Plusle (Japanese: プラスル Prasle) is an Electric-type Pokémon.

While it is not known to evolve into or from any Pokémon, it does seem to be related to Minun.

Biology

Plusle is cream-colored bipedal Pokémon with red markings. It has a dot-like nose, and a cream-colored plus sign in the middle of its circular red cheeks. It has long, flat ears that are mostly red. Its limbs are stubby and digitless, and it has red front paws. Its short tail is tipped with a red plus sign.

Plusle can create sparkly pom-poms by shorting out the electrical current in its palms. It uses these pom-poms to cheer on its teammates, and will cry loudly if they lose. It climbs telephone poles to absorb electricity. It lives in grassy areas.

In the anime

Major appearances

Plusle (with Minun) in the anime

Plusle first appeared alongside Minun in A Different Kind of Misty!. Both Pokémon were owned by Thatcher, who is responsible for protecting a lighthouse. The same Plusle and Minun appear again in Cheer Pressure, where Thatcher is training them to be cheerleaders.

Elijah used Plusle and Minun as actors in Lights, Camerupt, Action!. The plot of the movie was that Pikachu, Plusle and Minun were setting out to rescue Princess Kirlia from an evil Exploud.

Plusle and Minun also appear as supporting characters in the film Destiny Deoxys, serving as the story's comic relief. The pair helps Tory Lund to overcome his fear of Pokémon.

Solana's Plusle also appears with her each time she herself makes an appearance, except Pokémon Ranger and the Kidnapped Riolu! Parts One and Two. It is the only one so far not to be seen with a Minun partner.

Another Plusle appeared in Yes in Dee Dee, It's Dawn! and Playing the Performance Encore! alongside its counterpart under the ownership of Ursula. Also, in the same episode one appeared along with a Minun in Dawn's flashback when she confessed that as a child, she had a fear of both of them.

Minor appearances

Plusle along with Minun had a cameo in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Team Go-Getters Out of the Gate! where they were rescued by Team A.C.T.

One also appeared in Meloetta's Moonlight Serenade.

Other appearances

Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Excess data found on the game disc includes data for seven playable characters cut from the final roster, including Plusle and Minun as a tag team akin to the Ice Climbers. However, in the final version of the game, Plusle just appears as a random trophy alongside Minun.

Trophy Information

It appears with its counterpart, Minun.

"Cheering Pokémon. Plusle and Minun produce positive and negative energy, respectively. They both love cheering on their partners and place the encouragement of their partners over their own safety. To cheer, they short their electric currents to produce sparks that grow in intensity as their partners get into trouble."
