Are you looking for a powerful Fairy-type Pokemon to add to your team in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet? Slyveon is an excellent choice! Before you head out and explore the Paldea region with your new partner, however, we suggest finding an Eevee or Sylveon with the best natures possible. Once you optimize your partner, you’ll be the best trainer around!
Best Natures for Slyveon
As a Special Attack specialist, Slyveon must focus on upping that stat. The Modest nature is an excellent option for the Intertwining Pokemon, bettering its Special Attack in exchange for a weaker physical Attack.
If you’d rather improve Slyveon’s Speed stat for a more rounded partner, the Timid nature can do that for you. Timid nature will lower Sylveon’s Attack stat, but it won’t make a difference for this evolution, which goes for both of these natures.

Worst Natures for Slyveon
Even if you don’t plan on getting the best version of Sylveon for your team in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, you should avoid the following options. Any Sylveon with these natures is sure to perform poorly compared to an optimized variant.
Because Sylveon is a Special Attacker, the Adamant and Brave natures are poor choices. Each option ups the Attack stat, which Slyveon won’t need. On top of this, these natures lower either Special Attack or Speed stats. If you find yourself with an Eevee paired with the above natures, we suggest evolving it into another form, like Flareon. Thanks to its large evolution pool, you have plenty of options for Eevee.
