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, 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 ...

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. ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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: ...

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 ...

According to GameFaqs: If you have the option turned on, and play Mario Kart 7 online every person you race will get in your Mii Plaza. Also any person that you tag in Super Mario 3D Land will be there too. You also get them in Sonic Generations. They add to your Mii Plaza for the purpose of Achievements. In other words, you get those Miis by playing ...

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

When you receive new Miis through Streetpass you simply have to press the purple arrow icon on the right, then you should have a menu with 3 choices: Keep playing, to remain in the plaza and play with the current Miis Go to the gate, to receive new Miis just arrived Add to the queue, to add new Miis in the queue (or something like that, my plaza is not in ...

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.

There are a couple approaches to disabling the StreetPass function from your 3DS. Here are a few. Note: there is no way to bring the "local" image on the top screen unless you are playing with someone else nearby with games such as Mario Kart 7 or Animal Crossing New Leaf. Turning off the Wireless Communications According to Nintendo Support: Push the ...

If you have disabled Streetpass for everything on that menu, you shouldn't pick up people in those games. The Streetpass on the home screen just says you have the ability to pick it up, not necessarily that it is active, if you don't have any games or the like you have allowed to use Streetpass. You can turn off the network stuff with the switch on the ...

You should be able to change your location by going to: Settings > Other Settings (Bottom Right) > Profile > Region Settings Understand that changing your country can mess things up. You will be warned of such. Source: Testing

First thing to do is to get the player into your town. You do this by going to the StreetPass Clerk in the Guild Office. Next, you need to find the Mii hanging out around town (not sure if they are found in towns other than the starting one). You can sort-of use the map by looking for blue dots indicating a streetpass Mii's location, but they are not set ...

Did you find those Miis from SpotPass and not classic StreetPass? Because in an hotspot you can receive people's Mii but that person may not "meet" your Mii at the same time. I know this because a friend of mine has met my Mii through SpotPass but I haven't met his one that day. Probably that person have met you more than 3 times (giving you the "Fantastic"...

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 potion ...

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.

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 ...

A sortie party met via StreetPass will stay on the map indefinitely until you Parley with them and either Fight or Shop. However, they will be defeated and leave if a Risen battle appears on their spot and you don't immediately help them out with that Risen battle.

I went ahead and did the System Transfer (can be found under Settings -> Other Settings -> System Transfer (3rd page, I believe). My StreetPass data and progress was transferred although data that was stored on SD card (such as some DLC and extra data for some games) was lost.

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 ...
