Why Mr Mime do not block the 3 damages from Greninja's special hability while on?

 

All attacks should be avoided. No?

Mr. Mime blocks damage, and only from attacks, not abilities. Placement of damage counters is not considered as damage by the game, rather it is an effect. Greninja's Giant Water Shuriken is an ability, and places damage counters instead of dealing direct damage. Thus, Mr. Mime can't block it.

 

To block Giant Water Shuriken, you need use Machoke from guardians rising, which blocks damage and placement of damage counters from attacks AND abilities.

Garbodor has the Garbotoxin ability to shut down Greninja's ability, as well as....all abilities, as long as it has a poke tool attached. However it is vulnerable to field blower. Promo Giratina can also shut down Greninja but is quite useless against everything else.

 

Note that they only turn off abilities and don't actually prevent the placement of damage counters, or even prevent any damage at all. If that's what you want, and you want to block both direct damage and damage counter placement, then you have to use Machoke. If you're only afraid of Greninja, then use Giratina promo.
