How to choose the best Nature in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet

Choosing a Nature is no easy feat. There are some ways that players can make a more informed decision, however. One way is by looking at a Pokémon's base stats and another is by looking at its move pool. The best Natures will result from a combination of both of these things.

Base stats can help find the best Nature for a Pokémon as the perfect one will likely increase the best stat and decrease the worst stat. A Pokémon's move pool can also be useful, as it will give players an idea of which type of moves, and subsequently which stats, they should be prioritizing.
