so if I'm unsure about witch nature I should get for a Pokemon, I usually go for a nuetral one....... is that a mistake or a reasonable assumtion?

Depends which Pokemon you have a neutral nature on.
In general, the best nature raises your most useful stat and lowers your most useless stat. I don't think all your stats will ever be equally useful, so don't use neutral natures.
You can get away with a neutral nature if you're playing the story in-game, but by the sounds of things you're actually putting thought into the optimal nature. In that case, yeah neutral natures are never optimal.
