What ultimate strategy? Lay down Stealth Rock, then Baton Pass an Agility or two (or use a really fast Pokemon) to a Pokemon with Roar, Whirlwind etcetera? It would work with Spikes and Poison Spikes as well, or even Hail or Sandstorm (and anything else I've forgotten), though in those cases it depends on what the opponent uses of course,or even you.
If that's your ultimate strategy, I really hope you're not serious... And if you never thought of this: I really hope you can see now why such moves force you to go last.

Another Pokémon lays down hazards. Riolu eventually comes out and uses Roar. Riolu uses Copycat to mimic that Roar. Copycat always goes first due to Prankster (except if the opponent uses a priority move, as it's likely to go first due to its Speed). Roar will thus come before most Pokémon attacks and other status moves, causing the opponent team to rotate through the hazards and eventually die off.
The only reason it isn't banned is because other pokemon can have priority moves and easily kill off Riolu. Even if it has a Focus Sash, It has to use Roar to start the Copycat strat again, which risks a KO.

1. Yeah, it gets hits by priority. That's the only thing that can hit it. 2. Unless you have your priority user out when the Riolu is out, you're going to be taking a lot of damage. You have to get lucky and have Roar select your priority user, cause you won't be able to switch it in. 3. If your priority user is dead, you're ****ed. There's literally nothing that you can do.
It is the most broken thing in the entire game right now. It needs to be banned.
