In Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, you’ll find friends from all generations of the popular monster-catching franchise. Those looking for a great Dragon-type would do well to choose Hydreigon, the Gen V pseudo-legendary. If you want an even better version of this partner, you’ll need the best natures for this Pokemon, which we’ve gathered, so you don’t have to.
Best Natures for Hydreigon
Hydreigon’s strength lies in its Special Attack options. This three-headed dragon is a powerful physical attacker, though its stats are well-rounded overall. If you want to get the most out of this pseudo-legendary, we recommend the Timid and Modest natures. Timid natures boost Speed, and since Hydreigon already has such a solid Special Attack, it’s worth rounding out this lower stat for a more balanced partner. However, those who want to boost Special Attack would do well to select Modest. Each of these options lowers Attack, but because that stat is less critical for Hydreigon, it’s okay to ignore it.

Worst Natures for Hydreigon
While getting a Pokemon with the best nature is excellent, it’s also time-consuming. Those who don’t want to grind out the best natures can instead avoid the worst options, which we’ve listed below.
As a Special Attacker with an emphasis on Speed, you want to avoid natures that can lower these two key stats. The two natures that give up your main stats while employing Attack, a stat Hydreigon won’t need, are Brave and Adamant. The Brave nature ups Attack at the cost of Speed, while Adamant lowers Special Attack. Because both natures are crucial to your partner’s power in battle, we suggest staying away from each of the above options. Once you have a nature outside the two above, you’re ready to head into Paldea and take the region by storm.
