How to Play Lucario

Jump to Section

Control the Lane in the Early Game

Utilize Lucario's initial moveset to control and dominate the lane in the early game. Use them to score, secure wild Pokemon, secure knockouts, and escape bad situations.

Secure Wild Pokemon with Meteor Mash

Use Meteor Mash to shove wild Pokemon towards your side or allies, securing them for your team.

Meteor Mash: Lucario Move Effect and Cooldown

Secure Knockouts using Quick Attack

Use Quick Attack's long range and high damage to secure knockouts in the early game.

Take Advantage of Steadfast Activations

Lucario's passive ability, Steadfast gives Lucario emergency shields when its HP reaches a certain threshold. This adds to Lucario's overall durability as it is hard to take down during the early game. Combining this effect with Focus Band triggers contributes to Lucario's already high survivability.

Utilize Move Resets

You can reset the cooldowns of Extreme Speed and Power-Up Punch by fulfilling certain conditions.

Hit Marked Enemies with Extreme Speed

Each time you hit a marked enemy with Extreme Speed, it resets the move's cooldown. This tactic is effective during teamfights where your enemies are grouped closely together, allowing you to reset Extreme Speed multiple times.

It's also a great way to quickly farm wild Pokemon, particularly the Swablu and Altaria camps.

Extreme Speed: Lucario Move Effect and Cooldown

Hit Enemies with Close Combat or Aura Cannon

You can reduce Power-Up Punch's cooldown whenever you hit enemies with Close Combat or Bone Rush, and Aura Cannon. Just be sure to get in as many hits as you can when you use them.

Fire Lucario's Unite Move Into a Crowd

Before initiating a battle, it's best to throw Lucario's Unite Move in a crowd as channeling it in the middle of a team fight can leave you exposed. You can aim it from afar or while hiding in the grass and increase the chances of it hitting. Upon using this move, your next Power-Up Punch will deal more damage or all enemies hit will have the Extreme Speed mark applied to them, so use that to your advantage.
