Here is our complete guide to Greninja, a ranged Attacker in Pokémon Unite. From best items to the right move choices, our build guide should help you dominate on the field of battle.

Pokémon Unite: Greninja Build Guide

Greninja is another Pokémon you can get for free in Pokémon Unite, given away on the last day of the 14-Day Welcome Gifts promotion.

Our guide helps you understand Greninja's moveset and choose the best abilities as you level up, as well as suggest the best Held Items and Battle Items to equip.

You'll start the battle as Froakie, evolving into Frogadier at Level 5 and Greninja at Level 7.

These are the items we recommend equipping on Greninja before you head into battle.

Greninja is one of the few Pokémon that can be thought of as a point "marker". It can sow confusion in the minds of opposing players, while mischievously scoring goals.

The item choices reflect this, with Float Stone granting extra mobility. Muscle Band and Energy Amplifier just help its damage output, both individually and in team battles.

Naturally, as an Attacker, Eject Button is the disengage tool you need.

Greninja: Best Moves

Between Smokescreen and Water Shuriken, Greninja beciomes an Attacker adept at diving in and out of battle, avoiding taking major damage itself.
