I want to teach my lucario a special fighting type move, and I want to know whether to choose focus blast or aura sphere. In other words, power or accuracy?

I would go with aura sphere.
I'd go with aura sphere if I were you; a much more reliable move.
Yeah Aura Sphere is the better move here, a lvl.65+ Lucario can do unfair amounts of damage with it...

Aura sphere never misses, has 20 pp, and power of 90. It's a a special attack.

Focus blast only has 5 pp, and 70 acuracy, but it has a 120 power and may decrease the oponents' special defense. It also is a special attack.

I'd go with aura sphere because it's a relable move as it never misses, as well as more practical pp wise, and also is decently strong. Of course, if your fighting style is more risky, I'd go with focus blast.

Aura Sphere because of infinite Accuracy and it's power ain't too bad considering infinite accuracy.The reason accuracy is more important is because a pokemon can't get hurt if it can't get hit. As in if you chose focus blast and you really need the power and it misses you're beat. But if you chose accuracy you'd do a little damage but it would hit more.
