You can activate these powers through PSS and thereon, either use them on yourself or your friends. This is actually great since you get to use even those powers that you are still to learn.

Apart from adding a more cooperative feature, they also make you stronger with every usage because their strength will continue to increase with every time you use them.

How to Acquire O-Powers

Acquiring the O-Powers is easy, all you need to do is keep a regular check on the Mauville City Pokemon Center while you play through your journey. On the top right corner of the center you will find a strange man near the map.

Talking to this man will get you the first O-Power and then another. At the same place, he will be replaced by numerous other strange people who will give you their share of powers before being replaced by the next person.

Do remember, however, that getting all the O-Powers necessitates that you acquire them in the given order. This is because each O-Power comes in levels and also because you will get to meet the next person in line only when you have obtained all the O-Powers from the last one.
