    #658 - Greninja
    Water / Dark

    Japanese Name: Gekkouga
    Classification: Ninja Pokémon
    Height: 4'11''
    Weight: 88.2 lbs.
    Egg Group: Water 1

    Ability: Torrent
    Hidden Ability: Protean

    Revealed: Greninja was officially revealed by Pokemon.com on the 12th of October. It, along with Delphox and Chesnaught, was leaked a few days prior to the official reveal but was not reported on due to Nintendo's wishes for them not to be revealed before the games release.

    Additional Info: In can compress water into shuriken, launching them with enough force to cleave metal!

    X: It creates throwing stars out of compressed water. When it spins them and throws them at high speed, these stars can split metal in two.
    Y: It appears and vanishes with a ninja's grace. It toys with its enemies using swift movements, while slicing them with throwing stars of sharpest water.

  2. *sighs* That scarf. That stupid TONGUE SCARF. Why, oh why, Game Freak?

    Well, at least it can make shuriken, that is freaking awesome!

    However, I'm still in debate over Fennekin or Froakie, purely because of this. :p
  3. Can't say I'm a big fan of the tongue scarf either (it's not like there was anything stopping it from wearing an actual scarf; Hitmonchan, Throh, and Sawk all wear clothes for no apparent reason), but I don't regret starting with Froakie, as Greninja is an awesome fighter.

  4. After seeing it around for a while, I don't really mind the tongue scarf anymore. It's a little gross on paper, but also quirky and it really makes Greninja stand out. Compared to the fox in the dress *Male Delphox shouting 'ROBE' in the distance* I'd say Chesnaught's and especially Greninja's appearances are more interesting and memorable.

    Now if only this thing wasn't such a jack-of-all-offenses, it'd probably be more interesting in battle. Greninja, being part of the type that has the most species out of any other type, has a lot to prove. Hopefully its Dream Ability gives it an edge against the several other entries that came before it.

  11. That's only if it has Protean. -.-

  12. I love Greninja. I don't mind the tongue scarf, since I know the concept behind that. Plus it's shiny form looks too epic. And protean...how can I state this? Oh right: Greninja is incredibly powerful, as it gets a STAB boost on any move it uses. For some reason, I picture Koga having a greninja ._.
  13. The shiny version of Greninja actually makes it look like a ninja, where as the original is blue. What ninja is blue? Seriously?

  15. Usually Ninja's had dark blue outfits, not black. Pure black stands out in the night, whereas dark blue blends in better

  16. The first time I saw it, I was like '' Is it choking with it's tounge?"
    But then I acctualy got used with it! Though, bubble scarf looks better, I can't imagine Greninja with it :p.
    Still prefer Delphox over it, but the Ninja design is too epic. And Water/Dark..
    Good job GameFreak.. Good job..

  17. Am I the only one who's not super-crazy about the Froakie family?

  18. No, you're not. I'm not crazy either, I just like the idea of it. And, truth to be told, Greninja is my least favourite third-stage starter of these. But I like Frogadier, though!:'|

  29. Well..how can i say? Greninja's appearance is very cool. It matches with it's species. With the shiny coloration, it is epic. I'm going to get my own Greninja.

  36. I don't played X and Y that often (I play it every once in a while but not that much). So I don't really know what to tell you about Greninja, but.. Greninja has the best design in Gen 6 for a new pokemon in my opinion.

  37. I jus love Greninja not because it has cool attacks, or it looks awesome, but mostly because it's a Pokemon tht best represents me.
