Lucario is based on the Anubis, witch is based on a Jackal, witch last I checked wasn't blue. So does Lucario being blue have anything to do with his aura gimmick or is it just a color the designers liked? Same goes with his shiny being yellow.

Yes, it most likely does. Aura is normally depicted as a blue field of energy surrounding an object, signaling its emotion and/or thoughts. Since aura is normally depicted as shades of blue and a secondary color of gold/yellow, the designers might have colored him that way to go along with his "aura".

But only the designers of Pokemon know for sure.

Kyogre appears to those with a heart of gold in HG, and Groudon to those with shining silver spirits in SS.
So if Lucario is a steel type, and its shiny form is a bright yellow...
That must mean...
I'm lost.
That's just to go with the name Heart Gold and Spirit (Soul) Silver iirc. Nothing to do with Lucario since that's not aura :P
aura:the distinctive atmosphere or quality that seems to surround and be generated by a person, thing, or place. -Google-

I don't know. It's definitely a "distinctive quality." I know this won't work in game, but I just found it pretty funny. :>

No, I don't think so. It's just a color the designers liked. Aura Sphere is blue, but Aura does not actually exist, so there isn't anything to bas it on. Besides, why would the Shiny be gold, then? That's got nothing to do with Aura. I think Aura Sphere's color was based off Lucario rather than the other way round.

I didn't say anything about aura sphere cause it's not Lucario's signature move but whatever
