Copycat only works with the last used move.
Emboar managed to fire a flamethrower off but Riolu dodged it.
Copycat was then used. Copycat in the anime is apparently recalling how the opponent used the move (in the user's head), then it duplicates the move.
Riolu didn't use "flamethrower" before Emboar did (if Emboar was going to, it would be using its 2nd flamethrower not its first), Riolu used copycat after Emboar already used it.
Any visual scenes to the contrary, as I've said were just memories being played in Riolu's mind.
Misinterpreting my posts is not your fault, negative repping me, and getting very sensitive about my posts because you misinterpreted my posts however is your fault. Think really hard, before negative repping or making a big deal about my posts. I don't appreciate being negative repped for reasons that are a result of misinterpreting my posts.
