Lucario is the star of the most recent Pokémon movie and all-around bad-ass. When the wee Riolu's respect for its master overflows and the warm light of the sun shines on its fur, it evolves into this regal Pokémon. While he may be styled after Anubis, the Jackal-like Egyptian god of death, Lucario is a noble and honorable warrior. Its signature move, Aura Sphere, allows Lucario to channel his indomitable fighting spirit into his hands to release a ball of energy, Hadouken-style.
