Best Nature for Tentacool and Tentacruel in Pokémon Legends: Arceus

What is the best Nature for the Jellyfish Pokémon?

Natures play an important role in Pokémon Legends: Arceus. While players don't have to pay attention to a Pokémon's Nature, they affect the Pokémon's performance in battle. The Nature will raise one of the Pokémon's stats by 10% and lower another one by 10%, making a big difference when facing off against opponents. You can find a Pokémon's Nature by visiting its summary screen in-game.

In Pokémon Legends: Arceus, Tentacool and Tentacruel are Water and Poison-type Jellyfish Pokémon. These Pokémon have a high special defense stat and can outlast many opponents in battle.

Best Natures

  • Gentle: Special Defense (+), Defense (-)
  • Calm: Special Defense (+), Attack (-)

How to choose the best Nature

Since Tentacool and Tentacruel have a high special defense, the best Natures will further increase this stat. Gentle and Calm Nature will increase the Pokémon's special defense while lowering other, less important stats. If players choose the Calm, they should be sure to avoid physical attacks, as their effectiveness will decrease due to this Nature.

Players will ultimately be able to decide which Nature is best for their Pokémon as it really comes down to playstyle and how the Pokémon are most frequently used in battle. If players rely heavily on a specific stat, then they should find a Nature that boosts that stat and lowers another, less important, stat.
