The "World Connector" achievement is bullshit.
This is the one where you have to have a full friend list (100), for the record. However, the problem lies in the fine print. Not only do you need to swap friend codes with 100 people, but they also all have to have Pokémon X or Y (and have checked in online at least once, of course). Every. Last. One. Of. Them. What if there's one friend you have that doesn't have it, and isn't interested in it? And "one of them" will be a low estimate in most situations. So unless you're willing to go through the effort of deleting them, adding other people who do have the game, getting the achievement, then deleting those guys to add your friends back, you are SO fucked. This achievement is a gluttonous hog that devours your friend list just to make sure that everyone you know has the game too. The only silver lining is that it doesn't require Google-. Other than that... yeah, this achievement is garbage, good luck getting it. It worked in BW2 because it had an independent friend list that was just for it, but this relies on a friend system shared by all 3DS games. That's the key word. SHARED. This game doesn't want to share, it's all or nothing! So who thought doing this was a good idea, again?
