With Pokemon Scarlet and Violet launching for the Nintendo Switch, trainers can explore Gen IX with their chosen team. While there a plenty of new Pokemon you can add to your team, some series favorites return. If you want to add Eevee, the evolution Pokemon, to your team, getting the best natures is a surefire way to stand among the best trainers of the Paldea region. Check out the best options for Eevee before you settle on a partner.
Best Natures for Eevee
If you don’t want to evolve your Eevee, there are several natures you’ll want to use to get the most out of this popular Pokemon. The Jolly nature is your best bet to get an Eevee with a good Speed stat. As one of its best stats, Speed helps Eevee outpace its competition. Jolly nature lowers Special Attack, but it’s one of Eevee’s least important stats. To up Eevee’s Attack, Adamant is a solid option. Like Jolly Nature, you’ll lower Special Attack, but it’s a fair trade for more offensive power.

Worst Natures for Eevee
Though there are natures that make Eevee more powerful, there are also some that weaken its effectiveness. Make sure to steer clear of the following natures when choosing your partner in Scarlet and Violet.
Because Eevee needs its Attack stat to compete in a fight, any nature that lowers that stat is a no-go. These natures reduce Attack and boost a stat that Eevee can’t use in its battles. The Modest nature improves Special Attack, but that’s not important for Eevee. The Calm nature, on the other hand, improves Special Defense, Eevee’s worst stat. It isn’t a fair tradeoff, so don’t stick with an Eevee using those stat boosts.
