Pokemon Sun and Moon Natures are another key feature in the game, first introduced in Generation 3 (Sapphire/Ruby). Natures can increase specific statistics of your pokemon – each pokemon can only have one nature, randomly given to them from a total of 25 different pokemon natures types shown in the Pokemon sun and moon nature chart below.
Sun and Moon Natures
Instead of just being a superficial personality, Pokemon Sun and Moon Natures actually affect the statistical growth of your Pokemon – Each nature raises one your statistics by 10% and lowers one by 10% (By the time it reaches max level which is 100). Something to keep in mind – five natures can increase & decrease the same statistic and from that have no effect.
|Careful||Sp. Def||Sp. Atk|
|Bashful||Sp. Atk||Sp. Atk|
|Quirky||Sp. Def||Sp. Def|
|Rash||Sp. Atk||Sp. Def|
Pokemon natures can also determine the type of berries it will like or dislike. Each type of berry can increase and decrease specific stats and is linked to one stat.
The type of berry your pokemon likes determines which stats it will excel and raise best in – the flavor of berries it dislikes will be the stats that are lower and doesn’t excel well in.
For example – a Pokemon of Hasty nature will like Sweet berries (Speed is raised) and dislike Sour berries (Defense lowered).
In most cases – it’s often times preferred that your pokemon sun and moon nature lowers a statistic that your pokemon doesn’t really need. Xurkitree, for example a god tier pokemon – primarily uses Sp. Attack moves, which makes it’s ideal pokemon nature to be Mild, one that decreases it’s Defense and raises it’s Sp. Attack.
Quickly find the nature that would be most ideal for your pokemon.
