How far Greninja goes is dependent on how long the move is charged, and Greninja can charge it while moving, Greninja can also attack the opponent when he reappears. Since Greninja does not look any different than usual while charging, the only way to see how far you will move is to watch for Greninja's shadow, which moves to your new location.

Shadow Strike is similar to Shadow Sneak, however, when Greninja reappears, it will deliver a damaging backflip, doing severe damage and knockback to anyone who is caught in the wake. It does more damage if you come up behind the opponent.
When using Shadow Dash the distance is predetermined and so is automatic rather than requiring the holding down of the button. Due to this, the damage it does is reduced slightly, but does have a little bit of knockback. If you go through the opponent, you will do 1% more damage than if you appear between you and the opponent.

In Pokemon, Shadow Sneak is a move learned by Greninja (as well as other Pokemon) when it levels up to LV. 23. It has increased priority. In this move, the user disappears then reappears behind their opponent and attacks, just like in Smash Bros.
