Toxicroak Ultra LeagueBulbapedia

One of the best counters to Pokemon Scarlet & Violet’s 7-star Greninja Tera Raids is another humanoid frog with a knack for Poison-type moves. Here’s the best Toxicroak build to take on Greninja.

The 7-Star Unrivaled Greninja Tera Raid event has begun in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet, and it has the potential to be the most difficult Tera Raid yet. With a stacked six-move arsenal and dynamic typing, players have to work together to take down this beast.

However, calling the frog “unrivaled” is a bit misleading as another frog-like Pokemon gets the job done. Toxicroak may seem like a weak link at first glance due to its typing, but this Pokemon actually holds its own with the proper ability and moveset.

Here’s how to build the best Toxicroak for 7-star Greninja raids in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet.

Best Toxicroak for Greninja Tera Raids

Toxicroak is an attacker meaning its moveset will revolve around increasing its damage output and exploiting Greninja’s weaknesses. And this starts with Swords Dance, a status move that boosts the user’s attack by two stages. Use this move three times to max out Toxicroak’s attack stat.

However, players will likely want to begin the match with Taunt as it will keep Greninja from using Status moves like Toxic Spikes or Double Team. Once the player’s attack is maxed, use Earthquake to deal the most damage. And once Greninja pops its shield, use Acid Spray to lower its Defenses and chip away at its health.

You’ll want to make sure you give Toxicroak the Ability Shield to hold so Greninja cant nullify its Dry Skin ability. And focusing on training its HP and Attack stats will ensure it can deal even more damage and stay in the fight longer.
