Greninja is a large, bipedal, frog-like Pokémon. Its body and legs are purple, with single large white bubbles on its legs and arms and white spots over its eyes. Its back feet have two toes, while its front feet have three toes. Its feet are webbed, and it has a yellow chest and a yellow-and-purple face. It has eyes with white sclera, red irises, and white pupils. A large, projecting purple stripe runs down the middle of its head, with projecting blue stripes in between its large, yellow ears. Its mouth is hidden behind a large, pink tongue that wraps around Greninja's neck and extends outward behind its head.
Greninja moves with the speed and grace of a ninja, using swift movements to confuse its enemies while it slices them up with throwing stars made of compressed water; these throwing stars are sharp enough to split metal. Greninja is the only known Pokémon capable of learning Water Shuriken and Mat Block.
