  • Adamant (+Attack, -Special Attack)
  • Jolly (+Speed, -Special Attack)
  • Modest (+Special Attack, -Attack)
  • Naive (+Speed, -Special Defense)
  • Timid (+Speed, -Attack)

Riolu and Lucario are most valuable when their Speed is optimized, so try not to settle on a Nature that lowers their Speed if at all possible. Physical attack is also very viable for Riolu and Lucario, so consider this when searching for a Riolu or Lucario to settle on.

Because Riolu and Lucario are well-rounded Pokémon, they are adept at using Special Attack. Those aiming to make a Pokémon focused on Special moves could do well with Riolu and Lucario. Riolu and Lucario also have poor Defense, so avoid lowering it any more than it already is with your Nature.
