Whenever you capture a Pokemon, it gets a nature assigned to it. These natures are then used to differentiate individual Pokemon from one another. They are a little difficult to understand at first, so our Pokemon Let’s Go Nature Chart will take you through each of the natures in the game to help you get a better understanding of the system.

Pokemon Let’s Go Nature Chart

Natures are used to make sure that Pokemon in the game have individual identities, meaning that a Pidgeot that you have might be slightly different from the Pidgeot that your enemy has.

Basically, the system gives each Pokemon a nature that makes it gain 10% in one stat and lose 10% in another stat. This stat can then be used to help your Pokemon become better at what they do best.

The base stat in red is the one that is increased and the one in blue is decreased. You can use this to increase the stat that is already boosted by nature and shun the one that is decreased to have a specialized Pokemon.

In many cases, you might want to catch another version of the Pokemon because the nature of a Pokemon plays against its strengths.

If your Pokemon uses Special Attack and Speed during combat, increasing attack may not be a good idea.

As such, you can go for a Modest or a Timid nature version of that Pokemon and if you manage to find it, then you can have a Pokemon that is stronger than its stats look.

She is unlocked after a while but once you have access to her, you can pay a total of 10000 Pokedollars to get a better fortune for 1 day. Enter the Pokemon medical center and then head to the left side to find her leaned against the wall with her Abra.

She will ask you to water one plant and thin one plant. The plants that you select will determine which nature of Pokemon you get for the next 24 hours.
