Fuck off. That's like a deer playing Deer Hunting Simulator. Just sadistic.

This character is free to use in fanworks. Unless permission is given by the owner, all other usage of the character will be considered non-canon.

Aminu is a Minun from the Hoenn region. He debuted in Tayshaun & Amy - The Other Side.


For the most part, Aminu looks like a normal Minun. However, he has a mark on his tail, of which he never elaborated on how it got there.


Aminu was born on the tiny community of Pacifidlog. Being a Minun, he had electric powers from birth. He eventually got off the island(?) when he turned 13. For 4 years, he hung about the same area. When he was 17, he came across Brendan (of whom had just got a PhD), who was visiting for research. Aminu found Brendan interesting, and approached him slowly. Brendan seemed surprised by the courage on display, saying most other Pokémon he'd seen usually end up hiding in the grass. Aminu decided to join Brendan on his journey and they work together on things to this day.


Aminu is a headstrong guy, who isn't up for taking things lightly. He generally fights a lot. He is cocky and will tend to snap right back at someone if they try and insult him or any of his friends, always trying to look out for those close to him.



  • Aminu is the only Pokémon with a major role in the Tayshaun & Amy series.
  • Aminu's name is a reference to basketball player Al-Farouq Aminu.
