I honestly want to know with this poll hijacking, what's with all of the hate for Lucario? I get it's used in everything, Smash, the Anime, the games.
And that movie made it look edgy, but other than that, why hate Lucario?
ITT: Why you hate/like Lucario
>why hate Lucario when its shoved into every piece of medium forcing it down our throat
hurr durr i dont know
The Mystery of Mew movie?
Negro, that movie brought me to manly tears.
I've liked Lucario since Gen 4. Getting to see more of it has only been a blessing.
>tfw it was on your list of top 6 favorites for a long time and despite having dropped from that list is still your bro
I liked Lucario when it came out on gen IV. I don't understand why /vp/ doesn't like edgy things.
It's cool, it's fucking strong, its Mega made it even more awesome (kinda like Giratina has an apprentice)
My all time top favourite pokemon. It's ridiculously unpredictable. (It has 4 main set, 8 subset, and at least one will fuck you sideways)
>Lucario my favorite pokemon
>i like Blaziken,Lopunny Zoroark,Delphox
>not a furry
>i dont find any of those attractive
Im with you guys there
Shoved into our throats with any medium possible
Most of it's fanbase are annoying furtists
Anime/movie portrays it as edgy as fuck
Ridiculous typing/movepool (i mean why the fuck is it a steel type, and how the fuck does it get to learn nasty plot, dragon pulse, blaze kick or dark pulse)
I personally really like Lucario myself - it's a cool design, interesting typing and actually pretty good in-game too!
I definitely sympathise with people who are sick of seeing it promoted in everything, but that doesn't make me like it any less.
Still, it's a shame Zoroark didn't become the 'new' Lucario, and that there wasn't really a contender for the position in Gen VI (other than Hawlucha maybe?). Variety is the spice of life!
I posted this in the last thread
Honestly, its just fucking stupid. I know I cant speak for everyone but everything about it erks me. It has a horrible design, the constant pandering is annoying, the anime made it super fucking edgy. No clue how people like this thing. Its not even because its popular. I like other popular mons.
I like Lucario, but I do agree that it's given way too much attention.
I was pretty mad when I made the effort to catch a Riolu in X, only to be given a Lucario with a megastone and had all-around better stats and nature. Why?
I'm fine with Lucario ingame. It's a nice mixed Pokemon with a lot of strategies to use. I don't mind the fanbase. It's OK. Every Pokemon has a weird-ass fanbase.
What I don't like is how GookFreak treats it like Jesus mixed with fucking Christmas and sushi or whatever the fuck they do over there. Every fucking year they throw it some kind of worship en masse like it was their own fucking savior. Movies, episodes, anime, representations in the fucking games of a stupidly main characterish nature. Unlike Lightning, it's been shoved down our throats far longer, but the premise is still there. And they don't realize that maybe, 'hey, maybe we should keep that to the anime only guys'. But no, there it is. Intruding on our lives like a fucking plague everywhere we fucking go or look. In Kerfluffle, in X/Y, in the TV Skits, in everything. And that's why I don't fucking like it.
I am glad that Jigglypuff got a different render and pose in the Smash 4 leak instead of the same fucking shit since Smash 64.
I don't hate Lucario because it's not on the tier of "Used in everything" like this fat pseudodragon is
>used to be fed up with Lucario
>decides to use one for the first time in Y
>still not a favorite but don't think it's so bad now
I like Lucario, probably a lot more than I do some other Pokemon; I just think Gamefreak needs to stop pushing it and let some other Pokemon have some spotlight. At the very least, change shit up every Generation.
I liked it initially but seeing it everywhere and it having a ridiculous/unjustified typing and receive all the good shit every gen while the rest are getting shafted makes me hate it. Especially since it is forced to us as the premier fighting type when clearly, other pokemon deserve that title more.
you know that marginally likable pop song that gets played in the radio 5x an hour? there's your answer
>displaces every other mon where it appears
>always given to you as a pre-evo or as it is
>forces you to mega evolve
>shoehorned into almost every fighting type specialist and replaces previous signature mons (i.e., bruno)
>given a good typing because fuck if i know aside from blatant favoritism
>given every good move while other fighting types with better concepts and design get squat
This is about how I feel. Lucario isn't a bad Pokémon, and i don't dislike it, i even bothered to breed and train one, but I feel like it's very unnecessary for it to be shoved in our faces all the time.
To those who say "GameFreak does it because it's popular and it sells!" remember that it's a self-fulfilling prophecy, it sells because that's what they push, they could hype any other Pokémon like that.
That said, I usually don't care, because I rarely pay attention to Pokémon outside the main games and Smash. I think Lucario is neat, and I have since seeing him on Iron Island in Diamond.
That's because, honestly, Zoroark got pushed during a time that being black-and-red with spikes was on the out. Lucario was unique looking, Charizard was Charizard, and Greninja was something new. Zoroark legitimately looked like an OC hedgehog.
>That's because, honestly, Zoroark got pushed during a time that being black-and-red with spikes was on the out. Lucario was unique looking, Charizard was Charizard, and Greninja was something new. Zoroark legitimately looked like an OC hedgehog.
Still proves that there has to be something special before a push works but I get what you're saying. It was created in the right place at the right time, it's a classic design, it's fresh etc. Whatever reason it may be, it has to have "it" before the push works.
To use another example, it's like in professional wrestling where no matter how much exposure some wrestlers get, they never manage to become as popular as the big stars.
I only hang out on /vp/ for Pokemon and on /vp/ there is no Lucario fanbase out in the open for me to hate so fanbase isn't an issue for me when it comes to Lucario.
I hate it because it gets forced down our throats everywhere from anime, Smash, the games and other smaller details like Lucario rank in PMD, giant Lucario statue and first mega ever. And after all this promoting and pushing, for a fairly meager or unnoticeable fanbase in the overall Pokemon fandom compared to the other guys like Pikachu, Eevees and Charizard. When you think "popular Pokemon", how often do you think Lucario? It's only somewhat popular for all the pushing it gets and if it weren't for that it'd be on the lower end of popularity like Absol, Zoroark or Zangoose.
How in the fuck is Hawlucha being pushed as the new Lucario? I think you meant Greninja
Cobalion is cooler.
And they have the same colors.
I enjoy lucario because it has an enjoyable design and learns a lot of moves I like that I did not expect. I do not care for it being forced at all and while I can agree with that the same can be said for almost anything generation 1.
It ain't hard to be better than Lucario.
I don't like it's design. It looks like it's wearing a bandana and shorts, and I think that looks stupid. Also, the placement of those spikes makes no sense and just bugs me.
Otherwise its a fine pokemon, but I still probably wouldn't use it - it's a glass cannon, and I prefer to use bulky or stall-y 'mons.
>using reaction images of characters you don't like
Mako a shit KLK a shit in general but Mako's in her own class of shit
/vp/'s just full of obnoxious hipster trash that hates popular shit.
Some people need not any other reason to hate something other than that other people like it.
they are often people devoid fom love and ruled by jealousy. pity them op, and show them you care.
>devoid fom love
somebody hates my favorite, s/he probably doesn't like anything ELSE
don't like !=hates
if someone hates something just because it's popular, that it WILL like things- it will like only things which are unpopular.
you know, like hipsters. but it will pretend to hate them because it also hates hipsters. pathetic isn't it?
ITT: People defending a telepathic, talking DBZ metal anthro who gets edgier when it megaevolves, is proud of its power, had no real weaknesses in game, learns moves it has no right to know apart from 'speshul' and is one of the most prominent pokemon used in the furry/yiff community, who endlessly pump out diaper, vore and scat renditions without shame.
Lucario is essentially the pokemon version of Shadow the Hedgehog, and the fact that the only defense you see in return is >h-hispters... should speak magnitudes.
>Ctrl f "pants"
>no results found
Really so no one mentioned those stupid mc hammer pants he wears.
Mewtwo is an endgame legendary, you can forgive Arceus/Mewtwo/Lugia etc. for being mary sues when their whole point is to be OP one-offs. I'm not a mewtwo fan, but it isn't as bad.
Don't forget even their lore is written like a child wrote it.
>Super special Aura powers
>Can read minds through aura use
>Especially powerful pokemon that bonds with only one trainer or is otherwise a loner too strong to fight lowly other pokemon.
> you can forgive Arceus/Mewtwo/Lugia etc. because they are special
lucario should learn its place because it isn't really special, it's just one of hundreds? I don't like this kind of thought. every pokemon is special in it's own way.
Typical mary sue fare. Note how similar it is to Shadow though:
>Super special Chaos powers
>Can stop time through chaos use
>Especially powerful hedgehog that bonds with only one person (Maria) or is otherwise a loner too strong to fight lowly humans/his friends.
>it is own way
>why aren't regular pokemon as special as legendaries?
>I don't like these people's opinion on this one character from a gaming franchise, therefore they're wrong and they're losers
>implying any lucario threads outside of deviantart and furaffinity can ever be peaceful
>I don't get why people bash Lucario
>Because it's my favourite poke I don't see anything wrong with it
Nothing is wrong with the pokemon in a vacuum. People who shit on it just because it's popular/shoved down our throats are autistic faggots whose opinions are at the mercy of others' opinions.
But even though I like Lucario in of itself, I still voted Toxicroak because I like it more, and I would have voted for Tox anyway just because Luke doesn't need to be in the spotlight
That's not a non sequitur you faggot. He wasn't saying the reason nobody else should bash it is because he likes it. He was saying that because he doesn't find anything wrong with it (synonymous with liking it), he doesn't know why others do.
Also anybody who brings up names of "logical fallacies" is probably experiencing babby's first discourse
The only thing that really bothers me about Auradog is that he's part steel.
I don't really see it, I guess. M-Luke looks pretty nice.
I'm more annoyed with Cynthia being jammed into things, honestly.
Outside of the furry fanbase and being Game Freak's Lightning, another reason I hate Lucario is that it's a shit design. Unnecessary spikes and lines. Dumb fur-shorts. It looks like it was designed by an 8-year old.
>it needs them
Boy it sure needed that blaze kick, dragon pulse, nasty plot, dark pulse, extreme speed, vacuum wave, shadow ball, stone age and adabtability mega, didn't it? I mean there aren't any pokemon that need any of those
Also you're right, if it's UU it's utterly worthless
I admit giving it Blaze kick is fucking stupid (come on, it's a steel type) and I don't get Dragon Pulse either (Anubis being able to blast things from its mouth, maybe?)
Just like how Salamence can learn Hydro Pump.
I meant its stats. 90 speed just doesn't cut it with those pitiful defences. That's why they give it mega evolution (parental bond Terrakion + Keldeo's SPA + Starmie's Speed)
Because /vp/ is upset that Gamefreak will focus on Pokemon that's proven to give them profit like Charizard or Lucario, instead of their "bros" like Druddigon or Ledian so they take their anger out on said popular Pokemon. Also, 4chan in general has a strong contrarian attitude. The awful fanbase probably doesn't help either, like half of >>20766119 critiques are just "it has a terrible fanbase."
I'm neutral towards Lucario. I don't care for the design but it's not offensively bad enough for me to dislike. Sure it has an awful fanbase and a Mary Sue-ish lore but fanbases are a dumb reason to hate a Pokemon and the franchise has always been very Mary Sue-ish so what does it matter? It's just...there to me. Mega-Lucario is pretty fucking ugly though.
Zoroark was hard to get in-game, competitively shit, and didn't have a Smash game to promote it. Those are all big things so I don't think you can really say "see? lucario was special!" since Lucario ultimately got more initial push. Charizard stayed in the hearts of nostalgiafags since it was Red's mascot and one of Ash's strongest Pokemon.
It's on the cover, yo. It was used to market the game.
Goddammit why does the end of this movie make me so sad?
>want to talk shit about its design because I dislike it too
>look at it again
>actually pretty tasteful for Gen IV
>start to like it
I'm still going to be opposed to it because of Game Freak forcing it everywhere—in every game, in every trailer, in every stream, in every media.
It's basically a second mascot of Pokemon now. People don't like it because it's Pikachu Part 2: Fighting/Steel Boogaloo. Personally, I was okay with it design wise since Gen IV, but I don't like M-Luke. People call it edgy but it'll never be as edgy as Mewtwo (Pokedex entrees always saying it's the most savage hearted among pokemon, acts like a human hating shitter whenever it appears in the anime, MUH AMBER, it's basically Pokemon's Shadow the Hedgehog). And it didn't get 2 fucking megas like Charizard or Mewtwo either. So it ain't as bad as the pandering of those two but it's still bad.
>I hate the boogeyman /vp/ made up
You do realize the only way you're going to find furry porn of lucario is by looming for it. This is literally something that will never affect you in the real world, yet faggots like you have to accept the /vp/ hivemind and have no original thought.
As of X and Y, Gyarados is used by three of the nine Pokémon League Champions, being used by Blue, Lance, and Wallace, making it the most popular Pokémon among Pokémon League Champions thus far (although Blue does not always have a Gyarados, depending on the player's starter Pokémon). However, Blue is the only one to use it in the Pokémon World Tournament.
Gyarados is also a popular Pokémon among Gym Leaders, being used by Blue, Clair, and Crasher Wake.
Gyarados has also been used twice by two Villainous Team Leaders. The first instance was Cyrus and the second instance was Lysandre.
The metal spikes and the weird shorts/extremely wide hips, the dumb ponytail things...
I just don't like Lucario's design. And reasons to hate it in-game? Its a Friendship evolution with a shitty typing. Its basically a pure-steel type that doesnt resist Psychic or Flying and has shit bulk and isnt exceptionally fast to make up for it.
I dont hate thigns for being everywhere, I hate them for being shit.
Mega Lucario on the other hand, has one of the best mega designs (behind Amphy and Blaziken, just a bit above Chainsaw Hands aka Mega Bullet Punch aka Scizor-M) and a blistering 112 speed stat, so I actually like it. Plus being a fighting type that isn't scared of Sylveon is a major plus so I have less reason to dislike it.
Truth be told though, I just love Toxicroak now that weather wars are gone just like I'd love Gliscor if it wasnt for Toxic Heal bullshit. Not because hurrr smogon scorp, but because fighting them genuinely pisses me off. And croagunk a qt, Riolu is just as poorly designed as Lucario. Unsurprisingly, I love poison-types and even think Grimer, Muk, Koffing, and Garbodor are adorable.
Lucario's true strength comes from being able to boost, as its comparitively weak for a mega (145 isn't even base mewtwo's Sp. Attack, let alone Ampharos' 165 or M-Heracross' sickening 185 Attack).
Coupled with the right moveset and near-perfect STAB Coverage partially thanks to Adaptability (Flash Cannon hits ghosts as hard as Dark Pulse/Crunch does, Bullet Punch/Vacuum wave hits as hard as ExtremeSpeed but provide coverage, at the expense of not outprioritizing other priorities)
Switch Lucario in on things that are too weak and slow, or lack the ability to damage Lucario to force a catch-22; If they stay in, you get to boost for free and they die, losing a valuable 'mon. If they switch, you get a free boost and the counter is disadvantaged, possibly killing you or at the worst, forcing you out. But you can always come back in against the same thing you came in on, boost, and murder it and the whole team.
NEVER Lead with Lucario. It has no defenses to speak of and doesn't resist the bravest bird's main attack, and is annihilated by its other STAB
Steel/Fighting isn't a very good typing. It has none of Fighting's weaknesses, but that just means it has fewer resists than a base steel does.
You're losing a Psychic, Fairy and Flying resist (the latter of which are far more important) and gaining ... what? You dont resist Fighting, so its still SE. You dont gain coverage against Ice or Rock (but you do against Fairy), you dont even quad-resist Dark anymore. The fighting type does nothing defensively for Lucario and hurts it tremendously, taking neutral damage from twice as many types and only getting a double resistance to U-Turn and Stealth Rock to make up for it. And with such pathetic defenses, you need every resistance you can get to stay alive.
Fortunately, "staying alive" is nothing Lucario is afraid due to its phenomenal speed as a Mega and the fact that next to nothing can survive a hit after it boosts
Its a far better design. Both Blaziken and Lucario had shit designs before, and were graced with the best looking megas ever.
Also how is Mega Lucario edgy? The rabid Mega in the animu doesn't count
>the best defensive typing crossed with the best offensive typing is bad
>confirmed for not reading
Fighting does nothing defensively for Steel and weakens it exceptionally. So much so that lots of other types benefit Fighting defensively much more. Like Flying, which is weak to one of Fighting's resists and resists the other, or Psychic or bug which lose a weakness (to bug and Rock respectively; Psychic/Fighting pre-gen 6 also lost a dark weakness) and thus complement each other better.
Fighting/Steel is just a shitty steel type defensively, and Steel doesn't help offensively pre-gen 6. Gen6 rebalanced the chart to make the combination much, much better.
One of the best pokemon ever, and gen 6 made it a thousand times even better. Its sprite made no sense in gen 5.... How was it levitating? Why was it standing on those flipper things?
I was saying the Gen 5 Sprite does not show it levitating and is very clearly grounded. Plus it looks bad. Why is an eel standing up like that? Its the same reason why Purrloin has such a shitty design in gen 6
Regular Lucario looks better than Mega Lucario. The double headband thing Mega Lucario has is just completely retarded. Also, I'm guessing the "edge" he's talking about is how the only huge aesthetic change besides the goofy headband and the even shittier colorscheme is that it gets spikier. Also those spikes through the hands, lawl.
What gets me about your post is that you just claimed that Lucario and Blaziken got the best looking megas and that is just downright hilarious to me. They barely change at all and get ribbons, whoopie.
I think the best looking megas are the ones that really improve on the base design, things like Houndoom, Banette, maybe Gengar and Pinsir.
The worst ones are the ones that barely change at all aside from like a new accessory or spikes (Blaziken, Medicham, Lucario, Tyranitar, etc) or the ones that get a whole lot dumber like Heracross (Hand wings? Nutcracker mouth? Second horn is a Pinocchio nose? What the fuck?), Manetric (Pokemon's Lightning), Charizard X (flame mustache?), Ludvig Von Ampharos (I love this fucker's design but not everybody is going to find it as funny as me), gosh there's just too many to list, most of the megas are dumb.
Some of them are an improvement on their base form but still aren't much to look at, like Charizard Y (nice crest, the extra wings are a big dumb though barely noticeable), Kangaskhan (mega babby), Aggron (so you got bigger, whoopie), Absol (original form was shit, adding wings and a stronger yin/yang horn motif is not much better), you get the drill.
I think I've loaded this post down with too many rambling opinions anyway. Misused a lot of parenthesis. If you disagree with some of the ratings I've given Megas, well, it's your prerogative. But Mega Lucario is pretty far from the best design if you ask me.
I don't think anyone is using Lucario under the delusion of surviving more than 2 hits. Lucario is an offensive pokemon. What you gain from adding Fighting is STAB on Fighting, which was better before this gen due to no Fairy. But that's the kicker, Lucario gets steel STAB too and can therefor take down most of the fairies. So he's still a pretty good glass cannon and has a pretty great movepool and enough of each attack stat to be very versatile in utilizing it.
Magnemite doesn't Levitate as a means of locomotion or survival. It levitates as a passive result of its magnetism, which isn't focused well enough to be maintained if the ground is shaken up. Because its body is composed of U-Magnets, it's drawn to any iron in rocks or in building walls/floors, which are every bit as effected by an earthquake as anything else standing on the ground. In fact, its significantly MORE effected because its part of the ground itself; i.e., the whole reason Steel is weak to Ground in the first place - Steel buildings are built into the ground and are rigid.
Aggron actually shrinks in its mega, since its not standing upright.
As for the spikes in its hands... Are you saying they weren't already there? The spikes are meshed better into its design rather than just stuck on like it got crucified and impaled. It looks like a trained fighter. And Blaziken had a lot of design changes besides the ribbons. The head crest becomes more pronounced, the color changes from "Hurrr its fire-type" to an actual artistic mesh of blacks and dark reds (before you call this edgy, learn some color theory. Or look at a generation 5 cartridge in the light and realize theyre both black and red)
They didn't have room to make Eelektross' sprite float properly and still show off the detail. I challenge you or any sprite artist to get Eelektross' entire body in clear, accurate detail while floating properly. And not facing the wrong way. Barboach and Tynamo managed it, but they're extremely tiny. They have a lot of ... for lack of a better term, wiggle room. Eelektross barely fits in the window it's given
Again, Flabébé does not float naturally. It's just flying on a flower, which means if theres no wind... its still touching the ground. I would argue its only floating because its more fairy-like or because gameFreak didnt like how the model looked grounded. Honestly, Even I think it would look pretty stupid and floette is literally my second favorite pokemon in the game.
Basically, pokemon like Koffing are levitating because they're gas, which is part of the air. Its what they do as a direct natural process, part of their existence. Eelektross levitates as a means of hunting prey, because its naturally an aquatic animal. It has legs, but they're poorly suited for land-travel, so it floats using precise electric currents instead.
Things that appear to be levitating and do not have Levitate are either not conciously doing so, or are doing something else instead. Again, magnemite is a key example as its body is more built for attracting metal (and getting attracted to it) than it is for levitation, despite possessing the ability to repulse itself to stay afloat
Your problem, sir, is that you keep thinking of Lucario as a defensive steel type that got ruined by adding fighting when that is the inverse of what is happening. Lucario is an offensive fighting type that got marginally improved by adding steel to it.
What does Fighting do to Steel? Well make it worse by your accounts. What does Steel do for Fighting? I'll tell you what, it neutralizes every one of Fighting's old weaknesses (Flying, and Psychic) and also neutralizes its new weakness (Fairy). Then it adds all the other steel resistances (Ice, Dragon, Grass, Steel, and Normal) as well as compounding the shared resistances (Bug, Rock) to the point where you can possibly switch in on them even as a pokemon with mediocre defensive and HP stats. All this just for having its only weaknesses be the default Steel weaknesses of Fighting, Ground, and Fire.
So yeah, you're making a hissy fit over Fighting ruining Steel when in reality Lucario's situation is Steel saving Fighting. Suddenly you have a powerhouse with STAB Fighting who is able to threaten every pokemon designed to obliterate Fighting sweepers, due to any moves included to get coverage versus Fighting are now neutral instead of x2. So all you have to worry about is Steel weaknesses and excessive setup. This is huge for an offensive pokemon like Lucario who can now eliminate threats that fighting does well against which also learn coverage moves that are normally super effective against Fighting.
Mega Lucario gives it needed stat buffs and an amazing Ability, as well as being in Gen VI where Steel is also useful offensively as a killer of a good chunk of the possible fairy types.
tl;dr you've got your perspective backwards viewing Fighting as ruining a defensive Steel when in reality Steel is saving an offensive Fighting.
>As for the spikes in its hands... Are you saying they weren't already there?
Nah I'm saying it got EXTRA spikes in its hands, as well as its feet. Also, the coloration is designed to make them evoke thoughts of bloody fists/feet, which is just gaudy really. I also like how you went from "crucified" in regular form to "trained fighter" in Mega Form despite no trained fighter in their right mind ever desiring spikes jutting out the top of his hands. I can definitely see where the "edgy" label comes from.
Another thing about the Lucario one is how besides getting an extra pair of headband looking dongles, their coloration doesn't match the other ones and it clashes.
As for Blaziken, the original crest being swept back looked fine, now it's split in two as retarded head fins. My head is a bird! Also, the smaller crests sweeping outward have now become a single crest on its nose/beak jutting up, it kinda draws attention to the wrong places and looks pretty dumb comparitively. Also, I like how you claim that the color changed from "Hurrr it's fire-type" when the ribbons it gains are ON FUCKING FIRE. They didn't get rid of the orange, they made it MORE PRONOUNCED and waving around every which way as if advertizing, SCREAMING, "HURR THIS IS A FIRE TYPE!" So I basically disagree with everything you just said. Except that people misappropriate the term "edgy" a lot.
I like Lucario as a mon. I raised a Riolu in B2W2 and it was a lot of fun to use. Good typing, good movepool, good stats all around. The design isn't anywhere near as bad as people make out.
My issue is with Nintendo and the furries. Nintendo for sticking it in everywhere they can. Pikachu I get, Charizard I get. Greninja, it isn't that bad yet. But Lucario is fucking everywhere, and I don't get it. I hope the poll shows them that people want other mons to get the spotlight. And the furries for ruining a good thing like only they can.
Thinking back, Lucario was even one of those mons released before the games came out, like Togepi or Munchlax. I remember in the original Rescue Team you could get it, Bonsly, Mime Jr, and Weavile as trophies or some shit. Bonsly & Mime Jr. would have made cute as fuck mascots.

Actually, I had to use Linux because my Windows shat itself on me and wouldn't work at all, and my friend (who's actually in IT as a professional) couldn't help me aside from "use the USB stick, Luke!"
Its lore is a watered-down Mewtwo.
Hey, that reminds me: Brawl.

Why all the spikes

If it weren't the unofficial mascot of Pokemon and were treated as a normal Pokemon I'd like it a little more.
I used to be on the hipster train about Lucario until I gave them an honest go with this generation.
Now I just think it's.. eh.. a pretty cool guy who doesn't afraid of anything.
I enjoyed him more than my Medicham leveling up, but I'll probably replace him now that my egged Mega-Medi is coming together.

what the hell is that, I started reading/watching GoT after I heard it was good
what's wrong with that
I read shit only /lit/ has fucking heard about but you don't hear me bragging about it
a. nothing is wrong from taking to something after recomendition. only hipsters think this is bad.
GoT sucks, it's literly baby first fantasy soap operaand WoT is better. the black cauldron is better. the death gate cycle is better. dragon lance is better. heck, even drizzt is better.
I quit playing during generation 2, didn't touch pokemon until gen 6, when I saw the covers of R/S I thought they looked more like plastic children's toys rather than pokemon, then Brawl came out and I saw Lucario and it looked like the most stupid furfag original character do not steal shit I had ever seen in a game and thought to myself "is this what Pokemon has become now? another fucking Soniclike franchise?"
tl;dr Lucario has a very cringe inducing design, looking both edgy and stupid looking.
Kyogre and Groudon are awesome, but I won't be using Lucario any time soon.
Not him, but I remember saving this from a thread a while back.
Anubis isn't what Lucario is based off of. That's just /vp/ regurgitating the same information unto itself until everybody believes it to be fact (like how everyone thinks Hydreigon is based off of King Ghidorah.)
Outside of the ears, and I guess, maybe, some super loose Aura connection, it's really got nothing to do with Anubis. It's also not a Jackle.. if anything, it's a Wolf or Dog.
In reality, it's an attempt at an original creation with light inspiration drawn from Hachiko. Overall, it's a rough design outline of Lone Wolf/Hachiko/Oracle inspirations.
If the blue was gold or sandy, that could make a great pokemon on its own, maybe a special-based Fighting type (maybe part Ghost too, since Anubis = afterlife). And it would be cool to have an actual Anubis pokemon.
>despite zoroark flopping, lucario is so popular that GF decides to make lucario-clones every gen onwards
