Riolu is a small, blue, canine Pokémon. It has black legs and torso, a blue tail, and a yellow collar. It has rounded bumps on the backs of its forepaws. It has a black "mask" and red eyes. It stands on its toes instead of its entire foot. It is sensitive to a special type of energy called Aura; however, It does not have the ability to fully use these powers, although it can still emanate these waves to communicate and sense them, albeit only in ripples. Like almost all Fighting-type Pokémon, Riolu naturally has superhuman strength, stamina, and endurance and is capable of making long journeys on foot in a short amount of time. It is a playful, energetic, and loyal Pokémon.
- Due to Riolu's combination of Abilities, Steadfast can only activate in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness and Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky if Riolu becomes cross-eyed, barring being confronted with a foe that has Mold Breaker.
- When Riolu became a starter in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky it became the first starter Pokémon to be unable to be recruited or captured in another game of its trio as it cannot be found in Explorers of Darkness without using Wonder Mail.
