Minun (マイナン) is the 81st Pokémon in the Hoenn Pokédex. It is an Electric Type, and it is known as the Cheering Pokémon.

Minun uses the Minus Ability. Minus is an Ability that originally increased its Special Attack stat by 50% when paired with a Pokémon that has the Plus Ability, which was exclusive to Plusle in the third and fourth generations. Starting in Generation V, however, the Special Attack increase will take effect regardless if battling with a partner Pokémon that has Plus or Minus.

Minun does not evolve and does not have a pre-evolved form.

Minun is in the Fairy Egg Group, and its Egg takes approximately 5,120 Steps to hatch. It takes Minun One Million Experience Points to reach Level 100.
