The following night, the Egg hatched into a Riolu. As Ash wasn't exuding the same Aura as he had earlier, Riolu didn't recognize him and instantly fled from the [[Cerise Laboratory]] and started attacking various [[wild Pokémon]], although all of them were too strong for it. Ash finally caught up to Riolu as it was getting attacked by an {{p|Onix}}. During the battle against the [[Pokémon category|Rock Snake Pokémon]], Riolu recognized Ash's Aura as the same one it had sensed earlier. With both Pikachu and Riolu attacking Onix, Ash was soon able to drive it away, and then, he took Riolu to the Pokémon Center to be healed. After Nurse Joy treated Riolu, it expressed willingness to be {{pkmn2|caught}} by Ash, which he agreed to.
In [[JN023]], Ash begins training Riolu with the help of [[Mimey]] using the defensive skills of the Barrier Pokémon.
In [[JN024]], Ash used Riolu to battle {{tc|Team Rocket Grunt}}s trying to steal Pokémon at the [[Resort Area]], but it was defeated by their {{p|Purugly}}.
