Be prepared before facing this fighting doggo.
If you’re wondering what Lucario’s weakness is in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, here’s what you need to know.
Lucario is one of the more popular Pokemon in the series, thanks primarily to how cool it looks. I mean, it’s a fighting doggo. What’s not to love?
Lucario’s Weakness in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl
Anyway, Lucario is a Steel-Fighting hybrid type, which means that it’s weak to Fire and Ground moves, as well as Fighting to a slightly lesser extend. If you picked Chimchar as your starter in the game, you should have an easier time going up against Lucario. There aren’t a whole ton of Fire-type Pokemon available in the early hours of Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, so Chimchar would definitely be a good pick that takes you far.
Fire-types are also strong against Steel-types, further increasing Chimchar’s value when you’re up against Lucario.
Ground-type Pokemon like Sandslash and Dugtrio will also do well against Lucario, along with secondary Ground-type creatures like Onix and Geodude. When going up against this Pokemon, you should have a pretty easy time if you have Chimchar, and any combination of the other mons we’ve mentioned here.
What Lucario Is Strong Against
Of course, every Pokemon has its strengths as well. In the case of Lucario, it’s effective against Ice, Rock, and Fairy types. Lucario was already pretty deadly on its own, but up against these types, things could get pretty disastrous.
As long as you’re not using any Ice, Rock, or Fairy types against Lucario, you should be pretty safe regardless of what Pokemon you decide to go with.
