Even though gravitons are hypothetical, I'd say that they would indeed have a frequency, wavelength, and the other things you might associate with a wave of energy. They would be similar to photons, but have a different spin and a different effect on matter.
...just curious, because if it doesn't, not only does it have no mass but it must also have no energy either. In fact, with no mass, or energy, if it does exist, what exactly is existing?
In physics, the Casimir effect and the Casimir-Polder force are physical forces arising from a quantized field. The typical example is of two uncharged metallic plates in a vacuum, placed a few micrometers apart, without any external electromagnetic field. In a classical description, the lack of an external field also means that there is no field between the plates, and no force would be measured between them. When this field is instead studied using quantum mechanics, it is seen that the plates do affect the virtual photons which constitute the field, and generate a net force
