Appearances

Anime

Minun is rarely seen in the Pokémon anime without Plusle. Its first two appearances is the same Minun. It also appears with Plusle in the seventh movie and accompanying short. In this movie, he is kidnapped by Deoxys and later becomes, together with Plusle, the first Pokémon of Tory. Its first appearance is in episode 314, where Minun and Plusle, are attacked by Team Rocket. In Pokémon DP Sinnoh League Victors, Dawn's rival Ursula has a Minun.

Manga

Minun's only appearance is in the Pokémon adventures manga.

Other

When the Brawl disk was hacked, some coding was found for two characters that mimic the Ice Climber's actions and style of brawling. The coding was titled Pra & Mai, which are the prefixes of the Japanese names of Plusle and Minun, which got a rumor going around about partial Brawl entrance of Plusle and Minun.

It is a major Pokémon in Pokémon Ranger, where it is the starter Pokémon after saving it from a Houndoom that it angered.

Trivia

Origin

Both Minun and its counterpart Plusle 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

Minun's name is derived from the word "minus", referring to a negative electrical charge, and that is why in Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald, you find a Pokéfan and his wife fighting a double battle, with the Pokéfan using Plusle, as it is a representative of positive energy, so it supposedly flows well with his wife's Minun.
