Can a Timid Nature be run on Goodra?

0 votes

I found a 31/x/x/31/31/x Outstanding potential Sap Sipper Goomy randomly and I want to train it up to a Goodra. It came with a Timid Nature, And I want to know if it is viable on Goodra and if I should breed for a better Nature. What set should it run?

To be honest, Timid is probably the least workable nature Goodra can get, except maybe Jolly. However, the key word is workable. A timid Goodra has the potential to catch opponents of guard by running a Choice Scarf set, and it is especially surprising because most Goodra don't run any speed investment at all.

Goodra @ Choice Scarf
Ability: Sap Sipper
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Sp Atk / 252 Spd
Timid Nature
- Draco Meteor
- Fire Blast/Flamethrower
- Sludge Wave
- Focus Blast/Thunderbolt

This set is rather unconventional, especially as your Goodra, lacks a maximum speed IV, so you may want to breed for another nature, and try to also obtain maximum defense, but this set still can work if used right.
