Go on missions that have the sun ribbon as the reward after you beat the darkrai story or kecleon markets in dungeons in places you later unlock.

You need his IQ up past one star and a sun ribbon
If you want a sun ribbon search in golden chambers (you will need a water type as your leader to get the deluxe boxes in the chamber) and as a reward in jobs
I did the same thing to get the lucario I have now
Good luck!

You need a Sun Ribbon to evolve Riolu into Lucario. Best found in Golden Chambers or Mission rewards. If Riolu's your 'hero' or partner, then you need to beat Darkrai first, then complete the aforementioned requirements. Hope this helps.

I think you just raise his IQ up past or to one star and you have to have a SUN RIBBON, because that's how you do that in time or darkness. You can get this by doing REALLY hard missions but I doen't have one for you, srry but I'll keep my eye out for one then give it to you. Oh yeah! If he's your partner or hero you have to beat darkrai, get Dialga on your team along with Palkia. Hope that helped!

Guest said: 19th May 2014 | REPORT
YOU DO NOT need either Dialga or Palkia, just play the game through so you can evolve, then worry about the Legendaries.

You need a thuder stone to evolve picachu...I've also noticed that after you unlock marine resort, the Ursaring in town will talk to you, letting you know that something is different at luminous spring...after that you should be able to evolve. Hope this helps.

Some of you are on the right track. You need to defeat palkia twice and get him on you're team. Other wise you will not evolve. All others may evolve though. This is because when you try to evolve, it says somting about a SPAICAL somthing, so you need palkia.

Here ya go...

Manaphy: You don't go to a dungeon to recruit Manaphy!! Manaphy comes back later in the story all on his own. If have no clue what I'm talking about, then you probably haven't even gotten Manaphy from the Surronded Sea yet!

Palika: Palkia can be found in the Spacial Rift.(You can recruit 'em after the whole "Darkai" scene.) Again, if you have no clue what I'm talking about, then you're prob not even far enough in the game yet... (When you meet Palika for the first time, it crashes right through the roof of your team base.)

a couple things about this response.(about evolving riolu)

1. you need and IQ of at least 2
2. yes you can eat orange gummis but if you want to level up lots whilest finding orange gummis then you can find a hard wondermail for a wonder gummi (wonder gummis work for every type)
3. Im pretty sure you do have to recruit Palkia even if you didnt, also try not to say that to everyone because they'll get confused.

Sorry for spoiling your fun though.

When you and your partner are able to evolve Ursaring will tell you to go to luminious spring
