    ・Nature itself does not change.
    Purchased at Chansey Supply for 20,000 Pokedollars

    With Modest Mint, you can turn it into Modest with some Nature correction. If you don't have it, go to Chansey Supply in Mesagoza or other places and buy one for 20,000 Poke Dollars. However, there is no need to use Mints if the original Nature is Adamant.

  7. Change Effort Value

    Unrivaled Pikachu's Thunder and Surf is ineffective, to decrease the damage of Play Rough and Iron Tail, you will want to add 252 to DEF. And to increase firepower, you will want to add 252 to ATK.

    If You Have Money Use Vitamins To Increase Effort Value

    HPHealth FeatherHealth Feather ×6
    ATKProtein IconProtein ×26
    DEFIron IconIron ×26

    The fastest way is to use the above Vitamins to change its value if you can afford it. But since 1 costs 10,000 Pokedollars and you need 26 pieces for each stats, that is a total of 500,000 Poke Dollars is required.
