What determines which Pokemon/type of Pokemon will be in your Friend Safari?

I want to know what codes specifically determine someone's Pokemon/type. Is there a formula I can use to determine what my friend's Pokemon/type will be depending on their friend code?

Insufficient. All you have to back it is that two of your friends happen to have differeing Friend Codes and have the same pokemon. People have said this before that it was random, but did not have the evidence to support and therefore had comments as well. Read the first couple comments.
Mega Pinsr, there are only 18 types. There are thousands of players. Take a guess why they have the same friend code.
Friend codes tell you what the type will be. There's no way telling what type you're going to get. They are randomly assigned to the Friend Safari according to their friend code. You cannot change the type. With each person, you get up to three Pokémon within each specific area, with the third Pokémon slot appearing should the person have defeated the Elite Four.

I believe it is random but  if  it isn't  it is determined by friend code of the 3ds because when I got a new 3ds for Christmas  my safari changed
