I've loved Froakie since the announcement, and can testify to how amazing Protean Greninja is.

Mine runs Extrasensory, Dark Pulse, Scale and Ice Beam while holding as Expert Belt.

He hits like a truck, confuses opponents and has such a great range of resists/immunities.

I don't know if he can learn Ghost Special Attacks, but if he can...

STAB
Same type attack bonus
If a water type pokemon uses a water type attack than it deals 1.5 times the damage a normal type pokemon would do if it uses a water type attack

SE
It's super effective.
If a fire type Pokemon is hit by a water type move, it will get 2 times the damage a normal type pokemon would get if that one was hit by a water type move

NVE
It's not very effective.
If a grass type Pokemon is hit by a water type move, it will get 0.5 times the damage a normal type pokemon would get if that one was hit by a water type move.


And now imagine what happens if a STAB attack hits a Pokemon for SE damage.
