Greninja (Kalos Central Pokédex. It is a Water/Dark-Type, and is known as the Ninja Pokémon.) is the ninth Pokémon in the
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. Starting in Generation VII Greninja can also use Battle Bond, an Ability that allows it to transform into Ash-Greninja after defeating a Pokémon in battle, with the effect lasting for that battle. Greninja's Hidden Ability is Protean, which makes it a pure Pokémon of the type of move that it is about to use.
Greninja is in the Water 1 Egg Group. It takes Greninja 1,059,860 Experience Points to reach Level 100.
Greninja takes on the appearance of a bipedal frog. It typically stands in a ninjutsu-like stance. Its long tongue is wrapped around its neck like a scarf, and it has webbed hands and feet. There is also a white spot at both knees and elbows.
Greninja doesn't have any visible differences to differentiate between male and female.
Greninja has yet to appear in a Spin-Off Game as of writing.
Trading Card Game
Frogadier is listed as a Rare Holo card in the XY Set.
Greninja is a playable character in Super Smash Bros 3DS/Wii U, announced during a Nintendo Direct on April 8, 2014.
Greninja would become a key part of Ash's team after evolving from Frogadier in A Festival of Decisions!, and even more so when they began to understand its powers as it displayed use of the Battle Bond Ability in the same episode, which was not known at the time other than being "a mysterious, powerful transformation."
That transformation would have some side-effects on Ash as well, as he would also feel Greninja's pain, including passing out from the Ability's effects on the trainer.
Prior to that, Ash's Froakie would challenge another trainer's Greninja in A Rush of Ninja Wisdom.
Greninja makes its film debut in Volcanion and the Mechanical Marvel.
Greninja has yet to appear in the Manga as of writing.
Greninja finds itself in the Ubers tier after getting banned from the OverUsed metagame. In ORAS, Greninja gained new coverage moves like Gunk Shot and became incapable of being reliably walled by many Pokemon. Combined with its 122 Speed stat and amazing ability in Protean that gave it STAB on every move, it was banned into Ubers. In Ubers, Greninja has a very different niche as it cannot utilize its offensive sets to the great success it did in OU. Greninja is a suicide lead with access to Spikes and Toxic Spikes, ability to outspeed Defog Arceus forms and Taunt them before they can get rid of the hazards set up, and being able to block Rapid Spin via Shadow Sneak thanks to Protean. Greninja has massive competition in Deoxys-Attack and Deoxys-Speed for the hazards department, is annoyed by Magic Bounce Pokemon like Mega Sableye and Mega Diancie, and has lackluster bulk and offenses by Ubers standards. Despite this, having Toxic Spikes is a rarity among suicide leads and Greninja has a decent enough niche to hold its own in Ubers.
