By breeding

In Super Smash Bros.

Force Palm is Lucario's side special move. It involve's Lucario charging up Aura in its aplm, then blasting it at the foe. It has less knockback and more range than his forward smash. If Lucario uses it next to its opponent, it becomes a grab that is stronger. In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, it can be customised to Advancing Force Palm (which causes Luacrio to dash forward while using it but becomes open to hits if whiffed) or (Long-Distance Force Palm (which further polarises its stats).
