Receiving an O-Power at a Pokémon Center store

O-Powers (Japanese: Oパワー O-Power) are temporary bonus effects that are used from the Player Search System. They are very similar to Pass Powers.

They can be shared with other nearby or online players; if another player uses one while connected online or within wireless distance, the player can tap their glowing icon to use it as well.

While the player starts with some O-Powers, addition O-Powers are given to the player by Mr. Bonding in Pokémon X and Y or the Mauville City Pokémon Center men in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire.

O-Powers can be upgraded by frequent usage. After 15 uses of a Level 1 O-Power, it will be upgraded to Level 2; after 30 uses of a Level 2 O-Power. it will be upgraded to Level 3 (Level 1 uses do not count for the upgrade to Level 3). Each level after the previous one will provide a more significant effect but cost more energy to activate. During special distribution periods, players can receive special O-Powers by playing their games at a Pokémon Center store; O-Power S is exclusive to this method, although the O-Powers given out are not always S.

O-Power energy

It costs energy to use an O-Power, which is measured by a bar of several circles. At the lowest rate of O-Power regeneration, it takes 4 minutes to fill an entire circle. The O-Power meter regenerates more quickly based on the number of steps counted for the current day on the user's 3DS. The user does not need to have the game running while they accumulate steps on their 3DS. This bonus can be seen as a number next to the clock by the power meter. Because the step counter resets at midnight, this regeneration bonus also resets at midnight. The thresholds are as follows:

Regeneration rate
0-2000 steps 1× regeneration rate
2001-3000 steps 2× regeneration rate
3001-4000 steps 3× regeneration rate
4001+ steps 4× regeneration rate
