Just like all of the other Water-type starters, Greninja will learn Hydro Cannon, which will be a powerful addition to its movepool. You can also use a Fast TM to teach Greninja Water Shuriken, which is a Fast Move.

Here's a quick look at what the shiny versions of this family of Pokémon:
The event is looking pretty good. Greninja has a very popular Shiny, though unfortunately we won't be getting Ash-Greninja at this time. Hydro Cannon is a great move, and it should work very well with Greninja! Be sure to get a few good ones for your collection!
