Pokemon Scarlet and Violet introduced new creatures for players to collect and battle. One of the new allies on the champion’s team, Glimmora, is a Rock/Poison hybrid that works as a setup fighter. Thanks to its unique ability, Glimmora can drop poison spikes whenever it gets hit. On top of this ability, it’s a comment fighter, provided you equip the best natures available. Find out how to make the most of this Gen IX addition before you commit to a partner Pokemon.

Best Natures for Glimmora
Thanks to solid stats, players can cater their Glimmora to several playstyles. Glimmora has an offensive option and one geared towards a balanced battle method. Check your choices below and see what natures appeal to each build.
As a Special Attack Pokemon, Glimmora works best when players focus on improving its Special Attack and Speed stats. To get more out of Glimmora’s Special Attack stat, the Modest nature offers the best rewards. On the other hand, the Timid nature improves the Speed stat. Both options take power away from the Attack stat, but this is the worst stat in Glimmora’s pool, so it shouldn’t use physical attacks anyway.
To better balance your Glimmora and give it a bit of survivability, you can put points into its Defense stat. Since this Pokemon has substantial Defense, it wouldn’t hurt to focus on the Bold nature, as it improves Defense at the cost of Attack. The Special Attack for Glimmora is far higher than Defense, so it’ll still hold its own in a fight, even with this nature.
Worst Natures for Glimmora
Despite a few options aiding Glimmora on the battlefield, not all natures are great for this fighter. Some of the natures in the pool will make this Pokemon worse, so take note of which ones are the worst. If your partner has any of the choices below, you can swap it out or buy a mint to change its nature. You can purchase mints at the Chansey Supply shop in Montenevera, but they cost $20,000 each.
Because Glimmora has such a poor Attack stat, you won’t want any nature that gives it a boon. This is especially true for those natures that take away from its Special Attack and Speed. Adamant and Brave are the worst of the bunch since they take from these stats, giving a boost that won’t help much.
Those building around balance would do well to avoid natures that take stats away from Defense and Special Defense. The worst options are Lonely and Naughty, which boost the Attack stat in exchange for these harmful changes. Opting for these natures can cause your partner to fall far faster in a fight.
