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.

 Pokémon Information
 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.
