What Are Natures?
Change The Growth Of Stats
Natures are a Pokemon's unique personality, which affects how their stats develop. Usually, one stat will grow 10% faster, while one stat grows 10% slower.
Multiple Types of Nature
There are a total of 25 different natures! The HP stat is not affected by natures. Even Pokemon of the same species will have different natures!
Pokemon Natures Are Random
The nature of a wild Pokemon you catch is totally random. While the name of the Nature displayed on your Pokemon's stat screen cannot be changed, the boosted and lowered stats can be changed using a Mint!▼Check Out More Info On Mints Below
Allow You To Specialize Your Pokemon
Natures allow you to maximize the potential of your Pokemon by increasing a certain stat. In the above picture, the Pikachu on the left has a neutral nature (no stat changes), while the one on the right has a Timid nature (increases speed but lowers attack). The difference at level 100 for Pikachu is 10 stat points (10%).

Purchased With BP
Mints will be purchasable with BP, which can be earned at the Battle Stadium with Rank Battles. BPs are hard to be farmed, so think well whether to use BPs for Mints.
