Dragonite is a pseudo-legendary, like Salamence, and sits at the top of the tier list regarding power. The best Natures for Dratini, Dragonair, and Dragonite in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet are:

  • Adamant (+Attack, -Special Attack)
  • Lonely (+Attack, -Defense)

Adamant and Lonley are perfect Nature options for these Pokémon. This is because Dragonite has a wildly high Attack stat, and paired with its move pool of high output Physical Attacks, these Natures can really push this Pokémon over the edge.

How to choose the best Nature in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet

Players trying to find the best Nature for their Pokémon should look at its move pool and base stats for the most reliable advice. The base stats of a Pokémon should interact nicely with its Nature, raising the highest stats and lowering the weakest ones.

A Pokémon's move pool should also be catered to. If a Pokémon has a move set full of Physical Attacks, it should have a Nature that boosts the base Attack stat. If it uses mostly Special Attacks, then the Nature should boost that stat. This is so the Pokémon can compete best against opponents in battle.
