Minun (Japanese: マイナン Mainan) is an Electric-Type Pokémon introduced in Generation III. Minun is a Pokémon which is best when battling with Plusle in a Double Battle because of the ability Minus. Plusle also powers up when it is fighting with Minun with the ability Plus. When the two are battling on their own, they are much weaker. Plusle and Minun are best friends under any circumstances.



Minun bears a remarkable resemblance to Pichu and Pikachu. Minun have short tails with flat blue minus signs on the end of them, while their cheeks and the tips of their ears are blue, and have minus signs voided in the middle. The rest of its body is a tan color.
