do you think it would have been great if when street passing you wonder traded with the person you street passed with.

Like you had a special wonder trade box and it took a random one from yours and a random one from there's and put into your normal pc (so that it doesn't trade what you received)

what do you guys think?

It could definitely work. Since this would be automatic, it'd be reducing a lot of hassle for us from Wonder Trading; we wouldn't have to do anything ourselves. Just street-pass, and you're good to go. If it were to actually exist, though, I think there should definitely be some indicator of sorts to notify us that the system's Wonder Traded and whatnot. :P
for all distractions.

It sounds like an awesome idea, I love it. But like all StreetPass functions, it would really only work to its full potential in Japan, where everyone seems to have a 3DS.

(Seriously, when I was in Tokyo it was incredible how many StreetPasses I would get in a day. I'd sometimes get close to 100, although admittedly I spent a lot of time wandering around the streets and on the metro.)

when you start up you get a message saying congrats you got this pokemon for this pokemon from this person. similar to the streetpass welcome gate in plaza

I get like 20-40 a day on my train journeys to and from work because a lot of the train stations are nintendo zones

This sounds like an awesome idea :D
It would be a lot of fun to prepare a box with pokemon to trade away and get something nice in exchange without having to do anything.

I thought street pass was limited to a maximum of 10 at a time? Anyway, the inherent problem with that is if you do get a wonder trade in your box, what happens when you street pass multiple times, does the first or second pokemon you got in a wonder trade end up getting traded again so you never know you had them in the first place?

The thing I would have liked is if they had done it like the in game trainers so each person you street pass with gets saved and the next time you are both online at the same time you can battle each other just like if you had encountered the trainer in game. But really, ANYTHING other than pokemiles would have been great. I so rarely get a street pass with this game and when I do I get a whopping 1 pokemile. Whoop de ding!
Desperately searching for the last two pokemon I need, anyone willing to trade?
5IV - 6IV Xerneas with Lonely nature in Great Ball (if 5IV, want 31/31/x/31/31/31 spread please)
5IV - 6IV Yveltal with Mild or Modest Nature in Luxury Ball (if 5IV, want 31/31/x/31/31/31 spread please)

I now have access to all Safari Hidden Abilities and Pokebank exclusive hidden abilities so whatever you need, I can trade with you for it!

I suppose this could work, but it's limited for a lot of people. Pokemon is aimed at kids, and I know most kids can't take their 3ds to school and such. I like the theory I don't see it happening though.

Yes, I definitely think that would be a good idea! :D I'd love to give away spitbacks to people and I think the fact that there's less anonimity means that less people would streetpass-wondertrade lv2 Pidgey.

I usually get 10+ street passes at college/university, so it'd be relevant for me. But then again, usually less than half of those streetpasses have Pokemon XY being played...

surely that's the same with a lot of in-game street pass functions though. but they'll still get used.

street pass plaza is limited to 10 as well as some other games but x/y is 99 and animal crossing is 20 so the in-game street passes are different to the plaza.
also the box you have prepared for wonder trading the pokemon if you only had 2 in the box and met 3 people you'd just get the pokemiles and not the wonder trade as the first one is gone. The pokemon you obtained from wonder trade would go into a "streetpass box" similar to the transfer box in pokemon bank

StreetPass would've been a nice idea to download opponent's teams, buy items, receive gifts, etc. (If you've played Fire Emblem Awakening, you'd have a general idea of what I'm talking about)

I was disappointed when I found out XY didn't utilize StreetPass at all.

well I wouldn't say AT ALL, just not very much. I would imagine if you travelled and street passed with people who's 3DS region settings were far away from where your 3DS region settings are you would get more pokemiles than just the 1 or 2 you get when street passing with people all in the same regional setting.
