Pokemon Scarlet and Violet: Best Natures for Ceruledge

Make the Fire Blades Pokemon an on-field terror in Pokemon Violet.

In Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, players can add a new slew of Pokemon to their team, including a powerful new Fire/Ghost type in Ceruledge. While hunting for the best Ceruledge, you’ll want to find its first evolution, Charcadet, in the wild. Because evolving this new Pokemon in Violet takes plenty of resources, you mustn’t waste time on a poor fit. Finding the best natures is critical if you want to make the most of the Ghost Blades Pokemon. Check out what type of Ceruledge can slay the competition in the Paldea region.

Best Natures for Ceruledge

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

Ceruledge is a physical attacker, which means it’ll need the Attack stat. Because the Attack stat is far more important than Special Attack with Ceruledge, the Adamant nature is excellent for this Gen IX Pokemon. You won’t use the Special Attack stat with your new ally, so don’t fret about the negative impact on your partner’s stats.

Though Adamant is a strong contender for your nature hunt, another option is available. If you’d rather amp up Speed to outpace other fighters, the Jolly nature will help you do that. Like the Adamant nature, Jolly lowers Special Attack. What nature you choose depends on your playstyle, but we went with an Adamant Ceruledge to make the most out of this Pokemon’s impressive Attack stat.

Worst Natures for Ceruledge

While several natures are good fits for Ceruledge, the worst options can make for a below-average buddy. Steer clear of the options below when searching out a Charcadet to level up. Finding your ally may take some extra time, but the wait will be worth it.

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

Because the Modest nature lowers the Attack stat and boosts a Pokemon’s Special Attack, it’s a poor fit for the Ghost Blades Pokemon. The Quiet nature also ups the Special Attack stat but instead lowers the Speed stat. As each of these natures offers a tradeoff that isn’t worth the hassle, we suggest looking further for your future Ceruledge. After you find a good fit for your team, you can invest in evolving your Charcadet!
