Biology

Physiology

Plusle Minun Garbage Can Destiny Deoxys

A Plusle looking in a garbage can.

Plusle is a small rodent-like Pokémon. It bears a remarkable resemblance to Pichu and Pikachu, and a slight resemblance to Raichu. Plusle's body is pale yellow in color, with bright red fur on its ears, cheeks, paws, and tail. Plusle have long rabbit-like ears and short tails with flat red plus signs on the end of them, while their cheeks are circular with plus signs voided in the middle.

Behavior

Plusle is a cheerful and supportive Pokémon, always encouraging comrades in battle by using the spark pouches in its cheeks, or even using Helping Hand. It is very compassionate towards its friends, and is known to cry upon witnessing a friend lose a battle. It's kind are commonly referred to as cheerleaders for these actions.

Natural abilities

Plusle's abilities in battle are basically the same as its cousin Pikachu except that Plusle has more Special Attack power than Pikachu and is slightly faster. However, Plusle is unable to use moves such as Volt Tackle and Slam. On the other hand, Plusle learns more support moves than Pikachu, such as Baton Pass, Fake Tears, and Copycat. Plusle's most famous support move is Helping Hand.
