a Pokémon with its hidden ability is increased when the player and his friend are both online.
Finally, Pokémons are assigned to a person's 3DS Friend Code rather than the save file or cartridge. Each 3DS Friend Code is assigned one of the 18 types and will host 2-3 Pokémons in his Friend Safari.
The Player can access the Friend Safari post-game in Kiloude City.
