The Lucarian script was invented by Sakana Oji for his conlang of the same name, which is supposedly used by the Lucario from the Pokémon franchise. The script was modelled after Ian James' Amethyst script.
- Type of writing system: alphabet
- Direction of writing: left to right in horizontal lines
- Used to write: Lucarian
- All the consonants have ascenders or descenders. Tylebur is the only consonant with both an ascender and descender.
- The vowels are split into two groups; a rounded group with dots above or below them, and an unrounded group without dots. The vowel e'up does not have a rounded counterpart.
- A'ez and otyt are the only vowels with ascenders.
- The consonant hyluno is pronounced /h/ before a vowel, and /x/ before a consonant or at the end of a word.
- The names "chome" and "rejyz" are archaic names; the letters rarely occur at the beginning of a word.
- The vowel e'up is pronounced /ə/ in unstressed positions; the penultimate syllable is usually stressed.
- "Yshis" is not a real word in the Lucarian language; it was just created for the name of the letter. Also, yshis neither ever occurs in the beginning nor the end of a word.
