Froakie shiny in Pokemon GO would be one of the coolest additions to the game in recent months, especially with Kalos being brand new to the game. While you can catch regular Froakies, the highly popular Pokemon does not yet have a shiny version added to Pokemon GO. However, it is only a matter of time before Froakie and its evolutionary line get shiny versions added to the game.

Froakie Shiny Pokemon GO: Is it Available?

Froakie shiny in Pokemon GO is not available quite yet, but when it finally does come out it’ll be important to know about Froakie and its evolutions. Froakie evolves into Frogadier and finally into Greninja. Froakie itself isn’t terribly popular, but Greninja takes the prize in many popularity polls among fans. So much so that in mainline Pokemon games Greninja has had special appearances. The anime’s Ash has a special Greninja that can change forms into what the games call “Ash-Greninja,” and in Pokemon Sun and Moon players were able to use this special Ash-Greninja. It’s entirely possible that Pokemon GO will do the same thing in the future.

Even if Ash-Greninja were never added, Greninja on its own is incredibly powerful. The Water and Dark typing make it resistant to many popular move-types like Ghost, Steel, and Fire. And the range of moves it can learn makes it a valuable addition to any team.

Greninja can learn Bubble and Feint Attack as its quick moves and it has a choice between Aerial Ace, Night Slash, Hydro Pump, and Surf. Definitely a lot of water moves, so make sure to diversity the typing to help Greninja be the most effective Pokemon.
