With some exceptions, Pokémon learnsets match those from the core series games:

Super Smash Bros. series

Lucario uses Extreme Speed as its up special. When activated, Lucario performs a quick dash. Moving in different directions alters which directions Lucario will move.

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, this move did no damage and moved at a set distance. In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS/Wii U and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, in addition to doing damage, as Lucario builds up more aura, the move travels farther and does more damage.

Pokémon UNITE

In Pokémon UNITE, Extreme Speed is Dragonite's and Lucario's first move.

Dragonite can obtain the move by evolving into Dragonair at level 5 and upgrading Twister into it instead of Dragon Dance. The user dashes toward the designated enemy, damaging and slowing all enemies in a small radius around the target upon impact, throwing the primary target and shoving others away. Using this move resets the cooldown of Multiscale. At level 11, this move also negates any movement speed decrease the user may have before the move is used.

Lucario can obtain the move by reaching level 5 and upgrading Quick Attack into it instead of Power-Up Punch. The user dashes forward, damaging all enemies hit and healing the user for each enemy hit. The first enemy hit will reset the cooldown of Extreme Speed. This effect cannot occur on the same target more than once every 10 seconds. Attacking immediately after the dash will perform a unique attack in an area dealing 75% Atk and can critically hit. At level 11, the move increases the user's Attack by 15% for a short period of time after use.
