What is the best Nature for Tandemaus and Maushold in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet

Tandemaus evolves into Maushold and can result in two different forms, Maushold with a family of three or four. This shouldn't have any bearing on what Nature works best with this Pokémon as they share the same stats. The best Natures for Tandemaus and Maushold in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet are:

  • Jolly (+Speed, -Special Attack)
  • Hasty (+Speed, -Defense)

Since these Pokémon excel with their Speed stat, like Lokix, it is a good idea to use Jolly or Hasty to increase this while lowering some of their less useful stats.

How to choose the best Nature in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet

It can be tough to figure out what the best Nature is for your Pokémon in Scarlet and Violet. The easiest way to figure out the best Nature is to look at a Pokémon's base stats and choose a Nature that increases its best stat and lowers its worst. This can make the Pokémon rely more heavily on its strengths in battle, which is almost always helpful.

Players should know their playstyle before choosing a Nature, however, as playstyle overrules stats in terms of a Pokémon's best Nature. If players don't use Special Attack moves in battle, then a Nature that increases this stat won't be useful, even if it complements a Pokémon's base stats.
