Not really much to say about this one. I'm pretty sure the ability scores are going to draw some attention, at least. I did this because Lucarios are strong and quick, but also intelligent. Instead of just straight up giving it a +1 to strength, dexterity and intelligence/wisdom, I figured I'd let the player mix and match as they chose to make things interesting.

The mention of a Lucario with red fur is a reference to it's alternate colors in Pokken tournament. Aura Sphere is pretty much Lucario's signature move, so I couldn't help but try to add something like it to the race. I gave it a 1.5 due to it technically being a cantrip, but it can only be used once per short rest. Because of that one tiny caveat, I'm not sure if it should be reduced to a 1, but I'll leave it at 1.5 for now.

Last is Aura Sight. Not sure if this should have a range or not (it probably should), but I'm not sure what would be a good range. Either way, it gets a 1 for now. --MetalShadowOverlord (talk) 17:58, 5 May 2018 (MDT)

Edit: Looks like Aura Sight is getting a 0.5 with a range of 60 ft. Also Aura Sphere gets a 1 since it's basically a Dragonborn's breath attack but with force damage. Thanks to ConcealedLight for the help with these.

Lucario height[edit]

Lucario height, according to the games, is 3' 11" to 4' 3". --PJammaz (talk) 05:45, 12 March 2020 (MDT)

Yeah, not sure why people keep messing with the height. --MetalShadowOverlord (talk) 07:10, 12 March 2020 (MDT)
I will fix it again. Also I might play around with the height and weight tables. What do you think is the shortest and tallest a Lucario would be? --PJammaz (talk) 10:41, 12 March 2020 (MDT)
I'm just ball-parking it here, but given how the average height is 3'7 and taking into consideration what you said in the OP, I'd say the smallest might be 3'2 and the tallest being 4'5. How does that sound?
Sounds good. I'll change it. --PJammaz (talk) 04:22, 14 March 2020 (MDT)
