Pokemon natures are one of the most overlooked features of any Pokemon game, here's how to change yours!

With the release of the first-ever Pokemon expansion pack next month, the Isle of Armor, a lot of trainers are wondering what Pokemon they are going to add to their teams.

It's important to get the right nature for your Pokemon to get the best possible team as some can significantly weaken your Pokemon.

Luckily, there is a handy way to change the nature of your Pokemon - here's how to do it!

Mints

After the conclusion of the main storyline of Pokemon Sword and Shield, you will gain access to the Battle Tower. If you haven't experienced it, this is a gauntlet of trainers that you will be able to take on and earn rewards by doing so.

With all of the tokens you obtain from defeating trainers at the Battle Tower, you can head down to the store and purchase some items.

 

One of these items is called "Mints" and they are going to be the core component in regards to changing your Pokemon's nature.

There is a wide array of Mints that you can purchase at the Wyndon Battle Point shop and they all have different effects on your Pokemon.
