}}'''Riolu''' (Japanese: '''リオル''' ''Riolu'') is a {{Type|Fighting}}-type [[Pokémon]]. It is believed that Riolu came after Lucario, due to the fact that Lucario first premiered in the [[Hoenn]] series anime movie [[Lucario and the Mystery of Mew]]. Riolu can be as loyal as an [[Arcanine]] and can be pretty hostile to strangers but warms up to people pretty fast.

Riolu also have a black "mask" with two black appendages on either side, and red eyes.
==Special Abilities==
 
Riolu are sensitive to a special type of energy called Aura as Lucario is. Riolu's evolved form, [[Lucario]], can use these waves for attacks, tracking, or to predict future moves. However, Riolu does not have the full potential of these powers, using them as described in ripples rather than waves. Moves such as [[Aura Sphere]] or [[Detect]] can not be learned by Riolu due to its inability to fully use the power of aura.
