Oh, hey, I've a tip for you guys, If you are having trouble with anyone except Florin, Do the surf glitch. It makes it so you are always surfing, Thus every battle you do will be on the Water surface

Lucario takes neutral damage from Psychic type attacks, so that's not the best option against it. Try to hit the Fire/Fighting types like Combusken and Pignite with Psychic type attacks. Xatu is decen

Thanks to everyone's help i beat him. Thank you everyone, and I'm sure this thread will be good for anyone trying to beat him. Once more, thank you all so much.

His combusken also knows thunder punch.along with speed boost ,it outspeeds most after one turn.so xatu might be a liability

buy a training card from the casino in the chrisola hotel to EV train your mons,EV training makes the earlygame trivial,You should not have any problems till about the 8th gym.The cards are also very cheap, only 10 AP each

That still wont help against lucario

It will, Lucario might not take Super Effect to Flying types but his S.Def is too poor to matter,..

Furthermore,The AI knows what move you're gonna use,and all of Keta's Pokemon (Lucario excluded) know protect.Especially Combusken whose speed boost pairs with protect perfectly.Swoobat can't oneshot anything that's not Mienfoo and can be easily KO'd with T-punch or Rock slide.Armed with the information of what move you will use,He'll only use protect at the most inconvenient moments.

mainly psybeam and Zen headbutt, that's all my Elgyem knows at level 22. 

Lucario takes neutral damage from Psychic type attacks, so that's not the best option against it. Try to hit the Fire/Fighting types like Combusken and Pignite with Psychic type attacks. Xatu is decent in this battle, but Air Slash won't help you a lot; it turns into a Grass/Flying hybrid attack because of the forest field and most of Keta's Pokémon resist Grass. Try to use Fighting type attacks against Lucario. Good Fighting types you can get at that point in the game are Meditite with Huge Power or Makuhita. Makuhita evolves at lv 24 and has two good abilities in Thick Fat(to resist the Fire type attacks from Keta's Pokémon) and Sheer Force(to further boost its damage output).

I didn't find Keta hard. 
I wrecked him with Solrock and Monferno.

Xatu is especially good here because it gets Air Slash which is field boosted. I had one on me as well. 

Granted it probably also helped that he missed Gale Strike all 3 or so times he went for it.  

 

In regards to Lucario, Psychic is neutral on it because of it's Steel typing. A field boosted Air Slash or a fire move is best there.

Personally I say Crawli should be re-christened 'the King of Ass Kicking'. 
I have 12 badges and he has remained my hardest gym leader battle thus far. 

Anything faster than galvantula absolutely destroys Crawli
