Greninja (ゲッコウガ) is the ninth Pokémon in the Kalos Central Pokédex. It is a Water/Dark-Type, and is known as the Ninja Pokémon.

Greninja uses the Torrent Ability, which increases the power of its Water-Type moves by 50% once its HP falls below one-third of its maximum. Greninja's Hidden Ability is Protean, which makes it a pure Pokémon of the type of move that it is about to use.

Froakie can evolve into Frogadier at Level 16 and can evolve a second time into Greninja at Level 36.

Greninja is in the Water 1 Egg Group. It takes Greninja 1,059,860 Experience Points to reach Level 100.

[edit] Pokémon Information

[edit] Competitive Battling

Greninja finds itself as a viable option in the Over-Utilized Tier of Competitive Battling thanks to a high Base Speed of 122, capable of being quicker than Starmie. In addition to the variety of moves that it can run, from all-out attacking to even using both Spikes and Toxic Spikes, the best part of Greninja is in its Hidden Ability Protean, which gives it a Same Type Attack Bonus with all four of its moves.

Special Walls will shut down the attacking set, walling it. Breloom and Lucario will do well against Greninja, especially by using Priority Moves.
