Frogadier (Japanese: ゲコガシラ Gekogashira) is a Water-type Pokémon introduced in Generation VI.

It evolves from Froakie starting at level 16 and evolves into Greninja starting at level 36.

Biology

Frogadier is a light-blue, bipedal, frog-like Pokémon. A dark blue marking covers its head and forms a three-pointed mark down its upper back. Its eyes have yellow sclerae, black irises, and white pupils. Its eyes protrude slightly from the top of its head and each has a backward-facing spike above it. It has a white bubble scarf, dark blue hands and circular toes, and white circular fingers.

Frogadier is a nimble and swift Pokémon; it can scale a tower exceeding 2,000 feet (600 meters) in one minute. It can also throw bubble-coated pebbles at targets up to 100 feet (30 meters) away. It can confound opponents by leaping about ceilings or into trees[1]

Trivia

Origin

Frogadier is based on a frog. Considering its crouched pose, dark blue "hooded" face and upper body, as well as its scarf-like foam, Frogadier is more than likely based on a ninja as well. The spiked protrusions above its eyes may have been inspired by horned frogs from the genera Megophrys and Ceratophrys. Its bubbling white foam is a reference to frog foam nests, created by some species such as the túngara frog and grey foam-nest tree frog to protect eggs.

Frogadier was shown in the anime to be able to run on the surface of water, which could be a reference to ninjas supposedly being able to walk on water using mizugumos.

Name origin

Frogadier may be a combination frog and brigadier or grenadier.

Gekogashira may be a combination of げこっ geko (croak) and 若頭 wakagashira (a young Yakuza subordinate leader) or 小頭 kogashira (head of an organizational section).
