Depending on the type of role Greninja is being used, different move sets will work better for them. For the most part, all of the Water-type moves are Greninja’s best. However, to make Greninja a harder foe against Ghost and Psychic Pokémon types we’ll add in a Dark-type move to each set as options.

  1. Bubble – 12 Base Damage | 10 DPS | 11.7 EPS
