I mean really Gamefreak? Their more useless than Magikarp. At least it evolves into something that is kind of useful. Think about it for a second; Have you ever had a battle with a Plusle and/or Minun and thought "Oh S*** I'm screwed!"? No? Didn't think so. --- There's a 95% chance this topic is unfunny.

In coliseum Duking gives you a plusle ingame, as it's not technically yours it's exp goes up much faster to the point where it can near solo evice. Minun was also awesome in the original ranger games as well as taking down winona and when either are with each other their sp atk gets even stronger their double discharge is sure to take down any gyarados.

If you're a game publisher you can use them to produce a spinoff series the only gameplay mechanic of which is drawing circles very quickly and which exploits the fanbase of the main series for its popularity? --- Always interested in any Pokemon event distribution cartridges.

Useful to me on my 1st Ruby playthrough. "Oooh are they related to Pikachu?!" Kept one on my team and beat the Elite 4 with him (Minun).
Sooo yeah they're useful. --- GT: Ayumi Spender || PS0: 4597 9585 4793 Only talk to me when I order you to. 3DS: 2921 9091 2567

Think about it for a second; Have you ever had a battle with a [almost any pokemon] and thought "Oh S*** I'm screwed!"? No? Didn't think so.

There are but it's just better to use another electric type.
