}}'''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]].

Captain VasAdded by Captain Vas

In the anime, Riolu has made an appearance during Pokémon Ranger and the Kidnapped Riolu! Parts One and Two, which aired as a one hour special commemorating the release of Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia. This Riolu had been trained to use Aura Sphere and was unnaturally strong. It was taken away from its owner by a group that wanted to exploit it but Ash and co. returned it, with Kellyn's help. This Riolu developed a strong bond with Ash.

In the MangaEdit

In the Pokémon Adventures manga, Maylene has a Riolu. It is seen using Drain Punch against Pearl's Monferno, who Platinum borrowed in order to fight her. Then, when Diamond's is traveling alone, he is given an egg by Riley, which eventually hatched into a Riolu. In Pokémon Diamond and Pearl Adventure! Hareta gained a Riolu egg in Serious Training on Iron Island which hatched into a Riolu later on in that chapter.

EvolutionEdit

Riolu evolves into Lucario when you level it up during the day with high happiness.
