Pokemon Scarlet and Violet: Best Natures for Ogerpon

Mask on.

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet‘s first expansion, The Teal Mask, introduces several new Pokemon for trainers to catch and train. One of the standout additions is Ogerpon, a new legendary Pokemon with various forms that change its type. If you want to make the most of this powerful ally, you’ll want to know the best natures to pair with it. Find out what brings out the best in this masked monster.

Best Natures for Ogerpon

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

Ogerpon’s Attack is its most potent stat, meaning those looking to get a leg up on the competition should put points in that stat or its second-best option, Speed.

To add points to the Attack stat. It will detract from the Special Attack stat, but because Ogerpon doesn’t use Special Attacks, it won’t make much of a difference.

The Jolly nature adds points to the Speed stat while taking points from the Special Attack stat. As we said with Adamant, this isn’t a cause for concern. We went with this stat to make our Ogerpon a bit more versatile.

Worst Natures for Ogerpon

Just as there are natures that can boost the stats of Ogerpon for the better, there are options that will make it worse. If you find your Ogerpon has either option below, we suggest changing its nature with a mint. Mints are a consumable item you can feed any Pokemon in the game. If you want to buy one for $20,000 Poke Dollars, head to the Chansey Supply Store. They’re located in the following cities:

  • Cascarrafa
  • Levincia
  • Mesagoza
  • Montenevera
NatureEffects
Modest+Special Attack/-Attack
Quiet+Special Attack/-Speed

Because the Special Attack stat is Ogerpon’s worst, you won’t want a nature that feeds into this option. This is especially true if that nature lowers a key stat like Attack or Speed. The Modest nature takes points from the Attack stat, while the Quiet nature reduces Speed. These natures also boost Special Attack, making them the worst option for this Pokemon.
