Lucario — The Aura Pokemon

It's a Pokemon Double Day! First we'll take a good look at Lucario. Due to the nature of Pokemon, we will not be tracking their experience; within their setting, they are basically critters and will be statted as such.

Name: Lucario
Agility d8; Smarts d6; Spirit d10; Strength d8; Vigor d10
Pace 6; Parry 7; Charisma 0; Toughness 8

Edges: Arcane Background (Aura), Combat Reflexes, Counterattack, Improved Heightened Senses, Martial Artist, Quick
Skills: Aura d10, Fighting d10, Intimidation d6, Notice d8, Stealth d4
Special Abilities:
  • Powers: Lucario possesses 20 Power Points and bolt, quickness, smite, and stun.
  • Size –1: Lucario stands just below four feet.
  • Steel-Type: Toughness +2.

Lucario is the evolution of Riolu, with the notable moves carrying over being Counter (Counterattack) and Force Palm (stun). Lucario possesses the unique ability to see the auras of living creatures (Improved Heightened Senses). Its most notable moves are Aura Sphere (bolt) and Extreme Speed (quickness). In addition, all instances of Lucario outside of the main games have him augmenting his capabilities with aura (smite).

Lucario also typically possesses the ability Inner Focus, which allows him to avoid flinching from attacks (Combat Reflexes). Regarding Spirit, I did this by looking at how difficult the Pokemon is to catch. With a catch rate of 5.9%, a Spirit of d10 seemed appropriate.

While not part of a normal Lucario's moveset, he does possess Double Team in the Smash Brothers games. This is simply the deflect power and can be added if one deems it necessary.

There you have it: Lucario! Scroll down a titch to see our other Pokemon of the day, Charizard, and leave questions and comments as always!
