All Lucario resistances in Pokemon

As a dual Fighting and Steel-type Pokemon, Lucario can resist damage from the following types:

  • Normal
  • Rock
  • Bug
  • Steel
  • Grass
  • Ice
  • Dragon
  • Dark

That’s not all, since Lucario is also immune to Poison-type attacks.

By pairing Steel with Fighting, Lucario can receive neutral damage from Fairy, Psychic, and Flying-type attacks that aren’t usually effective against a Steel type.

In total, six types deal neutral damage and three are super-effective against Lucario, so keep that in mind when trying to defeat or catch one in Pokemon games. The remaining nine types won’t do much against the Aura Pokemon so don’t bring them to battle if you want to keep them in one piece.
