In the manga

Minun's only appearance is in the Pokémon adventures.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl

When the Brawl disk was hacked, some coding 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.

  • Using the tool Poke Radar when in Trophy Garden (Platinum) in search of Minun or Plusle can help, and make capture easier.
