Nature Power becomes a different move depending on the environment that the battle is being conducted in.
Prior to Generation VI, Nature Power targets the user rather than any specific Pokémon. Therefore, in Double and Triple Battles, because of the inability to select a target, the chosen move always hit the opponent directly opposite the user. If the opponent directly opposite the user had fainted, the move will randomly target one of the other opponents. If in a terrain that calls a move that affects multiple Pokémon, it will target the Pokémon usually targeted by that move.
In Generation VI, Nature Power now targets an adjacent Pokémon rather than the user (even if the move it would turn into affects multiple Pokémon). This allows single-target moves called by Nature Power to target an ally, which was not previously possible.
