I recently caught Riolu in Y, and I was wondering: if I traded it my Omega Ruby, could I still evolve it to Lucario with high friendship or do I have to evolve it in Y?

Of course you can evolve Riolu in other games, except of course not in gen 1 and gen 2 games (I think gen 3 too, but I am not sure), because you can't trade from Pokemon Y to these games. But if you want trade r\Riolu to Omega Ruby from Y and evolve it, it will work. And that is same to any other Pokemon.

Hope this help :D
Y is a gen 6 game. It can't send Pokemon to any earlier generations, including 4 and 5.

Friendship resets when you trade a Pokemon. You would have to evolve it in your Y game if you wanted a Lucario immediately.

I wanted to evolve it in my omega ruby play thru
Yeah. the high friendship won’t carry over. You’d have to level it up, feed it berries, etc, to get it back up to where it was.

In every game, Riolu evolves into Lucario via high friendship. If its friendship is almost maxed out in Y, the friendship of your Riolu will reset if you trade it to Omega Ruby.

Also can I trade my lucarionite if my riolu holds it
yes, you can trade mega stones. However, the Lucarionite is obtainable in ORAS, so you probably wouldn’t need to.
