Movesets Grades

* Legacy Moveset

X = Sub-optimal moveset with zero viability

Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Counter is generally better than Bullet Punch.

  • Close Combat and Flash Cannon are underwhelming moves that make Lucario an underwhelming Fighting or Steel attacker.

  • Shadow Ball is Lucario’s optimal charged move in neutral scenarios.

Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Counter offers more damage and wider coverage.

  • Shadow Ball is more likely to be fired before Lucario faints.

  • Close Combat and Flash Cannon, on the other hand, are harder to dodge.

Rating Explanation

Lucario is Sinnoh’s mascot and a huge fan favorite, but despite its promising Attack stat, its performance in GO leaves a lot to be desired. Due to a lackluster movepool, it's only a C-tier Fighting-type and comparable to Magneton (no, not Magnezone) as a Steel attacker.

Lucario’s current situation is similar to the one that Metagross found itself in at Gen 3’s release; now it can only hope to follow its path, and get a powerful exclusive move at some point in the future. Our Riolu will patiently wait in the meanwhile.
