Pokemon Scarlet and Violet: Best Natures for Dudunsparce

Dunsparce is back with a new evolution!

For over ten years, the Pokemon community asked for an evolution to the popular Normal-type, Dunsparce. In Gen IX’s Scarlet and Violet, those prayers got answers. Dudunsparce joins the new addition this time, but you’ll want to make sure you have one of the best natures before committing to this new ally. Find out how to make the most of this new ally.

Best Natures for Dudunsparce

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

Dudunsparce works best as a physical attacker, and there are two options when crafting the best build for this Pokemon. Those who want to improve the Attack stat on Dudunsparce should put points into the Adamant nature, while those who wish for more Speed are better-served siding with Jolly. Because the Attack stat for Dudunsparce is higher than any other stat, we chose the Jolly nature to up Dudunsparce’s low Speed.

Just as some natures make Dudunsparce more effective in combat, some choices are less than ideal. If your Dudunsparce exhibits one of the natures shown below, we suggest grabbing a new partner or swapping its nature. Players can feed a mint to change a Pokemon’s nature. These items are sold at the Chansey Supply store in Montenevera for $20,000.

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

Dudunsparce should avoid any nature that takes stats away from Attack and Speed. Several natures take points out of these pools, but some are worse than others. Because the Modest and Quiet natures take points out of these pools while boosting Special Attack, they are the worst options on the table. Dudunsparce gets no benefit from these options, and you’ll see a worse performance with each choice.
