Not bad... I suggest breeding it as soon as it evolves so you can get a Modest one. Then use this moveset:

Aura Sphere
Dragon Pulse
Dark Pulse
Psychic

Oh yeah, wrong board! Go to Strategies and Movesets for further rates and team critisicm, ok?

I have a question.. why modest? Aren't aura sphere and dark pulse effective by their attack?

It'll give it more Special Attack in exchange for unneeded Attack.

Yea just figured that out..thought some of those were based on attack. Thanks Anyways.

I don't think it can learn psychic considering it's fighting type. You should teach it Shadow ball, which is a move that, in theory, alot of people have taught theirs.

it does. in the battle tower, i battled a lvl 50 lucario that used nothing but force palm and psychic.

After thinking about this, I came up with this set to pretty much cover Lucario's weaknesses.

Lucario
Modest Nature
-Water Pulse
-Psychic
-Dark Pulse
-Aura Sphere

this is the best moveset for a lucario I've ever seen. Honestly.

but perhaps it should hold the focus band so it doesn't faintfrom an attack that is meant to kill it :/

but that's my opinion.

Also, you could ditch Dark Pulse for Shadow Ball(Now a Special Attack) to kill off Gallade or Medicham. =/

edit: ok, which one should i do?both have same att and acc. but dark pulse flinches and shadow ball lowers sp def. which one?
edit edit: actualy, ill just use shadow claw. although its 10 dmg weaker, it has high crit hit ratio.

Um, Shadow Claw is a Physical Attack. Lucario's SP ATK>ATK.

I'd go with Shadow Ball. =/

Water Pulse is not good. I considered that, too, but after some calculations I found out that STAB'd Aura Sphere does the same damage as Super Effective Water Pulse. I recommend replacing Water Pulse with a utility move, like Me First or Calm Mind. Calm Mind Lucario can be deadly.

Now if he could Surf, he'd be incredible. But Water Pulse is a bit risky. Confusion chances are low and Power is only 60. I closely considered it when making my Lucario, but I decded to go with Aura Sphere, Dragon Pulse, Dark Pulse, Psychic. Dragons are more threatening overall than Fire, and since most Dragons have EQ, they'll sweep Lucario like a spot of dust. Plus, Dragons are stronger overall and usually have incredible Attack. For Lucario, Dragon Pulse > Water Pulse.

i like that set. just one thing: i think there should be a physical move. because if lucario fights a mirror coat pokemon, its as good as dead. this would be my moveset to decide on:
-aura sphere
-dragon pulse
-shadow claw
-psychic
or
-aura sphere
-dragon pulse
-dark pulse
-shadow claw
you people can help me decide. cause i dont want all non physical attacks.
