Pokemon Nature Guide

Since their inception into the game in the third generation, the Nature of a Pokemon has become an integral part of battle strategies because of the effects have they on the overall statistic growth of any given Pokemon. Coupled with the proper Individual Value spread, giving the Pokemon a good base statistic spread. A good IV spread mixed with the proper nature augments statisics 20 to 30 points higher at maximum. In competitive battles, Nature is another factor that will determine the build of a Pokemon.

Each nature (with the exceptions noted below), increases one statistic 10% at the expense of another dropping the same amount. Not to say it’s always a bad thing. Some Pokemon are naturally strong in some areas while weak in others. It’s this knowledge which really powers most of the Nature choices for any given competitive Pokemon.
