    I am bored as hell, really curios about Greninja GX since I like snipe Pokémons, so care to join me in this totally pointless thread?
    What do you expect from this card?
    We had a little sneak peak, go in the news section for a 2 pixel photo of the card.
    Thumbs up to those who can predict closely enough what it does :v

    Sure, I'll take a crack. Greninja has a history of low-cost, interesting-effect attacks, but I *think* both its regular attack and the GX attack are [W][C][C] from what I can make out? I also think I can make out a 1 retreat cost. The GX attack doesn't seem to have a base damage, but I think I can make out *some* sort of number for the main attack? No idea what it is, but I get the sense it'll be north of 100 base. And I wouldn't be surprised if it continues the new Frogadier's theme to give us our effective "bats" replacement.

    Therefore, a guess:

    Greninja-GX - Water - HP230
    Stage 2 Pokemon-GX - Evolves from Frogadier
    Ability: Ninja Strike
    When you play this card down to evolve 1 of your Pokemon, you may place 4 damage counters on your opponent's Pokemon in any way you like.
    [W][C][C] Silencing Blow - 130 damage - The Defending Pokemon can't attack during your opponent's next turn.
    [W][C][C] Shuriken Storm GX - Discard as many [W] Energy from your hand as you like. For each [W] Energy discarded in this way, choose 1 of your opponent's Pokemon and deal 50 damage to it. (Don't apply Weakness and Resistance to Benched Pokemon.) (You can't use more than one GX attack per game.)
    When 1 of your Pokemon-GX is Knocked Out, your opponent takes 2 Prize cards.
    weakness: Grass x2
    resistance: none
    retreat cost: [C]

    I'm sure we'll get the reveal soon enough.

    Lets say that since Frogadier has Golbat's Ability, we can assume Greninja has a similar ability to Crobat that will be slightly more powerful, and if so, who would be a good partner in the current standard format for the Frogs?

    Welp I didn't give mine
    As the ability I would expect 4/5 damage counters on a target or divided between multiple targets, 6 or over would be too good as it one shots most basics. Or we could see 2 on every pokemon on the opposite side, would be nice too.
    As the attack I would expect a disruptive effect, not preventing attacks as it would be way too op. Maybe it will be a classic snipe, maybe with a twist (100 - 30 divided between the opponent's bench).
    The GX I would like to see something that has to do with damage counters.
    Something like ''for every damage counter on this pokemon (or maybe the opponent's active), place that many counters on the opponent's pokemon in any way you like''.

    BOIIII you version is way too overpowered.

    Greninja GX - Water - HP 80
    Stage 2 Pokémon GX
    Evolves from: Frogadier

    Ability - Foreseen Force:
    If you play this Pokémon from your hand to evolve 1 of your Pokémon, then you are obviously a Greninja fanboy who only bothers with popular mainstream Pokémon. You are only slightly better than a Gardevoir player. Penalty: this Pokémon is knocked out.

    (kidding ofcourse)

    Greninja GX - Water - 230HP

    Ability - Shuriken Splice:

    When you play this Pokemon from your hand onto your bench, you may put 4 damage counters on 1 of your opponent's Pokemon.

    [W][C][C] Giant Bubble: 90 Damage

    Flip a coin, if heads, your opponent's active Pokemon is now Paralyzed.

    [W][C][C] Anime Logic GX: If your opponent has Charizard in play, they take 6 prize cards, despite you having the clearly superior matchup and breaking the hearts and souls of millions of children as they realise Ash Ketchum can never be a true Pokemon Master.
