Mr. Bonding (Japanese: キズナおやじ Old Man Kizuna) is an expert on O-Powers who will give the player an O-Power on every encounter with him. He appears as an adult man with dark purple hair in a light pink suit.

In the games

Mr. Bonding is first encountered in the gatehouse between Lumiose City and Route 5, where he offers an explanation of O-Powers and gives the player Attack Power and Defense Power. He afterwards appears in every new city and town that the player visits.

Getting all of the O-Powers from Mr. Bonding will earn the player the "O-Power Pro" medal on the Pokémon Global Link.

Whenever Mr. Bonding appears in a hotel (other than Hotel Richissime), he is in the east room on the upper floor; in Hotel Richissime, he is on the ground floor. When he appears in a Pokémon Center, he is facing the corner in front of the television on the west side.

Quotes

Route 5 Gate

"Hey!"
"Nice to meet you, friend! They call me Mr. Bonding. Have you heard about O-Powers? That expression of yours tells me you haven't! Don't worry--I'll tell you all about it. O-Powers are mysterious forces that have all kinds of useful effects. They can make your Pokémon stronger or even help you get more money! Any friends you have nearby will also benefit from them. They truly are mysterious powers! Let's get started, shall we? It's bonding time!"
"Attack Power increases the Attack stat. And Defense Power increases the Defense stat! That's not all--the powers can gain levels the more you use them! Take a look at the instructions if you want to know more. Remember--you can activate an O-Power using the PSS. Well then, I do believe I shall take my leave right about now. Hope to see you around!"

Subsequent Meetings

"Hey!"
"Hey, how's it going, friend? I'm Mr. Bonding, the expert on O-Powers. Let me ask you just in case! Do you need to hear an explanation about O-Powers?"
Yes: "O-Powers! They're mysterious forces! If you use them, good things will happen. For example, Pokémon will get stronger or you will get more prize money. Some O-Powers allow you to share good things with friends around you. They're wondrous things that nurture bonds!"
No: "Hey! That's my friend! Let's get started, shall we? It's bonding time!"
"Sp. Atk Power increases the Sp. Atk stat."
"Sp. Def Power increases the Sp. Def stat."

"Exp. Point Power increases the Exp. Points from a battle."

"PP Restoring Power restores the PP of the lead Pokémon when you use it."
"You can use O-Powers from the PSS, and the more you use them, the higher they level up! So use them as often as possible! Well then, I do believe I shall take my leave right about now. Hope to see you around!"

Café Introversion

"Hey!"
"Finally, the time has come! The time for me to give you the last power! Let's start the last one, shall we? It's bonding time!"
"Use Hatching Power, and you can reduce the number of steps you need to hatch an Egg! Well, then, I do believe I shall take my leave... Hope to see you around!"

Trivia

  • Coumarine City is the only location that has a hotel where Mr. Bonding is instead found in the Pokémon Center. This is because the hotel room where Mr. Bonding would appear is occupied in the Coumarine Hotel by the game director.
