Best Nature for Wooper and Clodsire in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet

So many choices.

With the number of Natures in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, it can be tough to decide exactly which one is best for your Pokémon, especially for newer Pokémon like Squawkabilly. Natures play a heavy role in how well a Pokémon performs in battle because it has an effect on its stats and growth over time. This guide will cover the best Natures for Wooper and Clodsire in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.

What is the best Nature for Wooper and Clodsire in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet

Wooper is a returning Pokémon, though it has a unique Paldean form, and its evolution, Clodsire, is entirely new to the franchise. This will make the two Pokémon pretty enticing for trainers. The best Natures for Wooper and Clodsire in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet are:

  • Careful (+Special Defense, -Special Attack)
  • Sassy (+Special Defense, -Speed)

Because these two Pokémon have a great Special Defense stat, it is best to find Natures that complement this. Careful and Sassy are great choices and only decrease stats that aren't as useful to these two in battle.

How to choose the best Nature in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet

The best Nature for each Pokémon in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet mostly comes down to the Pokémon's stats and the trainer's playstyle. Players should look at a Pokémon's stats and figure out which one is the best, using that to guide their choice of Nature. Natures should complement a Pokémon's base stat makeup. This is all with the caveat that players actually use a Pokémon's stats effectively. If a Pokémon's best stat is Special Attack, but a player doesn't use Special Attacks in battle, then they may want to approach Natures with a different strategy. This chart below can help players decide further which Natures are best for them.
