Lucario (ルカリオ) is the 116th Pokémon in the Sinnoh Pokédex. It is a Fighting/Steel Type, and it is known as the Aura Pokémon.

Lucario can use one of two Abilities: Steadfast, which increases its Speed by one stage each time that it flinches, or Inner Focus, which prevents it from flinching altogether, except when it is trying to use Focus Punch. A third Ability is available to Lucario from the Dream World, the Justified Ability. This Ability increases its Attack by one stage when it gets hit by a Dark-Type attack.

Riolu evolve into Lucario by having a strong bond with their trainer and then Leveling Up during the Daytime.

Lucario is in the Egg Groups Field and Human-Like, and its Egg takes approximately 6,400 Steps to hatch. It takes Lucario 1,059,860 Experience Points to reach Level 100.

[edit] Movies

Lucario is the star Pokémon in Lucario and the Mystery of Mew. Lucario doesn't trust humans as it believes that its master, Sir Aaron, abandoned it long ago. It emerges out of Sir Aaron's staff after mistaking Ash as Sir Aaron due to the aura Ash gives off. Throughout the movie, Lucario learns that not all humans are bad and Sir Aaron was, in fact, trying to protect Lucario from the fate he suffered during a war that happened in the ancient kingdom around Cameron Palace. Lucario then sacrifices itself to save the Tree of Beginning along with the area around it.

A Wild Lucario also appears in the film The Rise of Darkrai, and Maylene's Lucario appears in Zoroark: Master of Illusions.

[edit] Manga

Lucario's Manga Information is unknown as of writing.

[edit] Pokémon Information

[edit] Competitive Battling

Lucario has been in the OverUsed (OU) Tier of Competitive Battling since it was introduced in Generation IV. It's access to boosting moves like Swords Dance and Agility allow it to sweep teams with a moment's notice. It can also utilize every Choice item in the game thanks to its mixed Attacking stats and passable Speed. In Generation V, Lucario became more versatile with the addition of Nasty Plot to its movepool, thus letting it sweep from the special side as well as the physical side. This makes it even harder to stop Lucario since you can easily get fooled by the set initially.
