How to choose the best Nature in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet

Choosing the best nature for Pokémon in Scarlet and Violet can be tough, but it is an important step in utilizing a Pokémon to its fullest potential. The best way to know which Nature works best with a Pokémon is to take a look at that Pokémon's stats. Find the Pokémon's highest base stat and then choose a Nature that compliments that stat.

Choosing the best Nature may not always go hand in hand with a Pokémon's stats, however, and will ultimately come down to each individual player's playstyle. Do you prefer using Special Attack moves over anything else? Modest may be a great choice. Prefer to focus on a beefy Special Defense Pokémon? Then Careful may be the best Nature for you.
