Catching the Legendary Bird Pokemon
After defeating the Kalos region's Elite 4, you will have a chance to encounter one of the three legendary birds from Pokemon Red and Blue throughout Kalos. Which bird will appear is based on the Pokemon you chose at the beginning of the game.

The legendary bird should appear in your Coastal Kalos Pokedex afterward, allowing you to track its location. Walk (don't fly) to the bird's location to challenge it again; it should flee. Repeat a few more times, after which the Pokemon should retreat to Sea Spirit's Den. There you will at last be able to catch it!

Pokemon X & Y save glitch fixes
If you found out the hard way about how saving your game just outside of a building in Lumiose City would "freeze" your save and prevent it from loading, fortunately there is a fix. Simply remove your SD card (with your save file) from the 3DS, then load up Pokemon again. Now you can re-insert your SD card and load your now unfrozen file.

Another way is to keep the SD card in your 3DS as normal, but keep hitting the Home button on the handheld while you load up your Pokemon X or Y file; start mashing the button as soon as you hear the in-game music start playing, while the screen is still black!
Pokemon-Amie hearts stats
In Pokemon-Amie, you can feed your pokemon Poke Puffs, pet it, etc. to level it up hearts of affection to make it a fully affectionate pokemon so it can do extra thing earn more exp, do critical hits more often, restore itself from a status condition, etc. Well this shows how many hearts it takes to make it's affection hearts to go up 1/5.
Heart 1: 50 hearts from poke puffs or petting, etc.
Heart 2: 50 hearts
Heart 3: 100 hearts
Heart 4: 150 hearts
Heart 5 Part 1: 200 hearts
Heart 5 Part 2: 250 hearts
When your pokemon has sparkles in its chest area and sends up 3 rows of hearts, it's fully affectionate! Have fun with your pokemon at max affection!
