Picking the best Nature for a Pokémon can be difficult, but it is a must for players wanting to build a strong competitive team. There are some things to keep in mind when picking out a Nature. This guide will help you figure out the best Nature for the Paradox Pokémon, Scream Tail, in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.

What is the best Nature for Scream Tail in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet

Scream Tail is a Paradox Pokémon, similar to Iron Treads, that players can encounter in Pokémon Scarlet. The best Natures for Scream Tail in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet are:

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

The best Nature for Scream Tail in Pokémon Scarlet is Careful or Impish. This is because the Pokémon has great defensive stats, making it a damage sponge in battle. The reason it is best to lower the Special Attack stat here is that, in Scream Tail's move pool, the majority of its powerful moves are Physical Attacks and won't be hindered by this decrease.

How to choose the best Nature in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet

Players have a few different ways to make choosing a Nature easier. They can look at a Pokémon's move pool, base stats, and their own playstyle to help narrow down the possibilities. A Pokémon's move pool is a great thing to look at first, as the Nature should reflect what move types (Physical or Special) a Pokémon has a majority of. If there are mostly Special Attacks, the Nature should increase the Special Attack stat, or at the very least not lower it.

This doesn't always work, as some Pokémon have an equal mix of both move types. In this case, players should look to the base stats. The best Natures will strengthen a Pokémon's strongest stat and lower its worst.
