The only way to get your hands on is to hatch the Pokémon Egg obtained from Riley at the end of Iron Island. As with all Pokémon Eggs, it’ll eventually hatch if you walk around with it in your party.
How to Get Lucario
Once you’ve got a , it’ll evolve into when it gains a level during the Day and its Friendship value is 160 or over. Thankfully, it’s not a difficult task, since the will start with 100 Friendship after it’s hatched.
Anyway, here are the ways to improve Friendship, from most to least effective:
- Let hold a Soothe Bell (obtained from the Pokémon Mansion on Route 212).
- Feed Grepa, Hondew, Kelpsy, Pomeg, Qualot or Tamato Berries.
- Level Up in battle.
- Feed vitamin items (eg. Calcium) or Rare Candy.
- Use Battle Items (eg. X Attack) on .
- Walk around with in your party.
If you want to check Friendship, we suggest taking a trip to the Pokémon Fan Club building in Hearthome City. It’s located east from the Poké Mart. Inside, there’s a lady in the top-left corner who’ll comment on the first Pokémon in your party.
|Oh, my… I think this one really hasn’t taken too kindly to you.||0|
|Hmm… It seems to dislike you a little.||1 to 49|
|It’s feeling neutral toward you. It’s up to you to change that.||50 to 99|
|It’s warming up to you. That’s my impression.||100 to 149|
|It’s quite friendly to you. It must be happy being with you.||150 to 199|
|It’s very friendly toward you. I can tell you treat it kindly.||200 to 254|
|It simply adores you! Why, I feel like I am intruding!||255|
The main comment to look out for is the 150 to 199 one, which begins “It’s quite friendly”. That means you don’t have long to go to hit 160. Of course, if you over-shoot the required Friendship and get one of the later messages, that’s fine as well.
