Are you scared of choosing the wrong Natures?

An important step of every Pokémon game is to gather a good team of monsters, and Pokémon Scarlet and Violet are no exception. Trainers are tasked with leveling up their Pokémon and preparing them for battle, though one often overlooked strategic point of interest is their Nature. They can have a profound impact on the stats of a Pokémon, so it is a good idea to hunt down good-Natured monsters from the start. This guide will help determine which Natures are best for Shuppet and Banette in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.

Shuppet and Banette aren't quite as powerful as some other Pokémon, like Coalossal, but they can be more useful given they have the right Nature. Here are some good options:

  • Lonely (+Attack, -Defense)
  • Naughty (+Attack, -Special Defense)

Since these ghostly Pokémon have an exceptionally high Attack stat, players would be wise to further put their eggs in the all-out Attack basket. It's worth noting that they don't learn too many Physical Attack moves naturally, so it would be a good idea to hunt down some TMs to boost their arsenal. Some good Natures that pair well with Shuppet and Banette are Lonely and Naughty.
