"Did you think I was offering a pastry when I jumped at Edge trying to Crunch him?"
Phoenix is Joseph's Lucario. He is named after Phoenix from the X-Men, before Joseph found out that the Riolu he caught was a boy.
Birthday: September 4
Met: Floccesy Ranch (Riolu)
Favorite Move: Close Combat
Likes: His allies, battle
Dislikes: Losing, Kirk
Phoenix is quite mild to his friends and his trainer. He talks seriously, but politely to all that he sees. Despite this, he greatly enjoys battling, and becomes much more fierce when doing so. Before Joseph could understand Monese, Phoenix was his go-to translator. He tends to never use contractions, except when very emotional or in battle.
Phoenix tends to be awkward around the opposite sex, and often ExtremeSpeeds away in the midst of a conversation.
He is apparently quite feminine looking for a Lucario, leading to some confusion from both Joseph and the makers of the J-Team TV show (where he is played by a girl).
Abilities in Battle
Phoenix uses his Aura less than other Lucarios, or even some humans, but he is nevertheless a fearsome opponent. He was used as his trainer's Fighting type before Joseph caught more. He is a very strong physical attacker, and (though he uses them less often) an even stronger Special Attacker.
- Close Combat, Aura Sphere, Vacuum Wave, Hi Jump Kick
- Crunch, Dark Pulse, Nasty Plot
- Stone Edge, Rock Slide
- Ice Punch
- Blaze Kick

|Close Combat||Natural||★★★★★||–||Phoenix tends to prefer this over mucking about with Aura.|
|Dark Pulse||Tutor||★★★★||–||Phoenix is a competent special attacker, and he uses this against Psychic or Ghost types.|
|Aura Sphere||Natural||★★★||–||Perfect accuracy is nice, but it's just not the same as punching the hell out of things.|
|Dragon Pulse||Natural||★★★||–||Impressive, but only useful against dragons.|
|Psychic||TM||★★★★||–||When you hate Toxicroak that much.|

Phoenix' mother came from the Dream World, and was apparently quite like him in many ways. He did not know his father.
One day, Joseph went to Floccesy Ranch while visiting relatives in Virbank, and caught him. The two became fast friends.
Phoenix likes Joseph and his team. He seems to have adopted the role of a big brother to Wolvie.
Though he doesn't show it, he enjoys antagonizing Felis.
- Was on Joseph's team when he beat the Unova League.
