Which one is better?

asked by
Typically, Greninja, whatwith Protean and Battle Bond Water Shuriken. However, depending on a number of other reasons, Sheer Force Life Orb Feraligatr is a definite force to be reckoned with that can break apart unprepared teams in the lower tiers.
In which format?
Ash-Greninja or just regular Greninja?
It really depends what role you want  to use them for.
I can't comment on your wall, so I will do it here. If you're going to keep asking these comparison questions, that's fine. But please, please, please give more information. Right now they're too vague and we're trying to avoid open-ended questions as much as possible. Give specifics like what tier and format you're playing, and what their role is (i.e. which is better for tanking damage?). If you don't provide specifics then the question will be hidden.

It can learn Normal-, Water-, Ice-, Fighting-, Ground-, Flying-, Rock-, Ghost-, Dragon-, and Dark-type moves as TMs. It can also learn Normal-, Water-, Ice-, Rock-, Dark-, and Steel-type moves as egg moves.

By stats, Ash-Greninja has the highest BST of 640 compared to Greninja(530) and Feraligatr(530). Feraligatr has the highest HP stat(085), Defense stat(100), and Special Defense stat(083) compared to Greninja and Ash-Greninja(HP of 072, Defense of 067, and Special Defense of 071). Ash-Greninja has the highest Attack stat(145), Special Attack stat(153), and Speed stat(132) compared to Greninja(Attack of 095, Special Attack of 103, and Speed of 122) and Feraligatr(Attack of 105, Special Attack of 079, and Speed of 078).

By moves, both Greninja(Ash-Greninja) and Feraligatr can learn 5 different types of moves through level-up. Feraligatr can learn 10 different types of moves as TMs compared to Greninja(Ash-Greninja)'s eight. Feraligatr is the only one that can learn "Physical" egg-moves (6 of different type), but Greninja(Ash-Greninja) can learn Normal-, Water-, Poison, and Ground-type (4) "Status" moves as egg-moves.

By typing, Greninja has one more immunity than Feraligatr, has 2 more resistances than Feraligatr (which has 4), but has 3 more weaknesses than Feraligatr (which only has 2).

I know nothing on competitive play. But, I know which Pokémon is better in terms of typing, stats, and the number of different types in can learn from either TM or level-up.
