Best moveset for Protean Greninja?

#1yoshinator112Posted 11/3/2013 11:28:06 PM
Currently running

Extrasensory
Hydro Pump
Ice Beam
Mat Block (For Double Battles because I open up with Greninja and Aegislash)

Are there any other great SpAtk moves he can learn that aren't these 3 types? I know he can learn Dark Pulse (which I can't find anywhere) and Grass Knot.

Dark Pulse is a TM.

It seems that the favorite build right now is:

Nature: Hasty
EVs: 252 SPA // 252 SPE // 4 ATK
Item: Life Orb
Hydro Pump
Ice Beam
Dark Pulse
U-Turn / Hidden Power Fire / Grass Knot

I was so used to beating greninjas online with my Charizard Y 100% of the time

Then the rock slide nation attacked

It was never the same

I'd go with Scald over Hydro Pump.

I'd get rid of Mat Block too but I don't really play doubles.

Dark Pulse is a TM.

Most Ninja's I see run: (sp. atkers)

Dark Pulse
Scald
Grass Knot
Ice Beam / Extrasensory

Hydro Pump is way too risky for me. It always misses at the worst time.

Huh, I didn't know he could learn U-Turn...might try that out, but mine's Modest so it won't pack a punch at all :/

Yeah, I've had some terrible experiences with it myself as well...though I mainly play Double Battles, so next best option for me would be Water Pulse, which has almost half the power of Hydro Pump. Surf isn't an option because of its much more consistent risk of hitting my own teammate, and my team is not strong on SpDEF aside from Aegislash.
