Riolu appearing in Pokemon Go

Riolu Hatch Day is just around the corner, giving Pokemon Go fans a chance to hatch plenty of Riolu and evolve a powerful Lucario. Here’s what you can expect.

Events that feature specific Pokemon hatching from Eggs are pretty common in Pokemon Go, but the upcoming Riolu Hatch Day will be an entire three-hour event dedicated to just Riolu.

Known as the Emanation Pokemon in the Pokedex, the adorable Fighting-type Riolu is a popular little creature in Pokemon Go – mainly because it eventually evolves into the fan-favorite Lucario when you give it 50 Candies.

As well as being one of the most popular Pokemon of all time, Lucario is also a standout in the Great League and Ultra League. It’s also a top Fighting-type attacker for Raid Battles, so all-in-all it’s a pretty great Pokemon to have in your collection!

Details of the Riolu Hatch Day have now been shared, including the bonuses you’ll be able to enjoy.
