Best Greninja-Counter Lead?

#1Cuppa_AcePosted 4/24/2014 6:57:32 AM
I really enjoy playing wifi singles, but the one thing I seem to run into more then anything is Protean Greninja leads. Yes they're usually easily taken down but not without taking a massive blow or even losing a Poke in the process.

Can anyone recommend specifically a good lead to counter Greninja? Something that can outspeed OHKO or take a hit, laugh and dish a massive hit back?

Flame Orb guts Conkelldur with mach punch.

And if they have a ghost on their team you can always predict the switch with knock off.

Scarfed electric types? And if it's clear they're going to switch you can Volt Switch, or HP Ice if they have the balls to go straight for their Landorus.

Only if your opponent has no priority on their team whatsoever. A one for one is not worth relying on.
