Greninja Moveset Analysis for Protean

Greninja

So reviewing it’s movepool for best use of Greninja’s Hidden Ability Protean which changes Greninja’s typing based on the moves it uses (for a constant same type attack bonus – S.T.A.B) we’ve been trying to figure out which moves would provide the best coverage in competitive Pokemon battling.

It’s primary threats (which most people would try on it when it first pops up will probably be Grass, Electric, and Fighting. It’s also weak to Bug and Fairy so keep those in mind. Ghost will help with alot of physical moves (but both it’s ghost moves are physical so keep that in mind when figuring out what kind of sweeper you want. Ground moves should help against Electrics but the only Ground moves it knows is Spikes so thats probably not the best idea unless you wanna set it up as they come at you with a flying type.

First thing you’ve gotta do is decide whether you want a Physical Sweeper, a Special Sweeper, or a Mixed Sweeper. Greninja’s best offensive stat is Sp.Atk (at 103) but it’s normal Atk isnt too far behind (at 95). So the list so far of it’s best physical and special moves and what typing it will change to:

Best Physical Moves

  • Aerial Ace / Acrobatics (Flying)
  • Smackdown (Rock)
  • Waterfall / Water Shuriken? (Water)
  • Night Slash (Dark)
  • Shadow Sneak (Ghost)
  • Facade / Giga Impact / Return (Normal)
  • Rock Tomb (Rock)
  • Dig (Ground)

Best Special Moves

  • Grass Knot (Grass)
  • Hidden Power (typing of your choice)
  • Hydrocannon / Hydro pump / Water Pledge (Water)
  • Extrasensory (Psychic)
  • Icebeam / Blizzard (Ice.. duh!)
  • Hyperbeam (Normal)
  • Dark Pulse (Dark)
  • Power-Up Punch (Fighting)

Both Aerial Ace/Acrobatics (Physical Flying) and Extrasensory (Special Psychic) should help with Fighting Types. Smack down (Physical Rock) should help with Pesky Bug types (which for the most part are also Flying). Grass Knot (Special Grass) will change it to a Grass type but Greninja also has access to other sexy moves like Power-up Punch (if you’re going the Physical route. Waterfall for a Physical water set or Hydrocannon / Water Pledge for Special Sweeper water moves.

Which moves do you think will provide the best coverage?

Greninja’s Protean

Greninja

Has anyone else noticed Greninja’s Hidden Ability Protean? View Greninja’s Pokedex Here

Protean basically allows Greninja to change it’s typing before it attacks to that same typing. This not only means Greninja gains STAB on all it’s moves but you can essentially change it’s typing every turn making it very hard for your opponent to get a decent hit off on it. It starts off normally as a Water/Dark type but let’s say it uses Aerial Ace (for example) it becomes a pure Flying type making that nasty ground move that was about to hurt you badly completely useless!

It’s moveset is somewhat diverse in-terms of typing allowing for pure Psychic, Fighting, Dark, Normal, Ghosts, Ground, Ice, Rock, and even Grass. Questions is what kind of moveset would offer it the best type of coverage against the most common types of foes? Any ideas?

Acrobatic Overkill

Acrobatic Overkill: I bet anything if Aladdin has this Jinn instead of that Genie, that whole movie would have turned out ALOT differently and probably alot sooner! In today’s metagame Physical Sweepers come and go but Tornadus really stirs things up! TornadusLink: http://www.hohoushome.com/build.php?v=73

Basic Build: Tornadus is a nasty Physical Sweeper. Flying Gem makes it so when the holder uses a damaging flying-type move, the move has 1.5x power and this item is consumed. Tornadus’s Prankster trait factors in quite nicely.

Tornadus (F) @ Flying Gem
Trait: Prankster
EVs: 5 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd /
Jolly Nature (+Spd , -SAtk)
– Acrobatics
– Bulk Up
– Tailwind
– Hammer Arm

Breeding Instructions: http://www.hohoushome.com/breed.php?v=73
Since Tornadus can’t breed, it’s Jolly nature must be obtained when it is first captured/obtained.

Summary: This build redefines the word ‘amazing’. This is one jinn that I don’t see getting bottled anytime soon. Thanks Falkner for submitting this amazing build.

Halloween Arceus

Phantom Arceus: Halloween is just around the corner and what better way to celebrate than to add a Spooky version of the Deity Arceus to your team? Physical Sweepers come and go but no other Pokemon has surprised Uber quite like Arceus! ArceusLink: http://www.hohoushome.com/build.php?v=504

Basic Build: Arceus is a nasty Physical Sweeper. Spooky Plate makes it so increases the power of the holder’s ghost moves by 20%.
held by a multitype pokemon: holder’s type becomes ghost. Arceus’s Multitype trait factors in quite nicely.

Arceus @ Spooky Plate
Trait: Multitype
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd /
Adamant Nature (+Atk , -SAtk)
– Swords Dance
– Shadow Claw/Shadow Force
– Brick Break

Breeding Instructions: http://www.hohoushome.com/breed.php?v=504
Since Arceus can’t breed, it’s Adamant nature must be obtained when it is first captured/obtained.

Summary: This build is very impressive. Thanks PsychoHail for submitting this scary halloween Arceus build.
