How to choose the best Nature in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet

Players hoping to find the best Natures for their Pokémon can do so in a few different ways. It's best to look at a Pokémon's move pool and base stats when looking for a fitting Nature. The Pokémon's move pool is a great thing to base a Nature choice on. A Pokémon that has a ton of powerful Special Attacks should have a Nature that increases their Special Attack stat and one that relies on Physical Attacks should have a Nature that increases its base Attack stat.

The second thing that players can base their choice on is the Pokémon's base stats. The best Natures for a Pokémon will increase a Pokémon's best stats and lower its worst ones. The chart below can help players figure out what their options are and make the best choice for their Pokémon.
