The PokÚdex - Extended Fanon Edition:

Perhaps 'Steel-type' is but a shorthand for a pokemon with a metallic construct?
This is gonna take a while.

I doubt all "Steel" types are made of actual steel. Bronzor is probably some kind of blue-colored bronze, for example.

That's what I'm saying. Besides, some steel-type pokemon are steel type because they have build-in swords, and I'm fairly certain swords can be made out a whole lot of stuff other than just plain old steel.

I don't see why Lucario is Steel type.

Since 2 or 3 spikes makes you a Steel-type...

Your army sucks.
It's possible that metal in Pokemon is a highly complicated bio-steel with a low melting point.

The only other explanation I can come up with is that those shoulder pads it has, the collar it has as a Riolu, and those 'Aura Sensors' on both of them are also made of some kind of metallic thingahoosit. That or its bones, which make no sense.

Metal bones seems to be the best explanation, though Lucario is already Wesleyish enough without being Pokemon!Wolverine.

Maybe its fur has the consistency of steel wool?

Oh, lord, that must itch like you wouldn't believe; grooming them must be a pain in the ass.
 2961 Calamity Jane, Sat, 5th Feb '11 7:29:05 PM from California Relationship Status: I'd need a PowerPoint presentation
Perhaps? I guess from the RL standpoint its a steel-type because it's based on Anubis, and Egyptians are usually related to coffins and fake beards, which are metallic.

[up]From what I know about Anubis, that makes no freaking sense.

I know. But that's just the idea got from a thought process. "Anubis = Egyptian God. Egypt = Coffins. Coffins = Metal".

Insane Troll Logic may be in effect here.

Anubis would probably be a Dark and/or Ghost-type if nothing else.
Hugging a Vanilluxe will give you frostbite.

It's typed rmctagg09.

I think my mind is just making big assumptions here. I haven't had a chance to read up on Egyptian Mythology yet.

Thought: Steelix has a metal shield to defend it from heat, yes. But a focused Fire attack is going to hit a small area, probably penetrating that one area. And the internal defenses against heat may be far lower than normal.

(Enough heat will cause nuclear fusion, which changes the proton count. tongue)

@Sullen: Actually Egyptian Sarcophagi are made of three shells, with the outermost being made of gold.

[up]True but there isn't anything in nature short of stars that can do that. If Pokemon flames were that hot, then Magcargo's internal temperature may not be that farfetched...

That may be so, but gold, as we all know, is really not that durable; if that is the reason for Lucario being considered a steel type, then it's a particularly flimsy one.

[up][up] That seems reasonable.

A quick peek at the Wikipedia Article for Anubis is that he's the god of the dead and by proxy also the god of mummification, since he was the first one to mummify someone, in this case Osiris (yet another god of death), who became the king of the netherworld. Long story short, Anubis is closely related to Sarcophagi, and thus closely related with stones and the gold that encompass them. It's also related to graveyards, meaning that they are closely connected to spirit and thus, auras.

Yes, but still a very flimsy reason for Lucario's typing.

I'm pretty sure that Luacrio is just pure Rule of Cool.

Guess Who...?
From a biological standpoint, should we assume that Riolu and Lucario have an Extra Ore Dinary skeletal structure? Seeing as they have very solid-looking metal(lic) spikes popping out of a number of regions on their body...
