Greninja is male in Ultimate[edit]

Because Greninja's Final Smash incorporates Ash-Greninja, that means the Greninja seen in Ultimate is male. As you can see on this Bulbapedia page, Ash-Greninja is always male, due to being an event Pokemon based on the Greninja Ash has in the X and Y anime. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Hinata2000100 (talkcontribs) 18:48, October 14, 2018‎

The reason the pronoun is "it" and not "he" is most likely to keep everything safe, like all the other Pokemon and Sheik. Personally, I think we should leave it ambiguous until concrete evidence that Smash Greninja is male. SugarCookie420 (talk) 19:06, 14 October 2018 (EDT)
While I think acknowledgement of Greninja's sex in the trivia section is perfectly fine, I think the pronouns used in the article should still be "it". It is standard to refer to Pokemon as "it", even if the sex of an individual is known. For example, Ash's Pikachu in the anime is definitively male, but it is consistently referred to as "it" instead of "he". Since the introduction of gendered Pikachus in Generation IV, it could be argued that the Pikachu in Smash has been male since Brawl, but we never switched to using masculine pronouns. I see no reason to switch to them now for Greninja. Nintendo101 (talk) 19:26, 14 October 2018 (EDT)
Oh, I definitely think we should keep the article itself gender-neutral. I was just offering evidence for the trivia point, as I noticed it was in contention for a bit. Hinata2000100 (talk) 19:29, 14 October 2018 (EDT)
I agree. We shall wait until the game releases, and see what the game calls him then. For now I’m happy to keep the trivia point in now. I very nearly did before, so. Black Vulpine of the Furry Nation. Furries make the internets go! :3 22:26, 14 October 2018 (EDT)

The only character you're likely gonna get a perfect with against Master Hand and Crazy Hand at 9.0 difficulty or higher.[edit]

I came CLOSE to mastering both hands, but a lil' theory, I'd say unless you're a Greninja Mainer who knows how to finish off brutal AI for in said Pokemon character's Classic Mode route, chances are you're not gonna get a perfect against both hands. I'd say it's only possible with Greninja based on its remarkable jump, fast speed in both the air AND the ground, and of course, it's down special counterattack against any hits it takes... just an ideal theory.

That's great, but this isn't exactly the best usage of a talk page. Aidan, the Rurouni 03:13, November 23, 2019 (EST)
