Ash-Greninja is a form of Greninja that only exists inside of battle. Ash-Greninja has the unique ability Battle Bond, which allows any Greninja with this ability to transform into Ash-Greninja form if it kills a Pokemon in a trainer battle and other Pokemon remain on the opposing trainer's team.
How To Obtain
The following requirements must be met in order to catch an Ash-Greninja:
- Must be fishing with a Super Rod.
- Must be in a Swamp Biome.
- The lure must be in deep water, meaning it must be at least 4 blocks deep.
If all above requirements are met, you have a small chance of fishing a Greninja with Battle Bond. These chances can be further edited in the External JSON files for Better Spawner at your discretion.
A Greninja that transforms into Ash-Greninja in battle has the following effects:
- Water Shuriken's base power increases from 15 to 20.
- Water Shuriken makes contact at minimum 3 times.
If an Ash-Greninja is to die in battle and is then revived in the same battle, it will no longer hold its Ash-Greninja form and can no longer switch back to the form for the remainder of that battle.
The Poké Editor does not currently work for Ash-Greninja, so to obtain it via commands, you must run the following:
