Lucario, the cross-species stud...
Forgive me for some places you can imagine I've gone, and correct me if I'm mistaken, but it seems to me that Lucario gets shipped with people, a lot. Whether Cynthia, Maylene, Aaron, Korrina or someone else, if they have a Lucario, there's going to be fanworks putting them together in a romantic capacity. Much of it's porn; possibly made to troll people rather than arouse them, but there's also some softcore "comfort" art.
I want to know, what is it about Lucario that makes him a particular figure for shippers? Is he considered handsome? So his oversized hips make him look phallic? Is it some extension of his mythology about being a mentor to people? Is it just that he's iconic? What do you think?

Omg I can't stop laughing
but you do have a point, I've seen the kinds of stuff your referring to. I think the simple answer is: it's humanlike (anthro), so that appeals to a particular fanbase. You see the same thing with Renamon and a whole slew of Disney characters. It's also shown to have above-average intelligence and can communicate with humans, iirc (maybe that was just the Lucario movie).
It's because of this I think it's so common to see it paired with human characters.
