So, are you asking if it is possible or how to do it? :P
He is talking about ash in the anime’s greninja
The games and the TV show are made by completely different people. There are probably more differences than similarities.

The anime does not follow the logic of the games.

I know this has a BA, but I want to point just a little bit out.

So, Greninja has an ability called Battle Bond, and if you faint another Pokémon you can transform into Ash-Greninja. The ability else in the anime because it's hard to express in a game while you are fighting in "full potential". So the games decided to make it easier and said if you faint a Pokémon you are fighting in full potential. And, you can't stand in there for a while and wall all the attacks since Greninja's defences aren't the best. So you'd have to be in form to OHKO or 2HKO or 3HKO (dunno) a Pokémon.
