Best Nature for Shroodle and Grafaiai in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet

It's as poisonous as it looks.

Shroodle and Grafaiai are Poison/Normal type Pokémon first introduced in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet. These monkeys are fast and deadly, and choosing the correct Nature can help boost these devastating qualities. Let’s look at the best nature for Shroodle and Grafaiai in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet.

What is the best Nature for Shroodle and Grafaiai in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet?

The best Nature for Shroodle and Grafaiai in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet are the following:

  • Jolly (+Speed, -Sp. Atk)
  • Adamant (+Attack, -Sp. Atk)
  • Timid (+Speed, -Attack)
  • Modest (+Sp. Atk -Attack).

Shroodle and Grafaiai have high Attack and Speed, making Jolly and Adamant the most ideal Natures for both. However, the gap between its Attack and Sp. Atk stat is close enough to allow you to grow the latter instead. If you want to give Shroodle and Grafaiai Special Attacks instead of Physical ones, you can opt for Timid or Modest.

How to choose the best Nature in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet

To choose the best Nature for your Pokémon, find its highest base stat and choose a Nature that has that specific stat to grow faster. Each Nature, unless it's a neutral one, raises a stat's growth by 10% and decreases another by 10%. Since Shroodle has a naturally high base Speed, Natures such as Jolly and Naive are good for it.

Of course, what Nature you ultimately choose will largely depend on where you will be using your Pokémon for the most part. Think about your Pokémon’s role in battle and the movesets you plan to give them. A Modest or Adamant Grafaiai will deal heavy damage if you only lean towards one type of attack (Special or Physical), so make sure all moves are either Physical or Special only!
