Pokemon Scarlet and Violet: Best Natures for Luxray

Get this Gen IV favorite for your team in Paldea!

With Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, trainers can travel the Paldea region. During this adventure, you’ll find friends from other generations like Luxray. If you want to add the Gleam Eyes Pokemon to your team, it helps to optimize its stats. Getting the best natures for your allies is the best way to gather powerful partner Pokemon, but what natures work best for Luxray? Find out here.

Best Natures for Luxray

Jolly+Speed/-Special Attack
Adamant+Attack/-Special Attack

There are two natures you’ll want if you’re aiming for an apex Luxray. Because Luxray has an incredible Attack stat to start, we recommend the Jolly nature boost its Speed instead. The Jolly nature lowers Special Attack, but Luxray won’t need this stat for battle as a physical attacker. The Adamant nature is an excellent alternative if you want to boost Luxray’s already impressive Attack stat instead. Like the Jolly nature, Adamant lowers the Special Attack stat, which isn’t a big deal for a partner like Luxray. Grab either of these natures, and you’re sure to shake things up in the Paldea region.

Worst Natures for Luxray

While finding the best natures for Luxray is excellent for trainers willing to grind out a search for these allies, it can be a pain for those who want to grab a Pokemon and go. We recommend avoiding the following natures if you’d instead get a Luxray ASAP.

NatureEffects
Quiet+Special Attack/-Speed
Modest+Special Attack/-Attack

Because Luxray depends on both the Attack and Speed stats, natures like Quiet and Modest are the worst natures you can get. The Quiet nature raises Special Attack at the cost of the Speed stat, making it a dangerous choice for any trainer trying to attack first in battle. Alternatively, the Modest nature improves Special Attacks at the cost of Attack power, lowering Luxray’s most impressive stat. Because of these negatives, we can’t suggest either of these natures for trainers looking to play the game casually or competitively. Once you get a nature outside the worst options, you’re ready to take on Paldea!
