Physical Description[edit]

A Lucario using Aura Sphere. By Nirakat86

Lucarios are bipedal, canine-like Pokémon resembling a jackal with fur that is predominantly blue and black, save for it's chest which is a cream color, with blue fur on its thighs that resembles shorts. It possesses a short, round spike on the back of each forepaw, in addition to a third on its chest. It has a medium length tail of the same blue color as well. It stands on its toes rather than on its entire foot. On it's head are two red eyes, two pointed ears and a long snout, and along the back of it's head are four small black appendages that allow it to detect and manipulate aura.

These bipedal jackals-like creatures have been known to, although extremely rarely, possess reversed fur colors, with it's originally cream-colored chest fur being blue and it's usually blue fur colored gold. Rumor has it that one had red fur instead of blue, and was an extremely capable fighter.


Lucarios, and their pups known as Riolu, were discovered in the mountains of Sinnoh. Legend has it a Lucario was sealed away by an aura guardian only to be freed hundreds of years later. It ultimately sacrificed itself to preserve an ancient, mystical tree known as The Tree of Beginning.


Lucario tend to live in packs deep in the mountains, although they will exhibit extreme loyalty to anyone who befriends them. They also possess a strong sense of justice. The four appendages growing from the back of it's head allow it to detect and manipulate auras, and emanates it's own aura to communicate how it feels. Some Lucario are said to be so good that they can sense the aura of creatures up to half a mile away.
