The Ultimate Super Smash Bros Character Guide Greninja

first_img Greninja Makes A Splash!Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is huge. Not just in terms of hype and importance and sales potential, but just in terms of sheer stuff. The Nintendo Switch mascot fighter features over a hundred stages, nearly a thousand songs, and too many Pokemon and items and Assist Trophies to think of crammed onto a cartridge you can plan on the go or on a TV. When you have as many big franchises as Nintendo, putting them all in one game will make that game is very big boy indeed.But the biggest, most exciting thing about Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is its mind-blowing, heartwarming roster of playable characters. Fighting games pride themselves not just on the strength of their mechanics but the strength of its fighters, especially in a crossover fighters like this. And Super Smash Bros. Ultimate crushes all rivals by including every single playable character from the across the four previous games in the twenty-year-old series. Include the new combatants and so far we have over 70 fighters to wrap our heads around. We’re excited, but we’re also intimidated. So to get ready for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, every day, character by character, we’re creating the ultimate guide to all of its characters. Today’s fighter: Greninja. Stay on target ‘Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’ Was Final Mission From Late Nintendo President‘Undertale’s’ Sans Is Basically a Brand New ‘Sma… center_img Who Are They?Greninja is yet another late-period Pokemon, the final evolution of sixth generation water-type Froakie. It’s a suave amphibian ninja who wraps its tongue around its neck like a scarf. It’s so cool you forget how gross that is. I guess it only makes that the best starter Pokemon in a game set in a fake version of France is a wet dark frog man who can absolutely get it.Smash HistoryOnce again, there was such a long gap between Smash Bros. games that an entire generation of Pokemon had to be skipped. It’s a shame, too, because Pokemon Black and White are better than Pokemon X and Y. With only Charizard returning from Pokemon Trainer in Smash Wii U/3DS there was an opening for a new water-type. And Greninja managed to sneak in.What Looks New in Ultimate?Greninja is a frog ninja who controls water. So of course its playstyle revolves around being slippery. Its water shuriken keep you at a distance. It can counter and travel through the shadows. Even just its general movement and traction have an appropriate looseness. Not much has changed in Ultimate aside from mild general buffs. It uses water knives now instead of water swords?Our Hopes?With Charizard and Greninja, all we’re missing is a final evolution of a grass-type Pokemon, my preferred starter. We already missed one opportunity by picking Incineroar over Decidueye. Maybe the next generation of Pokemon on Nintendo Switch next holiday will have a cool grass Pokemon finally worthy of joining the battle.Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is available now.
