Question about Natures and Personality?

0 votes

I just caught a Riolu in Y and it has a Impish Nature, lowering it's Sp. Attack but raising it's Defense. But my riolu also has a Highly Curious personality. So will the nature lowering the special attack growth and the personality raising the special attack growth just cancel each other out? Thanks

A nature lowers a stat by 10%.
A characteristic (it's not called personality) simply indicates what the highest stat of your Pokemon is.

There's no cancelling out; your Riolu's sp. atk will still be 10% lower than what it would be without the Impish nature.
