PostSubject: Natures and Characteristics   Sun Jan 20, 2008 4:49 pm

Natures are the traits that factor how much a Pokémon will grow in a specifc stat. Characteristics are like the "personality" of your Pokémon that determine some of the IVs your Pokémon might have. They both are very important in signaling how strong your Pokémon is in a specifc stat.

Firstly, characteristics. This phrase can give you a little hint in what a specific IV is in one of your strongest stats. If you do an IV check and one comes at 30-31, you can use the characteristic phrase to find out what that IV is.

Characteristics

1 6 11 16 21 26 31 Capable Of Taking Hits
2 7 12 17 22 27 Highly Persistent
3 8 13 18 23 28 Good Endurance
4 9 14 19 24 29 Good Perseverance


Special Attack (Sp.Atk)
0 5 10 15 20 25 30 Highly Curious
1 6 11 16 21 26 31 Mischievous
2 7 12 17 22 27 Thoroughly Cunning
3 8 13 18 23 28 Often Lost In Thought
4 9 14 19 24 29 Very Finicky


Special Defense (Sp.Def)
0 5 10 15 20 25 30 Strong Willed
1 6 11 16 21 26 31 Somewhat Vain
2 7 12 17 22 27 Strongly Defiant
3 8 13 18 23 28 Hates To Lose
4 9 14 19 24 29 Somewhat Stubborn


Speed (Spd)
0 5 10 15 20 25 30 Likes To Run
1 6 11 16 21 26 31 Alert To Sounds
2 7 12 17 22 27 Impetuous And Silly
3 8 13 18 23 28 Somewhat Of A Clown
4 9 14 19 24 29 Quick To Flee


If a Pokémon does not have at least one of these characteristics, it does not have ANY perfect stats. These messages mean specifically:

1. That stat is either the Pokémon’s highest IV, or tied for it.
2. The IV ends in a 1 or 6.

Attack = "Likes to thrash about"
Defense = "Capable of taking hits"
Special Attack = "Mischievous"
Special Defense = "Somewhat vain"
Speed = "Alert to sounds"
HP = "Often dozes off"

Some Pokémon that have these don't have the perfect stat, but these messages mean they might! So get any Pokémon that have these IV tested.


Natures are definitely more important than characteristics. Natures can make your Pokémon very strong or even bring them down. If the stat has a plus + next to it, that means that stat will increase 10% more then the other stats. If the stat has a minus - next to it, that stat will increase 10% slower than the other stats. Neutral = means all stats are not affected and remain at average development. So, it just goes to show the natures can make or break you.
