Plusle (プラスル) is the 80th Pokémon in the Hoenn Pokédex. It is an Electric Type, and it is known as the Cheering Pokémon.

Plusle uses the Plus Ability. Plus is an Ability that originally increased its Special Attack stat by 50% when paired with a Pokémon that has the Minus Ability, which was exclusive to Minun 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.

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

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