Pokémon Natures

Different natures can affect your pokemons stats. Some natures keep everything neutral, when others up atk and lower defence for example. If you want a certain strength in your pokemon, make sure you capture one with the correct nature!

Natures also affect how your pokemon do in contests! To find the right nature, capture alot of the same pokemon, and check their nature once caught.
