I got ash-greninja through the sun/moon demo and ended up with quiet nature and forgot to soft reset for a better one. I want to use greninja competitively so should I keep quiet ash-greninja or get normal greninja with a good nature?

I'd like to know what to do too. I wonder if I start a new game then will I be able to transfer Ash-Greninja again? Unfortunately, I can't start a new game without losing my Mewnium Z. http://pokemondb.net/pokebase/276781/what-to-do-if-i-want-to-start-a-new-game-without-losing-my-items
stop plugging you're question where it isn't relevant. someone will get to it, it hasnt even been up a half hour
if the normal greninja is protean use that, if its not, its worthless

Your Ash-Greninja, to put it bluntly, is not worth much competitively. Protean has always seemed like a better ability to me.. Stick with Protean and get your hands on a Protean Froakie. It shouldn't be too hard, as nobody would bring a Torrent Froakie to Sun/Moon.

Battle boost does boost stats, but protean works without having to KO a Pokémon and is probably one of the best abilities out there.

Battle Bond also boosts both attack stats and speed by quite a bit once activated.
I use it and if used properly it is a force to be reckoned with.
both it's attack stats are boosted by FIFTY, battle bond does not only boost water shuriken
Ok thanks. Will fix

If you can get Protean Greninja with a decent nature, that's considerably better, especially if it's transferred over from ORAS and has Gunk Shot.

Otherwise, stick with Ash-Greninja. Even with 10% less speed, it's still fast and hits insanely hard, especially since Water Shuriken is both priority and impressively strong (only STAB Extremespeed and Sucker Punch are stronger).
