Nope! I've always found the Lucario family to be pretty boring. They're so "look at me I'm amazing" whilst offering little to know proof bar having a movie dedicated to them haha. The Steel/Fighting typing is very cool and Aura Sphere was a huge bonus, but aside from those points I've never gotten on with Lucario. The design is scary and he seems very over-rated to me.

Unfortunately no. I already had a team planned out and Lucario just didn't fit. I had Infernape so I thought there was no reason to get another fighting type.

When my Riolu hatched, its ability was adamant. Adamant is the best nature a Riolu can have, and because of that, I immediately began training him. Once he evolved into Lucario, I started to EV train 'em and make him as strong as I possibly can. When it finally reached level 100, I made him an official member of my online battling team. I didn't want to have this Pokémon on my team at first, but I guess plans can always change. ^^"

    Whenever I choose Chimchar, I never use Riolu on my team as I find Infernape to be a Fighting-type.

    However, I did use Riolu in one Platinum playthrough (when Torterra was my starter), and it proved quite useful.

      In gen4, nope. I had heard Lucario was good and I loved him in the anime movie, but I didn't want to take the time to raise him up from an egg. My team was already rounded out at that point and I couldn't replace anyone. In B/W2 however, they were available much earlier, and my Lucario became a valued team member for the whole game.

      I've used the Riolu in a few play-throughs, not all of them though. I don't like using it all the time. Something I would always do though is pick up the egg, even if I wasn't going to use it. I liked to complete my Pokedex. It was rather easy back then. Now with more than 600 Pokemon in the Pokedex, it's a challenge! D:

      I've actually never really used that Riolu before in my teams because I either didn't have a spot for a Fighting/Steel-type in my teams or I already had another Fighting-type. I don't like duplicate types. The most I did was to hatch Riolu and evolve him to Lucario for Pokedex-filling reasons.

        I used it, cos Lucario. It's cool in my opinion.
        I don't even think there're people who didn't use Riolu. xD

        I tried using it but for some reason it just didn't suit me very well so eventually I decided to switch it out for a Honchkrow in my Platinum. Maybe someday I'll try using him again but I suppose it's just not the type of Pokemon I can use for some reason?

          I didn't use it in my main in-game team, but I did hatch it so I could get a Pokedex page registered... I did end up evolving it post game, along with many other Pokemon I was evolving for the Dex, by giving an Exp. Share and grinding at the league.

            I really didn't know much about Lucario when I got the Riolu, but I thought it was a legendary, so I did train him a lot and evolved him and Lucario really did wreck.

              Riolu was a huge part of my team in diamond it was a funny story no lie. It hatched shiny!
              No lie. So yeah, its the one you see in my trainer card. It was my first shiny (Which at the time I actually didn't know anything about shinys) so i thought it was too precious to keep in a box so I gave it an exp. share and know its level 94.

                I never had the chance to ever train him. He just basically sits on my PC all day.

                  Fortunately, I just got it hatched from the given egg. And of course, I will need to raise it to have a strong team. Currently I have a 49 Empoleon and 48 Rapidash which are the strongest in my team hence I need to use it.

                    Oh man! I never thought about it in ages! Well I got the egg before beating the gym leader at canalave. After I transferred my L.G. & EM pkmn I was all set! But my favorite other then (Charizard) is Lucario so I wanted to train it soo bad. So I just got him to Lv.50! (he's O.P man!)

                      The team that I did have, I had no room for Riolu, so I just left him in the box. And there today he still sits.

                        I always wanted to use Riolu so bad. But I never learned how to evolve it, and to this day I still don't know how to evolve it. I don't think I ever do want to know, in the grim chance that I might accidentally figure out how to do it one of these days.

                          No, I didn't use it, since my lead is a Lucario that I got from the GTS well before I got the Riolu egg.

                            Yeah, it was kind of a pain for me, but I went through the trouble of raising it up to level with the rest of team, took awhile to get it up to the 30-40's where everyone else was at, but it was always worth it .

                              Nah that Riolu egg came into the picture after my team was fully formed. Pretty terrible timing, because Lucario is obviously an attractive option to any team. That's why I was happy to see it early on in B/W 2.

                                I used it in platinum, it was actually a big part of my team later, and I used it to defeat the elite four.

                                  I used it. Somewhat... It was like level 20 before I put him into the PC box. I might come back to it though.

                                    Lucario is one of my favourite pokemon and that egg is the reason. Despite the level gap, it's not like it took all that much work to bring him up to speed with the rest of my team and upon doing so I didn't regret it.
