StreetPass provides you with an amount of PokéMiles (PM) for each person you've met who is also playing a StreetPass enabled X or Y. PokéMiles can be traded in for items at the Lumiose City Pokémon Center. Alternatively, you can redeem them at the Pokémon Global Link website via the Game Sync feature of the PSS; the prices there are lower than in Lumiose, ...

No - StreetPass will not work if a (regular) DS title is suspended. StreetPass will definitely occur if a 3DS title is suspended with the system on, closed, and transmitting wireless. (I've had this happen with Ocarina of Time.) StreetPass will also often work when the system is open and you're actively playing. I've had this occur many many times ...

Pokemiles are calculated by the distance between your home location and the other player's home location. So by Streetpass, you're mostly getting people from...basically 0 miles away. Streetpass is generally pretty useless for Pokemon XY for this reason, and I would personally suggest ignoring it. If you want more, you could make sure to walk/drive past ...

I do not have any proof about the selection algorithm used (this may be impossible without seeing the source code), but when buying puzzle piece with Play Coins: You will never get a piece from a puzzle that you have completed. You will never get a piece from a puzzle that you haven't yet started. You will never get a StreetPass only piece (the pink ones). ...

In order to get Miis for use in Puzzle Swap, Find Mii and other games in StreetPass Mii Plaza, you must StreetPass with another 3DS owner, which basically means you have to be in wireless range with their system for long enough for the two to realize each others' presence. Once you do this their Mii will appear in the two games. For Find Mii specifically, a ...

To activate StreetPass for the 3DS Sound app, tap on the StreetPass button on the lower left of the touch screen. The lower part of the screen will have a button that says StreetPass Off. Tap that and then tap the On button and Confirm to turn StreetPass on. This requires that you have at least one song in the StreetPass playlist. To achieve this, first you ...

You need the new games, as those are the only way to get Plaza Tickets (you get them for accomplishing various goals in each game - they are like rewards for gaining achievements). Once you have at least one of the new games, you can start earning tickets, and then can exchange them there for various outfits or hats for your Mii (they change apparently ...

Streetpass and Wi-Fi require exclusive use of the same radio - they can't both be on at the same time. If the 3DS is able to connect to the internet using a connection registered in your Internet Settings, it will do so automatically and disable Streetpass. Once internet connection is lost, it will switch back to Streetpass. Note that you can battle/trade ...

For every Shadow Link you encounter, one additional apple will grow on the tree, up to a maximum of twenty apples. Green apples are rarer. Red apples will restore one heart, while green apples will restore three. Apples can be consumed off the ground, or stored in a bottle for later use -- use the net to scoop them up. Apples can be retrieved after knocking ...

There is indeed a certain order in which you receive the items, up to a point. Afterwards, you receive one of the previously awarded items randomly. The order is as follows: First time: Nothing Second time: Balloon Third time: Balloon Fourth time: Pinwheel Fifth time: Bunny Balloon Sixth time: Bubble Wand Seventh time: Heart Balloon Eighth time: ...

I just wanted to add aside from the correct answer from Joe, I too have been having issues with the street pass function not working 100% of the time. When I first received my 3ds I would go over to my brothers house and it would instantly light up, but tonight when I went over it took a while and a little fiddling with to react. My honest opinion would be ...

The friend function is (probably) unrelated to the streetpass plaza. One person on my friends list has only appeared once in streetpass plaza - which was from when we set it up to begin with. Miis can come to the plaza from playing multiplayer with them in certain games, like mario kart 7. Note that these can not be used for the streetspass games ...

No. Here is a link that has a table of items that are not available for sale via StreetPass teams. Items that cannot be purchased via StreetPass Sword Missiletainn, Sol, Amatsu, Falchion, Exalted Falchion, Parallel Falchion, Mercurius, Tyrfing, Balmung, Mystletainn, Sol Katti, Ragnell Lance Luna, Gradivus, Gáe Bolg, Gungnir Axe ...

To get StreetPass data, you just have to have the StreetPass feature turned on for the game. You can have up to 12 games turned on for receiving StreetPass data at one time. You don't need the system on, or the cartridge for that game in the system. If you want to send StreetPass data to another game, you'll need that game in your 3DS. Therefore, ...

Streetpass relay points only store data from one system at a time for each game. Let's assume you and John only have Mii Plaza games in common. John tags the relay first, and it saves his data, but doesn't send him anything. Then you tag the relay and get John's data. If you tag the relay the next day and John has tagged it again in the meantime, you'll get ...

You can safely ignore the gathered StreetPass data for weeks at a time. Keep in mind, however, that while StreetPass Miis will wait patiently at your gate until you check it, that only 10 StreetPass tags can wait in line at a time. Also, if you encounter the same 3DS unit multiple times - Mii Plaza will acknowledge that you've tagged them more than once (and ...

From this article on GameFaqs: Hero Mode: It doesn't matter, whether the file is in Hero Mode or not. You can receive Shadow Links from a normal game in a Hero Mode file and vice versa. Only your name, equipment and medal count will be transmitted. However, the Shadow Links will deal four times the damage in Hero Mode. A purple ...

I know that at least for three of the last four puzzles, and also for the mario kart 7 one, I always spent a round number of coins, because I only had them to get. MK7, Mario Tennis Open and NSMB2 all cost exactly 200 play coins to get all 32 blue pieces. KIU cost 150. The only exception was Kirby 20th. That was 186. Ignoring the last one, I dont know of ...

While in the main menu/plaza, select your Mii and press A. Choose Mii Settings. Choose Edit Greeting. You will get the option to enter a new message and facial expression. You may also wish to review the Edit Profile option in Mii Settings. When others meet your Mii, they may be told one of the facts in this section in addition to your greeting.

I have gotten a StreetPass for a course pack that I don't have. Here's what it looks like: It's locked, just like those records which contain levels that I haven't beat yet. It displays the normal ???? for coins, and says Course pack not downloaded instead of where it normally says the course pack name. If I press "A" to challenge that record, I get an ...

Judging by the specifications in the manual, the recommended wireless distance is within 98 ft (30 m), in perfect circumstances, and "depending on surrounding conditions this distance may be less". if this is indeed speaking of the wireless technology used for things like StreetPass and the like, then you have quite the range, but the specs are unclear ...

Yes, it does require you to buy a new game. In the "Intro to Game Purchasing" it says: When you play them, you can find new Mii accessories and earn plaza tickets by achieving certain goals. Pleas not that plaza tickets aren't available in Find Mii, Find Mii II, or Puzzle Swap.

Another way to add Miis to the StreetPass-Plaza are special Miis. You can scan the QR-codes, to get the Miis and can send them to the plaza. They cannot be used for puzzles/find-mii though. Resident evil special miis: http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2011/09/get_your_special_resident_evil_miis_now Some other Miis: ...

SC = Super Combo meter (max 4 bars); UC = Ultra Combo meter (max 2 bars). You will get variants for each figure. Some will have SC and UC bars filled. If you have a figurine with one of these, it will have already one or more SC/UC parts ready to use right at the start of a StreetPass match. Only Power, Defense, and Speed can all be altered for a given ...

There are friend codes in the 3DS as well, you can access the friend utility from the main screen by tapping the orange smiley icon. You can add friends locally by connecting consoles via WiFi or by inputting their friend codes. On the Wii, Miis roamed between friend consoles as well so I believe this will also be the case.

Ok, I gave up on the puzzles (my heart bleeds) and started it anew. After a day I got via SpotPass the first puzzle with red tiles, and later the Kid Icarus-Puzzle. This time it didn't broke, it was all available in StreetPass-encounters. Only I had to start fresh. :-( I don't know, why it was broken in the first place, maybe some error while writing the ...
