Best Natures for Tatsugiri

As a Special Attacker, Tatsugiri is best suited for a nature that boosts that stat or its Speed. Each of these natures will take points away from the Attack stat, but that won’t make much of a difference since Tatsugiri can’t use the Attack stat anyway. The Modest nature will boost the Special Attack for this ally, while the Timid nature aids the Speed stat. Because The Special Attack stat is already so high for Tatsugiri, we went with the Timid nature to better round out its stats.

While some natures will make your Tatsugiri more powerful, other options can do the opposite. While you build your ally, we suggest steering clear of the following options when aiming to develop the optimal Mimicry Pokemon.

Adamant+Attack/-Special Attack
Brave+Attack/-Speed
Naughty+Attack/-Special Defense

The Attack stat is the lowest in Tatsugiri’s pool, so any nature that boosts that stat is a poor choice. When seeking out a build, you don’t want any nature that focuses on the Attack stat, and any option that lowers Special Attack, Speed, and Special Defense is sure to make the worst version of this fighter. The worst options for Tatsugiri are the Adamant, Brave, and Naughty natures, as they all remove points from these vital stats.
