Greninja

Greninja

Greninja is a Water- and Dark-type Ninja Pokémon native to the Kalos region. It evolves from the starter Pokémon Froakie, who is available for new trainers to choose along with Fennekin and Chespin.

With a diverse movepool and the Hidden Ability Protean, it has found a spot among the greats in competitive Pokémon battling. It’s also one of the only known Pokémon to have two signature moves: Water Shuriken and Mat Block, both of which it puts to use in this game.

Being a Water-type Pokémon, it naturally uses water for most of its attacks. Its slick Shadow Sneak maneuver and countering Substitute move coupled with its high aerial mobility make it a rather agile and devious fighter.

Greninja bounces upwards after connecting with his diving down aerial. Use this to land multiple attacks. It meteor smashes when sweetspotted.
Charge and release the Water Shuriken to push back opponents while hitting them multiple times.
Charge Shadow Sneak to travel a greater distance in whichever direction you choose. Hold the Control Stick in the direction you're appearing to do an kick upon reappearing, and hold in the opposite direction to do a stronger back kick upon reappearing.
Propel Greninja with Hydro Pump in two different directions or in a single direction covering a greater distance.
After using Substitute, control the direction Greninja reappears for a counterattack with the Control Stick.
For his Final Smash, Greninja catapults frontal foes with Mat Block, then repeatedly slashes them in the air before spiking them downwards.
