Combat is an important aspect of all Pokemon games, and that’s no different in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. Players must choose a good team of Pokémon to accompany them in battle, and it is important to do everything possible to gain an advantage over your opponents. One of the things that fans can do is make sure they have a Pokémon with a good Nature. Natures can have a pretty strong impact on a Pokemon’s stats, so finding the right one is a big deal for competitive play and late-game battles. These are some of the best Natures for bagon, ShelgonY salamence in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.
What is the best Nature for Bagon, Shelgon, and Salamence in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet?
salamence and its previous forms are strong Dragon- and Flying-type Pokemon that have amazing stats similar to other pseudo-legendaries, like Tyranitar. Some of the best Natures for these monsters include:
- Sign (+Attack, -Special Attack)
- Mischievous (+Attack, -Special Defense)
Most of Salamence’s attacks are Physical Attack moves, so it would be a good idea to pick Sign and trades part of its Special Attack for the more useful Physical Attack stat. Alternatively, players could stick with Mischievous and sacrifice some of his Special Defense to further strengthen his Attack.

How to choose the best Nature in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet
There are a few factors that would be good to consider before sticking to a specific nature. Players must first look over a Pokémon basic stats and determine which ones could be improved. After that, they need to double check that the Nature they plan to pick makes sense when compared to their move pool.
The chosen Nature should fit well with the moves available to that Pokémon. If the vast majority of his moves are physical attacks, then it would be a horrible idea to beef up his special attack stat. For those who would like to check out the full list of Natures, please continue reading below.
