Competitively speaking its best to not try to balance out stats but to enhance those that are good. The best option is often to decrease the attacking stat you won't use and increase what you need the most. It depends also on the moveset however. Infernape can use both Adamant, Jolly, Modest and Timid since it can run both physical and special sets.
In the case of Dragalge, Calm is the best to allow it to take more special hits at the cost of its Attack which it shouldn't need or use anyway.
As with Groudon it depends a lot on the set you are running. Adamant is preferred for a offensive variant, Impish for a defensive.
For Aegislash the case is the same. Physical variants are the most common and prefer Adamant, but it can still use Modest thanks to its good Spatk. However you need to plan your moves and sets accordingly in this case.

In my opinion, a Naive nature for Dragalge, so it takes down his down his sp defense, and boosts his speed (As it is the lowest)
For Groudon, I'd say a Timid or Calm nature to bring down his attack and boost his speed or his sp defense.
And for Aegislash, you would have to choose. I would recommend something to take down his sp attack because most of his moves are physical (I think :/ )

I hope this helps, these are just my opinions :D
