Lucario is pretty versatile, you can do either physical or special, or even mixed.

I think people use physical on him more, so you'd want Adamant/Jolly in that case to use with Close Combat and Bullet Punch. (Or Meteor Mash and Mach Punch)

If you want to go special for Aura Sphere, Flash Cannon, and Vacuum Wave, then you want Modest/Timid.

Mixed is an option, but I think you're better off choosing physical or special and sticking with it. But if you do go mixed, you probably want Hasty or Naive.

As for ability, it's really up to you. For his default abilities, Inner Focus is better than Steadfast. A speed boost is nice but avoiding being flinched in the first place is better. His hidden ability, Defiant, is good if you do physical and you're confident in your ability to predict Dark-type attacks.

If I had to make a decision, I'd say Adamant with Defiant. But like I said, Lucario is flexible.

Gallade is sightly faster than Lucario. He's somewhat stronger in Atk and much stronger in SpDef. But he can't really be used as a special attacker like Lucario can. Lucario has a better movepool, and a better typing IMO.
The difference between fiction and reality is that fiction has to make sense.

Lucario's HA is justified, and what I use on mine. It's best paired with a Pokemon like Whimsicott that knows Beat Up to give Lucario +4 Atk. Dynamx and sweep. I use a physical set, jolly nature. Lucario is faster, but has worse defenses than Gallade. Lucario does have the better typing, and I personally prefer it to Gallade.

Do you have a spare ha Lucario for trade? I have been searching all day I haven’t found one with ha.

Sorry, I just saw this. Give me about 15 minutes and I can breed you a HA Riolu. It could take much longer if you want perfect IVs, but I can do that.

Thanks! Reply when you are ready I will be checking the thread.
I don’t really care about IVs because I plan on using him for breeding but if it has good IVs that would be cool too.
