What is the best Nature for Tauros in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet

Similarly to Mankey and Girafarig, Tauros has gotten a new form in the Paldea Region. This Tauros comes in three different forms, each with its own unique type. The stats for these Pokémon are all the same, so the Natures will likely be the same.

  • Adamant (+Attack, -Special Attack)
  • Lonely (+Attack, -Defense)

Tauros has a great Attack stat and access to some great Physical moves, so Adamant and Lonely will make perfect Natures for this Pokémon. Players should prioritize Physical moves over Special Attacks in battle to get the most out of these Natures and this Pokémon.

How to choose the best Nature in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet

Choosing a Nature is tough because there is a lot to keep in mind to get the most out of your Pokémon. Players should look at a Pokémon's base stats, move pool, and their own playstyle to choose the best Nature.

While players should first look at a Pokémon's base stats to find Natures that complement them well, you should also check out a Pokémon's move set. This is because some Pokémon with great Special Attack stat, for example, don't have access to powerful Special Attack moves. This means that Natures giving an advantage to Special Attack stats would be wasted to a degree. The chart below can help players decide which Natures are best from the available options.
