As you all know (or may not if you are brand new) BREAKpoint has been released with some powerful new cards. Amongst them is a powerful new BREAK Pokémon, Greninja.
I believe the BREAK’s ability combined with the XY and BKP Greninja is a force to be reckoned with.
This is the list I have been playing with so far. It is far from perfect but it has been working for me for the most part.
4 Froakie BKP
4 Frogadier BKP
2 Greninja BKP
2 Greninja XY
3 Greninja Break BKP
2 Shaymin EX ROS
1 Jirachi XY67
4 Professor Sycamore
1 Giovanni’s Scheme
2 Rough Seas
4 Vs Seeker
3 Ultra Ball
2 Dive Ball
2 Float Stone
1 Professor’s Letter
1 Sacres Ash
2 Rare Candy
The idea is to get out a couple Froakie. Evolve 1 to Frogadier and use Water Duplicates and get 1-3 Frogadiers out. Finally you evolve them to Greninjas followed soon after by BREAKs and make it rain on your opponents pokemon.
Your preferred attacker is the new Greninja from the set. For a single water you can either hit them for 40 and lock their abilities (Shadow Stitching) or use its second attack that does 60 and increase the damage by 20 by returning a water energy attached to Greninja to your hand (Moonlight Slash). This Greninja also has free retreat so you can switch to another Greninja. This is really important for chaining Giant Water Shurikens.
As I’ve seen online, our lists will differ due to preference but there are a few cards I feel are needed in this deck.
Fisherman: Easily one of the best cards in this deck. This card has singlehandedly won me games just because you can drop so much damage on your opponents board.
Wally: I know this seems like a strange inclusion but this really speeds the deck up. Not going first is really bad for this deck (and even worse in the mirror) but a Wally going second can help you keep up by getting a first turn with a few Frogadiers out.
Splash Energy: this is probably an obvious inclusion but this allows you to keep streaming your BREAKs because pokemon are returned to your hand when they are KOed by an attack.
It is essentially a stage 3 deck but it can keep up with the decks that are out today. It’s lots of fun to play. What cards are you playing it with?
