Tinkatink and its evolutionary line (Tinkatuff and Tinkaton) are, despite their colorful appearance, pretty hardcore. These are the best Natures for Tinkatink, Tinkatuff, and Tinkaton in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.

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

Like Wo-Chien, Tinkaton has a great Special Defense stat and can really tank some hits in battle. It also has a nice Speed stat that helps it outpace opponents. Careful and Jolly are great Nature choices because Tinkaton's move pool heavily favors Physical Attacks over Special Attacks, which means there won't be much missed with the lowered proficiency in Sp. Attack.

How to Choose the Best Nature in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet

It may not seem difficult, but there's a lot to remember when choosing a Pokémon's Nature. Players should make a note of a Pokémon's base stats, move pool, and their own playstyle to make the best choice.

A Pokémon's move pool is important because there are many instances where a Pokémon with a strong Special Attack has mostly Physical Attacks in its roster. In this case, players will want to avoid buffing the Special Attack stat to take advantage of the moves available to that Pokémon. Players should also note how they intend to use that Pokémon in battle, as players mainly focusing on Special Attacks, for example, will not do well with a Nature that buffs Physical Attacks. The chart below can give players a better idea of their options to make a stronger choice for their Pokémon.
