Choosing the best Natures in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet isn’t supposed to be easy always. More so when you are introduced to brand-new Pokémon in the freshly released game. The ones in question – Shroodle and Grafaiai. You need not worry though; our guide will help out on the best Natures for Shroodle and Grafaiai in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet.
Best Natures for Shroodle and Grafaiai in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet
(All newcomers please note that Shroodle evolves into Grafaiai – the Toxic Monkey Pokémon – after reaching Level 28 in the game)
- Modest (Increases Special Attack but decreases Attack)
- Adamant (Increases Attack but decreases Special Attack)
Grafaiai has impressive offensive stats in its repertoire. Its base attack of 95 and Special Attack of 85 is more than enough for a Poison type Pokémon. This is the reason we advise playing around with its Attack and Special Attack since there isn’t a huge margin of difference between them. We went with Modest Nature as it provides a boost to the toxic Pokémon’s Special Attack but nerfs its Attack. Inversely, you can also try using the Adamant Nature in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet as it boosts Shroodle’s and Grafaiai’s Attack stats. However, it is completely your decision to choose any one between these two Natures as it can give you the offensive freedom you crave for.
If Speed is what you desire, take a look at some of these Natures too:
- Jolly [Increases Speed but decreases Special Attack]
- Timid [Increases Speed but decreases Attack]
Grafaiai has a pretty decent base Speed stat of 110. You can build on this by using specific Natures that can complement this stat. We went with Jolly and Timid Natures as they give your Pokémon a significant boost in Speed. However, keep in mind that Jolly and Timid Natures will nerf your Special Attack and Attack respectively. That is manageable as Shroodle’s and Grafaiai’s base offensive stats are quite solid too.
