How to choose the best Nature in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet

Players should look out for a couple of things when choosing the best Nature for a Pokémon. One thing is the Pokémon in question's base stats. These stats will give players a better idea of which Natures work and which don't. The best Natures should increase a Pokémon's best stat and lower its worst. Players should also keep an eye on the Pokémon's move pool, being sure not to increase the Special Attack stat on a Pokémon that only uses Physical attacks, for example.
