Minor[]

Manga[]

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

Other[]

Inside the files for Super Smash Bros. Brawl, some leftover code 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 of the player 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.

Etymology[]

Minun's name is derived from the word "minus", referring to a negative electrical charge.
