How to play Greninja in Pokemon Unite
The Greninja, a favorite of Kalos, lives up to its reputation as one of the game’s stealthiest ‘mon in Pokemon UNITE. Its combination of attack damage and mobility makes it an ideal flanking and goal-scoring character.
Its basic strike deals more damage as the player gets further away from the enemy, while also slowing down the other player’s speed.
At level five, we recommend upgrading Bubble with Water Shuriken, which grants both a speed boost and restores the player’s HP after each hit.
At level seven, Substitute may be improved to Double Team, which grants Greninja the ability to vanish for a short time while generating clones of himself.
While Smokescreen would be immensely useful as an escape, Greninja can already rush away and hide in tall grass because to his increased speed.
Finally, when the Water-type starter gets its powerful Waterburst Shuriken Unite move at level nine, the Water-type starter’s weakest area, AOE damage, is solved.
The Greninja should be utilized to poke the enemy team’s Defenders and Tanks, causing them to flee the goal area. It can be used to score goals or rush Legendary enemies because of its persistent speed enhancements.
