Best Quaquaval Nature & Tinkaton Weakness in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet

Natures are a Generation 3 mechanic that affect how a Pokémon’s stats grow. You can change the stat value of a specific Pokémon to fit your team strategy by using a rare item called Mints. This guide will concentrate on Quaquaval, a Water/Fighting type Pokémon introduced in Generation 9, and what nature is best for it in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.

Quaquaval’s signature move is Aqua Step, which can increase its Speed after each use. If you unlock Quaquaval’s Moxie hidden ability at the end of the game, it will be able to increase its Speed by one level per turn. Meanwhile, Quaquaval’s stat distribution is as follows:

  • HP: 85
  • Attack: 120
  • Defense: 80
  • Special Attack: 85
  • Special Defense: 75
  • Speed: 85

Adamant and Jolly are the best Natures to make the most of Quaquaval’s incredible Base Attack of 120. However, given Quaquaval’s Aqua Step and Moxie ability, any Nature that improves its Attack would be a better choice than Jolly.

Tinkaton Weakness in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet

As a Fairy and Steel-type Pokemon, Tinkaton is have weakness to moves of the Ground and Fire types. Poison and Dragon attacks will not harm it, and it is resistant to Bug, Dark, Fairy-type, Flying, Grass, Ice, Normal, Psychic and Rock assaults.

While any Ground and Fire-type moves will suffice to defeat Tinkaton, you should concentrate on Physical Attack moves if you have them. Tinkaton has higher Special Defense, which means you’ll have a lot more success with Physical Attacks.

You should avoid bringing Dark, Dragon, Fighting, Fairy, Ice, and Rock into battle with Tinkaton. They all have at least one weakness to Tinkaton’s attacks. Tinkaton also has Dark moves, so be cautious of Ghost and Psychic Pokemon.
