I had a friend tell me about the Riolu trap, but I don't know how to set it up. Please help!

Riolu Trap refers to the Roar/Copycat/Prankster strategy.

Best answer

If you're referring to the Roar/Copycat/Prankstar strategy demonstrated in this video; "Diabolical Riolu Sweep" by TheFlamingSpade, it doesn't work anymore in Generation VI.

>Generation VI

>Same as before, except that now, Copycat will not receive increased priority if a Pokémon with the Ability Prankster uses a move with decreased priority.

Source: Copycat - Bulbapedia

So it's essentially useless now.
