  • Jolly (+Speed, -Special Attack)
  • Modest (+Special Attack, -Attack)

  • Shy (+Speed, -Attack)

Lucario is most useful when his speed is maxed out, so try not to settle for a nature that lowers his speed if possible. Physical attack is also very viable for Lucario, so keep that in mind when looking for a Riolu or Lucario to settle on. Because Lucario is a well-balanced Pokemon, it is also adept at using Special Attack. Those aiming to make a special move-focused Pokémon might do well with Lucario. Lucario also has mediocre defense, so avoid lowering it more than it already is with your Nature.
