Best Nature for Geodude, Graveler, and Golem in Pokémon Legends: Arceus

Which Nature is the best?

Natures are attributes that all Pokémon possess in Pokémon Legends: Arceus. These attributes will raise one of the Pokémon's stats by 10% and lower another by 10%. Natures can be chosen strategically to make a Pokémon more efficient in battle. While many players don't pay any attention to a Pokémon's Nature, it can be the thing that sets their Pokémon apart from the rest. A Pokémon's Nature can be found on its summary page in the in-game menu.

In Pokémon Legends: Arceus, Geodude, Graveler, and Golem are Rock and Ground-type Pokémon with a hefty defense stat. These Pokémon can really take some hits in battle with little impact. The best Natures for these Pokémon will raise their defense capabilities even higher to make it even tougher for their opponents to defeat them.

How to choose the best Nature

Because Geodude, Graveler, and Golem's highest stat is their defense, players will want to raise this stat with their Nature. These Pokémon also have an impressive attack stat, so it is recommended that their Nature does not lower the attack stat. Relaxed and Impish will both raise the defense of these Pokémon while only lowering the stats that are already of little use to them.

The best Nature will ultimately come down to playstyle and how players use their Pokémon in battle. If players don't rely heavily on defense and like to use high damage physical attacks, then it is best to go with a different Nature for these Pokémon. Natures like Brave and Adamant are great options as they will raise the physical attack strength of the Pokémon.
