Heading into a new generation of Pokemon means assembling a new team of allies. While there are plenty of fresh faces at the start of every generation, some friends return, including Flapple. If you want to add this adorable apple Pokemon to your team, make sure you’ve got the best natures on the market before heading into battle. Get all the info you need on this Grass/Dragon hybrid here on Press SPACE to Jump.
Best Natures for Flapple
As a physical attacker, Flapple needs a nature that hones in on its Attack stat. Because of this, we recommend grabbing a Flapple with the Adamant nature, which boosts Attack and lowers the Special Attack stat, which your partner won’t use anyway. If you want to upgrade your partner’s Speed stat instead, the Jolly nature is a strong alternative, as it also lowers Special Attack. Which nature you choose depends on your playstyle, so go with your gut on this choice.
Worst Natures for Flapple
While getting the best nature is great, it takes time to farm for an ally with the exact stats you want. Those who’d rather get going on their adventure ASAP can forgo getting the best natures but should take care to avoid the following natures in their hunt.
Both the Calm and Careful natures are detrimental to Flapple. The Calm nature boosts Special Defense, its worst stat, while lowering Attack. Because Flapple needs its Attack stat to make an impact in battle, we suggest steering clear of this nature. The Sassy nature improves Special Defense at the cost of Speed. Because Flapple needs Speed to compete, we suggest avoiding Sassy natures entirely.
Once you have a nature you’re comfortable with, you’re ready to head out into the Paldea region! Go get ’em trainer!
