Cameron's Lucario (Japanese: コテツのルカリオ Kotetsu's Lucario) is the first Pokémon that Cameron is shown to have. It tends to walk around outside of its Poké Ball.


As a Riolu

Lucario first appeared as a Riolu with its Trainer in Goodbye, Junior Cup - Hello Adventure!. They revealed that they had come to enter the Pokémon World Tournament Junior Cup only to find out that it had already ended, much to Cameron's displeasure. Later, Cameron and Riolu revealed to Ash and his friends that they planned on entering the Unova League, but only had seven Gym Badges.

In The Road to Humilau! Cameron and Riolu joined Ash and his friends to travel to the Humilau Gym so Cameron could get his final Gym Badge. After getting lost and separated from Cilan and Iris, Riolu, Cameron, Ash, Pikachu, and Meloetta fled into a cave to shield themselves from the pouring rain and stayed there for the night. Later, they met Marlon, the Humilau Gym Leader, who took them to the Humilau Gym so that Cameron could have his Gym battle. Although Cameron wanted to use Riolu in the fight, he accidentally left it on the side, forcing him to use his other Pokémon to defeat Marlon. Afterwards, Riolu and Cameron went their separate ways from Ash and his friends.

Later, Riolu reappeared with its Trainer at Higaki City where they camped out near the building where the Higaki Conference was being held. After Cameron revealed he forgot to enter in the tournament, Ash dragged the two to the building to register. In BW104, Riolu was used against Bianca's Emboar in the Higaki Conference. Despite the much larger size of its opponent, Riolu was able to gain an advantage by using Circle Throw to use Emboar's weight against it. Emboar quickly regained the advantage in the fight, but Riolu countered by copying its moves with Copycat. Eventually, Riolu defeated Emboar with Vacuum Wave, making Cameron the victor of the battle.

In BW106, Riolu defeated Kenton's Gigalith, which allowed Cameron to progress to the Top 8 of the Higaki Conference.

In BW107, Riolu was used against Ash's Unfezant in the Higaki Conference. Despite the type disadvantage, Riolu managed to defeat Unfezant. Next, it faced Ash's Snivy and managed to quickly overpower her. However, Snivy quickly managed to counter Riolu's attacks. This caused Riolu to evolve into a Lucario, making it much stronger. The battle continued, and Lucario was able to use its new strength to easily overpower Snivy before knocking her out with his newly-learnt Aura Sphere. Lucario then battled with Ash's Pikachu. As Pikachu's recent battles took his toll, Lucario triumphed over Pikachu, winning the match for Cameron.

In the quarter-finals, Cameron found himself up against Virgil and his team of Eeveelutions. The final battle came down to between Lucario and Virgil's Flareon; however, Lucario had already been weakened by Virgil's Espeon and was quickly finished off by Flareon's Fire Blast, eliminating Cameron from the competition.

Personality and characteristics

As a Riolu, with Cameron

Since its debut, Lucario was shown to be annoyed by its Trainer's carelessness. Despite this, it is friendly, and gets along well with other Pokémon as well as with its Trainer, which can be attributed to the fact that it evolved from Riolu, who evolves from friendship. In battle, Lucario is a very powerful fighter, and was able to take down opponents much larger than it even as a Riolu, such as Bianca's Emboar and Kenton's Gigalith.
