On the first turn, Greninja will use "Toxic Spikes" and "Double Team" which are fixed. Since the avoidance rate has been increased, it is harder for your moves to hit.

Dream Ball Greninja will be unlocked

Dream Ball

Greninja with Rare Pokeballs, such as Kurt's Pokeballs, have already been unlocked in previous games, but this is the first time that Greninja with Dream Balls have been unlocked. It may be good to use the Dream Ball to capture the Unrivaled Greninja.

The 2nd One Can Only Be Obtained By Breeding

Breeding Walkthrough
Add the Unrivaled Greninja and Ditto in your Pokemon team
Use the Egg Power then start up a Picnic
Wait about 30 seconds and check inside the Basket and press the A Button and find Eggs
Have the Eggs inside your team and walk around or ride your Legendary Ride
Best Breeding Guide

Can Greninja be Changed into Ash Greninja By Battle Bond?

Not Able To Get Ability "Battle Bond"

Ash Greninja

Ash's Greninja that appeared in Sun and Moon, had a special Ability [Battle Bond] which allowed Greninja to form. The Mighty Greninja's Ability is "Protean" which is fixed, so even with its Eggs, you will not be able to get this special ability.

Ability Cannot Be Changed

Battle Bond is a special Ability, so you will not be able to change it with items like Ability Capsule or Ability Patch.

Maybe Bring It From Pokemon HOME?

Pokemon Home Transfer

In Feburary, when the Pokemon HOME is connected, there is a chance to bring Greninja that has the Ability "Battle Bond" into the game. This Greninja is only avaiable in the 3DS Sun and Moon's Exclusive demo.

▶Pokemon HOME Support & Release Date

Even If You Bring It In, You Can't Reroll For Shiny?

During the Sun and Moon, the Ability [Battle Bond] Greninja was not able to make Eggs, even if the partner was a Ditto. So there is a high chance, that even in this series, you will not be able to make any Eggs from this Individual.

Battle Bond is a special Ability and cannot be obtained by changing the Ability with an Ability Capsule or Ability Patch.

You Can't Breed An Ash Greninja Even If Greninja Has The Battle Bond

In Sun and Moon, Greninja with Ability Battle Bond could not breed Eggs even if it is put with Ditto. Therefore, if the Unrivaled Greninja with Battle Bond appears this time, there is a high possibility that you cannot obtain the second and subsequent Greninja from Eggs.

Gastrodon with Storm Drain as an ability and earth power/recover/clear smog/ [flex] is another great option. I'm not 100% if it redirects other's players water attacks to you, but it sure helps a lot.
