Natures play an important role in Pokémon Legends: Arceus. While players don’t have to pay attention to a Pokémon’s Nature, they affect the Pokémon’s performance in battle. The Nature will raise one of the Pokémon’s stats by 10% and lower another one by 10%, making a big difference when facing off against opponents. You can find a Pokémon’s Nature by visiting its summary screen in-game.

In Pokémon Legends: Arceus, the Kite Pokémon, Mantyke and Mantine are Flying and Water-type Pokémon. Their highest stat is special defense, giving them an edge over opponents in battle by taking more hits than the average Pokémon.

How to choose the best Nature

Because these Pokémon have such high special defense, the best Natures will further increase that stat. Calm and Sassy will both increase special defense while lowering attack and speed, respectively. If players choose Calm Nature, they should avoid physical attacks as their effectiveness will be lowered with this Nature.

Players will ultimately be able to decide which Nature is best for their Pokémon as it really comes down to playstyle and how the Pokémon are most frequently used in battle. If players rely heavily on a specific stat, then they should find a Nature that boosts that stat and lowers another, less important, stat.
