How to choose the best Nature in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet

It isn't always easy to choose the best Nature for a Pokémon as a lot of thought goes into finding the right fit. Players should look at a Pokémon's base stats, move pool, and their playstyle when deciding on a Nature.

A Pokémon's base stats should be catered to, choosing a Nature that increases its strongest stat and lowers its worst stat. However, this is not always true, as some Pokémon with great Special Attack stats don't have good move pools filled with Special Attacks. In these instances, players should go with the Nature that the Pokémon can best utilize in battle.
