Plusle & Minun

Plusle & Minun, The Cheering Pokémon. Plusle cheers on it's partner by releasing sparks all over it's Body. When its partner Wins, it shorts out it's body. When it loses it cries loudly. Minun also likes cheering it's Partner on. It is more concerned over it's partner's safety than it's own. If it's Partner is in trouble, then it gives off more Sparks

Strategy Using Plusle & Minun

Minun and Plusle, both pokemon lacking in defense and can be taken out by most physical sweepers. The idea of this moveset is to support each other. Rain dance from Plusle and followed by Minun's thunder can be very effective. Also, Helping hand + HP Grass or Thunder(especially after rain dance has been used) can be very effective. But the chances of Plusle and Minun lasting in battle is slim.
Protect can help these pokemon in tough situations. Encore is basically to annoy your opponent and may force them into repeating a move that isn't an all out attack given Minun a chance to attack again.
Attract and Double team on Minun is there to add to the team strength with Attract infatuating your opponent if their pokemon's gender is opposite to your Minun. If you want to use these pokemon on their own I suggest turning them into baton passers with movesets like: Baton pass, Agility, Attract/Charm, Thunderbolt. Even as a baton passer they don't have the best moves available to them.

Strategy Using Minun:

 

Plusle on its own is best as a baton passer since it won't last long on your team, especially against physical sweepers. Just do a few agilities and baton pass to a different pokemon. Attract and thunderbolt are filler moves. Minun is very much like Plusle and should be used as a baton passer. Just like Plusle, Agility and then baton pass to get the most out of this pokemon. Charm and Thunderwave might prove useful and stall your opponent long enough to do more agilities before baton passing.

Strategy Against Plusle & Minun

Plusle The Attacker, Minun the Defender...however both their physical stats are poor you your best bet here is to get in with an Earthquake and they'll be toast. Any Super Effective or powerful physical attack will work
