Why is Lucario a Steel Type?

Doesn't make sense.

Presumably because of the spikes on its hands and chest.

Because it doesn't make any f***ing sense.

Adamantium skeleton.

Yeah, I was just thinking about this the other day myself. Lucario always seemed like it would be Fighting/Psychic instead of Fighting/Steel to me.

That's the way to do it. Let us not question Charizard and Gyrados' not-dragon statuses, Altaria's dragon status, or why Dodrio can learn Fly.

Or why it's a flying type at all. Or why Jirachi is steel type, or how Typhlosion can use Iron Tail.

Also, Lucario's typing is part of the reason I don't love it. Anubis is my favorite mythological figure, but it's typing doesn't make any sense whatsoever.

I would think an Anubis-based pokemon would be a Psychic, Dark, or Ground type
