Any chance someone could include the flavours of PokéBlocks that each nature favours? It's hell trying to figure that out... ~~Ketsuban

I just want to know how to make a graph so I can make a TM chart.LedianX 17:46, 26 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Generation IV Natures

I'm deleting the two natures "Friovolous" and "Meticulous"; there has been no word on these two new presumed natures since August 2006 at the latest, and all of the current major Pokémon sites have either not mentioned or denied these two natures' existence. - Ultraflame

I'll delete the generation column because it has no relevance, as no new natures were introduced. - Chosen


Could someone add how Natures affect Purification?

Mostly rewording for clarity...

I reworded and expanded the pre-table description. There wasn't anything particularly horrible about what was there before, but it's more descriptive and more soundly worded now, imo.


I want to learn why is it "naïve" and not "naive" in this article. --Johans 01:38, 21 December 2008 (UTC)


Do natures affect the breeding compatability in the daycare? (ie how much they like each other) Sidnoea 17:15, 22 June 2009 (UTC)

No. Egg groups, species and OT are the only things that affect breeding. Why? Luna Tiger * the Arc Toraph 17:23, 22 June 2009 (UTC)


what about the other stat influencing thing? you know "Proud of its Power" "Likes to run" all that stuff we need that on here too Happizelpom 20:42, 27 June 2009 (UTC)

That's on a separate page...--PsychicRider 20:48, 27 June 2009 (UTC)

Conflicting Nature and Characteristic

I have a Pokémon with a Rash Nature (+Sp Atk, -Sp Def) and "Somewhat Stubborn" Characteristic (+Sp Def). How will this affect the growth of its Sp. Def? --Arima 05:48, 20 November 2009 (UTC)

The characteristic doesn't affect the stats like nature does, it just means that it's highest IV is in the Special Defense stat, and so it isn't really +Sp. Def. Werdnae (talk) 06:37, 20 November 2009 (UTC)

Typo (I think)

is it just me or does it say dv instead of iv on the article look at this: Note that despite these relationships to a Pokémon's development, natures do not affect experience or DVs.) see what I mean? (The snargret guy 17:52, 23 January 2010 (UTC))

IVs can also be considered DVs for determinant values. but everyone calls them IVs so, i changed it to that. -- MAGNEDETH 18:05, 23 January 2010 (UTC)

thanks (The snargret guy 23:47, 25 January 2010 (UTC))


In HG/SS/Pt you can tell what effect the nature has on a Pokemon by looking at its stats. The increasing stat faintly glows red while the decreasing stat faintly glows blue. Can I add this to the article? ~♪ Zaveno (Talk) 20:15, 6 May 2010 (UTC)

From the second paragraph:
In HeartGold and SoulSilver the stats increased and decreased by a Pokémon's nature are outlined in red and blue respectively when viewing that Pokémon's Summary Screen.
It's already there. Werdnae (talk) 22:16, 6 May 2010 (UTC)


Shouldn't we add how Natures effect a Pokémon's Performance? I'll make the table if I have 00:14, 1 June 2010 (UTC)
