Why is Lucario so overused?

0 votes

I mean, he has good stats and all, but there are better.
Isn't he kind of overrated?

Lucario is awesome but Leafeon and Vaporeon (and all eeveelutions) have the same BST as him!!! Yet Lucario is considered WAAAAY stronger!
Although in Pokemon Black I had a Lucario which was a HUGE help.
It's not all in the BST. Roles, move sets, and typing are also factors. Plus it has a Mega Evolution now.
I know, I know. But still, Eeveelutions are pretty under rated at times :c
At least from what I've seen imo.

It is a very solid Pokemon

I'll run through it's pros and cons just so you can see why it is good.

PROS

  • It can be either a psychical or special attacker or mixed.
  • It has a lot of resistances.
  • It has a mega.
  • It has a superb movepool. (Aura Sphere, Close Combat, Extreme Speed, Dragon Pulse, Earthquake, Bullet Punch, Dark Pulse, Stone Edge etc.)
  • It has enough speed to be a good sweeper.
  • It has a decent ability before mega evolving and a great one after. (Adaptability after it MEvolves, Justified before it does)
  • It has priority moves (big plus against scarfed Pokemon)

CONS

  • It has a weakness to ground and fire, both are pretty common types.
  • It doesn't have the best stats of all the mega's.

So I don't think it is over-rated(It is in OU). True it doesn't have the best stats, but stats don't mean everything in Pokemon. The Pokemon's movepool and ability mean a lot too.

Hope this Helps!
