Background: Lucario is a generation 5 pokemon who is a main character in the movie “Lucario and the Mystery of Mew”. He is a fighting and steel type, making him a powerful foe or ally. He uses meditation to harness energy into a physical form which he can then throw at opponents. He is known for his bravery and loyalty. In generation 6 it is revealed that Lucario will have a new “Mega Evolution” form.

Reasoning: He is better than Mewtwo and Zoroark.

Probability: CONFIRMED!

Changes: His “force palm” attack should instantly shatter a shield, causing the opponent to be dazed. His Final Smash should be changed to reflect his new “mega evolution” form.

Thoughts: While I typically like to see changes to represent new Pokemon generations, I actually really liked Lucario a lot in Brawl. I think Mewtwo’s Mega Evolution “awakened” form looks stupid, like he got fuzed with Freeza from DBZ. Zoroark would be okay except his trademark is transformation, and if you wanted to transform into someone in a battle you’d just choose them to start with! His play style of the more damage he takes, the greater his attack power, is a very interesting and unique addition. Not sure what generation 6 will offer, but I see that as the only feasible option to replace him.
