Best Natures for Clodsire

Careful+Special Defense/-Special Attack

Clodsire is a tank, which means you’ll want to invest in natures that help it survive hard-hitting attacks. The best stat this Pokemon has is its HP, and since you can’t use a nature to boost that, we suggest bolstering its defenses instead.

The Careful nature boosts Special Defense, protecting your Clodsire from Special Attacks. It’ll lower Special Attack, but Clodsire primarily uses physical attacks to fight others. The Impish nature focuses instead on the Defense stat, and it’s a great option when facing physical attackers. Which of the natures that you choose depends on what your playstyle is. Clodsire has a higher Special Defense, so we chose the Impish nature to balance the stats.

Worst Natures for Clodsire

If you don’t want to hunt for the best nature in the game, avoiding a few natures is important. Stay away from each of the natures listed below when seeking a Wooper or Clodsire in Scarlet and Violet.

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

Because Clodsire needs its Special Defense and Defense stats, natures like Rash and Mild that take away from these critical stats are a bane to its growth. Both natures take away from the Defense stat and raise the Special Attack stat, and it’s a poor pairing that will make running through Scarlet Violet harder than it needs to be. If you find a Clodsire with either of these natures, we suggest you keep looking for a better fit!
