If you’re reading this guide, then it means you’ve uncovered one of Pokémon Scarlet & Violet: The Teal Mask DLC’s secrets: Mr. Jaq and his free Sinnoh starters. In my game, I hatched a Turtwig, but I’ve seen different ones from friends, leading me to believe that whatever you get is completely random, too. If you’re looking to build your own Turtwig Torterra in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet, below are the natures you can opt for.
Best natures for Turtwig, Grotle, and Torterra in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet
The best natures for Turtwig, Grotle, and Torterra are the following:
- Adamant (-Attack, -Sp. Attack)
- Careful (+Sp. Defense, -Sp. Attack)
Torterra’s like Empoleon’s anti-thesis. You can build them similarly with boosts and axes on different stats. Torterra learns a lot of good physical attacks, making Adamant one choice. It also has a pretty high Defense stat, so Careful can make it a more rounded tank. If Pokémon Scarlet & Violet finally decide to add something similar to a Battle Tower, Careful should also be the option you should go for.
For now, both options are pretty okay for Raids! Try them out.
How to choose the best nature in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet
When choosing the best nature in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet, always think about the content you’re going to use it for. For example, for story and NPC trainer battles, always opt for an offensive build. But for Raids and PvP, it’s sometimes good to have a support build or even a defensive one.
