I started with a female Froakie in Pokemon X, but I did not know you had to have a male to breed. I finished the game but I want to breed my Greninja. How can I do that?

1 Answer 1


You can breed almost any Pokemon with Dittos regardless of gender. Ditto can be caught in the Pokemon Village or in certain Normal-type Friend Safaris.

Alternatively, as your Greninja is female, you can breed it with a male of a different type of Pokemon, so long as the male is in the same egg group as the Froakie evolutionary line.

Froakie and its evolutions are in the Water 1 egg group, which contains 108 Pokemon. For example, Poliwag, Psyduck and Marrill are all in Water 1 and relatively accessible to catch in-game.

    Realistically though, there's rarely a reason to use anything but a Ditto. If you don't care about competitive play, there is zero reason not to use a Ditto.

    @ApologizeandreinstateMonica The reason to not use a ditto would be that you don't have a ditto, but you have some other Pokémon from the egg group that works. Or if you're trying to pass on egg moves / nature's

    Yeah that's why I added it. OP likely already has other Pokemon in Water 1, they may not have a ditto
