Trivia

Origin

Pokémon Sunday is a variety show that aired in Japan, in which a Lucario named Director Lucario was one of the mascots. The attacks on this card are based on techniques performed by Director Lucario on the show—the Roger Poké-BODY also reflects a stance Director Lucario adopted. Brick Break is a move in the Pokémon games that Lucario can learn via TM31. The Fever Step attack is a reference to a popular Konami redemption game.
