Training the strongest Lucario amiibo in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Lucario was a top-tier threat in Super Smash Bros. 4. In that game, its Aura mechanic was stronger than ever; when paired with equipment, its attacks could reach nuclear power levels.

It’s still got potential, though, and that’s what we’re here to discuss today!

Pichu has sent sparks flying in Ultimate’s competitive scene, but does its newfound strength carry over to our metagame? The short answer: no. Unfortunately, Pichu is perhaps the weakest Pokémon in amiibo tournaments, though Jigglypuff and Squirtle are in contention for this title as well.
