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 ...

No, the person you connected with in StreetPass will not see your updated mii UNTIL you can manage to connect with them again. This is because the 3DS StreetPass doesn't use the internet, and has no way of connecting unless you are in the radius of the other person's StreetPass, as it does not update live. As a matter of fact, Your mii won't update until the ...

As for part one of your question, the wifi antenna is wrapped around the touch screen as shown below:

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). ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

When the 3DS systems connect, all of the data that is going to be shared, is shared at that moment in the quick burst of data exchanged. Normally the light kicks on after a data exchange, but I've seen it lag at times. I'm not sure why. I've also had it not light up at all after a data exchange. I'm not sure what the contributing factors are in each case. ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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, ...

No. Here is a link that has a table of items that are not available for sale via StreetPass teams.

PokéMiles are used to obtain rarer items such as Rare Candies!

In my experience, you get rating opportunities if one of the following three things occur: The second time you meet someone. When you meet someone you've met before and they've changed their hat. An unknown criteria when you meet someone past the max number of times (currently 999). This one seems to have a pattern (maybe every 10?) but I don't know what ...

Just look for any songs on your computer anywhere. Left-click the mouse and then press save as, name it, find it, and move it to the SD card. There are sometimes SD card slots on the tower of a computer.

Streetpass works that way with some 3DS games, but not with regular DS games.

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.
