I just recently hatched a shiny Riolu but it has an Impish nature and I planned on evolving him into a Lucario and using him on my team. So is Impish a bad nature for a Lucario?

Honestly Impish is not a very good Nature for Lucario especially if you're play competitively and running a Special Set, as Impish increases Defense and decreases Special Attack.

Natures I'd recommend for Lucario:

Physical Set: Jolly (+Speed -Special Attack), Adamant (+Attack -Special Attack).

Special Set: Timid (+Speed -Attack), Modest (+Special Attack -Attack).

But since it's Shiny it up to you what you do with it, if you want my advice especially if you're playing competitively I'd try to get a Lucario with one of the Natures above.

Natures, EV's and IV's are much more important than a Pokémon being Shiny. As Shininess does nothing for a Pokémon other than change it's color.

It's not the best, but with Lucario it's not worth keeping him off your team. Lucario has pretty overall stats and he can be used as a wall, also in his mega form his attack is higher than his special attack! He has decent defense and this nature can actual be useful so I would still use him. Hope this helped!

Yes, that helped a lot thank you!
