Brute Bonnet falls into that category as a prehistoric version of Amoonguss. If you want to add this new creature to your team, you’ll want to record the best natures up for grabs to make the most of this ally.

Best Natures for Brute Bonnet

Because Brute Bonnet has a varied stat pool, you can choose from several natures and builds to better suit your play style and preferences. While making a build for Brute Bonnet, you can focus on either Attack or Defense. See which natures work best for each form below.

Offensive Build

Adamant+Attack/-Special Attack
Jolly+Speed/-Special Attack

Those who want to focus on an offensive build should put points into their Attack or Speed stats. The Adamant nature will raise the Attack stat at the cost of Special Attack points. Since the Special Attack stat is so low for Brute Bonnet, it won’t need that stat to perform in battle, making this negative negligible.

The Jolly nature will up the Speed stat with the same bane. Because Brute Bonnet is so slow, the Jolly nature helps compensate for its shortcomings and earns our confidence. We went with Jolly during our playthrough

Defensive Build

Impish+Defense/-Special Attack
Careful+Special Defense/-Special Attack

Those aiming to build a defensive Brute Bonnet can put points into either Defense or Special Defense stats. These two stats have identical base values, so which you go with is entirely up to preference. The Impish nature will improve Defense, but the Careful nature adds to the Special Defense stat. Each option takes points from the Special Attack stat, but that won’t matter for a physical fighter like Brute Bonnet.

Though several natures work well for Brute Bonnet, some choices will stilt this Pokemon’s ability to fight. If your Brute Bonnet has some of the following characters, you can find another or change its nature with one of the game’s consumable mint items. Mints are available at the Chansey Supply store in Montenevera but will cost you $20,000 each.

Offensive Build

Modest+Special Attack/-Attack
Quiet+Special Attack/-Speed

Since the Special Attack stat isn’t a good fit for Brute Bonnet, it won’t help to invest points there. This is especially true when the nature in question lowers its crucial Attack and Speed stats. The Modest nature takes moments from the Attack stat while the Quiet nature denigrates Speed. Neither option helps Brute Bonnet excel in a fight. These are the worst options for Brute Bonnet and should be evaded at all costs.

Defensive Build

Mild+Special Attack/-Defense
Rash+Special Attack/-Special Defense

Those who want to make a defensive Brute Bonnet will wish to avoid natures that hurt the Defense and Special Defense stats. Natures like Mild and Rash draw from its crucial stats while giving the Special Attack a boon, and it’s a poor substitute for other options out there.
