This has something to do with a  3ds, not pokemon
@LunaKittyTheCute, Do you have a 3DS/2DS?
@Alolan Vulpix - Then why... Is your friend code... Publicly in your profile? But I don't believe your warning is true.
:O (filler)
Alright, I changed the question slightly based on the tag it has. It fits now.
Thanks for the flag.

A Friend Code is a 12-digit number unique to your 3DS or 2DS system. You can register other people’s Friend Codes and add them to your friend list. Whenever someone on your friend list goes online, the system will let you know by blinking the light on the right side of the hinge (for the 3DS; I’m not sure how it works for the 2DS) Most 3/2DS games with online connectivity will also highlight friends when looking through a list of online users.
The Friend Safari is a location in X/Y that is populated by Pokémon according to how many friends you have registered. It starts out with no Pokémon, but for each registered friend, 3 Pokémon species will become available. The species are determined by the friend’s code, soif two people befriend the same person, they will get the same Pokémon, although you cannot access Pokémon from your own Friend Code. Pokémon in the Friend Safari are not available elsewhere in X/Y, have at least 2 perfect IVs, are more likely to be shiny, and have a chance of having their Hidden Ability.

More information about Friend Codes can be found here, and information about the Friend Safari can be found here.

Man, I've been answering a lot of questions lately that end up getting taken down because I didn't stop to think about whether the question is allowed.
@Octazooka - It's still good to help people with simple stuff before their question gets hidden/closed/deleted.

You're not supposed to answer questions that break the rules... And you got an up-vote for it :O! I think you're just supposed to make your answer a comment if the question you're answering breaks the rules.

From the "rules" :P: Don't answer questions that break the rules: If a question breaks the rules (e.g. a duplicate moveset question), please do not answer it. Flag it for moderator attention instead.
Your answer now needs more info :O!
