The best nature for Hydrapple in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet


    The Pokémon Scarlet & Violet DLC brought with it a bunch of interesting new evolutions, like Archaludon and Sinistcha. If you’re looking to add Dipplin’s newest evolution to your team, Hydrapple, you’ll need to equip it with the most optimized nature and take advantage of its full potential.

    What are the best natures for Hydrapple in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet The Indigo Disk?

    The best natures for Hydrapple in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet are as follows:

    • Calm (+Esp. Defense, -Attack)
    • Bold (+Defense, -Attack)

    Hydrapple is one of the slower Pokémon in the Blueberry Pokédex, so if you want to make sure it survives most competitive battles, you’ll want to top it up. The best way to do this is to increase your Defense or Sp. Defense. I would build mine Bold, just because Hydrapple’s defense is already high, and pit it against physical attackers like Salamence. But Calm gives you a more balanced overall defense.

    How to choose the best nature in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

    Nature doesn’t matter much unless you’re going to play PvP… or harder competitive battles like Blueberry Academy. Nature dictates which stat gets a 10% increase in growth rate and which gets a 10% decrease in return. There are also natures that do not boost or stunt any stats, such as Hardy and Docile.
