The Pokemon games have been around since the late 90’s and they remain some of the most popular video games to date. Despite their relative simplicity, these games offer many complex mechanics for players to learn and understand. One such mechanic is Natures, which can alter the stats that a given Pokemon has. Since so many players are unfamiliar with how to change Pokemon Natures, we’ll take a look at how it’s done in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.
What Are Natures?
Natures are an aspect of a given Pokemon that can affect its stats in various ways. Every Nature falls into one of five different categories, with each having its own stat modifiers which greatly influences how a certain Pokémon will perform in battle. For example, a “Jolly” Nature causes Attack to be raised while Special Attack is lowered. A “Lonely” Nature raises Attack but lowers Defense.
These variations can drastically impact the effectiveness of your pokemon team – making it important to understand how Natures work and how they can be changed in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet Mints.
How To Change Pokemon Natures
The process for changing Natures in Pokémon Scarlett & Violet Mints is fairly straightforward. First, you’ll need to find a special item called an Everstone which has a 100% chance of locking in your current Nature when used during breeding on any compatible species. This ensures the offspring will inherit the same Nature as the parent who held the stone.
Alternatively, players can use special items known as Mints to adjust their Pokémon’s Nature without resorting to breeding or relying on luck for an Everstone drop. Both Scarlet and Violet Mints are available from PokéMarts throughout Johto, so they’re easy enough
