Devi and Multa
Devi (Japanese: ディバイ Divi) and Multa (Japanese: マルプリ Mulpli) are two characters of the day who appeared in Searching for Service with a Smile!. They are siblings who run their own handymen company alongside their Plusle and Minun.
In Searching for Service with a Smile!, they visited Cerise Laboratory to fix a tap that was leaking. As they were leaving, Devi fell down the stairs and was admitted to hospital in a full body cast. Because of this, Ash and Goh offered to help Multa in her duties, to which Multa agreed.
Multa, Ash and Goh visited the home of a Tauros enthusiast and helped give the Tauros a bath. They later visited the Rock Tunnel, where another man's Tauros had gotten trapped. Exploring the tunnel, they came across it and were about to free it when Goh's Grookey ended up poking the Tauros, enraging it and making them all run from the tunnel while freeing it.
Driving around Vermilion City, they came across Team Rocket who had accidentally caused a leak at a drinking fountain. This caused Multa to panic, but Ash and Goh managed to calm her down and got the fountain repaired. They later visited the Tauros enthusiast again, who reported that some other handymen came and now his Tauros were missing. They soon found Team Rocket with the Poké Balls containing the Tauros only for the Balls and Meowth to fall down a hole with the Tauros coming out of the Balls, leaving them and Meowth trapped.
Working with Meowth, Multa was able to free the Tauros and Meowth before visiting Devi in hospital.
|Plusle and Minun are Devi and Multa's only known Pokémon. Plusle belongs to Multa while Minun belongs to Devi.
Plusle and Minun accompany Devi and Multa and provide support as they work. Minun became angry with Multa when Devi became injured and wouldn't assist her. When entering Rock Tunnel, Plusle provided some light, allowing them to see.
When the generator on the winch Multa was using to hoist the Tauros out of a hole was drained of its battery, Plusle and Minun teamed up with Ash's Pikachu to recharge the generator, allowing Multa to rescue the Tauros and Meowth.
Plusle and Minun's only known move is Discharge.

- Similar to how Plusle and Minun's names are derived from "plus" and "minus", Devi and Multa's names are also references to the basic operations of elementary arithmetic.
