How do Natures work?

In at least some Pokemon games there are modifiers called “Natures” which affect pokemon stats. What do they do and how do it work? Also, what specific games possess it?

  • Does Magikarp's Splash move really never deal any damage?
  • What is the correct formula for Timer Balls?
  • How can you increase the shiny rate?
  • Why can't you just pick up your balls?
  • Why use the move detect/protect?
  • What is the 'love' requirement to evolve Riolu, and how can I quickly increase it?
  • How do I catch a “shiny” Pokemon
  • How do pokemon stats relate to attack power?
  • Is it possible to get a shiny legendary? If so, when is it decided?
  • Is it really possible to “catch 'em all”?
  • Is it possible to trade Pokemon from the 1st generation games to the most recent ones?
  • What is the correct formula for Timer Balls?

    Natures can affect Attack, Special Attack, Defense, Special Defense, and Speed. Each nature raises one by 10% and lowers another by 10%, except for 5 “neutral natures” which leave a Pokémon’s stats unchanged (or may be thought of as raising and lowering the same stat). All combinations of stats raised and lowered exist, for 20 different stat-affecting natures, and a total of 25 natures overall.

    In Black and White, on the status screen’s second page, on the top screen, the raised stat’s name will be written in Red and the lowered stat’s name will be written in Blue, though the coloration is subtle. Other games likely also have such clues.

    Additionally, a nature determines what flavors a Pokémon likes the most when it comes to Berries, Poffins, Pokéblocks, and Apricorn drinks. Each flavor is tied to a stat, with a Pokémon liking its raised stat’s flavor, and disliking the flavor of its lowest stat. Those with “neutral natures” have no particular likes or dislikes. The stat associations are:

    • Attack – Spicy
    • Defense – Sour
    • Special Attack – Dry
    • Special Defense – Bitter
    • Speed – Sweet

    Finally, a nature determines whether a Pokémon is more likely to use offensive, defensive, or supportive moves in Generation III’s Battle Palace or the Battle Tent area with the same rules.
