==History==
[[File:Y Croaky Froakie.png|thumb|left|200px|As a Froakie]]
Croaky was originally a [[starter Pokémon]] owned by [[Professor Sycamore]]. Croaky was first seen as a {{p|Froakie}} in ''[[PAXY01|An X-cuse to Come Out and Play]]'', where he was given to {{adv|Trevor}} alongside a [[Marisso|Chespin]] and [[{{TP|Malva's Fennekin|Fennekin]]}} in the hopes that {{adv|X}} would pick one and leave his house and go on a journey. His attempt was interrupted by the appearance of the [[Legendary Pokémon]] {{p[[Xerxer|Xerneas}}]] and {{p|Yveltal}}, which appeared in [[Vaniville Town]] and caused destruction as they fought each other. Although Trevor and his friends escaped, the case with {{p|Fennekin}}'s [[{{i|Poké Ball]]}} and [[Pokédex]] was lost during the chaos.
 
In ''[[PAXY04PAXY03|TheyInn-teresting Have a Flare for a Li'l Kanga-NappingDevelopments]]'', {{adv|Tierno}} presented Froakie and {{p|Chespin}} to X and reveals that he, Trevor, and {{adv|Shauna}} agreed that Froakie and Chespin should go to X and {{adv|Y}}, as they are the best battlers of the group. X refuses both of them as he does not want them to be constantly targeted and attacked by their enemies, [[Team Flare]], due to them being on his team. Later, Y finds the Team Flare scientists [[Aliana]] and [[Mable]] attempting to steal X's [[Kanga and Li'l Kanga|Li'l Kanga]]. When Mable attempts to have her {{p|Houndoom}} burn Y with its flames, Froakie saved Y with a wall of Frubbles. While X teamed up with Chespin to face Aliana's {{p|Diggersby}}, Froakie battled Mable's Houndoom. Eventually, X and Chespin managed to free X's friends from the room they were trapped in and pin Aliana and Mable to a tree, defeating them and giving X's group the chance to escape. Despite battling together, X still refused to let either Pokémon join him team.
 
In ''[[PAXY12|Fast-Thinking Froakie]]'', Y decidesis revealed to have decided to add Froakie to her team dueafter tohaving Xbeen keepinginspired Chespinby andX. givesWhile himdoing the nickname Croaky. Duringsome {{tc|Sky Trainer}} practice, an accident caused Y to fall to the ground., Shebut wasshe is saved by CroakyFroakie using his Frubbles to cushion the impact. AfterwardAs she thanks Froakie for saving her, Y decideddecides to give it the nickname Croaky. Afterwards, Y decides to end her training for the day and wentgoes in X's tent to change clothes in privacy. She is interrupted by an [[Élec|Electrike]] that stolesteals her regular clothes and ranruns offaway. After Croaky uses his Frubbles to create makeshift top for Y, the group chasedchases after the {{p|Electrike}}. With his speed and jumping skills, Croaky easily dodgeddodges Electrike's moves and managed to taketakes back Y's clothes.

In ''[[PAXY17|Shooting Frogadier]]'', Y and her friends endwere upsurrounded battlingby a group of Sky Trainers controlled by Team Flare while in a helicopter piloted by [[Cassius]]. AlthoughY theydecided won,to leave the battlehelicopter endedto upconfront damagingthe leading [[Yvette|Sky Trainer]]. Y won the helicopterbattle enoughagainst thather, itbut the helicopter began to break apart, forcing Cassius to make an emergency landing. One of the propeller blades broke off and hit Y in the head, causing her to be sent flying down towards {{rt|9|Kalos}}. Her fall was broken once again by Croaky's Frubbles. As she traveled the route to try and get back to her friends, Y found [[Malva]] and [[Celosia]] talking about their next plan. Celosia, sensing Y's presence behind a boulder, used her {{p|Honedge}} to try and destroy the boulder, but Y and Croaky dodged in time. Just as Celosia took another swing, Croaky [[evolution|evolved]] into a {{p|Frogadier}}, grabbed Y, and leaped high into the air. He then took a piece of the boulder that was knocked into the air, covered it in a Frubble, and tossed it at a group of wild {{p|Rhyhorn}}, startling them into stampeding in front of Malva and Celosia. This convinced the two Team Flare members that there wasn'twas not anyone else in the area. Afterward, Y began following Malva and Celosia to their next destination. Using his agility, Croaky stayed ahead of Y in the trees and alerted her when it was safe to move forward. With a trail of Frubbles he left behind, X and the others eventually managed to reach Y again.
 
In ''[[PAXY32|Malamar Traps]]'', the group traveled to [[Pokémon Village]] to find Team Flare after they went into hiding. Upon arriving, the group was attacked by [[Xerosic]], who used his {{p|Malamar}} to put everyone to sleep with {{m|Hypnosis}}. By evolving into a {{p|Greninja}} and blocking out the sound with his tongue, Croaky avoided falling asleep, allowing him to knock Malamar to the ground. When Malamar got back up, Croaky attempted to up his evasion while lowering Malamar's speed with {{m|Bubble}}, but due to a combination of {{m|Topsy-Turvy}} and {{a|Contrary}}, Croaky's attempts backfired, leaving him open to be put to sleep by Hypnosis.
 
[[PAXY34|Later]], Croaky was woken up by Y so that she, Trevor, Tierno, and Shauna could go on ahead to the [[Pokémon Village]]. With itshis {{m|Smokescreen}}, Y and the others were kept from Xerosic's view, allowing them to sneak by him completely undetected. [[PAXY37|When]] Trevor faced off against [[Bryony]] all by himself, Y lent Croaky to him so that he would stand a chance against the Team Flare Scientistscientist in battle. With Croaky's ninja skills, Trevor kept himself hidden from Bryony, allowing Croaky and {{p|Floette}} to defeat Bryony and her {{p|Bisharp}}.
 
==Personality and characteristics==
Croaky is shown to be very helpful and brave as he has saved {{adv|Y}} from danger many times. Croaky is also very serious and efficient, wasting no time to jump into action. Croaky is able to utilize the Frubbles he produces in various ways, such as creating a copy of himself to fool an enemy or leaving a trail for his friends to follow. Croaky is also skillful when acting on his own, often taking precautions or battling without the need for his {{pkmn|Trainer}}'s command.

| colspan="3" style="text-align:left" |'''Description:''' '''Frubble''' (Japanese: '''ケロムース''' ''Keromousse'') is a physical characteristic of Froakie and Frogadier. It reaches into the bubbles on its neck, pulling out handfuls of bubbles and throwing them at its opponents much like an actual attack. This is used usually to subdue the opponents and strike them while they are distracted. Croaky can also use the Frubbles to block an opponent's attacks, cushion an ally to save them from falling, make a copybody double of itself andor beothers usedto aslure aan opponent into attacking, and create makeshift piecepieces of clothing. As a Frogadier, Croaky would put pebbles into his Frubbles to add weight behind them. Despite having no visible Frubbles on its body as a Greninja, Croaky retained the ability to use Frubbles after evolving into his final form.
