Pokemon X and Y: How to Find Pokemon on a Friend Safari

by Prima Games Staff

You’ll discover plenty of things to do while exploring Kiloude City, one of the more popular destinations in Pokemon X and Y.  We already covered the exciting Battle Maison. Now it’s time to go on a Friend Safari, where you’ll have opportunities to capture Pokemon you would otherwise have to trade with other players or transfer from previous games to obtain. 

To go on a Friend Safari in Pokemon X and Y, you must select from registered players on your friend list. In fact, you stand to gain even more Pokemon if the chosen friend currently plays X or Y.  In addition, you’ll unlock a different Friend Safari for each registered friend code. Naturally, the more Safaris you access, the more Pokemon you’ll collect. 

To capture Pokemon during a Friend Safari, head outside and run through the tall grass. Pokemon you discover will correspond to the Safari type you chose. For instance, opting to go on an Ice Safari means finding Cloyster, Delibird and Sneasel, among others, while a Fire Safari may result in capturing Charmeleon, Larvesta or Magmar, to name a few. 

Friend Safari Tips 

  • Pokemon captured during a Safari may possess hidden abilities.
  • Normally you find two Pokemon on a Safari, but if the person registered entered the Hall of Fame, you’ll get three. 
  • After going on a Safari, talk to the Judge in Kiloude City to reveal their potential. 

Here’s the complete list of Pokemon, by Safari type, that you can find. Pokemon with * after their names are ones you would only be able to get from a Pokemon Professor or via trades.
