PSA: You can hatch a Froakie in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet

Get your Greninja while you can!

Recommended Videos

In case you missed it, the Pokemon Scarlet & Violet Greninja event is underway, and there are two opportunities to catch it. Once you do get one just like the prior event Pokemon, they can be bred! Here’s what you get when you do it.

Bring Greninja and Ditto to a picnic

Just like Charizard and Cinderace, you can hatch an egg with a Ditto and a Greninja at a picnic and create a Froakie. This effectively gets by the “only one Greninja can be caught per save file” restriction for the Tera Raid event.

If you need a refresh, we have a full guide on where to find Ditto here, and a comprehensive guide on egg hatching here. All you need to do is wait and you can create multiple eggs to trade away to folks, or keep for yourself.

In Pokemon Scarlet & Violet, Froakie still evolves into Frogadier at level 16, and Greninja at level 36

The evolutionary methodology is the same as the old game line, so you can evolve Froakie into Frogadier (level 16) into Greninja (level 36) on your own terms, and completely raise a brand new Pokemon.

By default, a hatched Froakie comes with the following moves:

  • Pound (35/35)
  • Growl (40/40)
