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.

Trivia

  • Before Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire's release, Plusle was rumored to and was maybe originally called Maxim.
  • There is a rare glitch called Minusle, which is a fusion of Plusle and Minun.
  • Before the release of Generation III, many thought Plusle and Minun evolved into Latias and Latios, respectively.

Origin

Both Plusle and its counterpart Minun appear to be based on rodents, such as mice. They are also similar in appearance to rabbits. Plusle and Minun are based on the concept of positive and negative electrical charges, with Plusle representing the positive charge, and Minun representing the negative charge.

Name Origin

Plusle's name is derived from the word "plus", in reference to a positive electrical charge.
