Why is Greninja part Dark?

Ninja are deceitful and use a lot of underhanded tactics.

It would be very rare to actually see a real ninja fight someone face to face. It would usually be using an everyday item that was sharp as a weapon like a kunai.

Kunai were originally farming tools, ninja adapted them and used them because while dressed like a peasant farmer they could carry one without being suspicious.

Ninjas rely on stealth, trickery, traps and tools, and are masters of assassination using whatever means necessary to get the job done.

Dark type fits it just fine. Please don't use bad shonen as an example of how ninjas are.

I didn't use Naruto - I don't watch that.

One Piece all the way!!

But I thought Ninjas are fighters. Don't they wear Gi's and headbands?

They can fight, sure. There's no denying that. However, they fight dirty, and from the shadows. Ergo, dark type. Dark makes more sense for a ninja than fighting - even though in Pokemon mythos bug type is typically where ninjas find themselves. Ninjask, Accelgor. Roserade is described as being "ninja-like". No fighting types in that, nor dark types.
