Which Froakie should I train?

#1AuraWielderPosted 12/5/2013 7:56:49 AM
OK... after breeding for about two days, I've come to two options. I'm going to EV-train and use competitively one out of these two Froakies.

Froakie Number 1:
Perfect IVs in everything but Attack, which I do not plan on using. "Outstanding" potential. Nature is Timid, but Ability is Torrent.

Froakie Number 2:
Perfect IVs in Special Attack, Special Defense, and Speed. "Outstanding" potential. Nature is Timid, but Ability is Protean.

Which one?

Protean is what makes him good. Also, for kicks and giggles, check the Hidden Power of the second one.

I was thinking about names as well.

If I go with the first Froakie, who is female, I'll name her 'Sheik', from "The Legend of Zelda".
If I go with the second Froakie, who is male, I'll name him 'Shadow' from "Final Fantasy VI".

This. A good Hidden Power can completely screw with a lot of Greninja's normal counters.

And you don't want any Froakie that doesn't have Protean. It's the only reason Greninja gets such high usage.

The Hidden Power type is Ice. Good or not?

HP Ice is irrelevant since it gets Ice Beam

Yeah, the Torrent one is American. :/
Still, I'm going with this one. I just won't use Hidden Power.
Question though, should I go with Surf or Hydro Pump once it evolves into Greninja? I know Hydro Pump is more powerful, though I'm really not fond of that 70% accuracy. Personally, I'd rather go with the much more reliable Surf.

Same nature and IVs, only with Protean?
I'd really appreciate it.
