Nature Mints can be purchased from the Chansey Supply shops. The Chansey Supply shop has different outlets spread around Paldea. The locations are Montenevera, Cascarrafa, Mesagoza, and Levincia.
The Chansey Supply shops have green lighting and texts in green outside their branches. The entrance door also has a green covering at the top. It’s not too difficult to spot once you are in the right city.
Similar to how Artisan Bakery specializes on food items like Peanut Butter, or how Bagin’s contains a horde of colorful backpacks, Chansey Supply features medicinal items and nature mints that focus on the betterment of your Pokémon.
One nature mint will cost you around 20,000 Pokédollars. Each nature mint will provide a boost for a particular attribute of your Pokémon, but at the same time, it’ll slightly nerf another one of its attributes.

For example, the Naughty mint will cause the Attack stat of your Pokémon to rise, but the Special Defense will go down. On the other hand, the Brave mint may boost the attacking capabilities as well, but will lower the speed.
Based on the existing stats of your Pokémon and how you want to utilize it, you should choose the correct mint.
If you’re interested in increasing the Speed of your Pokémon but don’t plan on making use of its Special Attack all that much, the Jolly Mint might just do the trick for you!
