Best Natures for Klawf
Klawf exhibits two stats far higher than any other: Defense and Attack. You’ll want to build your stats around this Rock Pokemon’s strengths. You have three options when building Klawf’s stats.
If you want to increase the Defense stat further, the Impish nature will do so in exchange for Special Attack points. Because Special Attack is the worst option in the Klawf pool, you won’t need those points.
Those who want to improve Attack and get a more balanced build can choose the Adamant nature. Klawf’s Attack stat will never outdo its Defense, but the added points will give it more oppressive offensive power.
Lastly, you can choose Jolly nature to give your partner a boon for its Speed stat. Despite its size, Klawf has decent Speed, and the Jolly nature can help it outpace a fair amount of other Pokemon. This bonus is excellent, especially when trading the useless Special Attack stat.
Worst Natures for Klawf
While not all Klawfs have the best nature, most can make strong allies. Some, however, are poor partners entirely. If you see a Klawf with the following characters, you’re better off looking for another Pokemon.
Because the Special Attack stat is so useless for Klawf, any nature that improves it wastes trainer time. Three natures, in particular, take away from vital Klawf stats on top of boosting Special Attack. Mild takes away from Klawf’s precious Defense, Modest lowers the Attack stat, and Quiet removes some Speed. Because these natures offer no boon for this Pokemon, it’s worth putting any Klawf with them in a PC box.
