  3. Why did nobody consider Decidueye as a Greninja echo?

Its a bit late now, but nobody ever considered Decidueye being a Greninja echo. They both share Shadow Sneak and Substitute, Water Shuriken could become Spirit Shackle, and Hydro Pump could easily become Acrobatics (especially since Extreme Speed is Lucario's up special). T

The main difference would probably be move properties and animations, but could still be an easy echo.

Lucario could work as well I guess, but would be better as a semi-clone cause I don't see what Force-Palm would become.

Because Greninja and Decidueye have radically different proportions, and at the very least one of Greninja's attacks uses a bone that decidueye doesn't even have (utilt)

Didn't consider the in game height aspect, used to looking at Greninja in the anime where he usually stands up straight.

Because even among echoes that's stretching it a little too far.

If Greninja stood up straight, then not really.

His shurikens are slower than his arrows would be and would have different hit boxes.
Side and down special don't make sense because he is an archer, not a ninja

You have a point with the arrows.

Side and down special works completely fine. Its not the fact that Decidueye isn't a ninja, its that they learn Shadow Sneak and Substitute in the games, so its plausible that they are able to use the moves.

Pikachu uses thunderjolt, a move that isn't even in the games. The moves the Pokemon use are chosen based on who the Pokemon is and not what moves they learn in the game
