well ,i always spent hours of searching for Pokemon with the appropriate nature...e.g ,an adamant nature salamance or something.But is the nature that really matters to a Pokemon or
the IVs and EVs or all together...since now I'm trying all of them to be perfect to Pokemon ,because these make them really strong and special!

Umm,yeah,It is true.If you really want your Pokemon to excell in one particular stat,it is important for it to have the right nature.For example,if you want to have a Pokemon which has high attack stat,(Take dragonite as example),you need to have Adament as its nature.That is the appropriate nature for dragonite which gives a boost in its attack stat and it will be a monster.

For more details,look here.

Natures make a difference but there are other factors, too. Namely IVs and EVs. At level 100, here is how much difference they make to the stats:

  • EVs = up to 63 points in a stat
  • IVs = up to 32 points in a stat
  • Natures = 10% of the final stat, anywhere around 20-35 points

Note this means that the difference between having a positive nature for a stat and a negative one can be as much as 70 points. So yes natures can make a big difference.
