Pokemon Scarlet and Violet: Best Natures for Dreadnaw

Crunch the competition with a devastating Dreadnaw.

You’ll need a solid Pokemon team to be the best trainer in the Paldea region. How strong your Pokemon is depends on which stat boosts it has. Natures are the variable that impacts Pokemon stats the most, and those who want Dreadnaw on their team should know the best natures for this Water/Rock-type. You can find out what the best options are for your partner below.

Dreadnaw is a powerful Attack Pokemon with well-rounded stats. Its solid HP and Defense keep it from falling early in the battle, but you’ll want to focus your boosts on its Attack or Speed stats. If you need a Dreadnaw with oppressive Attack power, select the Adamant nature, which sacrifices Special Attack, a stat this Pokemon shouldn’t use anyway. If you want to bring this sluggish Pokemon up to pace with opponents, Jolly is a solid second option. While your partner won’t be the fastest fighter, boosting this stat may make getting attacks out easier. The Jolly nature results in lower Special Attack, but as mentioned earlier, that’s not a big deal.

While getting a Dreadnaw with the best natures is excellent for battling, it can be time-consuming. Despite the best natures being a great find, they aren’t crucial for a casual playthrough. If you’re not interested in grinding for a partner, try to avoid the following options in your search. Your partner should do just fine as long as you don’t pick one of these natures.

Modest+Special Attack/-Attack
Timid+Speed/-Attack
Mild+Special Attack/-Defense

While the best natures boost the most important stats for Dreadnaw, the worst natures impact those areas. The Modest nature lowers the Attack for Dreadnaw, expanding Special Attack instead. The Timid nature increases Speed but at the cost of Attack, and the Mild Nature boosts Special Attack while lowering Defense. Because Dreadnaw needs Attack and Defense to be at its most effective, these natures are the worst options. If you avoid these three options, you should be good to go on your adventure.
