The big bear returns this time, but making the most of this ally involves getting the best natures possible. Find out which stats to keep an eye out for on your adventure!

As a physical attacker with outrageous power, Ursaring is an excellent offensive partner. Because its Attack stat is so high, the focus this time is Speed. Ursaring is a slow Pokemon, and giving it a bit of extra Speed with the Jolly nature should help balance out its lopsided stats. You’ll need to sacrifice some Special Attack points here, but Ursaring won’t need those to control the battlefield. If you’d rather bolster Ursaring’s incredible Attack stat even more, you could instead choose the Adamant nature, which raises Attack at the expense of Special Attack.

Suppose you’re not interested in hunting down a Teddiursa or Ursaring with the best nature possible. In that case, it’s okay to settle on another nature, provided it doesn’t fall into the following category. Below you’ll find the worst natures for Ursaring. If your partner has one of these natures, you should head back out and find a new one for your team.

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

The Special Attack stat isn’t very useful for Ursaring, so getting a nature that improves that stat isn’t a good fit for this fighter. Both the Quiet and Modest natures focus on this stat. The Quiet nature lowers Speed, which makes this sluggish Pokemon even slower, and the Modest nature, on the other hand, lowers Attack.
