Minun is a regional Electric Pokémon. It is vulnerable to Ground moves. Minun's strongest moveset is Spark & Thunderbolt and it has a Max CP of 1,694. This Pokémon is only found in Europe, Asia, Australasia.
"Minun is more concerned about cheering on its partners than its own safety. It shorts out the electricity in its body to create brilliant showers of sparks to cheer on its teammates."
Spark is the preferred fast move, benefiting from faster energy generation than Quick Attack, as well as STAB.
Discharge has a relatively low energy cost of only 45, and combined with the fast energy gains from Spark, Minun is able to spam its opponents with frequent charge moves and possibly bait out shields. Thunderbolt hits harder with a base power of 90 and respectable 1.6 DPE (Damage Per Energy), which allows it to possibly KO opponents if unshielded. Grass Knot provides extra coverage, especially against Minun's only weakness: Ground-type Pokemon.
Minun and its partner Plusle were initially introduced as regional Pokemon, but ever since their regional status was removed on February 9, 2018 and their shiny variants were introduced on July 14, 2018, they've become somewhat forgotten about. Minun has since then found some niches in Great League, where its useful Electric-type damage hurts common Flying-types like Skarmory, and strikes fear into Water Pokemon such as Azumarill. Minun's stat distribution is more optimal for Great League than Plusle's though not enough to make a significant difference.
Minun is limited to Great League, with a maximum CP of only 1694.
Wrong league, pal.
