    On my first playthrough of diamond, I tried training him. I only got him to level 20 before I realized it would take to long for him to catch up with my Level 40 team. I also chose Chimchar, which meant I already had a pokémon with fighting moves.

    However, on the playthrough I am working on right now, I am considering training him because my team can use a good fighting/steel type to fill in the 6th slot in my team. It's going to be between him and my Onyx (whom I am Considering evolving into a steelix, I have trained him since after the first gym battle). But, I am probably going to save the metal coat so I can get a Scizor, so it's a tough choice. I think I will try training him with the Vs. Seeker on this playthrough. Maybe I'll trade him into X/Y (if possible) to use later on.

      I did once! He was a good member of my team, filling in the fighting gap I had and had a nice secondary type. I pretty much grinded until he evolved when he was like level 28 or 29. He caught up pretty quickly, especially because he carried my team for the next two gyms.

        Okay, here is a quick update. I just went through Iron Island on my current Diamond playthrough and picked up my Riolu egg. I am going to hatch it and train it into a Lucario and probably switch my Onyx out with it. I will tell you if it is worth doing if you would like, but it is going to take some time to get this little guy up to speed. I can probably use him in the Ice-Type gym.

            I never used a Riolu until I had completeed the game and already had a formidable team. I used one on BW2. But on DPP, Lucario isnt that good. You have to invest many TM's on it and its power wont OHKO anything before it gets OHKO'd itslef.

                I didn't use it in my first Diamond run-through (I was a noob), but I incorporated it as my lead Pokémon in Platinum. It had an awesome moveset, and I nicknamed it "Pharaoh". Good times~

                      I think I used Riolu for my main team once in Pearl because why not, right?It served me well. Lucario is hyped for a reason- 'cause it's good. That was like the only time I've used one on my team, though. I don't think I was planning to add him to the team; just was like "oh I guess this guy could be more useful than (whatever I had)."

                        My team was full when he went to give me the egg. I forgot about it until the end of the game then traded it away for a shiny Milotic

                          I hatched then boxed him for a while. On the release of Heartgold/Soulsilver, I traded him to Soulsilver along with my Luxray. He was used in my first Soulsilver league clear.

                            I remember having him and being surprised when he evolved at a low level because i didn't realise he evolved on high friendship at the time.. i don't think i used him much after that..

                            I never bothered training riolu to get through the main storyline of Diamond and Pearl. You receive it at such a low level in an inconvenient part of the game that it almost seems like a hassle in having to train it. Lucario is one of my favorite Pokemon, and I've used it in other games (like Pokemon X) but I never used him in Generation 4.

                            Back when generation IV was the newest thing in Pokemon, Lucario was on basically everyone's teams, so I didn't want to use it. I did like his design, and I've used him in later games sparingly, but not in Diamond, Pearl or Platinum. Nothing against the line though. Riolu is adorable n__n

                              I actually really wanted to use him, but he was way too under leveled for my team. I tried grinding him, pokedaycare, a lot of things. In the end, he just never caught up. It was wasting too much time.
