In this guide, I will explain the best nature for Koraidon and Miraidon in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.
The Best Nature for Koraidon in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet
Koraidon is a Pokemon that thrives with the stats of Attack and Speed. Due to that, any nature that buffs those two is a great choice for Koraidon.
The best nature for Koraidon is Adamant. This is because it buffs the Attack stat that Koraidon needs while reducing the irrelevant Special Attack stat. If you can get any nature, Adamant should be your go-to choice.
For secondary options, any nature that increases Attack without reducing Speed is a solid choice. This includes Lonely (+Attack, -Defense) and Naughty (+Attack, -Special Defense).
Keep in mind that these two natures have the setback of reducing Koraidon’s defensive stats, thus making it more vulnerable to certain moves.
Lastly, Speed-buffing natures are also solid choices, as long as they don’t reduce the Attack stat. Specifically, Jolly (+Speed, -Special Attack) is the best choice, with Hasty (+Speed, -Defense) and Naive (+Speed, -Special Defense) coming right after.
The Best Nature for Miraidon in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet
Contrary to Koraidon, Miraidon focuses on the stats of Special Attack and Speed. Natures that buff these two stats make great choices for this legendary.
The best nature for Koraidon is Modest. This is because it buffs the Special Attack stat that Miraidon wants while reducing the useless Attack stat. If you can get any nature, always go for Modest.
For secondary options, any nature that increases Special Attack without reducing Speed is a solid choice. This includes Mild(+Special Attack, -Defense) and Rash(+Special Attack, -Special Defense).
Keep in mind that these two natures have the setback of reducing Miraidon’s defensive stats, thus making it more vulnerable to certain moves.
Finally, natures that increase the Speed stat are also solid options. Timid (+Speed, -Attack) is the best choice, with Hasty (+Speed, -Defense) and Naive (+Speed, -Special Defense) coming right after.
