Best Nature for Shinx, Luxio, and Luxray in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl

One tough electric type.

Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl give players the chance to experience the fourth generation Pokémon and its famous monsters in this beautiful remake. One of the fourth generation most iconic creatures is Luxray, the Electric-type Pokémon. Luxray and its precursor evolutions, Shinx and Luxio, can be a terror on the battlefield, provided players grab a Pokémon with the correct status bonuses or Natures.

We've listed the best Natures for Shinx, Luxio, and Luxray below:

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

When using any of these three Pokémon, make sure that Shinx, Luxio, and Luxray use physical attacks. These moves are far more potent than Special attacks for these Pokémon. As a Physical Attacker, the decrease in Special Attack potency won't impact Shinx, Luxio, or Luxray's performance in battle.

Choosing which Nature best suits your Shinx, Luxio, or Luxray ultimately comes down to personal preference. Adamant and Jolly are the best fit for this evolutionary line, but your playstyle may require one type over another.

Those seeking a Pokémon hits hard in a fight should select an Adamant Nature. Shinx, Luxio, and Luxray won't always outpace opponents with the Adamant Nature, but they'll leave an impact.

If you're looking to blitz enemies in battle, select the Jolly Nature. Jolly Nature prioritizes Shinx, Luxio, and Luxray's Speed stat, giving them a far better chance at striking first in battle.
