I was breeding and I really can't get the froakie I want, and when I do it has torrent ability :/
is this one good enough for competitive battling?
Froakie - Protean
31/31/23-26/31/31/31
It's annoying how my ditto had 31 in attk but not in def. I used this froakie with a 31/x/31/x/x/x but I can't seem to get one, filled a few boxes with reject Froakies.
The ones I keep getting are
Froakie - Torrent
31/x/31/31/31/31

Why not get one like this and replace the froakie with two 31 ivs? That would increase your chances by a lot.

Yea it does, but then the ability is ALWAYS torrent. It's so annoying, plus the genders I get are always males. :/

Good enough depends on how competitive you want to be. Ideally, you wouldn't settle for less than perfect.

I've been breeding froakies for a while now, and that's the highest I can get so far.. I really want one with 5 Ivs and x in atk. grr. Any suggestions? I keep getting torrent but the parent has protean. :/

As long as one of the parents has protean, it has a chance to appear on the babies. So use the best IV parents as you can and still keep protean available and you'll get one soon enough.

This is why i hate the unnecessary perfectionist trend here on Gamefaqs. Dude, your defense is only around 8 points lower than max, if not, then only by 5 points. It's such a small factor, it doesn't actually matter for a Pokemon like Greninja (he's going to be frail regardless). Of course that Froakie is viable competitively, and you're only doubting it's not because of the weird OCD that Gamefaqs has. I reckon use it and move on to the next Pokemon you desire to be bred for competitive play.

Destiny Knot only ensures 5 stats max are inherited, your last stat will always be random. Even if Def was inherited, another stat would not be.

Greninja has utterly crap defensive stats anyways; I doubt the extra 5-8 defense is going to help him any. He has perfect Atk, Sp. Atk, and Speed IVs, and for a sweeper, isn't that about all you REALLY need, unless they're bulky enough to take a hit or two?
