If Gardevoir is one of your ideal team members, you’ll want the best version of the Embrace Pokemon. What nature your partner has changes what stats get boosts. Finding the best natures for Gardevoir can strengthen your ally, so ensure you get the best partner possible with our suggestions.

Best Natures for Gardevoir

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

Because Gardevoir is a strong Special Attacker with decent Speed, we recommend buffing its Speed using the Timid nature. Grabbing this nature lowers the Attack stat, but it’s one that your partner Pokemon doesn’t need. While we recommend the Timid nature, the Modest nature boosts the already impressive Special Attack stat, lowering Gardevoir’s Attack. Each of these natures is a viable option, with the choice coming down to preference.

Worst Natures for Gardevoir

If grabbing the best nature isn’t worth the grind for you, there are plenty of other options in the Paldea region. However, you should avoid two natures at all costs when grabbing Gardevoir. Check the worst natures for this Psychic-type Pokemon below.

NatureEffects
Adamant+Attack/-Special Attack
Brave+Attack/-Speed

While Adamant and Brave natures work for some Pokemon, they’re terrible choices for Gardevoir. The Adamant nature boosts the Attack stat while lowering Special Attack power, and it’s a wrong choice because of Gardevoir’s need for Special Attack stats. Another nature worth avoiding is Brave. While Brave also raises the Attack power of its Pokemon, it also lowers its Speed. Gardevoir has middling Speed and needs all the help it can get for a chance at attacking first. If you have a Gardevoir that shirks the worst natures, you’re ready for a trip through Paldea!
