How do natures affect the Pokeathlon?

4 votes

I've been reading some stuff about the Pokeathlon and apparently a pokemon's nature affects its stats in the Pokeathlon.

I can't find info on how this works though. Any help?

I have almost no idea about things related to the Pokeathlon. I won't be able to answer this.

Pokemaster, I did some looking around. Here's how it works:

Atk = Power
Def = Stamina
Spe = Speed
SpA = Jump
SpD = Skill

A nature that benefits attack for example will benefit power in the pokeathlon. And a nature that hinders defense will lower stamina. So that being said, take the nature "modest". it benefits Sp attack and lowers Attack. So your pokemon will have higher jumping, but lower power.
