With Adaptability, Bullet Punch is just as strong as Extreme Speed, and it's not Normal-type, so use Bullet Punch.
If it's okay to talk Smogon here, we may as well be able to discuss Digimon here, too. - BiZzArR0

Extremespeed is +2 priority though, so you can use that to take out Talonflame

You could run both, or you could run either. Bullet Punch gets coverage, but Extremespeed's one advantage over Bullet Punch is +2 priority, which lets Lucario revenge faster priority, like Gale Wings Talonflame.
Oh no, not again.

So if I plan on using regular Lucario only, Extremespeed is still the better option? Even with fairies around?

I'm not sure how people run Talonflame with natures, but Jolly Lucario outspeeds an Adamant Talonflame by 4.

Mega Luke's speed boost doesn't kick in until the turn after Mega Evolution, and Bullet Punch fails to do appreciable damage (even Swords Danced) due to Talonflame's resistance to it. Extremespeed lets you Mega Evolve on a weakened Talonflame in a pinch. There's also always the chance that Talonflame might elect to run a Jolly nature. If you really intend to take on Talonflame with Lucario (although there are better 'mons for it, admittedly), Extremespeed is the way to go.
Oh no, not again.
