Nearly every one of Gible, Gabite, and Garchomp's stats are through the roof, like Slaking. Here are some good Natures that complement its strong suits.

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

This evolutionary line of pseudo-legendaries seems to be extremely capable attackers, with their Physical Attack outshining all of the other stats. For this reason, and since its moves are mostly Physical Attacks, it is okay to trade some of its Special Attack for a higher Attack or Defense stat with Adamant or Impish respectively.

How to choose the best Nature in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet

There are a couple of tips that could help players make a final decision between Natures. Firstly, it is important to review a Pokémon's base stats to see whether they are tankier and better suited for defending or are instead great attackers. The second step would be to look through a Pokémon's pool of moves to make sure that certain Natures would pair well.

For example, players wouldn't want to pick a Nature that boosted a Pokémon's Physical Attack if they don't have many Physical Attack moves. Lastly, individual playstyle can also impact this decision. Trainers may recognize that they prefer to play more defensively even though an attack-centered Nature may actually be better. The chart below can help players decide on a more case-by-case basis which Nature is best for them.
