Sinistea and Polteageist are sought-after Pokémon, like Zoroark. The best Natures for these Pokémon in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet are:

  • Modest (+Special Attack, -Attack)
  • Mild (+Special Attack, -Defense)

Sinistea and Polteageist's best Natures are Modest or Mild. This is because both of these boost the Pokémon's base Attack stat, which is perfect for these two since their Attack stat is already pretty high, and they also have access to some powerful Physical Attacks.

How to choose the best Nature in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet

Players should look at two main things when choosing a Nature for their Pokémon in Scarlet and Violet. A Pokémon's base stats and move pool will have the biggest impacts on the Nature. A Nature that works well with a Pokémon should raise the highest base stat and lower the worst one.

Players should also pay attention to the move pool because the best Nature will raise the stat used most by a Pokémon in battle. If a Pokémon uses primarily Physical Attacks, players should find a Nature that raises the base Attack stat. If a Pokémon relies on Special Attacks, Nature should raise the Special Attack stat. The chart below lets players find the best Nature for them.
