Yes or No?

Breloom uses Mach Punch!

Does it 2HKO or OHKO?

252 Atk Muscle Band Technician Breloom Mach Punch vs. 4 HP / 0 Def Greninja: 302-356 (105.5 - 124.4%) -- guaranteed OHKO

The answer is yes.

It's not a counter. Ice Beam OHKO's Breloom and Hydro Pump is a 2HKO, and it can't beat Greninja in one Mach Punch if it is mono-Water

If Greninja predicts the Grass type coming in and throws an Ice Beam, good night Breloom.

252 SpA Life Orb Protean Greninja Ice Beam vs. 4 HP / 0 SpD Breloom: 491-580 (187.4 - 221.3%) -- guaranteed OHKO

If both come out at the same time, Greninja is getting the **** out of there.

252 SpA Protean Greninja Ice Beam vs. 252 HP / 0 SpD Breloom: 378-446 (116.6 - 137.6%) -- guaranteed OHKO

He's not a counter, because if Greninja is already out then you can't switch in. Mach Punch is only a OHKO if he's weak to fighting or already around half health, so you can't reliably revenge kill either. Breloom's a good pokemon, but he's not great for dealing with Greninja.

If it runs shadow sneak, bye bye mushroom.
