How to choose the best Nature in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet

Players can find the best Nature for their Pokémon in a few different ways, but the easiest is by looking at the move pool and the monster's base stats. The best Natures will often increase the best stat of a Pokémon while decreasing the worst one.

Players should also consult the move pool to determine whether the Pokémon will use more Physical Attacks or Special Attacks. Pokémon using more Physical Attacks should have a Nature that boosts its base Attack stat, while Pokémon using primarily Special Attacks should have one boosting the Special Attack stat.
