  • Adamant (+Attack, -Special Attack)
  • Jolly (+Speed, -Special Attack)

Adamant and Jolly Natures work exceptionally well for Larvitar and its evolutions Pupitar and Tyranitar. Because Larvitar, Pupitar, and Tyranitar have such a monstrous potential for Attack, he works marvelously with attack sets and an Adamant Nature. As a Physical Attacker, the decrease in Special Attack doesn't impact Larvitar, Pupitar, and Tyranitar. Their base speed is substantial enough even with an Adamant Nature for those seeking an Attack hound for their party.

If you're aiming for a Pokemon, that's quick but still packs a punch, a Jolly Larvitar, Pupitar, and Tyranitar are also excellent options. This Nature allows Tyranitar, when fully trained, to outpace strong opponents like Gengar, blitzing them with overwhelming power before they have a chance to retaliate.

In the end, we sided with an Adamant Larvitar so that when fully evolved, our Tyrnitar could obliterate anything in its way, even if it doesn't always strike first.

Larvitar is a Pokémon Brilliant Diamond exclusive, so those playing Shining Pearl will have to find a trading partner if they want to grab this powerful Pokémon.
