I've been having lots of fun with Pokemon Y. I'm in the middle of adventuring, and all of a sudden, the PSS tells me about this new feature...that I already knew about, and have used. Looking through the options available, I don't see any setting that turns this off.

How can I inform the PSS that I am aware of the features it offers, and to stop alerting me to them?

I thought I was the only one annoyed by this :/. I think you can restrict who can message you (having the internet turned on I seem to get a trade/battle request every 10 mins or so), but I haven't seen an option to turn off the "help" text – Robotnik Oct 15 '13 at 0:46
The only way I have been able to get these to stop is by either turning off my wireless on my 3DS or just by scrolling over to another screen, like the training screen. – C-dizzle Oct 15 '13 at 20:23
Still doesn't shut up in ORAS – gitsitgo Jan 29 '15 at 16:41

I don't think you can, but you can switch to Super Training or Pokemon Aime when you are not using it

In Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire you can go to the bottom right side of the page and click on the back sign to exit the PSS screen.

Well the way I made it shut up was to just go on the add and use it I don't know about you but I also have Y and that is what worked for me.
