Well in my team I run Reversal Lucario with:

Lucario @ Salac Berry
EVs: 4HP/252ATT/252SPD
Endure
Reversal
Swords Dance
Crunch

If the crunch isnt very effective and they're not hitting then it can be a bit cumbersome, but once it's swords danced and endured down to 1hp Reversal has a base power of 600 & the salac berry will make you faster than just about anything, the only snag is priority moves

That would be why you would want to, optimally, run Extreme Speed over Endure. You really don't need it. Though, Lucario does already have movepool-itis, you could also consider running Substitute over Swords Dance, or you could even run both. It would help with the priority issue, if you aren't running Extreme Speed.

It's just hard for Lucario to run the set with his paper-thin defenses; not that he can't run it insanely well, mind you. Immunity to Sandstorm is lovely there.

Raikt, would you then suggest a Focus Sash instead of Salac Berry, so it can get to max reversal power? I also have a Scizor with Baton Pass and Swords Dance, so could go with ExtremeSpeed over SD?

Back onto Amphy, Aerodactyl can do Fearow's job, better, and Stealth Rock is a big boost. Salamence is obviously very strong, though personally i avoid pseudo-legendaries and legendaries (the latter of which i've noticed you're not fond of). Aerodactyl would also give an ideal lead, which as previously mentioned you slightly lack.

Focus Sash isn't really needed; it's not that useful of an item mid-late game, as you would need to guarantee Stealth Rock or Spikes wasn't down in order to not ruin it. Lucario has nice resistances due to its typing, so that's one of the reasons it can switch in so easily.

If you have Swords Dance on Scizor and Baton Pass, you really shouldn't be running a Reversal set to begin with. Baton Pass chains and Reversal sets usually conflict in that, Reversalers never want to come out until very late in the match, while Baton Pass chains want to happen fast.

OT: Amphy, it would depend. Aerodactyl is more of a lead, but Salamence would really work. You could also use Dragonite, or the unpopular but still badass Flygon. Any of them can have a Choice Scarf / Band / Life Orb and turn into a nasty min-late game sweeper.

I would personally go with Flygon.
I like the utility, and its not as common as Salamence is.
I would step as far away from the OU tier as I possibly could if I were you.
Originality FTW
