Mareep, Flaaffy, and Ampharos are extremely popular Pokémon in the franchise, like Chancey. The best Natures for these Pokémon in Scarlet and Violet are:

  • Modest (+Special Attack, -Attack)
  • Quiet (+Special Attack, -Speed)

Players should go with an Ampharos that has a Calm or Quiet Nature. This is because the Pokémon already has an impressive Special Attack stat and access to some unstoppable Special Attack moves, so increasing this area even further will yield the best results.

How to choose the best Nature in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet

Players wanting to pick the best Nature for their Pokémon should look at its move pool and its base stats. This is because a Nature should work in tandem with both things. The best Natures will increase a Pokémon's strongest stat and decrease its worst.

The move pool also has a big impact on which Nature works best. If a Pokémon has a lot of Special Attacks, they should have a Nature that boosts that stat. If they have a lot of Physical Attacks, the Nature should boost the base Attack stat. Players can use the chart below to see all of their options.
