Pokemon GO Lucario Complete Guide: How To Catch, Evolve, Best Movesets, Counters and Strategy

Lucario (pre-evolutionary state Riolu) is a very unique Pokémon in the community, and obtaining one can be difficult. But don’t worry; we’ve put together this guide to help you, so you’ll know where to find them in no time!

Where to get Lucario?

Lucario spawning in the wild has not been reported. It can only be obtained by hatching an egg, which means it is a one-of-a-kind Pokemon. Unfortunately, a fully evolved Lucario cannot be hatched from an Egg alone.

Instead, they’ll have to collect the following eggs:

  • 2km eggs
  • 7km eggs
  • 10km eggs

Or receive Gift Eggs in the hopes of hatching Riolu, Lucario’s precursor.

Riolu is incredibly rare with only 0.7 percent of 7km and 10km eggs hatching. It would take an average player at least 143 eggs to find all of these eggs. If they want to hatch this rare baby Pokémon, they’ll need to invest in at least 50 incubators.


Gamers who want to track down and capture Lucario should put on their favorite pair of sneakers and steer clear of the nice weather. In order to evolve Lucario, players must incubate a large number of eggs, hatch its pre-evolution, use 50 Candies, and evolve it.

Frankly, in order to obtain a Lucario in Pokémon GO, players may have to pay real money. They may also want to attend as many events as possible in order to maximize their chances of catching this extremely rare and popular Pokémon.
