Haha, I'll go hatch them.
As for the Friend Safari, yeah, I've tried it (got a few good Pokes over there, like Chansey and Ivysaur). Yours is Ghost-type by the way (mine's Flying I've been told.)

Eh, how does that work? Is it random or something?

@KAIZA: Ah, OK. :3 ...how oddly appropriate. :< And I can confirm whether yours is flying type or not once I get to the Friend Safari myself.

@Cherry: Yeah, as far as I know it's either random or based off your Friend Code. Someone else may be able to provide a more definitive answer though, at least until I look it up.

Besides running the forum, I can provide avatars for people as well~

Yeah, kinda. Each Friend Code is assigned a Type (don't know how it's determined, so random) and from there, a set of two (three if they have beaten the game) Pokemon from separate pools (one for each) for that type, at random.

The Type and Pokemon assigned will always be the same for that Friend Code for everyone, so to maximize the Safari's usefulness (and trust me, there are some good Pokemon only obtainable there), it's good to have as many friends registered as possible.

EDIT: Here's some more info on it.

I don't see the point of the friend safari. I mean it is a neat feature but it comes in the post game and frankly between the sheer amount of Pokemon in the game and the frankly tiny amount of stuff to do post game don't see it being very useful.

Can you not use it before you've completed the game?

Nope, can't use it until you beat the Elite Four. People can still access yours though, so long as they've beaten the Elite Four themselves. Like KAIZA said, it helps to have lots of friends registered.

...I need more friend codes. Moar I say. :<

And as for post game stuff, there's plenty from what I understand. There's the Looker stuff and the Battle Institute bare minimum. Plus battling with friends, etc.

Friend battling isn't in game content. And as I recall the battle institution is set up to replicate competitive battling which I find a waste of time.

the looker bit is there but in relation to Gen five there's far less to do.

The point of the Friend Safari (which is basically the game's Safari Zone) is, as always, to get Pokemon not normally available in the wild. It's also the only way to catch the other Kalos/Kanto starters you might be missing (all their second stages have a chance of appearing) without trading.
And, yes, it's post-game only. But hey, one of the goals of the games is to collect all the Pokemon (available), so there's that too.

Also, from what I've read, there's data for three more legendary Pokemon in the game, so there will probably be some downloadable event for each of them.

There's also the Battle Maison, the Battle Chateau, which includes rematches with the Gym Leaders, the extra legendaries like Mewtwo, Z-Guy (can't remember name) and the Kanto birds, hunt for Mega Stones, getting the customization items...

Hmm, speaking of Mega Stones, I can't seem to get the guy in Lumoise City to refresh his wares so I can get me some Charizardite X. Do I have to defeat the Elite Four to have him start switching his wares? I want my awesome charizard to be even more awesome darn it.

From what I read, those three stones (for the Kanto starters) are sold on specific dates. I'd have to look to confirm this. Give me a sec.

Go to the menu, at the top, the square icon with a smiley face. That's the Friend's List. There should be a card in that menu with your Friend Code.
