Pokemon X and Y O-Powers

The O-Powers level up as you use them more often, improving their effects and giving higher bonuses. Effects can range from making wild pokemon easier to capture to increasing the attack or defense stats of a Pokemon in your squad by a certain amount.

However you need to find a certain Mr. Bonding in order to get these O-Powers. You first meet Mr. Bonding on Route 5, where you’ll get four O-Powers; Attack Power, Defense Power, HP Restoring Power and Capture Power.

After this, however, he will be pretty tough to locate and will give you a different O-Power each time.
