Pokemon Scarlet and Violet can be filled to the brim with Pokemon for you to catch, but sometimes that’s not enough. Despite the hundreds available in the game, sometimes your favorite has missed the mark and hasn’t been added, or others need a bit more work to track down.

One of the most demanded is Greninja – a generation six pokemon that quickly became a fan favorite. If you’ve spent your time looking for one, but haven’t been able to, here’s how to get Greninja Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.

First, it’s important to note that you can’t get Greninja the traditional way. You won’t find them when you explore the world, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get Greninja at all.

Although Greninja may not be part of the initial Pokemon Scarlet and Violet selection, post-launch content added the ability to capture them. A 7-Star Tera Raid event will allow players to battle Greninja and gain the ability to get them.

One of these events took place in January, which is now over, but another one will take place from now on February 10 to February 12. During this period, players can take part in a challenging battle against Greninja. We also have the best Vaporeon build you can use to win against this raid.

Before players can tackle a 7-Star Tera Raid in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, they must unlock the 6-Star raids. This can be done by completing the game, conquering the Academy Ace Tournament and completing various raids.

If you find this quite challenging, don’t worry, there is another way to get into Geninja Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. If you know someone else who has caught one, they can breed one by using a Ditto.

To do this, Greninja and Ditto must be the only two Pokemon in their party and must organize a picnic. When you’re done, grab the eggs around the table and walk to your party with them. After a while, a Froakie hatches that can eventually evolve into Greninja.

It’s not the easiest to capture Pokemon Scarlet and VioletHowever, Greninja’s strength and movements more than make up for the effort it takes to catch them.
