Despite its light-hearted nature and premise, any Pokemon game is surprisingly deep and requires a lot of thorough planning. Like Pokemon GO, the latest Pokemon title also has a ton of hidden stats that players should take note of, one of which is a Pokemon?s Nature. Here?s a guide on the Pokemon Natures in Pokemon Sun and Moon.

Natures List

Natures have long been in the series, but what a few fans may not know is that Nature affects how a Pokemon develops. Pokemon gain different stats increases per level depending on their Nature, and it?s something to study deeply if one plans on becoming a great trainer.

Some Natures are perfect for Pokemon. It would depend on the base stat build of a Pokemon. A Pokemon that has a bonus increase for Attack per level would be best with Adamant, Brave, Hardy and other natures that add a bonus to the stat.

Natures are randomly generated and will be determined once the player gets hold of a Pokemon. Natures are also determined when picking a starter. Players can simply soft reset Pokemon Sun and Moon until they get the Nature that?s perfect for their starter Pokemon.
