Making Pokemon for the battle tree, so I'm building a Mega Salamence for the battle Tree. So whats a good nature?

Get one with adamant nature and either return or frustration.
If your Salamence has max happiness teach it Return. If it doesn't have max happiness (if it hates you) teach it Frustration. What other Pokémon are on your team? If you have too many Dragon types you'll find lots of Fairy and Ice types in the Battle Tree.
i was gonna make a well-rounded team so they can cover each of there weakness, Salamence and naganadel are two of 4 i chose
It looks like a fast physical sweeper, so I would say Naive.
How is naive better than jolly?

Jolly or Adamant are the most common Natures and are used on physical sweeper Salamences (usually a Dragon Dance set.

Niave is a niche used for Mixed Mence, almost unheard of.

I would personally recommend Adamant because after one DD there isn't much that outspeeds Salamence anyways.

Alright, I'll do that with him what about this moveset: Dragon Dance, Iron Tail, Outrage, and Return.
Use earthquake and roost instead of iron tail and outrage.
Why Earthquake and roost?
Earthquake covers the electric, rock, and steel Pokemon that might resist return. Roost lets you heal yourself when facing a more defensive opponent. Iron tail and outrage do cover a few things, but return already covers them better.
So, Earthquake, Dragon Dance, Return, and Roost?
You could use Double Edge instead of Return.
i really don't do moves that cause recoil unless they have good Hp to go with it. I dont want to use the move than end up fainting from a opponent's attack.

Well Mega Sceptile Outspeedds Mega Salamence just from mega evolving with no stats changes. But my mega salamence will out speed Mega Sceptile after one DD.
