Pokemon Scarlet and Violet: Best Natures for Tyranitar

Make this pseudo-legendary Pokemon an apex predator in Paldea.

With Pokemon Scarlet and Violet launching, fan favorites like Larvitar, Pupitar, and Tyranitar join trainers in the Paldea region. If you want to add this pseudo legendary to your team, it helps to know what natures work best for this Rock/Dark type Pokemon. Natures determine a Pokemon’s stat boosts, making them an important aspect when finding these collectible creatures. Make sure your partner is the best it can be by grabbing one of the best natures in the game.

As a physical attacker, Tyranitar works best when using a nature that boosts its Attack stat. The best nature to use for Tyranitar is Adamant, as it boosts Attack and lowers Special Attack, a stat that this Pokemon won’t need. If you’d like to boost your partner’s Speed instead, a Jolly nature is a solid second option. As its lowest stat, Speed could always use a boost on Tyranitar. Because Jolly sacrifices Special Attack for this Speed upgrade, it’s a fair swap.

Worst Natures for Tyranitar

While the natures above are the best options for Tyranitar, you don’t need the best nature if you’re not aiming to play competitively. If you’re trying to avoid the worst natures with this Pokemon, you should keep your eyes on the following options in your search. These natures will make your Tyranitar far weaker than it should be.

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

As mentioned earlier, any natures that boost Special Attack are less than ideal for Tyranitar. The Modest nature increases Special Attack while lowering Attack, which is the last thing you want with this Pokemon. The Quiet nature, on the other hand, reduces Speed for Special Attack, and it’s one more combination you’ll want to stay away from. Once you have a partner without the worst nature, you can start training your Pokemon to be the best in the region. We wish you luck in Paldea!
