Natures (Japanese: せいかく Personality) are a Pokémon's personality and effect their Stats as it levels up. Specifically, all but five Natures can affect two stats, increasing one by 10% and decreasing another by 10%. Additionally, all Natures affect what kind of flavor the Pokémon will like as well, with the exception of Neutral Natures. Natures have the potential to affect any stat except for HP. In total, there are 25 different kinds of Natures that all Pokémon are capable of having.

As of Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver and present in every game afterward, while viewing a Pokémon's stats, the name of any stat affected by the Pokémon's Nature will have a very subtle red or blue shade; it has a very subtle red shade if the Nature raises that stat by 10%, while it has a very subtle blue shade if the Nature lowers that stat by 10%. This serves as an effective way to determine how a Pokémon's Nature affects its stats without having to refer to a table or guide.
