Best Palafin Nature

The Best Nature for Palafin in Pokemon is either Jolly or Adamant. Jolly is likely the preferred option, as Palafin has a high Speed stat and low Special Attack. It is unlikely that you will be using any Special Attack moves, which makes it an unnecessary stat. With a bit more Speed, you can possibly get the first attack against your opponent.

Here’s a look at Palafin’s Base Stats:

  • HP: 100
  • Attack: 70
  • Defense: 72
  • Sp. Atk: 53
  • Sp. Def: 62
  • Speed: 100

Here’s a look at Hero Palafin’s Base Stats:

  • HP: 100
  • Attack: 160
  • Defense: 97
  • Sp. Atk: 106
  • Sp. Def: 87
  • Speed: 100

Adamant on the other hand will give you increased Attack, which is pretty high on Palafin and its Hero version. In either case, you want to take the nature that will decrease Special Attack, because that is going to go unused the majority of the time you are using this Pokemon.

If you’re curious what each nature does in the game, here’s list of them:

  • Adamant – Raises ATTACK, lowers SPECIAL ATTACK
  • Bashful – Neutral
  • Bold – Raises DEFENSE, lowers ATTACK
  • Brave – Raises ATTACK, lowers SPEED
  • Calm – Raises SPECIAL DEFENSE, lowers ATTACK
  • Careful – Raises SPECIAL DEFENSE, lowers SPECIAL ATTACK
