Sorry for another nature problem question! xD I have a fine HA corpish with dragon dance and aqua jet. It's nature is...JOLLY! Is jolly fine on it or should switch for an adamant one?

A Jolly nature is fine for Corphish, as long as you're running a Dragon Dance set and some Speed investment. If you are not, though, and are just using Dragon Dance for the Attack boost, I would highly suggest Swords Dance and and Adamant nature.

Jolly is good if you want to run a Sash/Dragon Dance set, where Crawdaunt takes more a of a sweeper initiative. However, most variants of Crawdaunt are in fact wallbreakers, whose primary function is to slap down the opponent's bulky Pokemon, and tear holes in their defenses.

One good thing about Jolly Crawdaunts though; you get to jump Pokemon upto 90 base speed uninvested Pokemon. This includes all Rotom formes, Excadrill, Landorus - T (which don't invest, i.e the bulkier variants).

Here's a set for Jolly Crawdaunt anyways:

Crawdaunt @ Focus Sash
Ability: Adaptability
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spe / 4 Def
Jolly Nature
- Swords Dance
- Aqua Jet
- Knock Off
- Waterfall

Hope I helped!

Thanks! The previous answer was earlier though, thank you anyway.
