i know about the happiness evolution i think i did remember saying sometime back a few months ago that Lucario had game-breaking potential because technically speaking you can get it as soon as L6, which utterly steamrolls earlygame because of ridiculously high offense, speed, bulk, etc. brick break is useful as a stab but you can't use subway as an argument unfortunately. it's pretty annoying considering there are some pokemon who could make pretty decent use of BB early on (things like Electabuzz, Pignite and Darumaka), it just so happens that luke is one of the biggest benefactors of it. :/ @Brood: while in the past i'd probably agree with high volca, these days i'm leaning towards mid instead. signal beam is stupidly strong but it can't kill everything, that's not including just how many god damn types resist bug (six types urgh). this impression is somewhat skewed from using darm since darm's flare blitz is essentially disguised as the 'instantly win your opponent' button. @cant say: how did you miss cobalion it's right on the way to lacunosa, all you need is to just detour back into his clearing o.O aside from that, cobalion is pretty good imo, he sees immediate use against drayden as a good physical tank and you can immediately dump work up (and maybe volt switch for lulz) onto him.
