How to choose the best Nature in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet

There are a few different ways players can choose the best Nature for a Pokémon. This can be done by taking a look at a Pokémon's base stats and move pool. Both of these things have a heavy impact on whether a Pokémon's Nature can be effectively used or not.

A Pokémon's best Nature should increase its strongest base stat and lower its worst one. This is usually the case, but there are some exceptions. The exceptions can be spotted by looking at a Pokémon's move pool and making sure its stats and Nature line up with its makeup of Special and Physical Attacks. A Pokémon with more Physical Attacks should have a Nature that increases its Attack stat, and vice versa.
