Final Smash Secret Ninja Attack


Greninja is a dual-type Water/Dark Pokémon. It evolves from Frogadier starting at level 36. It is the final form of Froakie. 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.

- : Water Shuriken - Horizontally throws a chargeable shuriken made of water. Gains power but loses speed and range the more it is charged. Hits multiple times when fully charged. (3%-11% (not fully charged), 0.7% (fully charged loop), 9% (fully charged last hit))

> : Shadow Sneak-  Silently prepares to teleport to a moving shadow, which activates when the button is released. If the shadow is in front of the opponent, Greninja attacks with a handstand-initiated backflip kick. If the shadow is behind the opponent, Greninja dropkicks them instead. The latter strike is slightly stronger than the former. (10% (normal), 12% (reverse))

^ : Hydro Pump -  Shoots two streams of water from one of its hands in the opposite direction of travel, propelling Greninja in the input directions. Functions similarly to Pikachu's Quick Attack. (2% (per shot))

v : Substitute -  Greninja enters a defensive stance. If attacked, it disappears with a Substitute doll or a log taking its place before countering with a flying kick upon reappearing. The kick's direction can be input while Greninja has vanished. The latter portion of the move can act either as a semi-spike or even as a meteor smash. (14%, 13%, 11%, 13%, 14% (based on timing))

F : Secret Ninja Attack -  Greninja launches opponents into the air with Mat Block, its signature move in the Pokémon games, before it proceeds to slash them several times in midair while a moonlit backdrop appears and then finally spikes them down to the stage with a downward knifehand strike. (2% (snag), 5% (flip), 2% (hits 1-15), 15% (hit 16))
