How does StreetPass work in this game?

I am going to Nintendo World tomorrow and am pretty sure I am going to get bombarded with StreetPass Tags.

Do I need to connect with Global Link first?

Make sure you DS is on, with the Wifi on as well. (I know, obvious.)
Also, do not be in the Pokemon X or Y game, you won't get any street passes.
You can accrue up to 99 passes at a time on Pokemon X or Y, and each pass will give you 1 Poke Mile. You can claim them from the Holo Caster.

I got maybe 10 since I got the game and the most I've done was put the game in sleep mode. So yes you can be in/on X/Y

I think he meant don't have the game active. If you're on the home screen with it in the background you are fine. But in my experience this past week, you will unfortunately not streetpass when X/Y are running. Which I think is horribly unfortunate given this game lends itself to long play sessions.

I've been ingame, connected to the internet (This is what my group of friends suspects why we don't street pass.), and not gotten any street passes until I go to the home menu. My entire group has had this problem. (However, as I said, we suspect it's being connected to the internet.)

I know how to get StreetPasses about putting my device in sleep mode and such but thank you. What I meant to ask which has been answered is how many streetpasses can the game hold before I have to do something in the game to clear them and get some more.

So now that i know it can hold up to 90 what do I do in the game to clear them?

Go to Holo Caster, then click on Check announcements.

I've gotten as far as seeing the message on the holocaster saying that i've met someone and gotten a PM for it; this also causes the green dot to go away from the game card icon on the system menu. However, on the notification screen of the 3ds menu, it still says 1/99 for Pokemon. Shouldn't there be some way that that is cleared out? It does clear out Mario Kart and Mii Plaza and Theatrhythm tags once I do the in-game interaction. Why isn't Pokemon doing this? I think perhaps it preventing me from tagging others in Pokemon, as today I tagged 3 people whose Miis said they're playing the game, but no new actual Pokemon tags. Any thoughts?
