I have used the Riolu from both my Pearl copy and my Platinum copy, and they are permanent members of my teams.

No I did not. I didn't want to train a level 1 up, especially since I was that far into the game. I will train it up to get a Lucario to complete the Dex.

I stashed him into a PC. I have used a Riolu that was traded to me before and evolved it into his older form, however...but I have yet to withdraw my own Riolu given to me at Iron Mountain and use it.

Well when I first received the egg and hatched it, I was pretty happy about having a Riolu! But the truth is I never used it (because I'm just too lazy). I leveled it to four, maybe even five and then put it away in the PC, never to be seen or heard from again. It just wouldn't fit in my team, plus they were all in their late thirties in level.

I only ever used it if it hatched as female.

Nope. I did train it enough for it to evolve, but that's it. I later bred him and obtained a Naive-natured Riolu which I EV trained, though.

I boxed my Riolu because at that time I have already planned a team.

I've personally never used a Riolu in a playthrough of D/P/Pt, as of yet. I always intend to but by Canalave I usually have a full team.

However I'm considering another playthrough soon using Pokémon I haven't used properly yet including Lucario, Gastrodon, Drifblim, Roserade, Garchomp and hopefully a Fire type as well. I have free time now so I'm probably gonna start on it soon.

As soon as I hatched the egg, I trained for hours until it became a Lucario. It is one of my favorite team members and is currently sitting at Lv100. I have no regrets.

I'm using it on my team right now. I managed to evolve my Riolu at level 16 or so (legitimately through a ton of massages and vitamins and a soothe bell!) and he learned bone rush for me, which was AWESOME! Personally, I can't see why someone wouldn't use Lucario at least once - he's amazing.

And to all those not raising Riolu because it would take ages... wut? really? It only took me about an hour to evolve him and then get him to about 22-25, by which time I was about to start heading for Snowpoint City. A good Lucario with about 100 attack EVs and Force Palm 1HKOs most of the icetype Pokemon on that route. That's easy training right there. He was easily only 2-4 levels lower than the rest of my team (about 38 or so) by the time it came to the Gym Leader.

He's one of the easiest Pokemon to grind up considering when and where you get him and where you're headed next..

I had Infernape so no point in raising a redundant Pokémon.

Recommended if you start with Turtwig, though.

I did! I loved his design and couldn't resist training him up. :) He became one of the powerhouses on my team in Diamond.

Lucario was by far my favorite Pokemon in the Sinnoh region, so I used it as one of my main Pokemon in my Diamond team. ~blu

Of course I did. You'd have to be insane not to, it evolves into Lucario.

I don't think I used it. Diamond was my first pokemon game I don't even know what the heck I was doing. Lol.
Exactly what I was thinking.
Lucario is one of my favorite Pokémon ever, but It comes waaaaaaaaay too late in the game. Besides, when I was 5, I didn't know what I was doing.

I actually boxed mine and totally forgot about it. I do wish I had raised it though as I love Lucario!

Never when I played with Infernape. Steel-type resistances are nice, but I just found it to be a bit redundant. Should've played with Torterra more.

I never really raised mine, just walked around with it long enough to hatch the egg. I think maybe once I raised it to a Lucario, but never used it on my team.

At that point it was just level 1, and I didn't really bother levelling it up to 40s where all my other Pokemon were, so it just become a box filler, unfortunately.
