More Details From Lucario at Pokken Arena

Lucario is a Fighting/Steel-type classified as an Aura Pokémon. This Pokemon evolves from Riolu and has the potential to Mega Evolve into Mega Lucario. Lucario was one of the first fighters confirmed to be in the game along with Machamp and was introduced to Pokkén Tournament upon it's initial release in Japan on arcade.

In Pokkén Tournament Edit

Lucario is one of the most balanced characters in the game. It has the third highest HP count in the game (600, the same as Blaziken and Charizard) and has a decent ranged and melee game. It attacks opponents with Aura Sphere and assaults enemies with Bone Rush when at close-quarters. It also has the ability to pierce counters and break guards. It also borrows a lot of moves from Lars Alexandersson, one of the main characters of the Tekken franchise.

Trivia Edit

  • The way Lucario uses Bone Rush in Pokken Tournament appears to be directly based on how it has been depicting using the move in both the Pokemon Diamond and Pearl and Pokemon XY&Z series of the anime. Similarly, the appearance of Lucario's Force Palm also appears to based on how it was depicted being used by Maylene's Lucario in the Diamond and Pearl series.
  • This is the first depiction of Mega Lucario in which the black lines running across its body feature glowing blue borders. This is somewhat consistent with its Pokedex description, however, which indicates that the black lines mark where the concentration of aura flowing through Mega Lucario's body is the strongest.
