Mr. Bonding, the semi creepy man that hands over the O-Powers.

O-Powers

O-Powers are given out by a guy that pops up in random places, called Mr. Bonding. These O-Powers give the player that uses them (or receives them from a friend) special powers for a limited time.

They also increase in level the more they are used, each level costing more energy but giving out a greater effect than an earlier level. You can still use levels below, you just unlock access to level 2 or 3 as you use them more.

To level them up, you have to use Level 1 15 times and then Level 2 30 times. (Using Level 1 won't help you unlock Level 3.)

There are 16 in total, with 15 of them being a simple case of finding Mr. Bonding, the 16th though you have to do some extra work (but in my opinion it is the only one I could really use often).
