Best Nature for Kricketot and Kricketune in Pokémon Legends: Arceus

GameFreak, please buff this Pokémon.

Both Kricketot and Kricketune are very weak Bug Pokémon compared to other early-game Bug Types. In Nuzlockes they may be the only Bug Type players will be able to catch for a while, but a bad Nature might mean leaving it in the pasture for something else. These are the best Natures for Kricketot and Kricketune in Pokémon Legends: Arceus.

Best Nature

As Kricketune's highest stat is its Attack, raising its Attack will make up for its weakness everywhere else. Kricketot's Base Stat Total is 194, and Kricketune's Base Stat Total is 384. These stats are relatively low, but Kricketot gets a Base Attack stat of 85 to use.

  • Adamant Nature raises the Attack stat by 10 percent while reducing Special Attack by 10 percent. While the Pokémon can learn Special Attacks such as Bug Buzz, its higher Attack means that X-Scissor will always do more damage, even with a Special-Attack-raising Nature.

  • Naive Nature will raise the Attack stat by 10 percent while reducing Speed by the same amount. Both Kricketot and Kricketune have low Defense and Special Defense, and lowering them even further would make them frailer than they already are. Sacrificing Speed isn't too bad, but Adamant Nature is still the preferred Nature to get.
