    Linework and shading feels intentionally reminiscent of the XY anime. I bet it's a hit with fans.

    This is why people don't like greninja. It raises your expectations then loses the Kalos League for you!

    I think it's somewhat good. Attack makes ability abusing easier and erases all damage from 230HP body. GX-attack can smack something without Guzma.

    Why does Greninja GX have 2 retreat when the baby version has free retreat already? A retreat cost of 1 would've made more sense considering how fast Greninja is in the video games.

    That being said, someone better not drop this on their lap during a Sycamore and pull it out for a free 30 damage whenever.

    Giant water shuriken, 30 upon evolve -> 130 snipe clears up to 220 on bench, up to 250 on active. Very relevant numbers on this card.

    You'll never win anything if you can't play it from your lap

    I'm very indifferent about this card. Yes, it's a big bat, but... er... I feel like a card like this is going to have a hard time working in with our meta. I don't see how the GX attack is very special. Reminds me of Entei-GXs attack, just less damage, workable with DCE, and on a Stage 2. More-so closer to Tapu Fini-GX,which has a regular attack that does 10 less with a different cost, has to discard 2 [W], but is on a basic. Regular attack is... meh as well. It's the most unique thing about this card though, i'll give it props for that. Shuffle in is fun when you have lots of damage on, but having to get Greninja back into play is tedious. You don't have to use the shuffle-in, but 110 damage kinda sucks, considering Zoroark-GX, the 2nd most relevant mon in the meta, can hit 120 easily for a DCE, as a Stage 1, with an outstanding ability. I 'aint saying this card should be able to compete with Zoroark, but it should be able to damage juuust a bit more, and perhaps it's Ability is enough for that. Bats are back, yes, but are bats really going to work in a format like this? With so many mons with HPs in the 200s that require at least 2 attacks or 1 huge attack to KO? Also, it's worth it to mention this card's horrible retreat cost. If it was 3, this card would be arguably better. You're probably either going to use a [W] and a DCE or a float stone to retreat it anyways, and one thing i've seen people talk about is the longing for a Dive Ball reprint. If it had 3, we could run Heavy Ball, but it doesn't. Unlike the old bats, it doesn't have free retreat, and it's a 2-prize mon. It's all very iffy.

    TL;DR I'm not sure if this card will have a place in our metagame because it's flaws, to me, outshine it's positives.

    I like this idea. It's for sure interesting to think about, Water Dupes Frogadier does take a turn of Ability-lock, do keep in mind. Reminds me of to Decidueye/Glaceon, just seemingly less consistent, with the 1-time use evolution Abilities and all.

    Wait... hold up nevermind this card is garbage xP

    • Greninja-GX - Beefier HP, Garbage retreat cost, hoping that it will be a 0 RC Pokemon, expensive attacks. Was hoping for 1 W, oh well, 1 w and DCE will save it but still. This is new Bats. We have Froakie that functions almost like PLS Zubat, We have Frogadier that functions like Golbat but trash RC, and then we have Greninja-GX, whose like Crobat but too expensive and trashier RC. Oh well, I hope it'll see play. 4 Geodudes

    in expanded we saw toad with decidueye and toad with bats this is good in expanded as well and is better searched with dive ball but in standard it is a card i see as a 1 of in greninja break as it could be helpful in that capacity as you still run 4-4-4-2 plus 1 gx unlike the ability greninja which took away one of your ability lock ones
