Best Greninja Build in Pokemon Unite

Knock out your foes with Greninja, the ninja frog Pokemon!

Greninja is a ranged attacker that excels at moving around the battlefield dealing large amounts of damage. Greninja is unique in Pokemon Unite in that the Pokemon has both a melee and ranged auto-attack on the boosted hit. Below is a list of items and abilities that will create the best build to run when playing Greninja.


  • Bubble
    • Attacks with a spray of bubbles, decreasing movement speed of opposing Pokemon.
  • Smokescreen
    • Creates a smokescreen and Greninja rolls away from the location. This also causes the user to start sneaking and increases their speed. It also makes their next attack become a boosted attack.
  • Surf
    • User rides a wave, dealing damage and restoring their hp. This moves deals increased damage to Pokemon with low hp and has its cooldown reset if it knocks out an opposing Pokemon.
