Growlithe and Arcanine are not available In Game in Pokémon X and Y although you can get them in the Fire type Friend Safari.

Other alternative methods involve trading or migrating one over using Pokémon Bank when it is released.

thanks dont know what friend codes are or whats mine how do you get it,and how do you use friend safari
Basically, you just do trade or battle with a passerby, then afterwards he will be an aquaitance. Then, do the one you haven't done yet (battle or trade) and afterwards you have the option to register them as a friend.

I suggest using wonder trade, so you can trade with someone who is playing, they then become your aquaintance, then all you have to do is battle OR trade with them and BAM instant friend!

If you go to the friend safari in Kiloude City, Northeast, then your friend will be randomly assigned to a type of pokemon, to which you can catch three pokemon of that type in there.
Pokemon that are found in the friend safari has:
-A chance to have its hidden ability
-A higher chance of catching (or chaining to) a shiny
A Friend Code is a unique twelve-digit code, it is used to identify friends for online play. An example of a Friend Code is 0684-7621-4579. This video will help you find out your friend code: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0buXwYC4uIA

To use the Friend Safari you must have entered the Hall of Fame. If you have entered the Hall of Fame, you are able to access Kiloude City and thus the Friend Safari. You need to add another players Friend Code in order to access the Friend Safari. This link will help you find a player with a Fire type Friend Safari: http://pokemondb.net/pokebase/meta/39716/friend-safari-page-x-y?show=39716#q39716

Once you have found a player with a Fire type Friend Safari comment on their answer with your In Game Name (IGN) and your Friend Code. This is important because the Friend Safari will only work if both players have each other Friend Code registered. Note it is probably better to comment on the more recent posts rather than the older ones.
