    Riolu (F) @ Eviolite
    Trait: Prankster
    EVs: 196 HP / 196 Def / 116 SDef
    Impish Nature (+Def, -SAtk)
    - Copycat
    - Protect
    - Drain Punch
    - Magnet Rise

    This little man takes the bread and butter Riolu's three moves and uses Magnet Rise as its filler in order to give any team an emergency answer to Sand Rush Drilbur / Sandshrew. I know I'm not the only one that uses Riolu to get into Knock Off wars with Mienfoo, so quite frankly he often doesn't have the bulk to live an Earthquake like I need it to. Granted, proper switching is required (or something dying) to get Riolu in on Drilbur, but a Magnet Rise on it wins games. He can't Earthquake, and either has to hit you with a resisted Rock Slide or X-Scissor, or a weak Shadow Claw, letting you Drain Punch for the 2HKO if necessary. Works best end game when you've eliminated little hippo, since fuck little hippo.
