Greninja is a Water/Dark-type Pokémon that evolves from Frogadier at Lv. 36, which evolves from Froakie at Lv. 16.


Greninja is a bipedal, frog-like Pokémon. Its body and legs are dark blue, with single large white bubbles on its legs and arms and white spots over its eyes. On the sides of each of its upper thighs is a light blue, four-pointed star, which resembles a shuriken. Its back feet have two toes, while its front feet have three toes. Its feet are webbed, and it has a yellow chest and a yellow-and-blue face. It has eyes with white sclera, red irises, and white pupils. A large, projecting dark blue stripe runs down the middle of its head, with projecting light blue stripes in between its large, yellow ears. Its mouth is hidden behind a large, pink tongue that wraps around Greninja's neck and extends outward behind its head.

Ash-Greninja []

Ash-Greninja takes on an appearance resembling Ash Ketchum while being covered in a veil of water. The water veil moves from around its body to its back and forms an "X" shape, which resemble wings, then the wings form into a small sphere shape of water on the middle of its back with a light blue ring in the middle of it and it then grows in size until it forms into a giant shuriken made of water.

It is revealed by Clemont's device that Ash and his Greninja share the exact same heartbeat while Greninja is in the form.


Greninja moves with the speed and grace of a ninja, using swift movements to confuse its enemies while it slices them up with throwing stars made of compressed water; these throwing stars are sharp enough to split metal.


Ash-Greninja gains a significant boost in speed and power.

Ash-Greninja's trainer is able to see from Ash-Greninja's point of view and will occasionally mimic Ash-Greninja's movements.



Whenever Ash-Greninja takes damage, the pain is shared with its trainer.

If Ash-Greninja is pushed too hard, it's possible for Ash-Greninja and its trainer to pass out.
