The evolutionary line of Hoppip has a natural predisposition for high Special Defense, similar to another Pokémon Wo-Chien. Those looking to get the most out of Hoppip, Skiploomk, and Jumpluff should choose one of these Natures:

  • Calm (+Special Defense, -Attack)
  • Careful (+Special Defense, -Special Attack)

Because these Pokémon already have a high Special Defense stat, it would be wise to make it even tankier by raising this stat more. Since the main objective will be to stave off enemies' blows, it is okay to take the hit on a lower Attack or Special Attack stat.

How to choose the best Nature in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet

Choosing the best Nature can be overwhelming at times, but there are things that players can look out for to make the decision an easier one. Players should check a Pokémon's base stats and move pool to determine which Natures make a good fit.

The Pokémon's move pool will be made up of primarily Special or Physical Attacks. Pokémon with heavy Physical Attacks should be paired with Natures that raise the Attack stat, while Special Attack wielders will do best with Natures that increase the Special Attack stat. The Pokémon's base stats can also give a glimpse of what areas the monster can excel in.
