    It's great if Greninja Gx has a similar ability, but more damages and attack that it returns in our hand.

    And Greninja-GX would put SIX COUNTERS, my bold prediction.

    Would hope for a repeatable ability like the break one,

    • Frogadier - This is better than Golbat since Froakie can be searched out with Brooklet Hill you don't need to worry about it. If Greninja will be a nice solid attacker, you can search 2 Frogadiers with Wake to spread 40 damage anywhere. Cross your fingers for Greninja-GX, and I hope it won't be as expensive as we expected. - 4 Geodudes for now.

    You probably still want to Water Duplicates though...

    Absolutely, at least until the new rotation.
    With water duplicates, assuming Greninja is a decent attacker and has a good ability, setting up is stupidly easy with a paired Zoroark and evosodas.

    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
    The point is you need to evolve the frogadier by hand to activate the ability, so it takes away the ability to combo water duplicates with evo sodas to get the Greninjas in play.
    It would have been stupidly powerful, but since it's not been shown we can still hope.

    Well since Greninja BREAK is going out of rotation this year I hope Greninja GX is just as if not more disgusting
    Based on Frogadier alone, I can see that

    Just for the GX atk. It's a waste of effort. It won't survive in the long-run
