Pokemon Scarlet and Violet: Best Natures for Slither Wing

Fight through hordes of foes with this Paradox Pokemon—the prehistoric version of Volcarona.

In Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, players can add several new allies to their team. During your adventures through Paldea, you’ll see a new type of Pokemon. Paradox Pokemon come from the past and future, resembling iconic faces from the franchise. Slither Wing is the prehistoric variant of Volcarona. While it looks like its present-day counterpart, it has unique stats that players need to work around. Find out the best natures for this new ally before you settle on a partner.

Like many other Paradox Pokemon, Slither Wing works well in several roles. You can make an offensive or defensive version of this Bug/Fighting hybrid. Craft the version that fits your style from the options below.

Offensive Build

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

Because Slither Wing works best as a physical attacker, natures that boost its Attack and Speed stats are your best options. The Adamant nature raises the Attack stat at the cost of Special Attack points. Since the Special Attack stat isn’t good for Slither Wing, you won’t miss much when choosing this nature.

Another option for Slither Wing is Jolly, which raises the Speed stat for Pokemon in exchange for Special Attack points. We went with the Jolly nature during our playthrough since the Attack stat is already so high. This way, you’ll be able to outpace enemies and strike first!

Defensive Build

Careful+Special Defense/-Special Attack
Impish+Defense/-Special Attack

Those looking to add more defensive points to their Slither Wing can use Careful or Impish natures as options. Both choices will lower Special Attack, but it’s a fair tradeoff for a bit more survivability with this Bug Pokemon. We recommend putting points into the Special Defense category with the Careful nature, as this stat has a much higher value.

When picking a Slither Wing for your party, you’ll want to avoid several natures. Make sure to steer clear of the options below. If your Slither Wing has any of the choices here, we suggest looking for another or changing your party member’s nature with a mint. Players can buy mints at the Chansey Supply shop in Montenevera for $20,000 each.

Offensive Build

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

Because Slither Wing can’t get much use out of the Special Attack stat, you won’t want a nature that ups that stat. Modest nature gives you a poor boost while taking away from the most crucial stat: Attack. These negatives make it the worst option for Slither Wing.

Though Modest is the worst option, the Quiet nature is a close second. Any nature that lowers the Speed stat is a choice that could make it hard for this Pokemon to compete against other fighters.

Defensive Build

Rash+Special Attack/-Special Defense
Mild+Special Attack/-Defense

When you make a Slither Wing with a focus on Defense, any nature that lowers its two defense stats is a no-go. Stay away from the Rash and Mild natures when seeking an ally in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. Each option boosts the Special Attack stat in exchange for these lower stats. Once you find a nature outside the four poor choices we talk about here, you’re ready to take on all the region can throw at you.
