    Wow that’s incredibly strong, good lord. I’d honestly run 1-2 of him in expanded since there are enough ways to spread damage counters

    • Greninja - the first atk.. Is basically Gardevoir Lv. X from Secret Wonders. But the HP can't cope it up the fact that it can only target below 120 HP Pokémon. That means you can OHKO non-GX Mons like Koko, like Magcargo, like Oranguru. But as a tech on a spread deck? Not a fan because its a stage 2 and needs to chain evolve it, what I mean you need to evolve from a Frogadier that spreads damage counters. In a Greninja GX deck, I am go for it. But in some decks, no! 3-4 Geodudes

    Attack says "excluding this pokemon", so, as I understood, it will be able to knock out bigger threats without counting on his own HP.
    This one will be a hellish addition to Greninja break, any 180HP will be below other Greninja's range with just one Ability. furthermore, 2 abilities means straight KO to any 240 or less, and I'm not counting shrine or eventual Koko's.

    Surely a High tier card, no doubts, it's possibilities are so immense I can't even imagine.

    Isn't the ability lock Greninja still better in Expanded though for Greninja Break? In Standard spread, Honchkrow is better imo as it is only a stage 1. Still, interesting card.

    The fact that u need to evolve it, attach dce to it, AND THEN fulfill another requirement to get a knockout... Nay? :confused:

    Decent, I suppose. Obviously and as heavily previously stated, it goes well with Greninja BREAK or Greninja GX, pick your format.
    Is it good otherwise? Absolutely not. Why target weakened Pokémon when you can just Guzma and OHKO? Plus, it’s a big commitment to put in a deck, at least 3 spaces if you're not running any other frogs...

    I assume that because it says remaining hp than you can knock out a full health Pokémon that has less hp than your own

    This could have a place as a surprise finisher in that Greninja-GX/Meganium deck, since it already plays the Froakie, it wouldn’t be hard to get this in play with Meganium, and the first attack has good synergy with the GX’s snipe ability

    Of course, who knows what the meta will look like come next May, so only time will tell
